Sometimes it has to do with ISP firewall. it might be seeing the request from your game console as a threat and it will deny it access to the internet. sometimes, it has to do with low connectivity. another thing you might look at should be your game software. if you have a friend with the same type of Nintendo Game, try to connect to the same internet access as yours, and see if you experience the same problem. that way you can figure out were the problem is coming from. if you are the owner of the WIFI, disable the wep for sometime, and see if it runs smoothly because in some cases, if the internet access returns, it will want to authenticate it self, and if it fails, it will turn up an error. Cheers!

The error code is basically telling you that no connection could be made to your wireless router. It could be for all sorts of reasons such as being out of range, or having the wrong WEP key (or other protocols) security settings. Don't forget to enter your encryption key in the connection settings on the Wii (the screen that lets your enter SSID, click the right arrow a few times to get the right options up)

If you can connect to your router with other devices you can probably forget about updating firmware or reseting the router. The configuration you need to perform will be on the Wii console itself.

    Yes it might be as some internet provider has lots of ports blocked for several reasons. Also certain DMZ ports are blocked .



    Please have these verfied and then try the troubleshooting steps. Also do check the wiring.



    Thanks

Here is my step-by-step guide for getting online.

First you'll need a compatible wireless router that can be found by going to the following site: http://www.nintendowifi.com/

From there, select your country, which will then take you to the WiFi index page. On this page, mouse over TECH SUPPORT at the top and from the menu that drops down, click on ROUTER INFO.Near the top of the following page, under the words "I don't own awireless router, help me find one!" there is a "click here" link, whichwill finally take you to Nintendo's wireless router rating page, whichyou can look through to either see if your router will work or if youdon't have a router, which one to get. For reference, if you live inNorth America, here is the router rating page.

The following are pics I took of my TV when first setting up my Wii's internet connection...

From the wii home menu...

Trying to set up my wii to internet. have correct address, betting error code 51331


According to Nintendo's website you will receive that error if you have not entered in your wireless passcode correctly. See below error explanation from Nintendo:
Error Code: 51331
Unable to connect to your wireless network
Likely cause: It appears that the password (also known as a WPA or WEP key) entered into the Wii console is not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow.
How to fix: Make sure the password is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Security keys are case sensitive.
Don't know how to find your router's password?
Look for a sticker on the bottom of your router. Many routers provided by Internet service providers have their default password located on a sticker on the bottom of the router.

If you're not able to locate the password here, select the brand of your router below and we'll show you how to access your router's settings.
