Hi, if you follow my 25-step guide, you should have nexflix channel

I cannot connect my Wii to the internet. Is there a part that I need to connect, or is there something else that I need to do in order to get the wireless connection working?

Here is a step by step instruction on how to connect your Nintendo Wii to the internet. Please note that connecting the Wii to the internet does require a wireless connection, or wireless router for a signal.

copy and past this into your internet browser.. if you should receive an error for any reason, here directions and a link to solve it.

    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.

Cant connect my wii get error 51030

This might be handy: and
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.

Verify that the proper Connection File (1, 2, or 3) is selected in the Wii System Settings.

If you have multiple connection files setup, and you have recently received a system update, it is possible that the update has caused the Wii console to select a different Connection File. Click here for step-by-step instructions on viewing your connection settings.

Make sure that your network's name (SSID) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings.

Log in to your router using the default IP (consult the router's owner's manual for assistance).

Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the Internet Settings of your Wii console that the SSID is appearing exactly as listed in your router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.

Downgrade wii from 4.0 to 3.4 or lower

The Following Steps assume you have the Homebrew Channel:

STEP 1- Load Wad Manager from the Homebrew Channel (hbc) and install

STEP 2- Load Custom Wad Manager from hbc and install "cios-fix.wad"

STEP 3- Load IOS Downgrader from hbc. Follow all directions until it tells you
that it has been completed. **KEEP IN MIND that this is different from
"cIOS Downgrader"!**

STEP 4- Load cIOS Downgrader from hbc **KEEP IN MIND that this is
different from "IOS Downgrader"!**


-For example: 3.2U= USA/Canada; 3.2E= Europe; 3.2J=Japan

-OPTIONAL: You may choose another system firmware other than 3.2
if you want. My intention is to help guide you to downgrade to 3.2.
Remember that System Menu 3.2 is considered the 'ideal' firmware
for homebrew (if not all) to work properly.

STEP 5- (You may skip this if you wish) At this point you should be on System
Menu 3.2 (or other firmware). You may check your Wii settings to see
for yourself.

~~Again if your NOT in System Menu 3.2 you will not be able to do Step 6~~

STEP 6- Load Starfall from hbc. After reading the discalimer you will be
instructed to press B+1 instead of B+2. Press B+1 to continue on to
the next screen.
-As of version 0.5 Starfall has 8 options/patches to the Wii in which
you can install. The last 3 are the most important ones. Some people
just install everything which is fine.

-STARFALL comes with these options (the ones in red are the important ones):

~Replace healthwarning with back menu
~Region free GC games with video mode patch
~Region free Wii Games
~Region free channels
~No Mainmenu BGM (Background Music)
~Start rescue-menu when Y is held on 1st GC controller (Usefull for
recovering bricks)
~Remove rescue-menu diagnostic disc check
~Skip disc update check


Congratulations you have successfully downgraded your Wii along with
a rescue menu if have accidently bricked your Wii.
