Error Code: 52030

This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:

1. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
* WPA - PSK (TKIP)
* WPA - PSK (AES)
* WPA2 - PSK (AES)

2. If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:
1. From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
2. If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings).
3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.
3.

If your connection was working previously, try power cycling your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response. (Some routers may lose their connection to the Wii console while it is in Standby or turned off for a period of time. Check with your router manufacturer's website for the latest firmware, as there may be an update that will help prevent this issue from occurring in the future.)
4.

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. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available).
5.

Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. 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. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.

Just moved and trying to set up my nintendo wii. im haveing a hard time to get it my internet on there i keep putting my SSID BUT IT KEEPS GIVING ME ERROR CODE LIKE 51031?


    The following Wii error codes all have the same possible solutions, which you can read below this list of codes...
  • All Wii Error Codes between 51000 and 51099
  • All Wii Error Codes Between 54000 and 54099
  • All Wii Error Codes Between 51300 and 51399
  • All Wii Error Codes Between 52100 and 52199
  • All Wii Error Codes Between 52200 and 52299
  • All Wii Error Codes Between 52400 and 52499
  • All Wii Error Codes Between 52500 and 52599
  • 51130This is a General Troubleshooting error code and does not have any one specific cause. You'll need to try the following steps to try to solve the problem.
    1. Your wireless router sends out an internet signal using a specific "channel" (much like a radio broadcasts over the airwaves). You can change the "channel" that your wireless router uses to broadcast the internet signal manually. Nintendo suggests setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11, as these are supposed to be the fastest channels for download speed.
    The Nintendo website has a guide that shows you how to change the channel on your wireless router.
  • https://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/routers/index.jsp
  • 2. In addition to the broadcasting channel, there is also a broadcast setting. This can be set to either "G", "B", or "Mixed." Nintendo suggests that the "Mixed" setting gives the best network connection, but you might need to try all three settings to get the best network connection.
    3. Home appliances and other devices that are near to your console, like microwaves and cordless phones, might cause interference with your wireless network connection, so try turning these off. Other wireless devices like keyboards and computer mice can also interfere with your network connection.

When I try to connect to the Internet it keeps giving me a error code 52030


Error 52030 is a security settings error built into the Wii. This means the Wii is either incompatible with your router's security settings or your router isn't able to assign the Wii an IP address (which means it can't register it onto your network).
Nintendo has provided official information for solving this problem here: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/results.jsp?error_code=52030&system=Wii&locale=lang
Good luck!

My wii will not connect to wireless internet error code 52030


If you get an error code of 52030 on you Wii console, this indicates a problem with your Wii communicating with your wireless router. There are a couple things you can try/check to help fix this problem.

1 - Try using a different channel on your router and update your Wii to take to the router on that channel.

2 - If your router is using WEP (encryption), make sure your Wii is set to the same encryption.

  4. Select "Connection 1: None"
      wiisettingsinternet3.gif
      (Don't see "None" in Connection 1? Click the Connection 1 button, then choose "Clear Settings.")
  5. Click on "Wireless Connection" and then "Search for an Access Point."
      wiisettingsinternet4.png
      (Are you using a wired Internet connection to your Wii console? If so, click here for specific help.)
  6. Select "OK" and the Wii will display all the wireless networks it finds.

  7. Select the wireless network that is yours.
      (If you're not sure which is yours, or you don't see any wireless networks, click here.)

  8. Asked to enter a security key? If you are prompted to "Enter the Password or Key," then the wireless network you are trying to connect to has wireless security turned on. You will need to type in your security key or password and select "OK." secureaccess.png Don't know your router's security key? Let us help you find your router's security key. Select the brand of your router below and we'll provide you with the default information for that brand! Linksys Netgear DLink Belkin Apple 2Wire All other brands
  9. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."

    • The Wii console will run a connection test with your wireless network when the test is completed. You should see the following screen:
        sfapun2.gif
        As long as you see "The connection test was successful," the "Wii Support Code" does not matter and can be ignored

    • The connection test was successful - Then you're almost done! After your connection test, the Wii console will check if there is a new Wii System Update available. Once you select "Yes" and "I Accept," the Wii will begin to download any available updates. Click here to find out what's next!

    • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
      • Error Code 51330 or 52130: This means the security code you entered into the Wii is not the same one your router is set to. Look in your router's settings and try again. Please refer to step seven (7) above for more information.
      • All other error codes: Try our error code troubleshooting where we have detailed information on many common error codes. (You can ignore any "Wii Support Code" you receive on a connection test.)

Error code 52030


I'm not sure if this is the case, but don't plug the WiFi adapter into the Wii console, plug it into the USB port in your computer. If you are plugging it into your computer, there might be too many walls between your computer and Wii, in that case get a USB extension cord.
