How do i connect to internet website through wii

Set up a wi-fi connection, then open the opera browser and type in a website by clicking the tab marked WWW on the bottom. Usb keyboards work on the Wii and make browsing much faster. Just use the remote like a mouse.

Bought a pre owned wii and im trying to hook it to the internet but it says error 52020

What to do will depend on how you are connecting your Wii console. Please use the info below that describes how you are connecting.

Connecting directly to a modem:
1. Power off the Wii. Connect the official Nintendo Wii LAN adapter to the Wii, and insert a working ethernet cable into the official Nintendo Wii LAN Adapter.
2. Unplug all devices from your modem. Most modems are unable to support more than one device at a time.
3. Power cycle your modem. To do this, unplug the power from your modem and let it rest for 20 seconds. Plug the power back in. Connect the Ethernet cable from your Wii console to the Ethernet port on your modem.

4. If the connection test fails, try a Manual Setup with the Wii console, using your network's IP address, Default Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS information. To access these settings:
1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings, including the settings listed above. Input these exactly as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection.
5. If you are still unable to connect and you are using broadband Internet, then your ISP likely uses PPPoE to establish a connection to their network. The Wii is not compatible with PPPoE.

Im try to connect my wii online but i get error code 51330 saying unable to connect to internet. im on wierless and have con though connection and his comes up after testing my connection.....what should i...

Error Code: 52130 There appears to be an issue with your wireless router's firewall.

  1. Make sure your router is not listed on our "known incompatible routers" page, by clicking here.

  2. Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.
    4. Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

  3. Disabling your router's wireless security may help the Wii console's online connection. Consult your wireless router's manual or check with the router manufacturer for more details. Please note Nintendo provides these recom mendations as a resource to our consumers; it is up to each consumer to determine if adjusting their router's security settings are the right choice for their home network.

  4. It is possible that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is not compatible with the Wii console. For instance, if you need to login with a user name and password when you try to go online for the first time after restrarting your PC, your ISP is likely not compatible. Please contact your service provider for more information.

yes,that's very can connect directly the wii to your lan if your wlan is having some kind of a glitch that will not allow you to connect to the,once connected via lan,you can browse on opera per the message you've been getting and see if you can follow their instructions to solve the matter.later on if you still can't connect,you might want to set-up again you wii connect settings.make sure your router is working properly and is set to detect/accept your wii.also,your wep or wpa password should exactly be the one you need to key in on your wii internet setting.if it's wpa,try to select guarantees.hope this helps.

Not being able to get the internet


the Wii does not ship by default with a web browser, but you can go into the wii store and under virtual console you can buy opera for 500 wii points (probably <US$10) then you can surf the net to your hearts content.

Can't get into wii settings

Hi there, I have uploaded a file on the following link copy the file which fits your Wii (Japanese or US or Europe) and use Winrar to open the ISO file. Then burn the iso file onto a DVD with low speed like 2x. Then, insert the DVD into your Wii and play the game like normal, it will ask for software update and click yes. Then take out the DVD and check your Menu setting, it comes back.
