I can't connect to netflix. Error code 52031 Rita


Error Code: 52031 Was this information helpful? Unable to connect to your wireless network
Likely cause: It appears that the security settings entered into the Wii console are not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow, or your router is not able to assign the Wii an IP address.
How to fix: Make sure the security key and security type are entered into the Wii exactly as they appear in your router's settings; manually assign an IP address to the Wii.
  1. Don't know how to find your router's security key? Let us help! Select the brand of your router below and we'll show you how to access your router's settings. Linksys Netgear DLink Belkin Apple 2Wire All other brands
      Once you have entered the correct WEP or WPA key into your system, try the connection test again. If the problem persists, keep reading this page.
    Additional information:
    • Using an Actiontec or 2Wire router? The default security key is often found on a sticker located on the router.
    • Security keys are case-sensitive.
    • WEP keys contain numbers 0 through 9, and only letters A through F.
  2. Manually assign an IP address to your Wii console.
      Assigning an IP address to your Wii is easy!
    1. Access the Wii System settings and select "Internet" from Page 2.
    2. Select "Connection Settings" and choose the connection file you currently use (will have a red border around it).
    3. Select "Change Settings," and click the right blue arrow twice to reach "Auto-Obtain IP Address."
    4. Click on "No" and select "Advanced Settings."
    5. Now, click in the "IP Address" field to enter an IP address. Look at the brand of your router, and enter the IP address listed below into the field.
      • Linksys - enter: 192.168.001.140
      • Netgear - enter: 192.168.001.250
      • Belkin - enter: 192.168.002.090
      • D-Link - enter: 192.168.000.190
      • Apple - enter: 010.000.001.250
      • 2Wire - enter: 192.168.001.250

    14. Select "Confirm," and then "Save."
    15. Click on "Save" and then "OK" to perform a connection test.
    16. If the test was successful, then your Wii is now connected online. If you received error code 52130, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.
  3. Other suggestions:
    • Did this connection used to work but has suddently stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the router back in. Wait a couple of minutes for it to initialize, and try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.
    • The Wii may have detected and set itself to the wrong security type during the initial connection set up. Try creating a new connection file and going through the connection process again (steps), but be sure that when the Wii asks for a security code, the type shown on screen (WEP or WPA) is what your router is set to. If it is different, try a "Manual Setup."
    • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console. To help minimize wireless interference, try the following:
      • Make sure other wireless devices such as cordless phones or wireless speakers are turned off, and that the Wii console is an open area without objects or electronics blocking the signal. (For instance, if the Wii is placed in a crowded entertainment center, try moving the Wii somewhere with more room.)
      • Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is found in the "Broadcast Channel:" area.
    Still stuck? We can help! We have an easy-to-follow guide that will walk you through the process of finding creating a new connection file and starting from scratch. Even if you're sure you've entered the correct security key, we suggest following our guide to create a new connection file and start over. If at the end you still need help, you'll find contact information to reach our specially-trained representatives.

I keep getting a error code 51330 what am I doing wrong


Error Code: 51330 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.

Wont connect to wi fi; I am putting in the correct ssid and correct wep, but it tells me "the attempt to obtain the ip address timed out. The wep key you entered may not be correct." But the WEP is...


This used to happen to me alot when connection was bad due to distance form the router. If your router is far away, find a way to move it closer. Reset the connection settings on the PS3 and do automatic search then just enter the WEP again

EROR CODE 52031 ON NINTENDO WII


Hi,If you’re using WEP or WPA for your router’s security, log into your router by typing its IP address in your internet browser and make sure your WEP or WPA key entered in the Wii matches the key in the wireless router. The WEP Key can only use characters 0-9 and A-F. If your router allows more than one WEP Key to be entered, make sure the key in slot #1 is the active key. The Wii can only use the key in slot 1.If you entered the correct key, then check to see if MAC filtering is enabled in the “access control, access list, or network filter” section of the wireless router. If MAC filtering is enabled, you will need to enter the Wii’s MAC address into the “allowed” list for MAC addresses.
If none of these were the problem and your connection used to work, try power cycling both the router and modem by unplugging both from the wall. Wait a couple of minutes before plugging the modem back in. Wait another couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug the router back in and wait until the router initializes.
Ensure that your wireless router has the latest firmware installed. You will need to go the router manufacturer’s website to download the firmware.
If Wii Error Code 52031 is still a problem, try changing the broadcast channel of the wireless router to 1 or 11. This can help increase download speed.
You an also try manually entering the Wii’s internet settings. You will need to first get the network configurations from your PC.
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.
Good luck

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.
