Can't hook my router too my wii.....error code 51330...it says password has been changed


Error Code: 51330This 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.

Xbox to mac


Kind of a big slap in the face for Microsoft, don't you think? Some pals of mine said Xbox blocks Mac media connections because they don't want Apple and Microsoft products mixing, although you can listen to an iPod on your Xbox. So, I'm not sure you can.

Connecting windstream dsl modem to xbox


Did you get a router, the dsl modem it self wont do much good, you need a router so it can assign your xbox an IP address. You need to have a router hooked up to the DSL modem, and the xbox hooked up to the router.

Ip address fails test connection


you need to set your 360's network to automatically detect your settings if you have other devices hooked up to the airport and they work it is not the Airport.

When it says IP address failed it has nothing to do with comcast it is your LAN having issues not your WAN

Trying to connect to xbox via my fonero+ router but with no luck, can you help?


If the xbox is hooked up with ethernet cable then make sure all settings are set to automatic. If your xbox is hooked up with a wireless device that is set up to router then, make sure all your mac addresses are correct and mae sure you set your IP's and DNS codes.

Wirelesss web access?


you have to acquire the MAC address from the game console and go to your routers MAC configuration and add that mac address. Since you have wireless, you need a secure connection so the mac address has to be set for all users. All non known mac addresses and IP's will be blocked and not able to connect to your PC
