One option is try choosing a different type for your password...i've had the same problem 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 problem ever since.

I have mine connected via an airport extreme, I hope that some of this may apply to your installation......
I had to set the airport to be running on either Ch1 or 11.... NOT auto.  Plus I have to use the full HEX passcode rather than my WEP password.  You can convert your WEP pass here http://www.corecoding.com/utilities/wep2hex.php
On the Wii I also configured my Wii, subnet, router & DNS IP addresses manually.

Error code: 52230


Hi there! Welcome to FixYa!

Generally, a 52230 error is caused due to an issue with the firewall of your wireless router.

To solve this error:

  • If you are using America Online (AOL) broadboad, you may experience problems connecting the Wii console to the internet. Please contact America Online for more assistance.
  • If you are using wireless routers with Comcast firmware, you may experience problems connecting the Wii console to the internet because of incompatibilities with the Wii console.
  • 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.
I hope that your problem works out!

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.

If you don't know the WEP key, then the security is working (ironic, isn't it?)

If you want the Wii online, you will need to log into the router's interface and disable encryption entirely or (depending on the router) simply change the security key.

Bear in mind that if you change the key, all the other wireless devices will no longer work until you update them with the proper key.

Hope this helps - be sure to rate :)

I dont understand how to hook my wii up to the internet


Official Wii Wireless Internet Connection Guide
For those unsure of how to connect your Wii to the internet wirelessly using a wireless router, here is my step-by-step guide for getting online.

First you'll need a compatible wireless router that can be found by going to the following site: http://www.nintendowifi.com/

From there, select your country, which will then take you to the WiFi index page. On this page, mouse over TECH SUPPORT at the top and from the menu that drops down, click on ROUTER INFO. Near the top of the following page, under the words "I don't own a wireless router, help me find one!" there is a "click here" link, which will finally take you to Nintendo's wireless router rating page, which you can look through to either see if your router will work or if you don't have a router, which one to get. For reference, if you live in North America, here is the router rating page.

The following are pics I took of my TV when first setting up my Wii's internet connection...

From the wii home menu...
1.jpg

Go to Wii Options in the lower left.
2.jpg

Click on Wii Settings to the right.
3.jpg

From this first list, click the right arrow.
4.jpg

Now on page 2, click on Internet.
5.jpg

Then click Connection Settings.
6.jpg

From this list, click Connection 1.
7.jpg

Then, click Wireless Connection...
8.jpg

and then click Search for an Access Point.
9.jpg

It will briefly search for any access points and when this screen comes up, click OK.
10.jpg

The following will be a list of nearby access points. If the one you are looking for doesn't show up, click Try again. Then, click the one you have access to...

Wii connection issues.


You can check if the problem is with the internet connection going to the Wii or just the wireless connection.

When you loose connection, check the Wii's ip address. If it does not have an ip address(or ip is 169.xx.xx.xx) that means that the Wii is disconnecting from the wireless network. You can then try other wireless channels on your router.

If the Wii is still getting an ip of 192.168.x.x, that means that the problem is the internet from the router. You might need to forward ports on the router for your Wii.
