Wii Dilemma (Wiilemma?) Wii have a problem!!! Answered

I just bought a year old used wii. I am worried. I have wi-fi. I want to use the wii with wi-fi. I had read that when the wii launched, a wiiconnect24 update made some wii units completely unusable! I am worried. The people who I bought it from never used wi-fi on the wii. It had a 1 year warranty, which expires in about 3 weeks. I got a good deal on the wii, so shut up. Question: If I update it now, will it crash??


Yo hablo espanol tambien.....

¿Vives tú en Puerto Rico?

Si, y preguntaste incorrectamente, lo correcto es: Tuvives en Puerto Rico?

No sorry (But I might know what you said : No speak spanish?)

"You don't know spanish?"

Well yeah I only know little spanish

mines a nov 19 wii ( special edition from the day wii launched) and it works 100%

I already bought, and updated it! I only have Mario Kart wii though. I played online. Next, Im gonna buy the Internet Channel, and borrow a few games from my friends. It's fun!

cool, i got my internet channel free, because I was one of the first people to get it , and was a tester.

Thanks for your help guys! I accepted the offer! I will pick it up in the next week! Good to know I can always count on you people!

yeah, we're awesome. we know.

I maked a fwiend!
I like me too =P

Now I like you even more!

cause everything we touch, i get this feeling and every time we kiss, i think i can fly just singing again

I can feel your heart beat slow I want you to know, I need you by my-dammit! Now You got ME singing too! Oh, this reminds me of my 2nd most embarrassing moment ever...gotta find that old thread on the forums.....

what ever, as long as you guys keep it pg i don't really care

accidently in love.... What?!?!?! I'm just singing here!

I haven't heard about this from anyone I know that has one. Just update it!

I have a friend who bought a used Wii. He never had the problem you talked about. You should be fine.

Sell it for more than you paid for. ;-)

For 200, I get the wii, wii sports obviously, 2 wiimotes, 2 nunchuks, mario cart wii and 2 of those steering wheel things for the wiimote. Sweet deel!

Just do it! It was a firmware problem, I'm sure they fixed it, and if not it's still under warranty.

Mine works perfectly fine with wi-fi. It's all up to date. Plus, you answered yourself in your post. The warranty expires in 3 weeks. If it's during an upgrade, and nothing of your fault, it would not be unreasonable for them to fix the problem.

I said the 3 weeks thing, but I don't really know if it still has a warranty....

From what I've heard, the only people who have had broken wii's after an update hacked their wii's and used homebrew software on them. As long as you don't do that sort of stuff (homebrew channel), you'll probably be fine. I think you can still use WiFi & disable updates, though...
