Yea, my connection got interrupted while downloading (WiFi connection) but luckily it just started again at the same spot.  Not sure why it messed up but probably due to a lot of people trying to update right now.  I am sitting at over 2/3 done on downloading.  Probably only been going for about 25-30 mins for me so far.  I have about a ~20 mbps connection.



I'm nearing the hour mark and around the 80-90% mark. Now I'm paranoid that something is going to happen to cause my WiiU to shut off and brick it.

Was this ethernet dongle thing ever an issue?

Wait, let me rephrase: Was it ever an honest problem?

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Dongle? Do you mean the USB -> Ethernet adapter?

If so, good. I have one for my Wii - good to know it'll work on the Wii-U too!

Glad to hear it, seeing as my Wii U isn't connecting to my wifi...
My router is mad old...
I want to the Nintendo Support website and did everything they said, but it still won't connect...
It will connect to the router, but the router won't get it to connect to the internet...
I'm hoping that I can fix that using the USB/ethernet chord...
Unless anyone else has any other suggestions...

Have a nice day...
