Question about Nintendo Wii Console
Posted by Anonymous on
Not only will I tell you what it means, Kyle(can I call you Kyle? Good), but I will offer a solution to this problem AND give you something that will help you out with any future Wii errors. Brace for HELPFUL.
Error code 51030 means that you're unable to connect to your wireless network. Woah woah woah! Easy there Kyle, don't throw out your Wii just yet; wii can fix it! (I do puns too)
Check out your router. Is it on? It should be. Now turn it off. Is it plugged in? Unplug it. Now do a little dance. Finished? Great. Plug it back in.turn it back on. Fire up the Wii and give it another go.
Still no good? That's no good! Let's try messing with some settings on the Wii. I know I know, settings are scary. Everything should just be automatic these days. Well don't worry, I'm going to walk you through it.
Turn the Wii on and at the main screen (the one with the channels) point to the bottom left. With your wiimote, I mean. C'mon Kyle, that'd be awkward if you were just pointing at your screen. Anyways, click it, then navigate to Wii Settings > Internet (it's on page 2). Click on a new connection, or delete an old one and then click on it. Go through and re-set-up your connection.
Everything should be awesome now. But if you recall, I said I'd help out with FUTURE Wii error codes as well. Am I magic, you ask? Yes, but that's irrelephant (not pertaining to elephants) and irrelevant.
So now, Kyle, I bequeath upon you this link. Use it wisely.
Notice on the left side there's a little box labelled "Error Code Lookup"? I think you can figure out what goes there.
It's.... it's the error codes, just so ya know.
-Error Code 51030: Unable to connect to your wireless network
-To fix it, unplug and replug in your router. If problems persist, set-up a new wireless connection on the Wii. (Guide for that here)
-Future Error Codes can be check out here (box labelled "Error Code Lookup" on the left side)
I feel like we've learned so much today. The moral of the story? Anything is possible through teamwork.
Hope everything works out!

The only wireless network within range of your Wii console is not configured or is not compatible with the Wii.
If you are getting this error after completing a system update, this is usually because the console resets to using the first connection slot after an update. There are two things you can do:
If you know which connection file you were using before, you can select that connection file, then select "Use this connection" to change that to the default. You will need to do this each time they download an update.
If you don't know which connection file you are using, or if you would prefer not to update the active connection file each time, try to clear, and then re-create your connection setting in slot one before doing the remaining troubleshooting.
Check for interference that may be preventing a successful connection..
Check to see if the router you are using is a known to be incompatible. . If your router is known to be incompatible, we recommend using a different router if possible.
Make sure that the SSID (network name) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings
I hope that will help .

Make sure your wireless network is set up correctly with the correct SSID and encryption key. You may also just need to power cycle your router.
