One option is try choosing a different type for your password...i've had the same error before and what i did was to change the password type e.g. from wpa aes-tkip to wpa-aes passphrase (this option will appear during your wii internet connection set-up as you would probably know by now) and everything right after started to fall in place perfectly, just try what password type will work for you...my wii started connecting to my router and never had the same error code ever since.

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.

Hello,

Nintendo Wii is a highly delicate gaming console and gets errors very quickly. I would suggest you to try Nintendo Wii Complete Repair Guide. It is very useful for users like us who want to play save games and also save their time and money. I have used this Wii Fix Manual for several other errors and faults and it is really good since it covers all major problems and their solutions. I hope it would help you as well. Take care and have a nice day :)

I just signed up for netflix and am trying to hook it up to my wii to watch movies. The wii is properly connected and hooked up, and we have a wireless internet connection in my home, however when i go to...


Error code 51030 means you Wii is unable to connect to your wireless network.
Try unplugging your modem and wireless router, then plugging them back in after a couple minutes.
While you're waiting for your modem and router, delete your network setting from your Wii, and set them back up once your router and modem are back up.
Your wireless router's setting might have changed and your Wii might not be able to properly connect.

please make sure that you wireless network signal is in range of the wii
setup your wii with wifi by going to the wii button on the home screen
wii settings> then page 2 select the internet.
go to wireless connection and connection 1 to setup your wifi.
search for access points and input the wireless security password to connect to the wireless network.
if this worked and you still get the error code please power cycle the wii and also check your wireless connection settings and any interference from other wireless networks. you may need to change the channel for the wireless network to 1 or 11.

Internet isn't working right. Say error code 51030


Error Code 51030, 51031, 51032
    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.

The error code 51030 means that you have and internet connection error. Possibly caused by being too far from the wireless source, or your wireless settings on your Wii need to be adjusted. Here is a link to Nintendo's Customer Support to show you the steps to set up, or reset your wireless connection.

Cant connect my wii get error 51030


This might be handy: http://www.nhotspot.net/wii-error-code-51030/ and http://www.wiierror.com/wii-error-51000.php
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.

Wii wireless


Have you seen this page and the process? Could you try this and let me know where you have problems. I believe you should start with the Setting Up Your Internet section.
