Try to trouble shoot. If what i have provided below doesnt solve the problem let me know and i will assist you from there. 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

    How to connect your Nintendo Wii to the internet


    Hello,

    In this tips and tricks guide I will go over the steps you will need to take if you wish to connect your Nintendo Wii to the internet. If you want to connect wireless you will need to be within range of a wireless access point. If you wish to connect via a wired connection(Ethernet to modem or Ethernet to router) you will need a Wii LAN adapter which is sold separately.

    -Power on the console and press the A button to reach the Wii menu. At the menu, use your remote to select the Wii button at the bottom left.

    -Now select "Wii settings"
    -Now, hit the arrow on the right side of the screen to go to the next page and select "Internet"

    g33k4u.png

    -Select "Connection 1: none"
    -Select "Wireless Connection" then select "Search for An Access Point"
    -Select "OK" then the Wii will display all the wireless access points(wireless routers) that are in range.
    -Select the wireless access point you wish to use.
    -If the access point requires a security key, you will need to enter this key in. This key is set when you first configure your wireless router.
    -Select "OK", then "Save Settings", and then "Yes".
    At this point your Wii will now test the internet connection.

    If you are using a Wired connection then you can connect the Wii directly to the router or modem and not use WiFi. Wii LAN Adapters are sold separately. If you have the LAN Adapter, follow the steps above up to the point were you select a connection type. You will select "Wired" instead of "Wireless. The Wii will now test your internet connection.

    I hope this guide has helped you connect your Wii to the internet. Enjoy!

    How do I get my wii system to work with the wireless router. my error code is 51030 which state that unable to fine an access point. The wireless router is by netgear.


    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're not able to locate the password here, select the brand of your router below and we'll show you how to access your router's settings.

    Cannot get my wii to connect to my charter wireless


    To connect a Nintendo Wii to the Internet using a wireless connection, please follow the steps below:
    1. On the Wii console's main menu, click on the Wii button in the lower left corner.
    2. This will take you to the settings screen. Click 'Wii Settings'.
    3. In the 'Wii System Settings', click on the blue arrow on the right to reach the second screen of options. On this screen, click the Internet button.
    4. Select 'Connection Settings'.
    5. Select an open connection, indicated by None.
    6. Select 'Wireless Connection'.
    7. Select 'Search for an Access Point'.
    8. At this point, the Wii console will search for any identifiable Access Points nearby. Once this search is completed, you will be directed to choose the Access Point that you wish to connect to, as shown. Click OK to display the list of available Access Points.
    9. Select your Access Point from the list of available Access Points. If your Access Point is not displayed, contact your wireless router manufacturer for support.
    10. Click Save followed by OK to save your connection settings.
    If your connection appears as a closed padlock, then the Access Point requires a security code or pass phrase. The security code or pass phrase can usually be found on the security tab of your wireless router settings. If you do not know the security code or pass phrase and do not know how to login to your router to get it, contact your wireless router manufacturer for support.
    If your connection signal appears yellow or red, the stability or strength of the connection is not optimal, contact your wireless router manufacturer for support.


    If you still have problems, call them at: 1-888-438-2427.

    Cannot connect the wii to wireless internet


    Goto 'wii options' (bottom left of screen). Wii settings-> then page over to 'Internet' then 'connection settings' then 'conection 1'. Clear any setings. Then go back to connection 1 and click 'wireless connection' then 'search for access point'. If your wireless router is set up right in your home then you should see it as an option when you click 'OK'. Choose your connection, then enter your router password. If your wii can't find an access point then either your router isn't set up correctly or your wii's wireless is defective.

    Wireless connection will not work


    The computer is viewing the signal, but its not connected yet. For that you have to enter a "key" in hexadecimal format. In other words you have to configure the security of the wireless connection on the router, then you have to enter the "key"that the router gives you. To enter the administrative configuration of the router, connect with the cable the computer and in the internet browser, enter 192.168.0.1 or search for gateway IP address of the computer. There you configure Wireless Settings. Always use encryption for security reasons. WEP encryption will be good.

    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.

    Try resetting your IP address:
    The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

    1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
    2) Click Run
    3) Type in CMD
    This will take you to a black command box
    4) Type in: ipconfig/release
    The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
    Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
    5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
    You should now see a new IP address listed.

    Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
    Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
