    I, along with numberous others, are getting Error Code: 51330 or 51331 when trying to test a new wireless connection. I can connect to another wireless router in the area thats not secured, but not mine! Anyone able to figure this out?

    Nope, not on this end either. Buggin' the heck out of me so far...

    Alrighty, all I did was reset the router, and now it's connected and updating. (of course, this is after previously setting up the router to allow the Wii's MAC addy and configure the security for both.) All systems go, best of luck everyone!

    But I can get online with other peoples routers, so it cant be the Wii. Im thinking it may be one of the router settings. Frustrating

    I was getting error code 51330 and what worked for me was to set my Wii to use a static IP address instead of DHCP. I just used an IP that wasn't being used on my network, added the subnet mask and gateway and DNS's and tested the connection and it worked and is now updating, however the update is crawling so slowly and at this rate it looks like it's going to finish sometime this century ;) I have a feeling it's because soooo many people just got thier wii today and are all hammering nintendo's update server at the same time causing it to bog down. It probably won't be this slow after a few days/weeks.

    well mine finally worked and it was 3/4 of the way done with the update and then it gave me the stupid message saying i cant update due to internet connection problems again! it doesnt even save your progress on the download, you have to start over again!

    Hello everyone this is my first post so greetings.

    I am not that very techy so bluraven or anyone else, if you could elaborate more please.
    FYI, I got the same error, tried manually but then got error 52130. I can't look up this code on the nintendo website so I don't know what it means (same goes for the 51330 error).

    I use Linksys.
    I think I found an unuse IP address but it was under the heading local network, not router.

    I found 2 different subnet mask (again one under the local network header the other under router)

    is default router the same as default gateway?

    is Primary and Secondary DNS the same as DNS 1 and 2?

    thank you everyone

    Finally fixed my problem :D was going to post but I was busy finding the problem :D

    I got the same error and all i had to do was allow my router to accept the Wii's mac address (via the system information). Type it in the filter thingy or allow it and w00t! Tried the connection on the Wii, then Boom! Wii shoppping channel! Have you tried the Mac address thingy?

    ive got error 51330 also. ive tryed EVERYTHING. i changed the WEP, tryed diffrent securaty, put the MAC address in the trusted list, turned MAC filtering off, manuel connect, turbo mode (not sure what it does but it has the word turbo lol) turning the securaty compleatly off and nothing. it wont work at all. it finds the router and accepts the WEP key when i type it in but it wont connect to the net. so frusterating!

    I was going to try that! I just couldnt figure out the IP address of the Wii. the MAC address is listed in console info, but not the IP. Where can I find it??

    What I mean is, on the Wii in the settings for connection, It has settings for "Other/advanced settings" and it will let you enter numbers for IP address, Gateway, and Subnet mask. I will give you an example of my own router. I use a Dlink router. On one of my home computers that runs windows XP, I go to start -> run -> and type in "cmd" and click ok, I then get the black dos prompt. I type in on that prompt "ipconfig" and I see that my home pc has an IP address of 192.168.0.103 a gateway of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. All of the devices on my home wireless network will be using Ip's that start at 192.168.0.101 and go up from there. I have lets say 4 devices that use my wireless network. So to be safe, I will use a number higher then 4 I will use 11. So My Wii's IP I set to 192.168.0.111 so that it will be higher then all the other device's on my network so it will not conflict with them. I keep the subnet mask the same as 255.255.255.0, and for the gateway (the wii menu calls it router address I think, router, gateway, samething) I put in 192.168.0.1 and then for DNS I put 192.168.0.1 because I want my router to handle the DNS requests. You can also do an "ipconfig /all" on your computer to see your DNS servers there and use those, or you can call your ISP (internet service provider) and ask what DNS servers you should be using. I'm not sure if this is working for everyone with error 51330 but it is what has worked for me so I thought I'd share it. Also I saw that there was a tip from the forum admin about the slow updating once connected on the Wii and that it may be due to other wireless routers near your home from maybe your neighbors using the same wireless channel that your router is using. The default channel is supposedly 6 and lo and behold my router is set to 6 also. So when I get home (im at work right now and I am wanting to play my wii so bad atm, lol) I am going to try changing the channel of my router too. I hope it helps, because the waiting for two hours for the updates and the wii shop channel I can't even get into really frustrates me lol.

    Thank you Bluraven!!!!! :thumbsup:

    it took me a while to still get connected. A problem I had was for the security part WAP, WEP etc,.... A tip for others you have to log on and pull up you router info. Go to for Linksys users, go to the wireless tab and then wireless security. You can figure out your security and the code key you need. You do have to enter it which i didn't know.

    during my process i did have 2 error codes show up 51330 and 52130. I had problems enter the code in to find out what they mean. The go button didn't work and if i pressed enter instead it would just refresh the page. So i went to the top of the screen and did a search withing the Nintendo website, but change where to look to from "games" to "customer service". For a shortcut

    51330: | Nintendo - Customer Service | Wii | Error Codes 51300-51399

    52130: | Nintendo - Customer Service | Wii | Error Codes 52100-52199

    i got a little frustrated at first but after reading bleraven's post and going to the nintendo site i got it connected.

    thanks again

    I just got mine working after getting the 51330 error. I have a netgear router. I connected my router via wire to the computer (it did not work if I had it wirelessly connected). Then open up internet explorer (for some reason firefox would not work).
    I then typed in "www.routerlogin.net" . This connects you to your router settings.
    Type in "admin" for your username
    Type in "password" for your password
    I then go into the wireless settings and changed wireless network mode from "g only" to "g and b"
    On the very bottom of the page hit "apply" and this fixed the problems for me.

    Good luck to everyone else.
