Re: When i try to hook up the wii to wireless connection...
Error Code: 51330
This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. 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
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.

To access the internet with your wii console you'll need either a wireless router/gateway, or a wii wired LAN connector.
1. Power on your Wii console 2. Access the "Wii Setting" menu by selecting the circular wii icon in the bottom left of the screen and then choosing wii settings. 3. Use the arrow on the right of the screen to move to page two, then select "internet". 4. Select "Connection 1 ' None" 5. Choose "Wireless Connection" (assuming you have a wireless router), then select "Search for Access Point". 6. Wait for your wii to scan, then select your wireless network, and if prompted enter your wireless network password/key. Then click "OK".
You should now be able to connect to the internet. If your Wii runs a connection test and it proves unsuccessful it will display an error code. If you get Error Code 51330 or 52130 this means the password you entered does not match the password on the wireless network you are attempting to join. A list of all other error codes and what they mean can be found here: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/onlineErrorCodes.jsp
It appears that the wireless security pass code for your home network may have been changed or is entered incorrectly on the Wii console. Click here for more information about WEP and WPA security, including how to access the settings for your Access Point.
If your wireless network password isn't wrong, reply. Hope this helps somewhat.
Error code 51330 is trying to tell you that the Wii Wireless Adapter cannot connect to your wireless router. The most likely reason for this error is that the password you entered is not typed correctly, or that you forgot to type one in at all. Remember that security keys are always case sensitive.
Power on your Wii console and press the A Button on the Wii Remote

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."
