240020: File format application/octet-stream not supported

When attempting to watch a full episode via the internet on the WII, it's telling me to download adobe flashplayer.  I tried, but I got the error of 240020: File format application/octet-stream not supported.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

The Wii's Internet browser doesn't support certain software that is required to play certain video on the Internet. You can't download that as well because its not supported by the Wii. So in other words, it's meant for computers.

make sure the broadcast is set to b and g or mixed and the channel is set to 1 or 11.

I looked at Nintendo's error code lookup and it says "

Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available).


Check your router's broadcast settings to find out if it is set to "G", "B", or "Mixed." Mixed typically works best, but try all three to see if it improves the network connection to the Wii console.


Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off. Wireless keyboards and mice may also cause interference"
