This modem that you are using is it a Cable or DSL modem. If so is it a combination modem and router? If not then you have to purchase a router so that you can connect your computer and Wii at the same time.

I just signed up for netflix and am trying to hook it up to my wii to watch movies. The wii is properly connected and hooked up, and we have a wireless internet connection in my home, however when i go to...


Error code 51030 means you Wii is unable to connect to your wireless network.
Try unplugging your modem and wireless router, then plugging them back in after a couple minutes.
While you're waiting for your modem and router, delete your network setting from your Wii, and set them back up once your router and modem are back up.
Your wireless router's setting might have changed and your Wii might not be able to properly connect.

I have direct tv and I am trying to hook my wii up so I can watch netflix it is giving me an error 51420


Error Code: 51420

The Wii console is not able to connect to your wired router or modem.

1. If your connection worked previously, check to see if there is a Wii System Update that you have not aquired. To get the latest Wii System Update:
1. From the Wii's main menu, select the Wii icon along the bottom left of the screen.
2. Select "Wii Settings".
3. Click the left arrow to get to Wii System Settings 3
4. Choose "Wii System Update"
5. Choose "Yes" to connect to the internet and perform a Wii system update.

2. Make sure that you are using the Wii LAN Adapter made by Nintendo (click here for a picture and connection steps). LAN adapters not made by Nintendo likely will not work with the Wii console.

3. Check to make sure you are not running the Wii LAN Adapter from a USB hub (a device that connects multiple USB products through a single device), as this will likely not work. Connect the USB Connector directly to the modem or router.

4. Ensure that the Wii LAN Adapter setup is correct, and that the Wii LAN Adapter was connected with the console turned off. For step by step connection instructions, please click here.

5. Check to see if the ethernet cable you are using is not working properly, by connecting another ethernet cable from your router/modem to the Wii LAN Adapter. If the connection works using a different cable, then the problem was with the first cable.

6. If possible, try another Wii LAN Adapter. If you are unable to try another Wii LAN Adapter, or are still receiving this error code, please call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance.

Bought a pre owned wii and im trying to hook it to the internet but it says error 52020


What to do will depend on how you are connecting your Wii console. Please use the info below that describes how you are connecting.

Connecting directly to a modem:
1. Power off the Wii. Connect the official Nintendo Wii LAN adapter to the Wii, and insert a working ethernet cable into the official Nintendo Wii LAN Adapter.
2. Unplug all devices from your modem. Most modems are unable to support more than one device at a time.
3. Power cycle your modem. To do this, unplug the power from your modem and let it rest for 20 seconds. Plug the power back in. Connect the Ethernet cable from your Wii console to the Ethernet port on your modem.

4. If the connection test fails, try a Manual Setup with the Wii console, using your network's IP address, Default Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS information. 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, including the settings listed above. Input these exactly as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection.
5. If you are still unable to connect and you are using broadband Internet, then your ISP likely uses PPPoE to establish a connection to their network. The Wii is not compatible with PPPoE.

I have a wii, and it is asking mefoe a security key or password. how do i find it


If you only have that modem, and no wireless router, the Wii isn't going to hook into your internet.
If you do have a router, the password is the one you need to hook up wireless with a computer or laptop, and would have been set up by you.

Trying to hook up the internet


Your internet connection should plug into your modem, and the modem should plug into your router. Plug any computers you use directly into the router. If it's a wireless router, it's just a matter of going into the Wii and entering the settings for your wireless router.

Does this help?
