Not only will I tell you what it means, Kyle(can I call you Kyle? Good), but I will offer a solution to this problem AND give you something that will help you out with any future Wii errors. Brace for HELPFUL.
Error code 51030 means that you're unable to connect to your wireless network. Woah woah woah! Easy there Kyle, don't throw out your Wii just yet; wii can fix it! (I do puns too)
Check out your router. Is it on? It should be. Now turn it off. Is it plugged in? Unplug it. Now do a little dance. Finished? Great. Plug it back in.turn it back on. Fire up the Wii and give it another go.
Still no good? That's no good! Let's try messing with some settings on the Wii. I know I know, settings are scary. Everything should just be automatic these days. Well don't worry, I'm going to walk you through it.
Turn the Wii on and at the main screen (the one with the channels) point to the bottom left. With your wiimote, I mean. C'mon Kyle, that'd be awkward if you were just pointing at your screen. Anyways, click it, then navigate to Wii Settings > Internet (it's on page 2). Click on a new connection, or delete an old one and then click on it. Go through and re-set-up your connection.
Everything should be awesome now. But if you recall, I said I'd help out with FUTURE Wii error codes as well. Am I magic, you ask? Yes, but that's irrelephant (not pertaining to elephants) and irrelevant.
So now, Kyle, I bequeath upon you this link
. Use it wisely.
Notice on the left side there's a little box labelled "Error Code Lookup"? I think you can figure out what goes there.
It's.... it's the error codes, just so ya know.
