You need to go into Wii settings (use the home button on the Wiimote) and enter your wireless key. You should be able to find this key (a string of letters and numbers) on the bottom of your wireless router.

f you are attempting to connect your Wii console online using a wireless router and you receive this error :
Ensure you are using a broadband or high speed internet connection such as cable, DSL, or fiber optics. Slower connections, such as dial up, may cause issues with the Wii or may not work properly.
Ensure there is no interfering devices by shutting off microwaves, cordless phones, wireless keyboards, and wireless mice.
Diable your firewall settings, as it may be causing a connection problem.
Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds. Be sure to test both channels to see which works better or faster.
If you are using a Netgear wireless router, disable the SPI firewall setting which is usually found under the WAN Settings of your wireless router.
If you are attempting to connect your Wii console online using the Nintendo Wireless (Wi-Fi) USB Connector and you receive this error :

Temporarily disable your router's firewall which may allow the Wii console to connect online to recieve a system update. After, you may turn your firewall back on.
