Error Code: 51030 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.


  • 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.

How do I get Netflix on my TV. I already have an account with Netflix.?


Assuming you are trying to connect to netflix using the WII. That error code means the WII is not compatible with your wireless network. You should test your wifi connection to make sure it is working.

Wii error message 51030


How to fix: Power cycle your router; redo the connection settings on the Wii and try again.
Did this connection used to work but has suddenly stopped? "Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this, unplug both the modem and the router from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router. Try to connect the Wii, Nintendo DS, or Nintendo 3DS online and test for proper response.
Erase your old connection settings on the Wii and set up a new one, as your router's settings may have changed since you last connected. We suggest following our guide to create a new connection file and start over.

I have perfect internet access but my wii wont let me play my netflix movies. it says unable to find an access point my signal strengh is perfect.error code 51030 i would really like to speak to someone...


Hi There,
Playing a movie over a wifi network not only stresses your router, it's choppy and useless if you've got anything less than a wireless N 300mb/s connection.
However, I looked up your error code and Nintendo seems to think that your router needs to be power cycled, and if that doesn't work, delete your connection settings from your wii and create a new one.
If that doesn't help, I'd recommend upgrading to a linksys N router or using a good old fashioned 10/100mbit cable :)

I just signed up for netflix and am trying to hook it up to my wii to watch movies. The wii is properly connected and hooked up, and we have a wireless internet connection in my home, however when i go to...


Error code 51030 means you Wii is unable to connect to your wireless network.
Try unplugging your modem and wireless router, then plugging them back in after a couple minutes.
While you're waiting for your modem and router, delete your network setting from your Wii, and set them back up once your router and modem are back up.
Your wireless router's setting might have changed and your Wii might not be able to properly connect.

The error code 51030 means that you have and internet connection error. Possibly caused by being too far from the wireless source, or your wireless settings on your Wii need to be adjusted. Here is a link to Nintendo's Customer Support to show you the steps to set up, or reset your wireless connection.
