From the Wii main menu, use the Wii Remote to select the "Wii" button.
Now, select "Wii Settings" to access the "Wii System Settings" menu.
Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, scroll to page two and select "Internet."
Select "Connection Settings."
Select "Connection 1: None"
(Don't see "None" in Connection 1? Click the Connection 1 button, then choose "Clear Settings.")
Click on "Wireless Connection" and then "Search for an Access Point."
Select "OK" and the Wii will display all the wireless networks it finds.
Select the wireless network that is yours.
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."
  1. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."
    • The Wii console will run a connection test with your wireless network.
  • 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.
  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
    • Error Code 51330: 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.

Hi there!
There are two ways to connect your Wii to the internet; you can connect to your wireless network (if you have a wireless modem set up in your house), or you can connect using a wired connection directly to your modem.
If using a wired connection, you will need to purchase a Wii LAN adapter and connect that from your WII into your wired router.

Once you have figured out what connection type you will use (and if using a wired connection, purchased and connected your Wii LAN adapter) you will need to take the following steps:
FOR WIRELESS CONNECTION:
  • Turn on your Wii and click on the "Wii" button on the bottom left of the screen
  • Click on "Wii Settings"
  • Click on the arrow on the right side of the screen and select "Internet"
  • Select "Connection 1 : none" (if you don't see "None" in Connection 1, click the Connection 1 button, then choose "Clear Settings")
  • Click on "Wireless Connection" and then "Search for an Access Point"
  • Select "OK" and the Wii will display all the wireless networks it finds.
  • Select the wireless network that is yours.
  • If it asks you to enter a password or key, then your wireless connection is password protected and you will need to enter the password that was setup to allow access to your network.
  • Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."
  • Your Wii will test the connection and you should get a message saying connection was successful.
FOR WIRED CONNECTIONS:
  • Connect your Wii to the Wii LAN adapter and connect that to your modem or broadband adapter. Please not that you will need to unplug your modem for a few minutes to reset the connection and you will also need to unplug the connection to your computer when you want to connect your Wii to the internet.
  • Turn on your Wii and select the Wii icon on the bottom left
  • Click on "Wii Settings"
  • Click the arrow on the right side of the screen and select "Internet"
  • Click "Connection Settings"
  • Click "Connection 1 : none" (if you don't see "None" in Connection 1, click the Connection 1 button, then choose "Clear Settings")
  • Click "Wired Connection"
  • Click "Ok"
  • Your Wii will now do a connection test
  • You should see a message saying the test was successful
Hope this helps!

Reboot your wireless internet and move your Wii closer to the source of the wireless internet. If this doesn't work, you can purchase a LAN extension for you wii and hook it up to the internet directly through a wired connection. Let me know if you need anything else.

First you need to have a wireless internet connection,
next you need to turn on your wii and go to wii system settings
then scroll over to internet
next go to connection settings and choose connection 1 2 or 3
choose wireless connection, then choose search for an access point
