Connection Comcast router to wii

Ok, i have a comcast router. I just brought the official nintendo wii lan adapter. I connected the ethernal cord to the lan adapter from my comcast router, but the wii wont connect.

I keep getting the error ''52021'' I looked up the error code on the nintendo website, the wii manual, searched forums, etc. None of them seemed to help fix my problem.

Note: I've heard comcast routers don't work well with connecting to the wii, but there are people who still got it to connect.

Can some1 please tell me what to do? If i need to restart my router, how do i do that?

Error Code: 52021 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 (how to), 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. Contact your ISP for more assistance.

    Connecting to a router:
  1. Ensure that an Ethernet Cable is running from the WAN or Internet Port on the router to the modem. Power cycle the modem by unplugging it from the electrical outlet, waiting a moment, and then plugging it back in.
  2. Power off the Wii console, and insert the Wii LAN Adapter into one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii console.
  3. Run an ethernet cable from the Wii to a numbered port on the router.
  4. Power on the Wii console, and run a connection test through the Wii console's online settings.
  5. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's settings on your PC:
    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 as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection, except for the IP address. The IP address needs to be different. Add 10 to the IP address and use that number in the Wii console's settings.

Error code 51420 on my wii console. I am trying to establish a connection to the internet. I have a router which is working properly because i can get on the internet now. I have ran my ethernet cable...


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. 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.
  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.

Connecting internet


The Wii has built in WiFi so if you have a wireless modem all you will need to do is go to the Wii settings menu and select Internet, Next choose Connection Settings then select Connection 1. Here you will have the option to choose a Wireless conection -OR- Wired connection. If you have a wireless modem or Router click Wireless connection and choose Search for an access point then
select your access point from the list. Save then start a connection test.

If you do not have a wireless modem or router you must buy the LAN Adapter which you will find here http://www.amazon.com/Wii-LAN-Adapter-Nintendo/dp/B0014KM2KG. You will need that to connect a ethernet cord from your modem to the Wii. You would choose Wired connection and click ok to start the test. Good luck and have fun (",)

How to set up nintendo wii internet


  • 1 In order to set up your Nintendo Wii internet connection, you need to have high speed internet service, such as DSL, cable, or fiber optic.

    If you want to use a wired connection for your Wii, you will need to purchase the Nintendo Wii Lan Adapter and a long ethernet cable to reach your router or modem. The Wii Lan adapter is available from many sources for about $30 and the cable will cost you around $10 or more. If you want to plug in your computer and Wii at the same time, you will need a router. You do not need a router if you are planning on unplugging your computer when you use Wii over the internet. Honestly, wireless routers cost about $35 and don't require a cable, so I purchased a wireless router instead. Plus, I don't want an ugly cable running across the room.

    If you still want to use the Wii Lan adapter to connect to the internet, here are the steps to connect your Wii Lan adapter to your Wii game system:

    Make sure your Wii game system is turned off.

    Attach the Wii Lan adapter to the USB port on the back of your console.

    Connect the other end to an ethernet cable that goes to your router or modem.

    Turn your console back on.

  • 2

    If you are using the Nintendo Wii Lan Adapter to connect to the internet, follow this step. If you are connecting to the internet via a wireless router, skip this step and go to step 3.

    To connect your Wii via a wired connection:

    Go to the Wii Menu.

    Click on the round Wii button on the lower left corner.

    Click Wii Settings.

    Click the right arrow to go to page 2.

    Click on the Internet button.

    Click Connection Settings.

    Click Connection 3.

    Click Wired Connection.

    Your Wii will do a connection test and hopefully everything will be all set. You are now finished.

  • 3

    To connect your Wii via a wireless connection:

    Go to the Wii Menu.

    Click on the round Wii button on the lower left corner.

    Click Wii Settings.

    Click the right arrow to go to page 2.

    Click on the Internet button.

    Click Connection Settings.

    Click Connection 3.

    Click Wireless Connection.

    Select Search for Access Point. Click OK.

    Select the access point you want to use. Click Save and OK.

    You may be prompted to enter your password.

    Your Wii should now be all connected.

    We have comcast internet and we were woundering if we can hook up the wii to the comcast internet modem through a usb cable if so we hooked it up and we dont know how to get the internet on the wii.


    No you can not directly connect using the usb connection.

    You need to connect either wireless through a router or you need a wii LAN adapter to connect with the Ethernet cord.

    Good Luck....
