Your Wii could stop connecting to your router for various reasons. I would first try power cycling your router / modem.
1.) Unplug your router, and modem if you have one, for a minimum of 30 seconds. 2.) Plug your modem back up first, if you don't have a modem, just plug up your router. 3.) Wait 60 seconds and try to connect again.
If that didn't work, try moving your Wii to another room or area in the house, or perhaps you need to try moving your router. If you have cleared the settings, then I would suggest opening the ports on your router. I could explain how, but you haven't specified your type of router.
Your best bet is to call your Internet Service Provider (Bellsouth, AOL, Charter, etc.) and have them fix the solution and troubleshoot you through your problem.

Again, I wish I could go more in detail on assisting you with your problem, but your router, modem, and ISP are vital information needed to further aid you with this issue. I hope what I've said helps or puts you in the right direction.

Error code 32004

we need to start from square one... let's do this

Power on your Wii console and press the A Button on the Wii Remote to reach 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 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."

(Are you using a wired Internet connection to your Wii console?

Select "OK" and the Wii will display all the wireless networks it finds.

Select the wireless network that is yours.

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."

Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."

The Wii console will run a connection test with your wireless network when the test is completed. You should see the following screen:

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. Click here to find out what's next!

The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.

Error Code 51330 or 52130: 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.

As a last resort... 1. reset your router or 2. temporarily remove the password from your router... this way you will know where the problems lies.

Cannot connect to internet

Wii consoles can hook up wirelessly with a wireless router. If you have the proper equipment hit
the WII button on the left of the screen by using the cursor over it and pressing A, go into Wii options then settings. Scroll through the options until the internet option shows up. Then
go to connection settings and choose an open connection then wireless connection search
for an access point then choose the access point. Then do a connection test at this point
the Wii should connect. If the router has security the security values will also need to be configured
Should ask for these on setup if needed

I have an error code 52130 and my Wii will not connect to Netflix. My wireless network is working and can connect to my phone and computer. I have tried to reset my password. I need and answer please.

This error is caused by a wireless router firewall issue.

To solve this error, try to manually setup the Wii console using your network IP settings.

To do a manual setup of the Wii console using your network IP settings :

  • On a PC, click Start > Run > type CMD and press Enter > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter. On Windows Vista, click Start > type CMD in the Start Search box > click on CMD icon > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter.
  • Locate IP settings and use them to manually set the Wii console.
  • Restart your wireless router by unpluging the power from the wall and plugging it back in. Try to connect the Wii console to the internet.

You may also try to disable the wireless router security or firewall. Try again to connect the Wii console to the internet.

Unable to connect Wii to internet

When you go to the Wii options->wii settings->internet->connection settings->connection 1..clear settings. Then go back to connection 1 and click 'wireless connection' Then 'search for access point'. Your wireless should be one of the choices(plus any nearby neighbors). If no wireless connections available then recheck your router. If you are sure there should be an access point and the Wii didn't find it, possibly defective wireless in the Wii.

Cannot connect the wii to wireless internet

Goto 'wii options' (bottom left of screen). Wii settings-> then page over to 'Internet' then 'connection settings' then 'conection 1'. Clear any setings. Then go back to connection 1 and click 'wireless connection' then 'search for access point'. If your wireless router is set up right in your home then you should see it as an option when you click 'OK'. Choose your connection, then enter your router password. If your wii can't find an access point then either your router isn't set up correctly or your wii's wireless is defective.

Trying to connect wii wireless through my westell 7500 modem from verizon. error code 52230 keeps coming up. on phone with nintendo for an hour. they tried all kinds of stuff that did not work. told me...

It appears that the wii wants to work with wap security not wep. Need to go into the router with the gateway. Next o to the security tab. Set up wap2 security password. On the drop down menu choose tkip and aes (both) setting. On the wii I would clear out the wireless settings and then set up a new wireless connection. Search for said and choose your router. Hit connect and enter your password. Save settings and have the wii connect, should get a connection successful message. Grab some popcorn and enjoy Netflix.

Wii lost connection to internet how to reconnect

FIRST, you want to check and make sure that your router is working and sending a network signal. When you find that it is and your Wii still won't connect, try moving your router to a better location where the wii can receive the signal more clearly. Then go to the Wii "Options", then Wii "Settings, Scroll through screens to "Internet" option, then "Connection Settings". Choose your Wireless Connection that you were using and do a "Connection Test". Sometimes it's only a matter of a couple of feet and the signal won't be strong enough, especially if the Wii and the router are in seperate rooms. If all else fails, simply clear the settings for the wireless connection you were using and start from scratch by re-entering the connection settings for your home network. Hope this helps!

How to connect to the net it keeps saying error

First you must have an active internet connection, second you must have a router (if you are trying to connect multiple items to the internet I.E. your computer AND the Wii), Third you have to determine whether your router is a wireless one or not, if it is then all is great, click on the Wii button in the bottom left corner, click on Wii settings, click on the right pointing arrow to go to page 2 of the settings, click on internet, click on connection settings, click on connection 1 (should say [none] next to it if it doesn't then you might want to clear the settings) click on wireless connection, click on manual setup, enter the SSID, enter the encryption key when asked for it then you should be good to go unless your router's security settings need changing. If you are trying to connect through a wired connection, then you need some other equipment... my Wii doesn't have an ethernet port, just an sd card port, memory card ports, and a couple USB ports, so I assume you need either a usb-ethernet adaptor or a router with a usb port. I've never connected a Wii over anything but a wireless connection so I could be wrong with regard to a wired connection.

It said error code 51030

Error Code: 51030
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. Click here for tips.

  • Check to see if the router you are using is a known to be incompatible. Click here to view our list. 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. To verify:
    1. Login to your router's settings (click here and select your router, if available, for information).
    2. Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
    3. After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the manual settings of the Wii console that the SSID appears exactly as listed in the consumer's router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.

  • Look up your router, if available, in our list of wireless routers, and check for any special notes that may be necesary to get the connection to work properly.

  • The router may not be assigning an IP address to the Wii console, and a connection using the "Manual Settings" may be necessary. Click here for help.

  • Your router may require a firmware update to work properly with the Wii console. Firmware updates can usually be found on the router manufactruer's website; consult the manufacturer for more information.

Cant connect my wii get error 51030

This might be handy: and
Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed.

Verify that the proper Connection File (1, 2, or 3) is selected in the Wii System Settings.

If you have multiple connection files setup, and you have recently received a system update, it is possible that the update has caused the Wii console to select a different Connection File. Click here for step-by-step instructions on viewing your connection settings.

Make sure that your network's name (SSID) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings.

Log in to your router using the default IP (consult the router's owner's manual for assistance).

Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the Internet Settings of your Wii console that the SSID is appearing exactly as listed in your router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.
