Here you go Please try the following troubleshooting: Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance) Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters). If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types: WPA - PSK (TKIP) WPA - PSK (AES) WPA2 - PSK (AES)
If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering: 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). 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). If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. 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."

Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings: On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run." Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window. 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.

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. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek

Tried to set netflix on my wii and an error code came up 50299


Hey, here are your options:

  • Power cycle your home network and perform a connection test on the Wii.
    If your Wii was previously connected online, and no changes have been made to your home network, perform the following steps (if you have not previously connected your system online, skip to the next bullet point):
    1. Remove the power from your wireless modem and router. Plug the power back into both devices, starting with the modem.
    2. From the Wii Menu, select "Wii" in the lower-left corner, and then select "Wii Settings." Use the arrow on the right to move to the second page, then select "Internet," followed by "Connection Settings." Last, select your connection file, and the select "Connection test."


  • Create a new connection file.
  • Set up a new connection file making sure the Wii is attempting to connect to the appropriate wireless network and is receiving a strong wireless signal. How to Wirelessly Connect the Wii to the Internet Nintendo Support

How do you get the internet


select internet from the Wii settings screen, then go to the internet setup screen.
first, you should make sure you have a high-speed (broadband) Internet connection like cable or dsl. then, you should see if your network is wired or wireless.

if:
-your network is wired, then you have a LAN, and you can connect your Wii with the network with a Wii LAN Adapter which can be sold at www.nintendo.com

-your network is wireless, then you can use the Internet Setup in the settings to search for your access point. all you have to do is select the connection settings option, select an open connection indicated by "None", select wireless connection, select search for an access point, see if you can select your access point from a list (if it shows up), select OK, and select OK to test the connection

-your network is not wireless, then do you have a PC running Windows XP directly connected to your high-speed Internet connection? if so, then you can connect your Wii if you get the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector and use Internet Setup to connect with it.

we actually have the wireless router to connect to ours and it works perfectly. you can also check the Wii Operations Manual (gray book) for even more details. its on pages 51-59. you should start on page 51 though.
i hope this helped a lot!

Two brand new games will not work on the Wii (the


We had the same issue this morning. you have to upgrade the Wii system menu. Look in the front page of the Super Mario Bros instruction bulletin and it tells you to do this. You have to be connected to the internet through your Wii though to do this, but our is now working. The download takes a few minutes but all is good. Hope this helps.

Just select the System Update option in Wii System Settings - just make sure your Wii is connected to the internet.

Router not seeing internet connection


If you are on cable internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Access the router's setup page using your main PC, under SETUP tab, there's a sub-tab called MAC Address Clone. Enable that and click on "Clone My PC's MAC" then click on Save Settings. Power cycle the router and the modem. You should be online after that.

Error 51330 on nintendo wii siemens gigaset se587 wlan used.


hi

i have just solved this problem on the SE 587, hope it works for you.

1) in internet explorer type 192.168.1.1, which should bring up your router settings - then select "wireless" and then "basic wireless settings" - under "auto channel" set it to "disable" and the set "wireless channel" to "1" , then "save settings" - my pc briefly went offline and quickly came back.

2) when setting up the connection on the wii you need the code from the bottom of the router - make sure you have "caps lock" ON on the wii when you set up.

3) now everything works perfectly on the wii - you dont even need the pc on! just the router.

good luck, IAN.
