Error Code: 51031 - I had same problem. Worked one day, not the next. I went into Wii Settings/ Internet/ Connection Settings/ Conection 1,2 or 3/ Clear Settings. Then click 'Search for access point'. Click on your your home internet (Sky, Virgin, O2 or whatever), input WEP (written on base of router) or private password if you changed the WEP when you first got broadband installed in your house and it should connect.

Wii game servers were recently taken off line. So if you were trying to access the online portions of games such as Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, Dr Mario etc they will only be playable offline. My understanding is that the E-shop where you can purchase downloadable games is still up and running but any game with online features - well it's no longer a feature as it is no longer supported. This is the natural progression for online games as systems and games age, their online components are removed (in particular as Nintendo allocates more resources to the Wii U and its gaming servers).
<span>Nintendo Wii Error Code 51031</span><br /><br /><span>This error code means that the wireless network within range is not configured or is not compatible with your Nintendo Wii.</span><br /><br />-Make sure the router you are using is compatible. You can see a list of compatible routers by clicking <a href="http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/routers/index.jsp">here</a><br /><br />-Make sure the SSID(network name) you enter into the Wii settings matches the SSID of your router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.<br /><br />You can log in to your router by going to the gateway address of the router(usually 192.168.1.1 and type this into your internet browser), and going into the wireless settings section. Check what the SSID is. This is what you should set on the WII.<br /><br />You can view my tech article on connecting and changing Wii network settings by clicking <a href="http://www.fixya.com/support/r9198848-connect_nintendo_wii_internet">here</a><br /><br />-In your home network, your router may not be assigning an IP address to your Wii console. Power cycle the equipment. Turn off all devices(modem, router and Wii). After 10 seconds turn on the modem, after 30 seconds turn on the router and after 30 seconds turn on the Wii. Try to connect online.<br /><br />If you are not using DCHP but instead have your home network setup to assign a IP address manually, you will need to setup the Wii with the IP/DNS addresses.

It appears that your Wii console's Internet connection may be affected by wireless interference. Try the following:
Change your wireless router's channel to 1 or 11 Changing the wireless channel on your router may help. Most wireless routers have a channel range of 1 through 11. The best channels to try are usually 1 and 11, as they do not overlap with other channels. Typically, the channel settings for your router will be found in the router's main "Wireless" tab.
Where is your wireless router located? Move your router away from walls and off the floor and try to place it in a central location in your home. Also, keep it away from metal objects such as metal filing cabinets which can cause interference.
Look for other devices Noise from cordless devices (cordless phones), or wireless electronics (wireless keyboards, headphones, cell phones), especially those using the 2.4GHz frequency, can interfere with your wireless signal. Also, older microwave models can cause wireless interference. Avoid electronics that use the 2.4GHz frequency, instead look for devices that use the 5.8GHz or 900MHz frequencies.

It usually means that your wireless router is using a setting that is not compatible with the Wii, for example if it is set to 802.11n, set your router to 802.11g instead. Also make sure that your router's security is set to WEP, not WPA and also check that you have the SSID right (which you should do if the Wii scanned it)
