I'm getting error code 51030

Hello Carole,

"Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this, 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 online and test for proper response.

If that doesn't work, erase your old connection settings on the Wii and set up a new one, as your router's settings may have changed since you last connected.

If that still won't work, reset your router so it will go back to factory settings. To do that, look for the reset button locatd at the back of your router. Use a pin to press and hold it for 10 seconds.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I keep trying to connect my wii to the Internet but it always says error code:51330

This error code points to your security settings for you Wii system. They probably don't match up with the settings for your router.
1) Check your router's security settings and make sure that the settings you have entered for your Wii system are EXACTLY the same.
2) After you have double checked and changed any settings as applicable, try restarting your system and logging on to the internet again.
3) If this doesn't work, try cycling your modem and router by unplugging them both, then plug in the modem for a few minutes, then plugging in the router after. This should refresh your home network.
4) If the problem still persists, try creating a new connection on your Wii with the proper settings, making sure that everything you enter is correct for your router.

How do you connect the internet to the wii i have wireless in the house and it still wont connect

First, you have to go through the Internet connection setup process through the console and you've made no mention that you've attempted that so I wanted to make you aware of that. On the main menu, go to the lower left corner and click on the round Wii button. A new menu will appear with two options: Data Management and Wii Settings. Select Wii Settings. Go to the second page and choose Internet. Select Connection 1: None. Select Wireless Connection. Select Search For An Access Point. A network list will appear, select yours. You will then be prompted to enter the password/network key that you established when you set up your wireless router. The Wii will attempt to test the connection. If successful save your settings.
Second, simply because you have Wireless in the house it doesn't mean that it your wireless router has signal strength to reach the WIi. Various factors affect this including signal strength, distance from the wireless router to the console and obstacles such as walls and ceilings that interfere with the signal. If you're using a G router and you have your Wii is too far away or, has obstacles in the way, it will not connect. You should use an N-Router if there is a significant distance between the console and the router or if there are obstacles. Here is everything you need to know about connecting your Wii to the Internet.
Good luck!

I am trying to link my wii to internet but after testing connection error code 51330 appears on screen. what am i doingg wrong?

Error 51330 means that there is an issue with your wireless router. It is unclear as to exactly what causes it, because it can be different things.

Most people that get 51330 fix it by updating the firmware for their router. To do that, you need to go to the router's control panel page, which can usually be found by clicking here or typing into your address bar. Check your instruction manual if that doesn't work.
Also be SURE to restart the router after you update the firmware.

If that doesn't work, try doing some of these things (all done from the router page):
Change the channel to 1 or 11
Reserve an IP for the Wii
Make sure the frequency is set to Mixed B/G, not just G.

If none of that works, I would recommend getting a new/better wireless router.

Can't Connectda


Restore your router to factory settings, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses on the router.

The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Can't get on line

If you are using an access point or a router to get onto the internet you have to ensure that the unit has been set to accept the Xbox 360 as an authorized unit.
