Wii set up problems

We just bought a Wii and were setting it up tonight. We followed the instructions exactly as they were written, and we can't get the menu to show up when it is powered on. I'm sure it has to do with selecting the right channel, but we are at a complete loss.

Hi just bought a WII from Hong Kong along with the Free Loader disc.
It is still in Japanese.Do we have to get another disc to change the language or can we do it with the disc supplied?
Can you let us know the steps to change the language?
I was assured that it would work.......

How do i get the internet connection on the wii to get netflix

Sorry to hear your having problems with your wii. You can connect the wii via wifi or wired with an adapter. Check out Nintendo's tutorial for instructions on how to do this:

You basically goto:
Wii Options at the bottom left corner of your home screen, then Wii Settings, Click the right arrow to goto the next page, Click Internet, Click Connection Settings, Click Connection 1, Click Wireless Connection. Click Search for an Access Point. Click OK to view the found access points. Select the Access point for your wireless internet, enter your encryption key, click Ok and then OK again to save settings, and then OK again to test the connection.

Once you have set up your wifi connection you can download the netflix channel from the wii shop channel for free. Then you can follow the on screen instruction when you launch the netflix channel to watch netflix on your wii.

Internet error code on wii 51330 whats it mean please

It means that your Wii cannot to your wireless network with your current settings.

To fix this, make sure your security settings match exactly with the settings on the router. The Wii can only support WEP and WPA encryption.

If you are unsure how to change your security settings, go to this link: Then, select your specific router and follow the instructions.

Tips: Security keys are case-sensitive. Type them in exactly as they appear on you router security settings. Some routers have default security keys located on a sticker on the back.
Sometimes the router suddenly stops working. Unplug it and plug it back in, and it should reboot.

How do i factory reset ?

Here is how to reset your Nintendo Wii:

1. First, the easy way. A soft reset of the Ninetendo Wii. If you Nintendo Wii has just started acting up and there is no reason to perform a hard reset then follow this instruction. Simply press the reset button and hold down for 2 seconds on your Nintendo Wii Console.

2. Now, for the more advanced hard reset. Interestingly, the Nintendo Wii has NO hard reset facility to be accessed through the machine or via buttons. The ONLY way to hard reset your Nintendo Wii is to UNPLUG it for 5 minutes. Once it is unplugged it resets itself and your badly behaving Nintendo Wii should be restored.

Note: By hard resetting the Nintendo Wii, it will not delete any information on the SD Card that is used for storage. If you wish to delete this data, stick it into a computer with a multi-media card device or a digital camera and reformat it.

Another option to try is to go to the following:
Wii settings and press reformat wii system memory.
The last part of wii settings and press reformat wii system memory.
The last part of wii settings and press reformat wii settings and press reformat wii system memory.

If all else fails you can ask nintendo, you can call them at 1800-255-3700
I hope this helps and good luck.

Cant connect my wii get error 51030

This might be handy: and
Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed.

Verify that the proper Connection File (1, 2, or 3) is selected in the Wii System Settings.

If you have multiple connection files setup, and you have recently received a system update, it is possible that the update has caused the Wii console to select a different Connection File. Click here for step-by-step instructions on viewing your connection settings.

Make sure that your network's name (SSID) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings.

Log in to your router using the default IP (consult the router's owner's manual for assistance).

Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the Internet Settings of your Wii console that the SSID is appearing exactly as listed in your router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.
