If you have forgotten the security key you can simply hold the reset button in the wireless router for 30 seconds to restore it to defaults, this will remove the key code and you should be albe to connect with wii but so will be anyone else who happens to come nearby the house.

How do you set up Internet on the wii?


To access the internet with your wii console you'll need either a wireless router/gateway, or a wii wired LAN connector.

1. Power on your Wii console
2. Access the "Wii Setting" menu by selecting the circular wii icon in the bottom left of the screen and then choosing wii settings.
3. Use the arrow on the right of the screen to move to page two, then select "internet".
4. Select "Connection 1 ' None"
5. Choose "Wireless Connection" (assuming you have a wireless router), then select "Search for Access Point".
6. Wait for your wii to scan, then select your wireless network, and if prompted enter your wireless network password/key. Then click "OK".

You should now be able to connect to the internet. If your Wii runs a connection test and it proves unsuccessful it will display an error code. If you get Error Code 51330 or 52130 this means the password you entered does not match the password on the wireless network you are attempting to join. A list of all other error codes and what they mean can be found here: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/onlineErrorCodes.jsp

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.

I am trying to watch a movie on net flix, however everytime I tried to look for the internet service the following error comes up: Error code 51330 is unable to connect to the internet.


Hi there!
Error code 51330 on the Wii means that the password you entered into the Wii to set up your internet was entered incorrectly. You will need to go back into your internet connections settings menu on your Wii and enter the correct password/security key for your router. Please remember the security key is case sensitive.
Hope this helps!
