To connect the Nintendo Wii to your wireless router, the following settings must be set to the router.

*Wireless Network Name (SSID) - must be one word
*Wireless Encryption/Security - must be WEP
*Network Mode - must be Mixed

Open your router's admin page using Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.0.1 and type your router's password. By default username is admin and password leave it blank.

When you get to the router's setup page, look for wireless tab then change the Wireless Security Mode to WEP 64-bits/10 Hex digits. Type in any 10-digit hexadecimal key on Key 1, then save your settings. You should remember the 10-digit key because you'll going to use it on your Wii settings.

On your Wii settings, try to reconnect to wireless network then type in your 10-digit key. That should do it.

    Regarding the Wireless Encryption/Security: I would highly recomend using WPA instead of WEP (the Wii is compatible with these) as WEP is highly insecure.

What is error code 51030


Error Code: 51030
Unable to connect to your wireless network
Likely cause: Your wireless router may need to be power cycled, or the connection settings have changed.
How to fix: Power cycle your router; redo the connection settings on the Wii and try again.
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddenly stopped? "Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this, unplug both the modem and the router from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router. Try to connect the Wii, Nintendo DS, or Nintendo 3DS online and test for proper response.
  • Erase your old connection settings on the Wii and set up a new one, as your router's settings may have changed since you last connected. We suggest following our guide to create a new connection file and start over. If at the end you still need help, you'll find contact information to reach our specially-trained representatives.

My DSL2640r connects to nintendo wifi is inconsistent, could somebody help me?


Try switching your wifi channel to either 1 or 11, these work best for the wii as they don't interfere with other channels. Which can be a problem if there is a lot of wireless routers close to you. Here's a troubleshooting guide if that didn't work. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/onlineWirelessRouterTroubleshooting.jsp
