There are three possibilites
1. The most failsafe encryption for the Wii is WEP. It probably has issues to confirm the encryption code
2. Your Wireless Router is not compatible. For some reason Wii hates Wireless N and pre-N routers. If you have one of them, make sure that you turn on the Wireless G compatible mode.
3.Your Wii connects but it is unable to gain IP address from the router's DHCP (automated ip assignment). So, you'd have to enter the IP and default gateway by hand on your Wii console.
You'll find those info from your Router's properties page.

It's a bit complicated i know... I hope I helped a bit.

How should I respond to error code:51332 unable to connect to internet?


You need to enter the router's password.
How should you respond? That depends on your mood.

What does error code 51330 mean?


The password or key for your wireless router that was entered is incorrect.
Make sure the password or key is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Keep in mind that security keys are case sensitive. A simple typo may be causing the problem.

How connect wii to wireless


Do you have any wifi security setup in your access point? I don't think the wii can handle the newest security like WPA2. You might need to get rid of the security temporary just to see if the wii can connect.

How do you find tour password for wep on wii


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
