Hi. Here's the instruction on how to connect your wii to your wireless network

  • Step 1 Before you connect Nintendo Wii to wireless Internet, set up your Wii console according to the manufacturer's directions.
  • Step 2 Turn on the Nintendo Wii and wait for the main menu to appear.
  • Step 3 Using the Wii remote, point and click on the small Wii button in the bottom left corner.
  • Step 4 Select Wii settings.
  • Step 5 In the bottom right corner click the black square with the number 2 in it or use the right directional arrow to go to the next page. When you come to "Internet" click it.
  • Step 6 To connect Wii to the Internet select "Connection Settings."
  • Step 7 On the next screen select the first connection that says "none."
  • Step 8 On the following page, when given the option for wired connection or wireless Internet, select "wireless."
  • Step 9 Now it's time for your Wii to search for a wireless connection. To do this choose "search for an access point."
  • Step 10 Press "okay" and find the name of your wireless Internet. If it's not on the first page, arrow down until you find it. If you need a password to access the Internet, you will be asked to enter it. Click okay.
  • Step 11 Click save and okay so the Wii remembers the wireless Internet connection options for the future.
  • Step 12 Finalize the Wii Internet connection process by testing the wireless connection.
  • Step 13 When Wii's wireless Internet test finishes successfully, you're ready to play Wii online.

    Setting up wii for netflix


    Netflix Instant is available for streaming on your Wii gaming console by early spring 2010. If you have a Netflix subscription you can watch movies and episodes easily on your TV through your Wii console. This article will detail the important things you will need to make sure that you can watch Netflix from the Wii.
    Difficulty:Easy Instructions Things You'll Need

    • Netflix subscription
    • Nintendo Wii gaming console
    • Broadband internet
      • 1 Check you Netflix subscription. The minimum subscription plan to watch Netflix instantly is the unlimited 1 DVD at a time plan or otherwise the $8.99 plan. This plan allows to watch movies instantly with unlimited monthly hours.
      • 2 Check internet bandwidth on your broadband connection. According to Netflix the minimum bandwidth requirement is 1.5Mbps. Netflix recommends for watching movies instantly a 3.0Mbps connection. Check with your internet service provider to confirm that these download speeds.
      • 3 A wired connection to your Wii console. An ethernet connection to your Wii console would be preferable. Unfortunately the Wii console does not have an ethernet port but a USB port. A USB LAN Adapter can be found at most computer supply merchants or online from Wii or Amazon.com. The ethernet connection is an ethernet wire from your home LAN router connected to your USB LAN adapter. The USB LAN adapter is then connected to the USB port on the Wii console. This connection will be how Netflix provides the movie streaming feed to the Wii.
      • 4 Sign up at the Netflix website for the Streaming Disc. Netflix will send a specially programmed disc to setup the Wii for watching the movies. When the disc arrives Netflix will provide instructions on how to install onto the Wii gaming console.

    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.
