The WEP key is the security key that was set up in the wireless router or access point. It will be the same as your wireless WEP key for your laptop or PC. I assume you have access to your router admin and therefore shouild be able to either recover it or change it to something you know.

How to access wireless internet in WII ?


First of all you need to know what is the Network name (SSID) and Password(security key) for your wireless network... Also make sure the firewall is disabled in your wireless router....Now, turn on the Wii...
Click the icon that looks like a house (home) on the Wii remote, you will see the Menu of your WII console...
Go to the settings > Select Internet connection settings > Select Wireless > Now select look for an Access Point in range...
You will see the list of available networks in range.... You must be able to see your network name among the list of wireless networks... Now select your network and select done...
Now it will ask you to enter the security settings... Enter your WPA or WEP key and select done...!
Thats it ! You are done...! Now it will test the Internet connection... After testing the connection, it will ask you to update the firmware, update the firmware and finish the process... You must be able to play the games online...

Error code 51330


The error code 51330 means that your Wii cannot connect to the internet through your wireless connection.
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 so m
ake sure the password is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Security keys are case sensitive.

I have an error coming up on my screen for the wii saying unable to connect to the internet error 51330


The error 51330 normally means that the password or WEP key you entered to connect to the internet through the Wii did not match the one the wireless router needs to allow connection.
If you don't know the password, check to bottom of your router, it will usually have a sticker on the bottom with the standard password on it. This can also be marked as WEP key or WPA key. Enter that password exactly as it appears there, as it is case sensitive. If the password is correct and the problem still exists, try turning your router off, waiting 30 seconds to a minute, then turning it back on. Let it set itself up again, this will usually take a minute or two, then try connecting your Wii to the internet again. If the problem continues, try altering your routers wireless channel setting. As most routers work on channel 6 by default, there could be interference. This process is different for each router.

Can't connect WII to netflix. Ger error code51330


Hi,

This error usually indicates that the WEP key you set on your Wii is not the correct one to gain access to your router.

When you setup a router for wireless internet, you usually set a WEP key. This is basically a security key(password) that you set so any device that wants to use your internet, has to enter correctly.

If you know your router security key, go into your Wii network settings and make sure it is entered correctly. I wrote a article on how to configure your Wii for internet. Click here to read it.

If you do not know the security key of your router, then read my other article by clicking here. This article will go over how to find the router security key.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Regards,

I am trying to get my nintendo wifi connection on my game to work and i have half of it done but i need a WEP key and i dont know my WEP key i dont know what it is.


wep key is another word for password. when you set up your home network who ever set it up set it up with a password to make it more secure. which is a good thing security wise but bad when trying to gt your gaming device to connect.... this site should walk you step by step in setting up your wii and also getting a wep key. just start with first time setup link

Can't get wii connected to internet, keeps asking for key code.


It could be that the encryption method on your router is not supported by the wii. It also may be that you are using WEP and trying to connect in the 2,3, or 4 spots. The wii for whatever reason can only connect to WEP in the number 1 slot. The Wii is also compatible with WPA types WPA - PSK (TKIP), WPA - PSK (AES), WPA2 - PSK (AES). Check your router and try again.

Your Wii will only connect properly to your wireless router by the setting WEP any others and you get problems. Set your router to WEP and encription strenth to 64bit, enter a WEP key "or passphrase to generate a WEP key" its a 10 digit password for your wireless security. Oh also nintendo will only work on chanel mode G&B not G not B but G&B.

Hope this helps.

Thanks
