Error Code: 51330 This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:

  1. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
    1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
    2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
    3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
    6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
    7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
      • WPA - PSK (TKIP)
      • WPA - PSK (AES)
      • WPA2 - PSK (AES)

  2. If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:
    1. From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
    2. If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings).
    3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.


  3. Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
    1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page.
    2. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
    3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
    4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."


  4. 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.


  5. 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.

I keep getting error code: 51330 when trying to connect wirelessly to the internet.

Don't know how to find your router's password?

Look for a sticker on the bottom of your router. Many routers provided by Internet service providers have their default password located on a sticker on the bottom of the router.

I tri to connect internet error code 51330


Error code 51330 is trying to tell you that the Wii Wireless Adapter cannot connect to your wireless router. The most likely reason for this error is that the password you entered is not typed correctly, or that you forgot to type one in at all. Remember that security keys are always case sensitive.

We have a error code 51330 ,while trying to connect to netflix


The 51330 error code is in reference to a wireless router security issue.
Solution: Reset* the router that your Wii is connected to back to it's default settings.
The router's default settings will put an end to the 51330 router security error.

*some routers have a 'RESET' button located on the outer casing, other routers can be reset using the software that came with your router

We cant connect our wii to the internet.. Error code 51330 keeps coming on please help


It appears that the security settings entered into the Wii console are not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow.
Make sure the security key and security type are entered into the Wii exactly as they appear in your router's settings.

Once you have entered the correct WEP or WPA key into your system, try the connection test again. If the problem persists, keep reading this page.
  • Security keys are case-sensitive.
  • WEP keys contain numbers 0 through 9, and only letters A through F.
