Error Code: 52230 There appears to be an issue with your wireless router's firewall.


  1. 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.


  2. If this error occurs regularly, while you are playing at home, it is likely a connection problem related to your firewall settings. For more information on firewalls, click here.

  3. Are you using a Netgear brand wireless router? Our expeirence shows disabling the "SPI Firewall" of the router may help the connection. The "SPI Firewall" option is typically found under the "WAN Setup" tab of the router's settings. For information on accessing your router's settings, please click here and select the model of the Netgear router you own (if available).

Other suggestions:
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddently stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the router back in. Wait a couple of minutes for it to initialize, and try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

  • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console.
  • What to Do:
    • Check the location and distance of your wireless router.
      The further a device is from your wireless router, the weaker it's signal strength will be. If your wireless signal has to pass through any walls or floors, this will also weaken the wireless signal strength. Move the router to a central location within your home and as close to your system as possible.
      Additionally, if your router is on the floor, moving it to a higher location can improve the signal strength.

    • Change the wireless channel your router is broadcasting on.
      Wireless routers can broadcast on a variety of channels. Sometimes a specific wireless channel may experience interference from other devices and routers nearby. How to

    • Move any metal objects or electronic devices away from your Nintendo system and wireless router.
      Metal objects and electronic devices may interfere with wireless signals. If you have any of these, such as filing cabinets, speakers, power strips, glass, or cordless phones, next to your system or wireless router, move them away.

Our Wii has an error code 51032 cannot find access point. What do I do to fix it?


I assume that you are talking about connecting to wi-fi. If so, this is a problem with your router, not your Wii. A couple of problems could be...
1. If you selected the wrong Internet connection by accident (such as your neighbors) then the connection might not reach, giving you an error.
2. Make sure that you router is on and functional. If you do not have a router...well that would also give you an error.
3. If it is still not working, shut you router and modem for five minutes. This will reset your internet. After the five minutes, try connecting to your wi-fi with your Wii again.

Error code 52230 Can not connect up on wii to


This error is an issue with your router's firewall. You can find Nintendo's help on this error here:

http://www.wiierrorcodes.com/wii-error-52230-52232.php

One of the best ways to fix this would be to set up a static IP address on your Wii that is outside of the DHCP range of the router and then open up your router settings and configure a DMZ to point to that IP address. This will place your Wii completely outside of the firewall.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

When watching a movie using my wii console. everytime i log on the internet w/ my computer. I loose wi-fi connection to the wii. and get an error code 52230


Error Code 52230 means that your router or Internet Service Provider is having difficulty assigning a DNS or IP address to the Wii. What this usually means when you had a connection and it drops is that you aren't getting a clean signal connection between your router and your console. First step, unplug your modem and your router wait 30 seconds and plug them back in. If that doesn't work:

Various factors affect connecting a Wii to the internet with a WiFi connection as well, including signal strength, distance from the wireless router to the console and obstacles such as walls and ceilings that interfere with the signal. If you're using a G router and you have your Wii too far away or, has obstacles (walls and ceilings) in the way, it will not connect. You should use an N-Router if there is a significant distance between the console and the router or if there are obstacles.
In your case it could be the wireless adapter on your computer is interfering with the Wii. Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker.

Im using Wi-Fi USB connector for internet connetion, but it keep show up error code 52140, not able to connet... even my USB connetor is showing the running man mark on my computer?


Try this..

1. On the computer with the USB connector, get a command line (start -> run -> cmd) and type the command ipconfig /all
2. Normally it will show multiple DNS addresses.
3. Now connect your Nintendo USB connector.
4. Go to your network connections (usually under control panel) and right click the USB devices.
5. Under the general tab, look for Internet TCP/IP, highlight it and click properties.
6. Click Use the following DNS Addresses and enter the two addresses from step#2.
