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:

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.
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.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I am trying to connect Netflix to my Wii and I keep getting error code 51330 and 51331. I don't know what these errors are. I am trying to set up with wireless internet.


From Nintendo:
Error Code 51330, 51331, and 51332
    It appears that the wireless security pass code for your home network may have been changed or is entered incorrectly on the Wii console. Click here for more information about WEP and WPA security, including how to access the settings for your Access Point.
If your wireless network password isn't wrong, reply. Hope this helps somewhat.

How do I get my Wii to connect to my internet wirelessly? When I try I get error code 51331


Sorry to hear you are having problems with your wii. According to Nintendo, error code 51331 is:
Error Code: 51331

Unable to connect to your wireless network



This error code is more specific to having incorrect security settings on your wii. Your encryption key is wrong when trying to connect to your wireless internet. Double check your encryption key with your router's settings and try again.



You can see the official support article from Nintendo here:

Wii Error Code 51331 means there is a problem with wireless security.
Make sure your router’s WEP/WPA (one or the other not both)key matches the WEP/WPA Key you entered in the Wii.
If you double checked the WEP/WPA key with the router and the Wii and they match, but you still receive the Wii Error Code 51331, then MAC filtering may be enabled in the router. You will have to add your Wii’s MAC address to the router’s allowed list. You can do this by logging into your router and going to the “access control, access list, or network filter” settings.
If you still have trouble with Wii Error Code 51331, try changing the wireless router’s channel to 1 or 11.

You have to have a good internet that can go fast. IF you had any power out problems, you probably have to reset the Wii internet again. Hope that helps.

Error code 51331


If you got error code 51331, this basically means you can't connect to the Internet because of wireless interference.

Try these:
Move your router away from metal objects such as metal cabinets, and place it in a central location in your home.

Do not use other wireless devices while trying to connect to the Internet.

Avoid devices that use a 2.4GHz radio frequency. Look for devices that use a 5.8GHz or 900MHz frequency.

Change the channel on your router to 1 or 11, as these don't overlap.

If you have encyrption on your router, make the WEP/WPA key is correct.

Change the mode on your router to "mixed" or "b/g" mode.

Hope this helps!

Error Code 51331


Wii Error Code 51331 means there is a problem with wireless security.
Make sure your router’s WEP key matches the WEP Key you entered in the Wii.
If your router is using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be 10 characters.
For 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be 26 characters.
WEP Keys can only use the characters 0-9 and A-F.
If your router allows more than one WEP key to be entered at a time, make sure the key you’re using is on slot one.
If you double checked the WEP or WPA key with the router and the Wii and they match, but you still receive the Wii Error Code 51331, then MAC filtering may be enabled in the router. You will have to add your Wii’s MAC address to the router’s allowed list. You can do this by logging into your router and going to the “access control, access list, or network filter” settings.
If you still have trouble with Wii Error Code 51331, try changing the wireless router’s channel to 1 or 11. This may increase download speed.
Check Nintendo’s router page for special notes on your router if available. Follow the instructions of the special notes.
Your wireless router must broadcast in mixed or b/g mode and cannot be set to “g” only mode.
If you still encounter the Wii Error Code 51331, try doing manually setting up the Wii’s internet connection. You can find your network information to enter into the Wii by doing this:
On your PC, click “Start” and then “Run.”
Type “CMD” into the field that appears to open a new window.
Type “IPCONFIG/ALL” and press “Enter” to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.
Power cycle the wireless router and modem by unplugging both from the wall. After waiting a minute, plug the modem back in and wait another couple of minutes for the modem to initialize. Plug the router in and wait for the router to initialize. Now try reconnecting the Wii to Nintendo WiFi Connection.

Hope this helps a little
