I had my Wii U turned off, put the adapter in and then the ethernet cable. But, whenever I go into wired connection it tells me to plug in the adapter even though it's already in, whats the problem? (The adapter is an official nintendo product.)


I suggest getting a new Lan-Adapter (this one).

Make sure to follow those steps (How to Connect a Wii LAN Adapter to the Wii U) properly.

If that does not resolve your issue, you should get in contact with Nintendo Support, if you have not done so yet.
