Error Code: 51330 This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:

  1. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
    1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
    2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
    3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
    6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
    7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
      • WPA - PSK (TKIP)
      • WPA - PSK (AES)
      • WPA2 - PSK (AES)

  2. If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:
    1. 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).
    2. 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).
    3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.


  3. Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
    1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page.
    2. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
    3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
    4. 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."


  4. Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. 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.


  5. 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.

From 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 Settings."
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."
Select "OK" and the Wii will display all the wireless networks it finds.
Select the wireless network that is yours.
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."
  1. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."
    • The Wii console will run a connection test with your wireless network.
  • 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.
  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
    • Error Code 51330: 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.

How do i set up a wifi conection from my wii to my modem please


Nintendo's wireless connection will only support WEP security. So before connecting it wirelessly, check your wireless router/wireless access point and make sure that IF it has a wireless security configured on it, it's on WEP. So the wireless security should either be Disabled or at WEP. You can check these options on the router's Web UI. If you have a Linksys router, I could help you with it.


follow these steps:

1. Setup Screen > tap "Nintendo Wi-Fi Settings".
2. Select a "Connection slot".
3. Tap "Search for an Access Point. (This will open a list of wireless networks detected.)
4. Select your network (or any network you want to connect to) and connect to it. It will ask your for the network key or WEP key if you have it setup on the router.

How do you set up Internet on the wii?


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.

I am trying to connect Netflix to my Wii and I keep getting error code 51330 and 51331. I don't know what these errors are. I am trying to set up with wireless internet.


From Nintendo:
Error Code 51330, 51331, and 51332
    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.

I'm tryin to get into my Netflix but error code 51330 keeps poping up and denying me access how do i go about tryin to fix this


This code means a network connection cannot be established. Check you connection settings to make sure you are connected to the internet. If you are connected your router may be having some problems establishing a connection with your wii. You may have to reset your router to factory settings you will need to read your routers manual how to do so. Every router has a different way to reset it to factory settings it can be as simple as pressing a button behind the router or having to go into the software settings and doing it from there. If you reset it try to connect your wii to your router again by doing this: Step 1: Turn on Wii Step 2: Select the Wii button on the left side of main menu.
Step 3: Select "Wii Settings"
Step 4: Scroll until you see "Internet" and select it.
Step 5: Select "Connection Settings"
Step 6: Search for an open connection by "Connection 3:None button"
Step 7: Select "Wireless Connection" and search for access point.
Step 8: Choose the access point desired from the list and save the settings.
Step 9: Test your connection. If successful you are connected to the internet if not go back and check your connection settings.
Let me know if you still have problems. Good Luck!
