What Causes the “Error Code 32007” on Wii?

After receiving numerous reports from multiple users, we decided to investigate the issue and devised a set of solutions that fixed the problem for most of our users. Also, we looked into the reasons due to which this error was triggered and listed them below:

  • Updates Disabled: If you have a Soft Modded Wii, it is possible that the Software updates might be blocked due to the modding on the console. Often, updates are blocked by mods/hacks to prevent being patched but in this case, even if you update the mod will not be patched.
  • Network Configurations: In some cases, the console’s network configurations aren’t set properly or are corrupted. Due to this, a secure connection to the server cannot be established and this error is triggered.
  • Cache: Certain launch configurations are cached by the console and the Internet Router to decrease loading times. If these configurations are corrupted the connection might not be established due to which this error is triggered.
  • Incorrect DNS Configurations: It is possible that the DNS configurations weren’t obtained correctly by the console due to which the connection isn’t being established correctly. DNS configurations are very important in order to establish a secure connection to the servers and if they aren’t configured properly this error might be triggered.

Now that you have a basic understanding of the nature of the problem, we will move on towards the solutions. Make sure to implement these in the specific order in which they are presented to avoid conflicts.
