My wii is giving me an error message of 51030


Error Code 51030, 51031, 51032 The only wireless network within range of your Wii console is not configured or is not compatible with the Wii.
  • Make sure that the SSID (network name) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings. To verify:
    1. Login to your router's settings (click here and select your router, if available, for information).
    2. Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
    3. After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the manual settings of the Wii console that the SSID appears exactly as listed in the consumer's router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.

Check what the SSID is. This is what you should set on the WII.<br /><br />You can view my tech article on connecting and changing Wii network settings by clicking <a href="http://www.fixya.com/support/r9198848-connect_nintendo_wii_internet">here</a><br /><br />-In your home network, your router may not be assigning an IP address to your Wii console. Power cycle the equipment. Turn off all devices(modem, router and Wii). After 10 seconds turn on the modem, after 30 seconds turn on the router and after 30 seconds turn on the Wii. Try to connect online.<br /><br />If you are not using DCHP but instead have your home network setup to assign a IP address manually, you will need to setup the Wii with the IP/DNS addresses. You can set your manual settings in the Wii network settings menu. See the link above to my tech article.<br /><br />-Your router firmware may need to be upgraded.

Nintendo wii Error Code 61070 fix


Error Code 61070
  • Make sure that your Internet connection is compatible with the Wii console's online service. You must have broadband Internet (Cable, DSL, or Fiber Optic) and a compatible wireless router. For more information, click here.
  • If you have verified that you are using a compatible Internet connection, then 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

Cannot make a wireless connection


First make sure your wireless router is either b or g compatible this should be somewhere on the label usually on the bottom, it should say something like 802.11g/n this would mean it is compatible with g or n. The Wii can connect to either b or g. Also try tuning off you security settings on your router. If you can get a connection with the security off, then try turning on the security with different settings and see if it still connects.

I have a Nintendo Wi. I cannot get a wireless connection to the internet. do you have to have a particular wireless router. HELP PLEASE.


The wireless card inside the Wii is a 802.11b/g to if your router is compatible with b or g then it should work fine. If you have a newer router that is g/n compatible, you may want to check your router's settings and see if you have set your router to only being compatible with N.
If you have any security settings enabled on your router try turning them off and seeing if you have any problems connecting. If it connects then try using different security settings and retrying.

I get error code 52131 on my wireless conection


Error Code: 52131 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.

Connect a guitar hero guitar as a second guitar to rock band


This cant be done for the wii sadly because the guitars can not be switched, so you would have to use 2rock band guitars for rock band and 2Gh controllers for Gh.

Windows Vista is compatible, the question is whether your wireless router is compatible. To know that, you'll need to provide your router number. www.nintendowifi.com gives pretty good solutions and you can search by router and error code.

I'm not sure about distance but it's probably about 100 feet... it varies depending on your router and how many walls are in the way. Basically if you're one room away in any direction (including on another floor) it will probably work, but it's not guaranteed. Anyway, post your router model number and I or someone else will tell you where to go from there.
