Hi, A couple of questions for additional information: 1. The LinkSys AP/Router, what model: WRT300N or WRT54G? (Actually makes no difference what model, just that knowing will help me be more precise in pointing configuration) 2. OS, WinXP Pro SP2? Updated? 3. Was there a time when Windows was reinstalled or your HD re-formatted? 4. In your Device Manager, what wifi card do you have? 5. Are you using the Windows built-in Wireless Connection or a third party configuration/connection utility? Just to give you an idea in my old Sony Vaio PCG-F709 with a NetGear WiFi card, Windows can not detect the WiFi Network but using NetGear Smart Wizard instead of the Windows built-in Wireless Connection, I was able to connect. Kind regards.

    Hi again,
    Based on your recent post/comment and assuming "it shows the homenetwork connected there is no internet", then maybe its not your wifi settings that need to be checked but that of your browser.
    In Mozilla - Tools, Options, Advanced, Network tab, Settings button, tick Auto-detect proxy settings for this network, OK, OK.
    In IE - Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab, LAN Settings button, check Automatically detect settings, OK; Advanced tab, check Use HTTP1,1 through proxy connections, OK, OK.
    In Opera - Tools, Preferences, Advanced tab, Network, Proxy Servers button, Check automatic proxy configuration, OK, OK.
    To verify that you can really connect to the "homenetwork" >
    Start, Run, type "cmd" without the quotes;
    type ping 192.168.1.1;
    it should display then "Reply from 192.....TTL=64; this means you're connected to your friend's AP/Router; If not then you are not connected to the "homenetwork".
    type ping www.yahoo.com;
    it should display then "Reply from 209.....TTL=...; this means you're connected to your friend's AP/Router and that you can connect to the Internet; try your browser again.

    If still no connection, did you follow Sandrew's solution? Can you provide information to my previous posting @s 3, 4 & 5.

You should only need to enter the WEP key and get youre friend to remove your mac address. You may also need to refresh the ip address of your wireless card, so go to control panel>network connections>right click to properties>TCP/IP line>properties and ensure 'obtain ip address automatically' is ticked, then reastart your pc. Or you can also click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns, so as to renew your dns and ip address.

How to solve wireless/internet connection problems on Wii Consoles


You can try the following steps below as it should solve wireless/internet connection problems on your Wii console :

If you are using WEP or WPA security on your router try this:

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)

But 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.

Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.

1. go to our Wireless Router look up 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."

Lastly, 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.

Good luck.

I have an existing wireless network (Linksys WRT54GS Router). Trying to add a "Net Pal". Net Pal sees the W/L network, but will not connect. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Ron


Hi, do you have security set up on your router? WEP, WPA, WPA2, or MAC address filtering? Any of those will cause your NetPal to not be able to connect unless it has the security key, or in the case of MAC filtering, unless you add it to the allowed list.

I am trying to connect to internet the screen says erro code 51330


Hello val171156
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?

Log into the router using the default IP (if you don´t know this, consult your router's manual for assistance). Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
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:

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).
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). If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

3. 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.

The above steps usually resolve the problem. If the error message still comes up, there are other ways I can help you, but it would help if you could tell me the model number of your router, as some models have compatability problems with the Wii.

Hope this helps.

NOOK is not capable of responding to the Linksys router


The tech was correct about that matter. However you can configure the MAC to always allow the device.
  1. Find your MAC for NOOK. I think you have already did.
  2. Go to Setting and then to the Second Page to find it.
  • Configuring MAC
  • Wireless MAC Filter. To filter wireless users by MAC Address, either permitting or blocking access, click Enable.
  • If you do not wish to filter users by MAC Address, select Disable.
  • Prevent. Clicking this button will block wireless access by MAC Address.
  • Permit Only. Clicking this button will allow wireless access by MAC Address.
  • Edit MAC Address Filter List. Clicking this button will open the MAC Address Filter List. On this screen, you can list users, by MAC Address, to whom you wish to provide or block access. For easy reference, click the Wireless
  • Client MAC List button to display a list of network users by MAC Address.
  • Change these settings as described here and click the Save Settings button to apply your changes or Cancel Changes to cancel your changes.

Please rate the answer as well. Feel free to contact if you have any other problems or if this solution didn't solve the issue.

Cant get a wireless connection. error code is 51330


Set your router to Mixed Mode.
If it is set to G-Only it will not work.

Set the channel on your router to either 1 or 11

Both of these settings can be found in the wireless tab on a standard linksys router.
