Unable to connect to the Internet Confirm the Internet settings of the wii console. Error code 50299.


Go to internet options on your Wii settings, select internet, and then connection settings. Once that is done you will be able to see the wifi connection. Click the wifi connection and delete it. Try to reconnect the Wii to your wifi router and you should have success connecting to the internet. If it doesn't connect repeat the steps listed above.

Tried to set netflix on my wii and an error code came up 50299


Hey, here are your options:

  • Power cycle your home network and perform a connection test on the Wii.
    If your Wii was previously connected online, and no changes have been made to your home network, perform the following steps (if you have not previously connected your system online, skip to the next bullet point):
    1. Remove the power from your wireless modem and router. Plug the power back into both devices, starting with the modem.
    2. From the Wii Menu, select "Wii" in the lower-left corner, and then select "Wii Settings." Use the arrow on the right to move to the second page, then select "Internet," followed by "Connection Settings." Last, select your connection file, and the select "Connection test."


  • Create a new connection file.
  • Set up a new connection file making sure the Wii is attempting to connect to the appropriate wireless network and is receiving a strong wireless signal. How to Wirelessly Connect the Wii to the Internet Nintendo Support

I am trying to hook up Netflix through my Wii and i can't seem to connect to my wirleless internet in my home. My computer's have no problem getting the Wi-Fi signal.


Reboot your wireless internet and move your Wii closer to the source of the wireless internet. Oftentimes the nintendo wireless receivers are far weaker than the wireless cards in computers or other wireless devices, so moving it closer should help. If this doesn't work, you can purchase a LAN extension for you wii and hook it up to the internet directly through a wired connection. Let me know if you need anything else.

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.

As long as your Wii can detect the "network" in your house, you can connect to the internet, and hook up to netflix wirelessly. Start your Wii and go to "wii options" in the lower left corner. Then click on Wii settings and then scroll to page two. Then click on "INTERNET". You will then go to Connection settings. From there choose wireless and let it find your router. You will need to enter the "passphrase" for the router, to connect. SAVE your settings and each time you start the Wii it will automaticly connect.
