The moderm could be bad or you do not have the correct driver for this moderm. removed the moderm, and uninstall the software driver and do it over. if it does not work try replacing the moderm with another kind.This might work.make sure you go to start,control panel, hardware device and look for your moderm and there should not be an exclimation mark in front of your modem, if it is, right click your mouse while high lighting your modem,and uninstalled it. Restart you pc and do the process over. Good luck

Error code 52130, trying to hook up to the wireless internet. Any Suggestions?


Error Code: 52130 The Wii is unable to connect to the Internet
Likely cause: The wireless router is incorrectly connected, or the Wii console will need a DNS manually entered.
How to fix: Check the way your router is connected; manually assign a DNS to the Wii.
  1. Check the connections to your wireless router:
      Even if you are able to get a working Internet connection to your computer through the wireless router, if it is not properly connected to the modem, the Wii and other devices may not be able to use it.
    • Most routers have five (5) ports on the back. Typically there is a set of four, with a single port either farther away from the rest, or separated with a different color border or line. This single port is often labeled "Internet" or "INT." Make sure the cable coming out of your modem is plugged directly into this "Internet" port, and not into one of the other four that are grouped together.

  2. Manually change your Wii console's DNS settings. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Access the Wii system settings (how to), and use the right arrow twice and select "Internet."
    2. Select "Connection Settings," and choose the connection file (1, 2, or 3) that are you are currently using.
    3. Select "Change settings" and click the right arrow 3 times to reach "Auto-Obtain DNS."
    4. Select "No," and choose "Advanced Settings."
    5. Click into the "Primary DNS" field and enter: 8.8.8.8
    6. Click into the "Secondary DNS" field and enter: 8.8.4.4 Select "Confirm," and then "Save."
    7. Select "OK" to start the connection test. Once the test finishes, try to download the update again.
  3. If you are still getting this error code after trying the steps above, please call 1-800-255-3700 for further assistance.

I'm trying to connect my Wii to the Internet. I currently do not have a wifi connection but I have the adapter that connects to the internet. I have already changed the connection on the Internet...


you can try this step on how to connect your wii console on internet...

Error Code: 52020 What to do will depend on how you are connecting your Wii console. Please use the info below that describes how you are connecting.
    Connecting directly to a modem:
  1. Power off the Wii. Connect the official Nintendo Wii LAN adapter to the Wii, and insert a working ethernet cable into the official Nintendo Wii LAN Adapter.
  2. Unplug all devices from your modem. Most modems are unable to support more than one device at a time.
  3. Power cycle your modem. To do this, unplug the power from your modem and let it rest for 20 seconds. Plug the power back in. Connect the Ethernet cable from your Wii console to the Ethernet port on your modem.

  4. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP address, Default Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS information. 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, including the settings listed above. Input these exactly as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection.
  5. If you are still unable to connect and you are using broadband Internet, then your ISP likely uses PPPoE to establish a connection to their network. The Wii is not compatible with PPPoE. Contact your ISP for more assistance.

    Connecting to a router:
  1. Ensure that an Ethernet Cable is running from the WAN or Internet Port on the router to the modem. Power cycle the modem by unplugging it from the electrical outlet, waiting a moment, and then plugging it back in.
  2. Power off the Wii console, and insert the Wii LAN Adapter into one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii console.
  3. Run an ethernet cable from the Wii to a numbered port on the router.
  4. Power on the Wii console, and run a connection test through the Wii console's online settings.
  5. If the connection test fails, try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's settings on your PC:
    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, including the settings listed above. Input these as they're listed into the "Manual Setup" of the Wii console's internet connection, except for the IP address. The IP address needs to be different. Add 10 to the IP address and use that number in the Wii console's settings.
if this help you please rate me thank you sir.....

Error code 51330 trying 2 connect 2 internet by wireless tds SSID#D2VT9


Hello!
The usual cause of error code 51330 appears to be that the password (also known as a WPA or WEP key) entered into the Wii console is not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow.


This is how to fix it:

Make sure the password is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Security keys are case sensitive.

If this does not work, I would suggest doing a power cycle of your modem and router. This is done by following these steps:
  • Unplug both the modem and the router from the power outlet.
  • Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in.
  • Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router.
  • Try to connect the Wii, Nintendo DS, or Nintendo 3DS online and test for proper response

I have inserted my Netflix Watch Instantly DVD into the WII and I have wireless internet service at home, the console asked me to enter the SSID number so I figured this was my wireless network password...


Hello,

The SSID(network name) is actually the name you give the router. When you are on a wireless device and look at available wireless routers in range, the name you see is the SSID. You can see the SSID in multiple ways,

Login to your router admin page by going to the router ip address(usually 192.168.1.1) and log in. After you log in, go to the wireless settings and confirm your SSID.

If you have a wireless device like a laptop, you can view all available wireless routers in range and you should see yours show up. Check what the name of it is(SSID) and use that and input it into your Wii.

For additional help, read my tech article on how to connect your Wii to the internet. Click here to read it.

I have netflix it keeps reading error code 51030 unable to find an access point please confirm the ssid and try again I check the ssid but it keep saying the same what should I do


You probably have to cycle your network. SSID stands for service set identifier, which is basically a network name. It's how your private wireless network knows that a device is allowed to be on it, essentially. To fix this problem:
1) Unplug both your modem and your wireless router.
2) Leave them sit, powered off, for a few minutes.
3) Plug the modem back in, allowing it to fully boot for a few minutes.
4) Plug the route back in after the modem has had a chance to boot.
5) It may not be necessary, but at this point I would advise rechecking or resetting the wireless connection settings on your Wii. This is really a precautionary step, but will definitely increase your odds of success. Try connecting again.
6) If these steps don't work, completely erase your connection settings and create them again from scratch, making sure to double check that all the settings you are entering are EXACTLY the same as they appear on your router.

Canot conect to internet keeps coming up with error 50300


From www.wiierrorcodes.com Wii Error Code 50300 - 50399

This error is caused by incorrect internet connection settings, such as network name (SSID), WEP/WPA keys, or any manual settings.
To solve this error :
Ensure you have correctly entered basic information such as network name (SSID) and WEP/WPA keys.
Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds. Be sure to test both channels to see which works better or faster.
