The encryption key is the code used by the wireless router to prevent unauthorized people from using the network. Basically, you need to ask whoever set up the network what the key is.
Or, you could do a hard reset on the router and set up a new key in your router settings.

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

Twher can i find my wap pass phrase


The WPA encryption key is in the wireless setting of your wireless router.
Some later modelwireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID alreadyconfigured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label onthe bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.

I am trying to get on the wii internet like i always could but it loads for 30 sec. to 1 minute. the it says error code: 51332


Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

If your router is using WEP encryption

  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with :
  • WPA - PSK(TKIP)
  • WPA - PSK(AES)
  • WPA2 - PSK(AES)
If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings.

How do I get my Wii to connect to my internet wirelessly? When I try I get error code 51331


Sorry to hear you are having problems with your wii. According to Nintendo, error code 51331 is:
Error Code: 51331

Unable to connect to your wireless network



This error code is more specific to having incorrect security settings on your wii. Your encryption key is wrong when trying to connect to your wireless internet. Double check your encryption key with your router's settings and try again.



You can see the official support article from Nintendo here:

How to connect to the net it keeps saying error


First you must have an active internet connection, second you must have a router (if you are trying to connect multiple items to the internet I.E. your computer AND the Wii), Third you have to determine whether your router is a wireless one or not, if it is then all is great, click on the Wii button in the bottom left corner, click on Wii settings, click on the right pointing arrow to go to page 2 of the settings, click on internet, click on connection settings, click on connection 1 (should say [none] next to it if it doesn't then you might want to clear the settings) click on wireless connection, click on manual setup, enter the SSID, enter the encryption key when asked for it then you should be good to go unless your router's security settings need changing. If you are trying to connect through a wired connection, then you need some other equipment... my Wii doesn't have an ethernet port, just an sd card port, memory card ports, and a couple USB ports, so I assume you need either a usb-ethernet adaptor or a router with a usb port. I've never connected a Wii over anything but a wireless connection so I could be wrong with regard to a wired connection.
