Go into your Wii wireless settings and choose wireless network connection, then choose the type of network security and then put in the password for the network. You may need to delete the profile of that network on the wii and start over for it to allow you to input your password for the wireless network again if it was typed incorrectly. If it still doesn't work you may need to reset the password of your wireless router.

Error code 32004

we need to start from square one... let's do this

Power on your Wii console and press the A Button on the Wii Remote to reach the Wii main menu. Use the Wii Remote to select the "Wii" button.

Now, select "Wii Settings" to access the "Wii System Settings" menu.

Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, scroll to page two and select "Internet."

Select "Connection 1: None"

(Don't see "None" in Connection 1? Click the Connection 1 button, then choose "Clear Settings.")

Click on "Wireless Connection" and then "Search for an Access Point."

(Are you using a wired Internet connection to your Wii console?

Select "OK" and the Wii will display all the wireless networks it finds.

Select the wireless network that is yours.

If you are prompted to "Enter the Password or Key," then the wireless network you are trying to connect to has wireless security turned on. You will need to type in your security key or password and select "OK."

Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."

The Wii console will run a connection test with your wireless network when the test is completed. You should see the following screen:

As long as you see "The connection test was successful," the "Wii Support Code" does not matter and can be ignored

The connection test was successful - Then you're almost done! After your connection test, the Wii console will check if there is a new Wii System Update available. Once you select "Yes" and "I Accept," the Wii will begin to download any available updates. Click here to find out what's next!

The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.

Error Code 51330 or 52130: This means the security code you entered into the Wii is not the same one your router is set to. Look in your router's settings and try again.

As a last resort... 1. reset your router or 2. temporarily remove the password from your router... this way you will know where the problems lies.

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.

I can get my wii to connect to wireless internet off my wireless router, because i am unable to find the password for it, were shoulkd i be able to find it?

If it is indeed your wireless router and it still has the manufacturer's password, then it will be either on the router itself or the manual. If someone has changed the password then you could always reset the router to manufacturer's settings, but i suspect that the person who set the password in the first place wouldn't like that.

I cant get my wii to hook up to the router

Try resetting your router. Do this by having physical access to you router, and there should be a reset button (or hole) in the back of your router. You may need a pin or something very skinny to fit it through. Hold it for 20 or 30 seconds. After it is reset, type in your address bar When a dialog box appears asking you for your username and password, leave the username field blank and type in admin for the password. The router configuration page should load up. Scroll down and change the Local IP Address to Scroll down and click save settings. Atttempt to configure your Wii's wireless internet settings all over. Your Wii should be able to connect to the internet now.

Wireless key to set up DS & Wii ?

If you don't have a record of the original key that was entered in the router, you could just completely reset the router and reconfigure it from scratch with a new wireless key. If the Internet connection goes through a cable modem or DSL modem, you can probably get by with this fairly painlessly...assuming you have the instructions and setup software.(?) If this router connects directly to a phone line or tv cable, then you'll need passwords and other settings provided by your ISP in order to reset and restore operation. Hope this is helpful...
