    The Wii system and the router were setup to
    converse with each other, when the Wii was
    bought. This problem between the Wii,PSP connecting to the router is a recent problem
    that started when I had to replace my modem

Hard reset everything.

Power down and unplug (except P/C) every component in the network for 5 minutes for a hard re-set... Then plug in/turn on in the following order -

  1. Modem - wait until fully powered on before moving on.
  2. Router - wait again until fully powered on before going to next step.
  3. Main P/C - again - wait until windows loads fully.
  4. Wii
  5. PSP
  6. Other
This will allow each peripheral to connect at the same address without problems.

If you have a G speed router - you may think of upgrading to N for online gaming.
G speed have larger wavelength frequency and are easily dropped thru walls, another router near your home, or interference from phones powerlines etc.

You need to reset your router.  There should be a reset button on the back.  Do this and redo the cd and reset up your Wii.

Hi,

  • orking with the SPI Firewall
    If you are able to log in and disable the router or gateway's firewall, you may be able to get the Wii console connected online. To do this you may need to get a "super user" password from your ISP.
  • Updating your Wii console
    If you use an ISP that prevents the firewall or SPI firewall setting from being adjusted, or if you prefer not to adjust the router's firewall, updating your Wii console with the latest system menu may resolve the console's ability to connect with Nintendo's servers. (This may be especially true if your Wii has not been updated to Wii Menu 2.2* or higher. Link here for information on determining which Wii menu version you have.) To download the system update to your Wii system, you will need to successfully connect your Wii console online. If your current connection through your ISP-provided router is preventing a connection, you will need to find an alternative online connection, such as taking your Wii console to a friend's house where there is a compatible internet connection. If this option is not available to you, link here for information on other options. If after performing this update you are still experiencing problem

Hi!

You need to search for your access point from your wii console and then put in your security settings. You have to search for wireless networks again, based on the interface, it will not automatically connect to any of them, you have to set them up first.

Are you using a full version of internet channel which is a version of the Opera 9 Web browser? Try moving your wii closer to your router to improve the signal.

Check that your network signal is strong enough

    Check that the problem is not just a weak signal from the network, remove any possible cause of disturbance (metal panels, TV etc.) between the Wii and the router.

    If you still get the problem, it may be an issue with the Wii network adapter, in this case call Nintendo support, they may offer you a replacement.

    I thought that the router was working.

    If the router is not working at all, not even with a wired computer, then you need to call your Broadband service provider, and follow the step by step indications to set up your network, with the settings they give you.

    If you tell me your provider and location I can find the number.

How to connect your Nintendo Wii to the internet


Hello,

In this tips and tricks guide I will go over the steps you will need to take if you wish to connect your Nintendo Wii to the internet. If you want to connect wireless you will need to be within range of a wireless access point. If you wish to connect via a wired connection(Ethernet to modem or Ethernet to router) you will need a Wii LAN adapter which is sold separately.

-Power on the console and press the A button to reach the Wii menu. At the menu, use your remote to select the Wii button at the bottom left.

g33k4u.gif

-Now select "Wii settings"
-Now, hit the arrow on the right side of the screen to go to the next page and select "Internet"

g33k4u.png

-Select "Connection 1: none"
-Select "Wireless Connection" then select "Search for An Access Point"
-Select "OK" then the Wii will display all the wireless access points(wireless routers) that are in range.
-Select the wireless access point you wish to use.
-If the access point requires a security key, you will need to enter this key in. This key is set when you first configure your wireless router.
-Select "OK", then "Save Settings", and then "Yes".
At this point your Wii will now test the internet connection.

If you are using a Wired connection then you can connect the Wii directly to the router or modem and not use WiFi. Wii LAN Adapters are sold separately. If you have the LAN Adapter, follow the steps above up to the point were you select a connection type. You will select "Wired" instead of "Wireless. The Wii will now test your internet connection.

I hope this guide has helped you connect your Wii to the internet. Enjoy!

Regards,
G33k

I am trying to access the internet to get netflix on a used Wii. It is saying error code 51420. What do I do?


Sometimes this happens because servers go down for nintendo. If this problem persists it might be caused by a third party adapter that is used to connect your wii to the internet.
