| Nintendo - Current Network Status

I suspect that this was due to the extended maintenance.  I would wait until about 30 minutes to an hour after the stated time and then try again.  Things should be back to normal after then.

I'm not sure if my console update worked either, my console is as slow as it was the day I bought it, I noticed no difference at all, any suggestions people?

What exactly is slow with it? In game playing all together, or is this a connectivity matter you're referring to?

Are you connected via a cable or wireless connection?

Zaaxx12,

Apologies for the delay in response, but wanted to check with you and see if you were able to succesfully update the game?

Everything takes ages to load up, like really slow. I've spoken with other people and they say all these issues went away with the last console update. I did that update and noticed no difference in performance..

Have you tried to port forward your router? You can check out our knowledge base article about which ports to forward, as well as general tips/answers about latency.

Try that out and let me know if that helps at all.

I have no problem connecting to the game or any game, what I was saying in a previous thread was I didn't think the WiiU was such a great console, it takes ages to get started on the thing. The old wii was more or less instant to get going, but the WiiU was slow. There was a console update this summer which was supposed to solve that, and everybody else says it has, but my WiiU performs exactly the same as when I bought it. I suspected the download didn't finish, but it says it has and there is no more updates, so like Padiego says, maybe I have a faulty WiiU.

I have done all the port forwarding stuff and gone wired and everything else suggested to me for a better gaming experience, but nothing worked. I appreciate you taking the time for that link, thanks..
