Connecting to enternet

Make sure you have created a NEW internet connection in your Wii System settings. Since you have changed your service, your old connection settings will no longer work. Go to your system settings from your main Wii menu, and select internet connection to set up a new one.
If you have already tried to set up a new connection and still cannot connect to the internet, make sure your router security settings allow your Wii to connect to your wireless internet.

I have a wi console where stream net flix I can not get it to conect I keep getting error code 52130. How do I fix it.

To solve this error, try to manually setup the Wii console using your network IP settings.
To do a manual setup of the Wii console using your network IP settings :
  • On a PC, click Start > Run > type CMD and press Enter > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter. On Windows Vista, click Start > type CMD in the Start Search box > click on CMD icon > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter.
  • Locate IP settings and use them to manually set the Wii console.
  • Restart your wireless router by unpluging the power from the wall and plugging it back in. Try to connect the Wii console to the internet.
You may also try to disable the wireless router security or firewall. Try again to connect the Wii console to the internet.

if this help you please rate me tnx...

If i have wireless internect, how do i link my wii with it?

Wireless Connection
1. On the Wii console's main menu, click on the 'Wii button' in the lower left corner.
2. This will take you to the settings screen. On this screen, click on 'Wii Settings'.
3. In the 'Wii System Settings', click on the blue arrow on the right to reach the second screen of options. On this screen, click the 'Internet' button.
4. Select 'Connection Settings'.
5. Select an open connection, indicated by 'None'.
6. Select 'Wireless Connection'.
7. Select 'Search for an Access Point'.
8. At this point, the Wii console will search for any identifiable Access Points nearby. Once this search has completed, you will be directed to choose the Access Point that you wish to connect to. Click 'OK' to display the list of available Access Points.
9. Select your Access Point from the list of available Access Points.
If your connection appears as a closed padlock, then the Access Point requires a security code or passphrase. The security code or passphrase can usually be found on the security tab of your wireless router settings.
If your connection signal appears yellow or red, the stability or strength of the connection is not optimal. If possible, remove any obstacles between the Wii console and the Access Point. I've also found that changing the channel on your router to channel 1 or channel 11 can sometimes help with singal stability and strength.
10. Click 'Save' followed by 'OK' to save your connection settings...
11. ...and select OK again to start an automatic connection test.
If the test succeeds, Internet Setup is complete and your Wii conosle is wirelessly connected!

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!
