Here is a step by step guide. First you'll need a compatible wireless router that can be found by going to the following site:
http://www.nintendowifi.com/
From there, select your country, which will then take you to the WiFi index page. On this page,
mouse over TECH SUPPORT at the top and from the menu that drops down, click on ROUTER INFO. Near
the top of the following page, under the words "I don't own a wireless router, help me find one!"
there is a "click here" link, which will finally take you to Nintendo's wireless router rating
page, which you can look through to either see if your router will work or if you don't have a
router, which one to get. For reference, if you live in North America, here is the router rating
page.
The following are pics I took of my TV when first setting up my Wii's internet connection...
From the wii home menu...

Go to Wii Options in the lower left.

Click on Wii Settings to the right.

From this first list, click the right arrow.

Now on page 2, click on Internet.

Then click Connection Settings.

From this list, click Connection 1.

Then, click Wireless Connection...

and then click Search for an Access Point.

It will briefly search for any access points and when this screen comes up, click OK.

The following will be a list of nearby access points. If the one you are looking for doesn't show
up, click Try again. Then, click the one you have access to...

When the following screen appears, click OK...

and OK again.

It will test the connection...

And if successful, the following will drop down. Click Yes to update Wii.

Sometimes the above screen is false, saying there is an update when there isn't and the following
will appear...

Now, back in Wii System Settings, click on WiiConnect24.

From the following list click WiiConnect24.

Click On and then Confirm to save your settings. This feature allows for updates to be seemlessly
sent to your Wii so you don't have to do the final step every time.

Ok, the final step, just as a way to make sure your Wii is up to date. Click the right arrow from
the 2nd page of Wii System Settings.

Click Wii System Update...

click yes...

it will test your connection for a few seconds...

an update screen may quickly come up and tell you there is an update (whether or not your Wii
actually needs one)

and the following screen will appear. Click Wii Menu to finish.
if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek
1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives. 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive. 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'. 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place. 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek

I do not know what my ssid number is to connect my wii console to the internet to use netflicks


The ssid number is the name you gave your wireless router when you were setting it up. If you do not have a wireless router, then you will need one to connect it wirelessly to the internet. Check your router's manual and it will tell you how login to the router and get the ssid from the wireless settings

I am trying to connect to internet with my wii, to use Netflicks, i get a 51420 error code, can you help please


Hi, that error code only occurs when using the wired LAN adapter, so I'll assume you aren't using wireless.
Here are some instructions that I found to set the wired adapter up, hopefully they'll help: ttp://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/getOnline/lansetupwii.jsp
