It sounds like you are getting error message 51330 in the Wii device. This error message will come on the device when,You are unable to connect to the Internet and you receive the error code 51330. Some time this error code indicates the authentication process between the Wii and wireless router or access point failed. This is often caused by the router refusing a connection because an incorrect security key or security type has been entered into the Wii Internet settings. This may also occur as the result of wireless interference. Could you please tell me what is the distance between the Wii and WiFi modem/router?

In this case can you try Change the security type in the Wii System Settings to WPA2 - PSK (AES) and test your Internet connection again. Please follow the instruction given below.

  1. From the Wii Menu, use the Wii Remote to select the "Wii" button.
  2. Select "Wii Settings" to access the "Wii System Settings" menu.
  3. Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, move over to the second page and select "Internet."
  4. Select "Connection Settings."
  5. Select the connection file you wish to edit and then select "Change Settings."
  6. Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, move over to the second page ("Type of Security").
  7. Select WPA2 - PSK (AES).
  8. Select the white box that appears and then use the onscreen keyboard to enter your wireless network's password ***** select "OK" when complete.
  9. Select "Save," and then "OK" to start a connection test.
  • If the Wii detected the incorrect security type during the initial set-up, simply updating this setting within your existing Internet connection may resolve the issue.
  • If this setting was already pre-selected as WPA2-PSK (AES) try the connection test again, prior to continuing to the next step.
