11.) click "OK"
12.) click on an access point with a lock that's unlocked, or click on one with a yellow lock and put a password. if you see a red lock, you cannot connect to that access point.

This may go beyond the factory settings, (completely renewed). Goto the wii options menu and click wii settings, and go all the way to the end and click format wii system memory, and read the description to make sure you want to do this and then click format if you want to restart or go back. Note: this is the only icon on wii settings menu that illuminates yellow while the others illuminate blue.

That's because you need a modchip inside your Wii, like Wiikey...
So you can play any Wii Game (Japan, PAL, US Games) or burned Wii Games...

The wii will not connect to Netflix?


Go to the Wii Shop Channel, and you should find Netflix there as a free item. "Buy" it, and then you'll have Netflix on the Wii.

Wait, is your Wii connected to a Wi-Fi (wireless network) connection in your home? That's step one:

Connect wii to netflix account


Hi Delores, yor image shows an iPhone; however, you must connect to your Netflix account with you Wii console.

Do you have wireless internet connection for your Wii? Do you have an established Netflix account? If so, then to download Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii you must go to the Wii Shop Channel.

  1. Select the Wii Shop Channel on the Wii Menu and select "Start."

  2. If you haven't already been to the Wii Shop Channel, you will need to read and agree to the User Agreement.
  3. A screen will appear asking you if you want to link a Club Nintendo account to your Wii Shop account.
    • If you have a Club Nintendo Membership, enter your User Name and Password, then select "Link."
    • If you do not have a Club Nintendo Membership, leave the fields blank and select "Skip."
  4. Select "Start Shopping" to continue to the Wii Shop Channel main menu.
  5. Select "Wii Channels" from the Wii Shop Channel main menu, then select "Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii." Select "Free 0 Wii Points."
  6. Select either the "Wii System Memory" or an "SD Card" as the download location. I'd suggest System Memory for Netflix.
  7. Select "OK," then "Yes" to download the channel.
  8. A screen will appear with Mario running across the screen and three blocks. Mario will hit the blocks as the download progresses.
  9. Once Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii has finished downloading, it will appear on the Wii menu.

Open Netflix, login to your existing account, and there you are!

Im trying to download net flix on my wii and im getting the error code 52031...what does that mean?


Error 52031: It's possible that the wireless security pass code for your home network may have been changed or is entered incorrectly on the Wii console.

However if you're using Wi-Fi to connect to the internet, your ISP may be blocking the ports allowing you to use netflix from your WII. You may need to contact you ISP in order to verify this problem.

I downloaded netflix on my computer became a member then downloaded it on my wii and did all the steps, code and everything, but it will not let me connect to it! HELP!!!


First setting to check is does your wi-fi allow Netflix. If that is all good. Then make sure you have every ounce of info right for the wii. It usually requires both the wii and computer to be on at the same time to verify it. For example when you sign into netflix on the wii it will give you a code to input on the computer. When that is done you will then have access to the netflix on the wii. Hope this helps :)
