I assume you mean the WEP/WPA key. Just go into your router and reset or look up the key.
To get into the router control panel enter 192.168.1.1 then navigate to the Wireless Tab and then the Security Section. Your key will be there. You should have the option to view the key in text or reset the key. Remember to write it down some place if you reset it.
Good luck,
Cullen

I am trying to watch a movie on net flix, however everytime I tried to look for the internet service the following error comes up: Error code 51330 is unable to connect to the internet.


Hi there!
Error code 51330 on the Wii means that the password you entered into the Wii to set up your internet was entered incorrectly. You will need to go back into your internet connections settings menu on your Wii and enter the correct password/security key for your router. Please remember the security key is case sensitive.
Hope this helps!

I can't get past my security code for my router, it's a secured access, I put in every password I know, changed it, and put in the numbers from the bottom of the router.What do I do??


On the Wii I had I remember when I set up internet I had to change my security method back to WEP on the router because the Wii couldn't use any other security method. That was several years ago though so not positive if they updated the console since then to allow other security modes.

I keep trying to connect my wii to the Internet but it always says error code:51330


This error code points to your security settings for you Wii system. They probably don't match up with the settings for your router.
1) Check your router's security settings and make sure that the settings you have entered for your Wii system are EXACTLY the same.
2) After you have double checked and changed any settings as applicable, try restarting your system and logging on to the internet again.
3) If this doesn't work, try cycling your modem and router by unplugging them both, then plug in the modem for a few minutes, then plugging in the router after. This should refresh your home network.
4) If the problem still persists, try creating a new connection on your Wii with the proper settings, making sure that everything you enter is correct for your router.
