    I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. Has never let me down. The Wii will find my router fine, but it just refuses to connect...

    Wireless mode is set to Mixed.
    I have the wireless channel set to 11, and I have tried the other channels too.
    Encryption is set to WEP. Have also tried the other encryption options.
    I am using Key #1, not the passphrase, and the key is correct.
    I have also tried it without encryption.
    I have updated the routers' firmware.
    I've hard reset the router.

    All I get is the error message 'Cannot Connect to the Internet. Code 51300'

    If I manually enter the IP addresses etc, I get a different message -
    'Cannot find (or connect to) Access Point. Error 51030'.

    All the computers in the house will connect without problems, as does the Xbox 360. So the router can't be the real problem.

    I really need this to connect, otherwise the thing will never be updated, and I can't downloaded the Sega Genesis games, which would be a tragedy.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

    The Wii console is not able to connect to the access point.

    1. 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. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available).

    2. Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your
    router.

    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/routers/en_na/routerIndex.jsp

    1. Click here to go to the Wireless Router lookup page.
    2. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
    3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
    4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

    3. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
    1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)

    2. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.

    3. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a
    26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.

    4. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).

    5. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
    * WPA - PSK (TKIP)
    * WPA - PSK (AES)
    * WPA2 - PSK (AES)

    4. Check to see if your router is using MAC filtering.
    1. Log into the router using the default IP.
    2. Find the section for MAC Filtering (typically under "Security").
    3. If MAC Filtering is on ("enabled"), enter the Wii console's MAC address to the list of approved MAC address. For info on locating the Wii console's MAC address. (For assistance with locating the MAC Filtering section of your router’s setup tool, please consult the router’s manual or contact the manufacturer.)
