My Wii Shopping complaints..
1) My router couldn’t connect to my Wii.
2) The Wii points are in USD.
3) CDN Taxes on top of the Wii points price.
My Wi-fi connection has always given me problems..
When my DS USB Connector broke and I had to rely on my wireless router, I had to fiddle with the router to get it to work with my DS. Recently, everytime I tried to connect to the Shopping Channel it just kept accessing…and accessing..sometimes an error message would result but most times it just froze there..looking for a connection. There was no way to exit the “connecting..” screen so I had to power down my system again and again. Today I decided I would take time out to look into the problem and figure out how to solve it…finally.
Nintendo.com was the first place I looked and proved to be the place to check for connection difficulties. I tried a few of their steps…and seconds later.. Ta-Da! I was on my way to purchase Wii Points! (Damn neighbours and all their wireless devices interfering with my connections) I can just hear the voice of the Staples EASY Button.. “That was easy”… haha. Only bought enough points for two purchases: Castlevania IV(I’ve been enjoying Portrait of Ruin on the DS (Yay Charlotte!) that I thought I’d go back in time to play one of the originals. The enemies are really creepy which make me want to kill them even more.)and Bonks Adventure.
Since I was on the site I decided to order new wii straps as well. I actually don’t like the wrist strap (it gets in the way). But I guess its protects my tv, and window, and others around me(well scratch that, I’ve already hit a few people with the wiimote)..My cat will enjoy chewing the old straps thats for sure.
