What ever the password is for the wireless router when it was set up for 'wireless'. If you are using the wirless router you need to choose which network you are logging onto and then put in the password to get access to it. If you do not know it ask the person who set up the router what password they used.

I am trying to connect Netflix to my Wii and I keep getting error code 51330 and 51331. I don't know what these errors are. I am trying to set up with wireless internet.


From Nintendo:
Error Code 51330, 51331, and 51332
    It appears that the wireless security pass code for your home network may have been changed or is entered incorrectly on the Wii console. Click here for more information about WEP and WPA security, including how to access the settings for your Access Point.
If your wireless network password isn't wrong, reply. Hope this helps somewhat.

I keep getting error code: 51330 when trying to connect wirelessly to the internet.


This was the information on error code 51330 on Nintendo.com


Error Code: 51330
Unable to connect to your wireless network


Likely cause: It appears that the password (also known as a WPA or WEP key) entered into the Wii console is not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow.


How to fix: Make sure the password is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Security keys are case sensitive.



Don't know how to find your router's password?

Look for a sticker on the bottom of your router. Many routers provided by Internet service providers have their default password located on a sticker on the bottom of the router.

I have an error coming up on my screen for the wii saying unable to connect to the internet error 51330


The error 51330 normally means that the password or WEP key you entered to connect to the internet through the Wii did not match the one the wireless router needs to allow connection.
If you don't know the password, check to bottom of your router, it will usually have a sticker on the bottom with the standard password on it. This can also be marked as WEP key or WPA key. Enter that password exactly as it appears there, as it is case sensitive. If the password is correct and the problem still exists, try turning your router off, waiting 30 seconds to a minute, then turning it back on. Let it set itself up again, this will usually take a minute or two, then try connecting your Wii to the internet again. If the problem continues, try altering your routers wireless channel setting. As most routers work on channel 6 by default, there could be interference. This process is different for each router.

Error code 51330 trying 2 connect 2 internet by wireless tds SSID#D2VT9


Hello!
The usual cause of error code 51330 appears to be that the password (also known as a WPA or WEP key) entered into the Wii console is not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow.


This is how to fix it:

Make sure the password is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Security keys are case sensitive.

If this does not work, I would suggest doing a power cycle of your modem and router. This is done by following these steps:
  • Unplug both the modem and the router from the power outlet.
  • Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in.
  • Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router.
  • Try to connect the Wii, Nintendo DS, or Nintendo 3DS online and test for proper response

I get error code 51330 when trying to connect my wii console wirelessly to watch a movie


You're using a wireless router?
Try to first set your wireless to simple WEP with a simple password.
Try to connect with your wii, check network setting and see what ip it's giving you. If it's 192.168.x.x then you should be ok. And try again.
Once you get this to work, you can try the more secure WPA and WPA2 with TKIP :)

Trying to connect my wii to the internet, am puttin my password in and its giving me an error code 51330


Error Code: 51330 This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:
  1. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
    1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
    2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
    3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
    6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
    7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
      • WPA - PSK (TKIP)
      • WPA - PSK (AES)
      • WPA2 - PSK (AES)

  2. If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:
    1. From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
    2. If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings).
    3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.


  3. Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
    1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page.
    2. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
    3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
    4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."


  4. Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. 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. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.


  5. Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.
