Trying to connect wii to wireless internet and recieving a error message code of 51331



Hey there. Hope this helps.

51331: this error is caused by the Wii being unable to connect to the access point

So what you need to do:

Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

If your router is using WEP encryption

  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with :
  • WPA - PSK(TKIP)
  • WPA - PSK(AES)
  • WPA2 - PSK(AES)
If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings.

MY WII WONT CONNECT WITH THE INTERNET


Is WiiConnect24 enabled? Can you find your router on your Wii and connect to it? Have you entered the correct WEP key when trying to connect to your router?
If none of these solve your problem, follow this guide: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/getOnline/index.jsp

Hello, I'm trying to connect my wii wireless and it keeps giving me an error code 51330 "unable to connect to the Internet" could you tell me what it means? Thank you.


Error Code: 51330
This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:
Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
  • Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
  • Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
  • If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
  • If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
  • The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
  • If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
  • If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
  1. WPA - PSK (TKIP)
  2. WPA - PSK (AES)
  3. WPA2 - PSK (AES)
But if the above information doesn't help correct this problem, then give a call to Nintendo's 1-800-255-3700 (6 am ~ 7 pm Pacific, everyday)

Okay, that error code usually is applied to your wireless security. Here's a website that should help you fix it.

Can't get Wii connected to internet wirelessly


Error Code: 51331 This 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.

Can i hook up my laptop to nintendo wifi


Nintendo's wireless connection will only support WEP security. So before connecting it wirelessly, check your wireless router/wireless access point and make sure that IF it has a wireless security configured on it, it's on WEP. So the wireless security should either be Disabled or at WEP. You can check these options on the router's Web UI. If you have a Linksys router, I could help you with it.


Now connecting your Nintendo DS:

Just check it out here.

Or follow these steps:

1. Setup Screen > tap "Nintendo Wi-Fi Settings".
2. Select a "Connection slot".
3. Tap "Search for an Access Point. (This will open a list of wireless networks detected.)
4. Select your network (or any network you want to connect to) and connect to it. It will ask your for the network key or WEP key if you have it setup on the router.

Trying to connect lap top


The WEP key is something you designate on your own router. IF you are trying to get into someone else's router you need to ask them for permission to have their WEP key. Otherwise you cant get in. If you forget your WEP key you can do a hard reset on the router to clear out the key.

Error Code 51331


Wii Error Code 51331 means there is a problem with wireless security.
Make sure your router’s WEP key matches the WEP Key you entered in the Wii.
If your router is using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be 10 characters.
For 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be 26 characters.
WEP Keys can only use the characters 0-9 and A-F.
If your router allows more than one WEP key to be entered at a time, make sure the key you’re using is on slot one.
If you double checked the WEP or WPA key with the router and the Wii and they match, but you still receive the Wii Error Code 51331, then MAC filtering may be enabled in the router. You will have to add your Wii’s MAC address to the router’s allowed list. You can do this by logging into your router and going to the “access control, access list, or network filter” settings.
If you still have trouble with Wii Error Code 51331, try changing the wireless router’s channel to 1 or 11. This may increase download speed.
Check Nintendo’s router page for special notes on your router if available. Follow the instructions of the special notes.
Your wireless router must broadcast in mixed or b/g mode and cannot be set to “g” only mode.
If you still encounter the Wii Error Code 51331, try doing manually setting up the Wii’s internet connection. You can find your network information to enter into the Wii by doing this:
On your PC, click “Start” and then “Run.”
Type “CMD” into the field that appears to open a new window.
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.
Power cycle the wireless router and modem by unplugging both from the wall. After waiting a minute, plug the modem back in and wait another couple of minutes for the modem to initialize. Plug the router in and wait for the router to initialize. Now try reconnecting the Wii to Nintendo WiFi Connection.

Hope this helps a little

HI THERE I WAS TRYING TO CONNECT MY WII TO THE INTERNET THOUGH WIRE LESS BUT IT TELLS ME I NEED A KEY WHAT KEY IS THIS AND HOW DO I GET IT


Hi ELAINETONKIN,

The key is a setting from the WiFi connection your trying to use. If it is a WEP WiFi connections you need the WEP Key, which is a long string of numbers and letters. If you are using a WPA WiFi then the key will be your WPA password/passpharse. This can be found on the routers settings, or instruction manual for the router. If you have a PC or laptop that uses this connection then you would have already needed to enter the Key on there to allow you to connect.
