If you only have that modem, and no wireless router, the Wii isn't going to hook into your internet.
If you do have a router, the password is the one you need to hook up wireless with a computer or laptop, and would have been set up by you.

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,

My Wii will not connect to my router. I have tried all the routerlogin.net and .com solution attempts. Also the 192.168.1.1 stuff. No luck. Netgear tells me I have to use their support tech at $69.995....


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. 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:

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key (Wep/Wpa Key) or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

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.
Other Suggestion

Did this connection used to work but has suddenly stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router. Try to connect the Wii and test for proper response.

The Wii may have detected and set itself to the wrong security type during the initial connection set up. Try creating a new connection file and going through the connection process again but be sure that when the Wii asks for a security code, the type shown on screen (WEP or WPA) is what your router is set to. If it is different

Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker

Don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya
