Error 111-9000 on Connecting to Nintendo eShop


“Error Code: 111-9000” on your Nintendo Wii U means your Nintendo gaming console cannot access the Nintendo eShop. It can also happen when accessing other online applications. This error is the result when your connection is timing out which is often caused by wireless interference. It can happen if there is a wireless interference between your wireless router and your Nintendo Wii U.

The easiest way to fix it is to transfer your Nintendo Wii U gaming console to the same room where your wireless router is located. The distance of your Nintendo system from the wireless router is important because the farther your Nintendo system from the wireless router is, the weaker its signal will be. And if your Nintendo system is receiving very weak signal, it can cause connection interruptions.

If moving your Nintendo system closer to your router is not possible, try moving any electronic devices or metal objects away from your Nintendo system and wireless router. Metal objects and electronic devices can cause or can interfere with wireless signals.
