Fixed! Multiple messages being received from Nintendo

This post is one of several on how to fix problems with your Nintendo Wii. To see the entire list, click here for the Nintendo Wii Repair Guide.


Are you receiving multiple messages being received from Nintendo on you Wii Console? This is an odd and relatively unusual occurrence for the Nintendo Wii console that can be very annoying.

While I have not personally experienced the issue, according to the Nintendo website, this can happen if you are using a proxy server, anonymizer, or other similar tools to "proxy" or "hide" your IP address of your network to which the Nintendo Wii is hooked up to.

If you are seeing this problem, please look at the excerpt below from the Nintendo Wii support website.

From the Nintendo Support Site:
If you are receiving multiple copies of the same Message Board messages from Nintendo, it is likely due to your Wii console being connected through a proxy server. Proxy servers handle the internet connections for a network of multiple computers, and are usually found in places like businesses and college campuses. Some home Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use a transparent proxy server as well. Multiple messages can appear in the Wii's Message Board because the proxy server is assigning a new date for when the information was last modified. Because the message is being modified, the Wii console sees this as a new message and continues to receive it over and over. This is not an issue with the Wii console or Nintendo's servers. To potentially resolve this issue, please try the following:

  • If you're connecting through a proxy server:
    Try disabling the proxy server or connect the Wii console from outside of the proxy server. If you are unable to do so, you will need to contact your proxy administrator to request that they not change the modified date on objects received through the proxy. They may be able to disable this on a per domain or per user basis. If so, the administrator should disable this setting for the nintendowifi.net domain (including all subdomains).
  • If you don't know if you're connecting through a proxy server:
    Try contacting your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to request that they not change the modified date on objects received through the proxy. The ISP may be able to disable this on a per domain or per user basis. If so, the ISP should disable this setting for the nintendowifi.net domain (including all subdomains).
  • If the above options do not work:
    If none of these options work for you, you can try leaving an unopened message in your Wii Connect 24 message area. This may prevent additional emails from being delivered. If this does not work, you may want to consider turning off the Wii Connect 24 messaging (how to) until you can use the Wii outside of a proxy server.
Still receiving multiple messages after reading the above tips from Nintendo? Let me know with a comment and I will see if I can track it down for you!
