You will have to reset your wireless router and have it set up again. Hold down the reset button to hard reset all the settings on it. Once this is done it will default back to NO SECURITY needed to log on. You can then first test the Wii for connection with the router. Then set up security again on the router and update the information on the Wii to finish it up.

P.S. if you don't know how to set up the router I recommend calling them directly is a lot faster and they can walk you through the process 5-15minutes tops on the phone.

Netflix streaming worked until I connected my tablet to my wireless router and put in a pass word. Now wii will not connect to internet. Error code 51331


hello... this problem is quite simple to fix... follow this step by step:

Power on your Wii console and press the A Button on the Wii Remote to reach the Wii main menu. Use the Wii Remote to select the "Wii" button.



Now, select "Wii Settings" to access the "Wii System Settings" menu.



Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, scroll to page two and select "Internet."



Select "Connection 1: None"



(Don't see "None" in Connection 1? Click the Connection 1 button, then choose "Clear Settings.")


Click on "Wireless Connection" and then "Search for an Access Point."



(Are you using a wired Internet connection to your Wii console? If so, click here for specific help.)


Select "OK" and the Wii will display all the wireless networks it finds.



Select the wireless network that is yours.

(If you're not sure which is yours, or you don't see any wireless networks, click here.)

Asked to enter a security key?

If you are prompted to "Enter the Password or Key," then the wireless network you are trying to connect to has wireless security turned on. You will need to type in your security key or password and select "OK."

Don't know your router's security key?

Let us help you find your router's security key. Select the brand of your router below and we'll provide you with the default information for that brand!

Linksys Netgear DLink

Belkin Apple 2Wire

All other brands

Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."

The Wii console will run a connection test with your wireless network when the test is completed. You should see the following screen:



As long as you see "The connection test was successful," the "Wii Support Code" does not matter and can be ignored


The connection test was successful - Then you're almost done! After your connection test, the Wii console will check if there is a new Wii System Update available. Once you select "Yes" and "I Accept," the Wii will begin to download any available updates. Click here to find out what's next!


The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.


Error Code 51330 or 52130: This means the security code you entered into the Wii is not the same one your router is set to. Look in your router's settings and try again. Please refer to step seven (7) above for more information.

All other error codes: Try our error code troubleshooting where we have detailed information on many common error codes. (You can ignore any "Wii Support Code" you receive on a connection test.)

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.

Nintendo wii will not connect to my new d-link dsl2640r router


To connect the Nintendo Wii to your wireless router, the following settings must be set to the router.

*Wireless Network Name (SSID) - must be one word
*Wireless Encryption/Security - must be WEP
*Network Mode - must be Mixed

Open your router's admin page using Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.0.1 and type your router's password. By default username is admin and password leave it blank.

When you get to the router's setup page, look for wireless tab then change the Wireless Security Mode to WEP 64-bits/10 Hex digits. Type in any 10-digit hexadecimal key on Key 1, then save your settings. You should remember the 10-digit key because you'll going to use it on your Wii settings.

On your Wii settings, try to reconnect to wireless network then type in your 10-digit key. That should do it.
