1. Make sure you're connected to the internet via something other than the AirPort card (i.e. Ethernet). Also, make sure AirPort is on.

2. Turn on Internet Sharing:
* Go to System Preferences, click on the Sharing icon, then click on the Internet tab.
* Change the Share your connection from: pop-up to 'Built-in Ethernet.'
* Under the To computers using section, check the AirPort box.
* Click Airport options...
* Enter an easy name such as wii. Leave all the security options blank -- implementing security is an exercise left to the reader -- then click OK.
* Click Start in the Internet Sharing panel.

3. Gather Information:
* Open Terminal.app and type ifconfig en1. In the output...
* Look for: inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask ...
* Take note the IP Address associated with the first inet, negating values after the # (mine was 10.0.2.1; yours may be different).
* Type dig. Near the bottom of this output will be SERVER: followed by an IP address. This will be the DNS server you will use for your wii.

4. Configure the wii:
* Select a connection to edit.
* Choose Manual Setup.
* Enter the following parameters:
* SSID: wii (or whatever you chose in step one)
* Auto-obtain IP Address: No
* IP Address: Take the first IP Address you obtained earlier, and make the last digit different. i.e., mine could be 10.0.2.4 (10.0.2.1 was original)
* Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
* Default router: The original IP Address, unchanged. (10.0.2.1)
* Auto-obtain DNS: No
* Primary DNS: your DNS SERVER from the dig output.
* Secondary DNS: leave as 000.000.000.000
* Test your connection at the top of the screen. hope it works

How do i connect to internet when i try it says unable to preform the wii system update because of an internet error and im getting the error code 32002


Try changing your channel on the router to 11 or 1. For Linksys WRT54G routers enter the ip address of the router (default is 192.168.1.1) enter password and user name (default is admin/admin) then click wireless tab, now select a different wireless channel from the drop down box. Fix is not guaranteed to work for all consoles.

The WEP encryption has to be set on Key 1 in order for the Wii to recognize it. It's the same with the DS

I found a solution to this. I was able to pass the connection test, but I would fail during update with code 32002. The solution turned out to be to enter manually the ip address of DNS that my wireless router used. (via email, thanks jamh)

I had to change the MTU value from 0 (Default) to 1500 witch it was in the router for the Wii to finally connect and download the updates.

Hope this helps

    How do you set up Internet on the wii?


    To access the internet with your wii console you'll need either a wireless router/gateway, or a wii wired LAN connector.

    1. Power on your Wii console
    2. Access the "Wii Setting" menu by selecting the circular wii icon in the bottom left of the screen and then choosing wii settings.
    3. Use the arrow on the right of the screen to move to page two, then select "internet".
    4. Select "Connection 1 ' None"
    5. Choose "Wireless Connection" (assuming you have a wireless router), then select "Search for Access Point".
    6. Wait for your wii to scan, then select your wireless network, and if prompted enter your wireless network password/key. Then click "OK".

    You should now be able to connect to the internet. If your Wii runs a connection test and it proves unsuccessful it will display an error code. If you get Error Code 51330 or 52130 this means the password you entered does not match the password on the wireless network you are attempting to join. A list of all other error codes and what they mean can be found here: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/onlineErrorCodes.jsp

    I can not connect to the wirelless conection.


    Hi santi_agu2,
    You did not mention what type of console you have. Anyway, here are the intructions if you have a Nintendo Wii. Go to the Main menu by Pressing the A Button. Choose "Wii Settings" and go to "Wii System Settings" menu. Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, scroll to page two and select "Internet." Select "Connection 1: None" (if you don't see any connections just choose "Clear Settings.") Click on "Wireless Connection" and then "Search for an Access Point." Select the wireless connection that is yours and then input the router password. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." The unit will then run a connection test. After the connection test, the Wii console will check if there is a new Wii System Update available. Just select "Yes" and "I Accept," the Wii will begin to download any available updates. You will now be connected to the internet. All the best to you. I hope everything works out.
