Ok well the wii on the internet is grand I love it and so does my kids, so lets get you hooked up to the internet on your wii.

First off you will either need a wireless router to send the signal to your wii alot of the time I would suggest if there is any security on your router to take it off so that the signal is broadcasted automatically then after you get a connection setting it up to be on a secured connection is easy as it gets.

so if you let me know if you have wireless internet or not we can get you going in the right direction in no time at all

or if you want you can check out this from the nintendo website first and then ask any questions and we will hopefully get you going

My wii will not connect to the internet


Try moving the wii closer to your internet source. Have you changed any of your internet settings recently? If so, then that may cause it not to connect. Also, have you tried reseting the settings for both the wii and your internet (at your own risk)?

Trying to download netflix to our wii system


Go to Netflix.com/Wii to start your free trial, or if your Wii console is connected to the Internet, simply download Netflix from the Wii Shop Channel and follow the directions. All Wii consoles are able to connect to the Internet as long as you have a broadband Internet connection

I'm trying to connect my Wii to the Internet. I currently do not have a wifi connection but I have the adapter that connects to the internet. I have already changed the connection on the Internet...


you can try this step on how to connect your wii console on internet...

Error Code: 52020 What to do will depend on how you are connecting your Wii console. Please use the info below that describes how you are connecting.
    Connecting directly to a modem:
  1. Power off the Wii. Connect the official Nintendo Wii LAN adapter to the Wii, and insert a working ethernet cable into the official Nintendo Wii LAN Adapter.
  2. Unplug all devices from your modem. Most modems are unable to support more than one device at a time.
  3. Power cycle your modem. To do this, unplug the power from your modem and let it rest for 20 seconds. Plug the power back in. Connect the Ethernet cable from your Wii console to the Ethernet port on your modem.

  4. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP address, Default Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS information. To access these settings:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input these exactly as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection.
  5. If you are still unable to connect and you are using broadband Internet, then your ISP likely uses PPPoE to establish a connection to their network. The Wii is not compatible with PPPoE. Contact your ISP for more assistance.

    Connecting to a router:
  1. Ensure that an Ethernet Cable is running from the WAN or Internet Port on the router to the modem. Power cycle the modem by unplugging it from the electrical outlet, waiting a moment, and then plugging it back in.
  2. Power off the Wii console, and insert the Wii LAN Adapter into one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii console.
  3. Run an ethernet cable from the Wii to a numbered port on the router.
  4. Power on the Wii console, and run a connection test through the Wii console's online settings.
  5. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's settings on your PC:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input these as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection, except for the IP address. The IP address needs to be different. Add 10 to the IP address and use that number in the Wii console's settings.
if this help you please rate me thank you sir.....

Trying to connect to wireless internet


From the main channel menu on the Wii, hit the Wii button. Then navigate to Wii Settings > Internet (page 2). Select an empty connection, choose your connection type and then follow the on-screen instructions. You should first try choosing "Automatic" or "Auto-Detect" whenever possible. If that doesn't work, try using Manual settings.

Here's a detailed guide on how to set up an internet connection.

Hope this helps!

The wii is unable to connect to internet


It seems that it can't establish communication to your access point.

Nintendo Forum explanation:
Wii Error Code Group: 52020, 52021, 52022
Summary: Connection difficulty with either router or modem.

If automatic configuration is not working (it expects DHCP to anser; i.e. to get an assigned IP address) try manual configuration. Enter the values as you would on your PC to connect to the network.

Consult the Nintendo Forums for detailed help.
