Hi ELAINETONKIN,

The key is a setting from the WiFi connection your trying to use. If it is a WEP WiFi connections you need the WEP Key, which is a long string of numbers and letters. If you are using a WPA WiFi then the key will be your WPA password/passpharse. This can be found on the routers settings, or instruction manual for the router. If you have a PC or laptop that uses this connection then you would have already needed to enter the Key on there to allow you to connect.

I am trying to watch a movie on net flix, however everytime I tried to look for the internet service the following error comes up: Error code 51330 is unable to connect to the internet.


Hi there!
Error code 51330 on the Wii means that the password you entered into the Wii to set up your internet was entered incorrectly. You will need to go back into your internet connections settings menu on your Wii and enter the correct password/security key for your router. Please remember the security key is case sensitive.
Hope this helps!

Okay I enter my wifi password and stuff and when it is trying to connect it says.. Unable to connect to the Internet. Choose Internet setting and then confirm your connection. How do I do that?


Hi laurennajar,

If you want to connect you Wii to the internet wirelessly first we need to know the settings of your router. Listed below are the steps on how to access your router. You need a working computer connected to the router to access it follwed by the steps on how to connect our Wii.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remeber the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we have the information needed lets connect your Wii to the internet.

1. Select Wii Settings
2. Then Internet Connection Settings
3. Search for an AP or SSID
4. Input Security Key or Network Key
5. Test the Connection.

I cant get the internet on it im mad


Hi katelynriker,

If you want to connect your wii to the internet there are 2 ways, Wired and Wirelessly. If you want to connect wirelessly I've listed the steps on how to do it including on how to obtain the information on your router. Keep in mind that you need a working computer which is connected to the router.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remeber the details.
4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.
Now that we already have the information of your router now is the time we connect the Wii to the internet

1. On your Wii go to Wii Settings
2. Then Select Internet Connection Settings
3. Search for an AP (Access Point) or SSID (Network Name). This is the reason why we need to know the SSID so that we are sure that we are trying to connect to youre own network.
4. Lastly it will ask you to Input the Security Key (Network Key).
5. Try to connect and if successful, Rate me so i can help others like you.

Have wire less internet trying to set it up on the wii have a error code 51330 . what should i do?


It appears that the security settings entered into the Wii console are not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow. which is most likely a wep key a 10 digit passcode to allow connection to that wireless router (most likely was incorrectly put in)
