Go to your router's Web Utility, if possible through a computer connected to the router by cable (because you'll loose access to the router once you change its encryption rules). If you haven't changed the access parameters, the default IP address is 192.168.1.1, with 'User Name' left blank, and 'Password' set to 'admin'. In the 'Wireless' tab. I supponse you already have encryption definitions there. Try to set your 'Security Mode' to 'WPA Personal' and 'Algorithm' to 'TKIP'. Chose any 'WPA Shared Key' you want (from 8 to 63 characteers), and set the 'Group Key Renewal' parameter to 0 (zero, i.e. no key renewal, at all). Save your settings.
You see, my router is not Linksys, but in essence, the encryption parameters are quite alike, and this is how I managed to provide internet to my son's Wii console.
Hope it works for you.

    Oh, I've forgotten. You'll have to make these security settings on all devices which connect to your router through Wi-Fi (including your Wii), of course.

How conect my internet to the wii


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...


Go to Wii Options in the lower left.


Click on Wii Settings to the right.


From this first list, click the right arrow.


Now on page 2, click on Internet.


Then click Connection Settings.


From this list, click Connection 1.


Then, click Wireless Connection...


and then click Search for an Access Point.


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


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...


When the following screen appears, click OK...


and OK again.


It will test the connection...


And if successful, the following will drop down. Click Yes to update Wii.


Sometimes the above screen is false, saying there is an update when there isn't and the following will appear...


Now, back in Wii System Settings, click on WiiConnect24.


From the following list click WiiConnect24.


Click On and then Confirm to save your settings. This feature allows for updates to be seemlessly sent to your Wii so you don't have to do the final step every time.


Ok, the final step, just as a way to make sure your Wii is up to date. Click the right arrow from the 2nd page of Wii System Settings.


Click Wii System Update...


click yes...


it will test your connection for a few seconds...


an update screen may quickly come up and tell you there is an update (whether or not your Wii actually needs one)


and the following screen will appear. Click Wii Menu to finish.

What is error code 51330


Hi there.

Unable to connect to your wireless network



Likely cause: It appears that the password (also known as a WPA or WEP key) entered into the Wii console is not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow.

How to fix: Make sure the password is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Security keys are case sensitive.

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.

If you don't know the router's brand, click this link.

Hello.... trying to connect to Wii shop channel and i'm getting error code 051030... unable to connect to server... I originally had my server provider hook up everything ... and I was able to access Wii...


If you think it's a connection problem, go check out the Connection Settings in the Wii settings menu. Run a connection test, and make sure your settings are correct. Re-enter your WEP key and such if you're using things like that.


Error Code: 051030

The only wireless network within range of your Wii console is not configured or is not compatible with the Wii.

* If you are getting this error after completing a system update, this is usually because the console resets to using the first connection slot after an update. There are two things you can do:

o If you know which connection file you were using before, you can select that connection file, then select "Use this connection" to change that to the default. You will need to do this each time they download an update.

o If you don't know which connection file you are using, or if you would prefer not to update the active connection file each time, try to clear, and then re-create your connection setting in slot one before doing the remaining troubleshooting.

* Check for interference that may be preventing a successful connection. Click here for tips.

* Check to see if the router you are using is a known to be incompatible. Click here to view our list. If your router is known to be incompatible, we recommend using a different router if possible.

* 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.

* Look up your router, if available, in our list of wireless routers, and check for any special notes that may be necesary to get the connection to work properly.

* The router may not be assigning an IP address to the Wii console, and a connection using the "Manual Settings" may be necessary. Click here for help.

* Your router may require a firmware update to work properly with the Wii console. Firmware updates can usually be found on the router manufactruer's website; consult the manufacturer for more information.

* If the problem persists, try our general troubleshooting steps.


Wireless Channel
If there are other wireless devices in the area, they can interfere with the signal so much that the Wii console will not be able to connect to the router. 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. =D

WII error 051030 unable to connect to server


Hi rloster

Error Code: 051030

The only wireless network within range of your wii console is not configured or is not compatible with the wii.

- If you are getting this error after completing a system update, this is usually because the console resets to using the first connection slot after an update. There are two things you can do:

- If you know which connection file you were using before, you can select that connection file, then select "Use this connection" to change that to the default. You will need to do this each time they download an update.

- If you don't know which connection file you are using, or if you would prefer not to update the active connection file each time, try to clear, and then re-create your connection setting in slot one before doing the remaining troubleshooting.
- Make sure that the SSID (Network Name) matches exactly to what you have entered in the wii console's settings. To verify you need to access the router settings page. Listed below are the steps to do it.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remember the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we have the information needed lets connect your Wii to the internet.

Select Wii Settings
Then Internet Connection Settings
Search for an AP or SSID
Input Security Key or Network Key Then Test the Connection

Don't Forget to say Thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

Error code 51330


Hello murz42
This error code is generated when the Wii console is unable to connect to the access point.
First of all, check that your router is compatible with the Wii www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/support/wii_support_5251_8071.html?id=8072
Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into your router using the default IP (if you don´t know this, or how to obtain it, consult your routers manual).
If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP key is a 10-character key consisting of numbers or the letters A - F. If you are using 128-bit encryption, it will consist of 26 characters. The WEP key must be hexadecimal. This means that it consists of the numbers 0-9, the letters A - F. It cannot consist of any special signs or letters. If you are using WPA, the Wii is compatible with the following types: - WPA - PSK (TKIP) - WPA - PSK (AES) - WPA2 - PSK (AES)
Next, check if your router is using MAC filtering. You still need to still be logged into your router. Find the section for MAC filtering, which is usually located under a "security" tab or something similar. If the MAC filtering is "on" or "enabled", enter the Wii´s MAC address to the list of approved MAC addresses. To find this, go to the Wii Channel menu, select "Wii settings" - "Internet" - "Console Settings". The MAC address is displayed on the first line.
Hope this helps. If you require any further help, please don´t hesitate to ask.
Good luck
