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.

We had are wii hooked up on internet and lost connection now we cant get it to work


Hi there,

Unable to connect to your wireless network


Likely cause 1: It appears 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.


How to fix 1: Make sure the password is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Security keys are case sensitive.

Likely cause 2: It appears that the DNS servers that were provided to your Wii are incorrect or the Wii Console doesn't recognize the server.


How to fix 2: Go to your DNS settings under the Wireless Networks tab and manually set the DNS to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 which are Google's DNS Servers.

Other suggestions:

  • Did this connection used to work but has suddenly stopped? "Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this:
    • 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

  • Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker.
If you are still having problems, contact Nintendo and they will help you get to the root of your problem - Nintendo Wii Support

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

I bought a wireless router and when I try to hook it up to the wii I do the test and it says error code 50300


Error code 50300 for the Wii signifies that your wireless settings are not correct. What you have to do is go into the Wii Internet setup, and make sure that the settings on your Wii are identical to the setup in the wireless router that you are trying to use. The most common problems include:

1) SSID, which is the name of the wireless network that you setup in the router.

2) The WEP or WPA key, which is the security password that you setup for either of the security protocols that the wireless networks use. You should definitely use the WPA security protocol as the WEP protocol was hacked some time ago.

3) Any manual settings you may have setup, such as whether you are using a fixed TCIP address or a dynamic one.

If you setup the router yourself then you should be able to check the settings on the Wii on your own to verify they are correct. If you had someone else setup the router, use the following link on the Nintendo website which will help you go through the Wii settings to ensure all is well:

    • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.

Im kinda new to computers and all but im trying to hook my wii to the internet but i keep getting error code 52030 whats going on?i have a 2wire router


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.

EROR CODE 52031 ON NINTENDO WII


Hi,If you’re using WEP or WPA for your router’s security, log into your router by typing its IP address in your internet browser and make sure your WEP or WPA key entered in the Wii matches the key in the wireless router. The WEP Key can only use characters 0-9 and A-F. If your router allows more than one WEP Key to be entered, make sure the key in slot #1 is the active key. The Wii can only use the key in slot 1.If you entered the correct key, then check to see if MAC filtering is enabled in the “access control, access list, or network filter” section of the wireless router. If MAC filtering is enabled, you will need to enter the Wii’s MAC address into the “allowed” list for MAC addresses.
If none of these were the problem and your connection used to work, try power cycling both the router and modem by unplugging both from the wall. Wait a couple of minutes before plugging the modem back in. Wait another couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug the router back in and wait until the router initializes.
Ensure that your wireless router has the latest firmware installed. You will need to go the router manufacturer’s website to download the firmware.
If Wii Error Code 52031 is still a problem, try changing the broadcast channel of the wireless router to 1 or 11. This can help increase download speed.
You an also try manually entering the Wii’s internet settings. You will need to first get the network configurations from your PC.
On your PC, click “Start” and then “Run.”
Type “CMD” into the field that appears to open a new window.
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.
Good luck

  1. Turn of wireless security in the router, see if you can get the Wii to work UNSECURE.
  2. If the Wii, connects with security turned off, then enable security on the router (WPA is recommended) and a 10 digit key (I use an onld phone number from my childhood)
  3. Go back to internet settings on the Wii, select the wireless configuration you were using, click advanced, and enter the WPA key.
