Likely cause: It appears that the password (also known as a WPA or WEP key) entered into the Wii console is not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow.
How to fix: Make sure the password is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Security keys are case sensitive.
Don't know how to find your router's password?
Look for a sticker on the bottom of your router. Many routers provided by Internet service providers have their default password located on a sticker on the bottom of the router.

If you're not able to locate the password here, select the brand of your router below and we'll show you how to access your router's settings.

I'm getting an Error code 51030 when I'm trying to make a wifi connection on my wii console


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.

I have perfect internet access but my wii wont let me play my netflix movies. it says unable to find an access point my signal strengh is perfect.error code 51030 i would really like to speak to someone...


Hi There,
Playing a movie over a wifi network not only stresses your router, it's choppy and useless if you've got anything less than a wireless N 300mb/s connection.
However, I looked up your error code and Nintendo seems to think that your router needs to be power cycled, and if that doesn't work, delete your connection settings from your wii and create a new one.
If that doesn't help, I'd recommend upgrading to a linksys N router or using a good old fashioned 10/100mbit cable :)

51030


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!

Error code: 51030 unable to find access point. please confirm the ssid and try again. trying to set up wireless conection.


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 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.
