Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available). The Wii console is not able to connect to the access point. Check Nintendo?s router info for special notes, if available, for your router. Click here to go to Nintendos Wireless Router lookup page. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. 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." Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance) 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 you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types: WPA - PSK (TKIP) WPA - PSK (AES) WPA2 - PSK (AES) Check to see if your router is using MAC filtering. Log into the router using the default IP. Find the section for MAC Filtering (typically under "Security"). If MAC Filtering is on ("enabled"), enter the Wii console ?s MAC address to the list of approved MAC address. For info on locating the Wii console's MAC address, click here. (For assistance with locating the MAC Filtering section of your router?s setup tool, please consult the router?s manual or contact the manufacturer.) source Solution 2: As for the errors with connecting, I experienced error 51330 when I was trying to connect- I just clicked "Try Again" 3-4 times, and it worked. Why? I don't know. Hope I helped with the repair of your problem. An Accept from you is how I get paid. And a positive feed back tells me how I did with the repair. Arjun.

Unable to connect my Wii to the internet, it shows an error


Hope this solution helps!

Error Code 51030, 51031, 51032
    It appears that your Wii console's Internet connection may be affected by wireless interference. Try the following:
    • Change your wireless router's channel to 1 or 11
      Changing the wireless channel on your router may help. Most wireless routers have a channel range of 1 through 11. The best channels to try are usually 1 and 11, as they do not overlap with other channels. Typically, the channel settings for your router will be found in the router's main "Wireless" tab.
    • Where is your wireless router located?
      Move your router away from walls and off the floor and try to place it in a central location in your home. Also, keep it away from metal objects such as metal filing cabinets which can cause interference.
    • Look for other devices
      Noise from cordless devices (cordless phones), or wireless electronics (wireless keyboards, headphones, cell phones), especially those using the 2.4GHz frequency, can interfere with your wireless signal. Also, older microwave models can cause wireless interference. Avoid electronics that use the 2.4GHz frequency, instead look for devices that use the 5.8GHz or 900MHz frequencies.

I have inserted my Netflix Watch Instantly DVD into the WII and I have wireless internet service at home, the console asked me to enter the SSID number so I figured this was my wireless network password...


Hello,

The SSID(network name) is actually the name you give the router. When you are on a wireless device and look at available wireless routers in range, the name you see is the SSID. You can see the SSID in multiple ways,

Login to your router admin page by going to the router ip address(usually 192.168.1.1) and log in. After you log in, go to the wireless settings and confirm your SSID.

If you have a wireless device like a laptop, you can view all available wireless routers in range and you should see yours show up. Check what the name of it is(SSID) and use that and input it into your Wii.

For additional help, read my tech article on how to connect your Wii to the internet. Click here to read it.

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.

Up until about a week ago, our wii was connecting to the internet with no problems. No when we try to connect it gives us and error code or asking if we would like to set up internet connection. I have...


Your error code indicates that your Wii can't connect via wireless to your router. I would check to make sure your router is functioning properly and to restart it if required. I would then check to make sure that the configuration on your Wii matches that of your router. I would also check to see if any other devices can connect to your router, if so, then the wireless card on your Wii may have died and is something you will likely need serviced by Nintendo.

CANT CONNECT TO CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS ON THE WII KEEPS SAYING UNABLE TO CONNECT TO SERVER?


You can try to change the channel on your router to either 1 or 11. How you do this depends on your router model.
Also make sure your network settings are correct on the Wii by running a test or trying to connect to the Wii Shop channel. If these work Call of Duty should work as well.

Trying to play nintendo on line. have a new wireless router/modem it is giving an error code of 52230 and says unable to connectg to server. any ideas?


Your nintendo consule without a technical malfunction should integrate to a network. The wii fii feature allows to network by wireless recognition of another consule on the network. The situation requires finding another consule owner to network with. Both consules would communicate by wii fii signals, only require recognising another consule owner that would allow device to device connectivity. keep in mind that, the error message is a computer message indicating a break in the link that could be created once another consule is recognised.

The error message would be intergrated into a network hub once each owner of the consule enable a feature on their device to accept communcation.

The wii fii feature only is advantage to the consule owner compared to connectivity that would have been performed by connection cables earlier in the invention of video gaming.

Advice
Find colleages with similar devices, inform them about wanting gaming network connectivity to allow possible network. keep in mind that, networking is a connection involvign entities where people are a requirement..

Your situation would be possible by human networking to make possible, device to device; that would only communicate when enabled features disabled.
