One option is try choosing a different type for your password...i've had the same error before and what i did was to change the password type e.g. from wpa aes-tkip to wpa-aes passphrase (this option will appear during your wii internet connection set-up as you would probably know by now) and everything right after started to fall in place perfectly, just try what password type will work for wii started connecting to my router and never had the same error code ever since.

I have been having the same problem as well with my Wii while trying to connect to my wireless router. I hope to share my experiences with all. Somehow or rather the wii only accepts wireless G bandwidth. If you have encountered any error, please refer to your user manual for the reference. Most of the time, its the inbuilt firewall of the router that is blocking the wii from connecting to the internet. There are some workaround to it.

You may wish to manual config the settings of the internet connection. You will need to acquire a few things from your ISP, 1) the proxy address and port number 2) MRU Number. for MRU number, its a number from 0-1500, this can only be acquired from your ISP. Tell them u need it to configure your third party router. they are more than willing to give it to you. For users that are based in singapore, the mru number for singnet is 1492, using port 8080. hope these helps.

They won't know this error the error is on the wii, if you are using a wireless linksys router then the channel needs to be set to 11, fixed it for me, try changing to various chanles ad make sure it's set to g only, if you use mixed mode it will only work intermitently for some reason, if your using wired adapter I have no advice, i dont own one nor have i used one

I keep getting error code: 51330 when trying to connect wirelessly to the internet.

This was the information on error code 51330 on

Error Code: 51330
Unable to connect to your wireless network

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.

I have an error coming up on my screen for the wii saying unable to connect to the internet error 51330

The error 51330 normally means that the password or WEP key you entered to connect to the internet through the Wii did not match the one the wireless router needs to allow connection.
If you don't know the password, check to bottom of your router, it will usually have a sticker on the bottom with the standard password on it. This can also be marked as WEP key or WPA key. Enter that password exactly as it appears there, as it is case sensitive. If the password is correct and the problem still exists, try turning your router off, waiting 30 seconds to a minute, then turning it back on. Let it set itself up again, this will usually take a minute or two, then try connecting your Wii to the internet again. If the problem continues, try altering your routers wireless channel setting. As most routers work on channel 6 by default, there could be interference. This process is different for each router.

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!

My wii connect 24 won't connect to the internet and it say error code: 51330.

It's a problem with your internet connection. It could be as simple as mis-typing on of the settings, i.e. the SSID. Otherwise try changing this channel your router broadcasts on to 1 or 11. It worked for me. Check out for more details about your router. Or for more details on the error number.
