How can I fix "Cannot connect to MW3 servers. Try again later. Wii

I have had MW3 for months, so I have played multiplayer before.  This isn't one of those problems with people that need to change crap on their routers.  My problem is that i can't connect to the servers.  First off, my other profiles worked fine, but one day, all new profiles that would be made, couldn't get online.  Next issue is that the leaderboards were all screwy and showed false statistics, couldn't compare my stats or anything.  After that, some stats that I already played were deleted as if I never played that day.  So I decided that it might be that my data was screwed up, and I performed a wii system memory formatt.  After I did that, I created a new profile and tried getting online, but it only said "Cannot connect to MW3 servers. Please try again later.

I just want to know if this is a problem that can be fixed.  Could it be that the servers are too populated and can't hold any new people/profiles?

I'm having the same problem. Starting a couple days ago, any new profile I made, when I tried to play online multiplayer, it said could not connect to server.

So I went to the Wii menu and deleted the CoD MW3 data, thinking it got corrupted somehow and this might fix it.

Apparently that was the wrong move to make, because now all 4 of my profiles get the same error.

Anybody have ideas on how to fix this? As it is, the game is totally broken for me. I can't play multiplayer at all.

Mine say's V.0.0 in top right. Treid fowarding ports, it WAS working fine before anyway......Seemed to be when I made a new profile, because a hacker messed up my XP.

Can't download patch again either from Wii Store.

Ideas on how to fix this would be good?

Stick with Goldeneye for now.

For a while there, hackers were running rampant with account hopping.. also it is possible for them to acquire your who's mac address and ban your mac address from the servers.. granted most of the time this is not permant, but since Activision and Treyarch don't care you might be pretty much screwed.. you can try using another Wii and see if that works, if it doesn't then I'm stumped..
