Try switching your wireless router to channel 1. Also... have you setup all the security in your Wii to match your router?

I cant get internet acess so it told me to complain to you. :/

Here are step by step directions on how to set up your internet connection. Now the Nintendo Wii uses a wireless connection, so it's important to note here that you must have some type of wireless router, or internet connection that it can connect to!

Cant connect to wireless home hub

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.

Various factors affect connecting a Wii to the internet with a WiFi connection as well, 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.

This error is caused by a wireless router firewall issue. 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.

I took my wii to my sons house cant get internet service on my

First you need to have a wireless internet connection,
next you need to turn on your wii and go to wii system settings
then scroll over to internet
next go to connection settings and choose connection 1 2 or 3
choose wireless connection, then choose search for an access point
then it will give you a list of connections choose the one thats yours
and if you put in a passcode with your wireless router you will need to input that
after all of that it will start a connection test and if you did it correctly it should say... The connection test was successful. Perform a wii system update now?
Congrats wii your new wii Wi-Finess

I cant get on to the internet

o.k I to at first did not know how to get on the internet but it is not too hard.

first there is only two ways to get on the internet using the Nintendo Wii.

(1) you can easily connect to internet if you have a wireless connection in your home.

(2) you must purchase a USB Ethernet adapter. this adapter plugs into the USB port on the back of the Wii. You then must have a router with a port available. Run the Ethernet cable from the Wii connector to your available port on your router.

For either connection you then go into your Wii options ang continue into settings on your Wii. make sure you then chose the arrow to go to the next page. Click internet, connection settings, click connection 1 to set up. chose wired or wireless connection, It will then initiate a test and if all is good you will now have internet connection.

if you still have problems visit the wii website

here is a demo :

Cant connect my wii get error 51030

This might be handy: and
Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed.

Verify that the proper Connection File (1, 2, or 3) is selected in the Wii System Settings.

If you have multiple connection files setup, and you have recently received a system update, it is possible that the update has caused the Wii console to select a different Connection File. Click here for step-by-step instructions on viewing your connection settings.

Make sure that your network's name (SSID) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings.

Log in to your router using the default IP (consult the router's owner's manual for assistance).

Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the Internet Settings of your Wii console that the SSID is appearing exactly as listed in your router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.
