http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/results.jsp?error_code=51030&system=Wii&locale=en_US
means that your wii is having trouble connecting to your wireless network.
please make sure that you wireless network signal is in range of the wii
setup your wii with wifi by going to the wii button on the home screen
wii settings> then page 2 select the internet.
go to wireless connection and connection 1 to setup your wifi.
search for access points and input the wireless security password to connect to the wireless network.
if this worked and you still get the error code please power cycle the wii and also check your wireless connection settings and any interference from other wireless networks. you may need to change the channel for the wireless network to 1 or 11.

Netflix keeps giving an error message(51030) What do I do? I can't watch movies


From what I have seen, this may be related to your router. The suggestion is to power cycle the router. If your router does not have a power switch just unplug it for a minute then plug it back in. This is not unusual, particularly if your media streamer (Roku, Playstation, etc.) gets a software update.

I can't get connected to Netflix. I keep getting error 51030


That sounds like a Nitendo Wii errorcode; assuming your using that to watch Netflix:

From the tech support website: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/results.jsp?error_code=51030&system=Wii&locale=en_US

Error Code: 51030
Unable to connect to your wireless network
Likely cause: Your wireless router may need to be power cycled, or the connection settings have changed.
How to fix: Power cycle your router; redo the connection settings on the Wii and try again.
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddenly stopped? "Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this, unplug both the modem and the router 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, Nintendo DS, or Nintendo 3DS online and test for proper response.
  • Erase your old connection settings on the Wii and set up a new one, as your router's settings may have changed since you last connected. We suggest following our guide to create a new connection file and start over. If at the end you still need help, you'll find contact information to reach our specially-trained representatives.

I just signed up for netflix and am trying to hook it up to my wii to watch movies. The wii is properly connected and hooked up, and we have a wireless internet connection in my home, however when i go to...


Error code 51030 means you Wii is unable to connect to your wireless network.
Try unplugging your modem and wireless router, then plugging them back in after a couple minutes.
While you're waiting for your modem and router, delete your network setting from your Wii, and set them back up once your router and modem are back up.
Your wireless router's setting might have changed and your Wii might not be able to properly connect.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with your wii. According to Nintendo, error code 51030 is:
"Error Code: 51030

Unable to connect to your wireless network"



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.



For more information, here is the official support article from nintendo for this error:

I keep getting an error code on my wii can you please tell me what it means 51030


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.

RECAP TIME:
-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!
