    Is anyone else receiving a large amount of these errors? I'm unable to complete the majority of my games because of them. I live in New Zealand and do not have an ethernet adapter for my WiiU, could this be a cause of the problem?

    Is your Internet connection wired or wireless?

    I'm sure it's not just on your part, it's possible that there are groups of friends all disconnecting at the same time. It's mostly Nintendo's fault for not making better matchmaking so you'll just have to deal with it for now.

    There's a number of reasons this problem occurs to you, I can't help without you providing more information.
    What's your internet connection speed, do you use 2.4GHz or 5GHz Wifi, how was the access point mounted, where is your Wii U, what's the distance between the devices?
    We can't really tell whether it's your wireless connection or your internet connection, sure there's also the Problem Ikieri describes but it shouldn't be as bad as you are describing.

    Please keep in mind that using the internet for surfing, even streaming can't be compared to real-time applications like gaming or VoIP. Going wired might solve your problems, getting a different ISP might solve your problems as well, like I said, we can't tell at this point.

    It happened a lot to me during the testfire, which pushed me into buying a new modem/router. It works fine now, although the lag still exists if I am playing against Japanese or European players (regional matchmaking when?).

    The connection from my WiiU to my router is wireless, but obviously my router to the street is wired. As I said, I don't have an ethernet adapter for my WiiU.

    In the games I've played since yesterday, I only saw one person drop apart from myself.

    Connection speed of 12.5/1, can't remember my wireless speed. Access point is mounted about 2 meters from my WiiU with several aerials.
    I usually encounter no issues when playing any other PC game; Splatoon is the first game I've tried to play online from my WiiU. I've been looking at upgrading my internet for a little while now but there's been no real need to, maybe this might be the tipping point.

    I was getting the issue last night as well, but it's now 7:30am here and I'm still encountering the same issues when trying to play. A friend mentioned to me that Dota and CSGO servers in Australia were messing up, and I thought for a moment that New Zealand's internet as a whole was having issues, but that may have just been a coincidence.

    I'm going to pick up an ethernet adapter today regardless, but I really hope this isn't a problem on my end.

    I've heard about this a bit, but I've never gotten the error. Try contacting Nintendo.

    Since last posting I've had it happen fairly randomly with no particular patterns. Annoyingly, it mainly seems to happen after playing through a round, and occurs right next to the end. I'm not really sure why this is happening in the first place, and Nintendo don't seem to offer a way to contact them outside of a phone line which I don't think is what will help with technical issues. Is it known if there is a livechat?

    Please excuse the double post.

    Im intending to pick up an ethernet adapter tomorrow from a local store, but I don't know which one to get. Price is obviously an issue, and the one I was intending to pick up (http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z...X-EU-4208-USB-2.0-to-RJ45-Ethernet-10100-Mbps) reportedly doesn't work with the WiiU according to a review on NewEgg.

    If anyone has experience with any of the adapters on the following search, could they please let me know which worked for them?

    Thank you. I've found that apparently the ASIX AX88772 chip is the one to use, can anyone confirm this or does anyone know if other chips work?

    Thank you, it looks like I'll have to order the alternate one. I found that for some reason, moving my WiiU 50cm to the right of where it was has mostly fixed my connection, but I am consistently dropping on Skatepark for some odd reason.
