This is not an error with Netflix, but rather it is an error with your wireless network set-up. I have seen many people have trouble connecting the Wii to their home networks, and it does not appear to be very user-friendly. Here is the page from Nintendo's official customer support center about your error code and how to fix it.

Error Code: 051030
Unable to connect to your wireless network
Likely cause: Your wireless router may need to be power cycled, or the connection settings have changed.
How to fix: Power cycle your router; redo the connection settings on the Wii and try again.
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddenly stopped? "Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this, unplug both the modem and the router from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router. Try to connect the Wii, Nintendo DS, or Nintendo 3DS online and test for proper response.

  • Erase your old connection settings on the Wii and set up a new one, as your router's settings may have changed since you last connected. We suggest following our guide to create a new connection file and start over. If at the end you still need help, you'll find contact information to reach our specially-trained representatives.

How do you link your Wii with the internet? It keeps saying error code: 051030?


Hi.

Error Code: 051030

The only wireless network within range of your Wii console is not configured or is not compatible with the Wii.

* If you are getting this error after completing a system update, this is usually because the console resets to using the first connection slot after an update. There are two things you can do:

o If you know which connection file you were using before, you can select that connection file, then select "Use this connection" to change that to the default. You will need to do this each time they download an update.

o If you don't know which connection file you are using, or if you would prefer not to update the active connection file each time, try to clear, and then re-create your connection setting in slot one before doing the remaining troubleshooting.

* Check for interference that may be preventing a successful connection. Click here for tips.

* Check to see if the router you are using is a known to be incompatible. Click here to view our list. If your router is known to be incompatible, we recommend using a different router if possible.

* Make sure that the SSID (network name) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings. To verify:
1. Login to your router's settings (click here and select your router, if available, for information).
2. Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
3. After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the manual settings of the Wii console that the SSID appears exactly as listed in the consumer's router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.

* Look up your router, if available, in our list of wireless routers, and check for any special notes that may be necesary to get the connection to work properly.

* The router may not be assigning an IP address to the Wii console, and a connection using the "Manual Settings" may be necessary. Click here for help.

* Your router may require a firmware update to work properly with the Wii console. Firmware updates can usually be found on the router manufactruer's website; consult the manufacturer for more information.

* If the problem persists, try our general troubleshooting steps.


Hope this helps.


Good luck.

I just signed up for netflix and am trying to hook it up to my wii to watch movies. The wii is properly connected and hooked up, and we have a wireless internet connection in my home, however when i go to...


Error code 51030 means you Wii is unable to connect to your wireless network.
Try unplugging your modem and wireless router, then plugging them back in after a couple minutes.
While you're waiting for your modem and router, delete your network setting from your Wii, and set them back up once your router and modem are back up.
Your wireless router's setting might have changed and your Wii might not be able to properly connect.

I am trying to connect to internet with my wii, to use Netflicks, i get a 51420 error code, can you help please


Hi, that error code only occurs when using the wired LAN adapter, so I'll assume you aren't using wireless.
Here are some instructions that I found to set the wired adapter up, hopefully they'll help: ttp://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/getOnline/lansetupwii.jsp

Keep getting error code 051030 unable to connect to server. we have wireless in our home which is working.


051030 is a 'too busy' error, so it's probably an issue with Nintendo's servers rather than your wii.
In this case all you can is try again later.

It can also be caused by interference of other wireless networks in the neighbourhood. If this is the case try changing the WLAN channel of your wii to 11, as most routers default channel is 6, this will give your fequency a bit of seperation from the other wireless connections.

WII error 051030 unable to connect to server


Hi rloster

Error Code: 051030

The only wireless network within range of your wii console is not configured or is not compatible with the wii.

- If you are getting this error after completing a system update, this is usually because the console resets to using the first connection slot after an update. There are two things you can do:

- If you know which connection file you were using before, you can select that connection file, then select "Use this connection" to change that to the default. You will need to do this each time they download an update.

- If you don't know which connection file you are using, or if you would prefer not to update the active connection file each time, try to clear, and then re-create your connection setting in slot one before doing the remaining troubleshooting.
- Make sure that the SSID (Network Name) matches exactly to what you have entered in the wii console's settings. To verify you need to access the router settings page. Listed below are the steps to do it.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remember the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we have the information needed lets connect your Wii to the internet.

Select Wii Settings
Then Internet Connection Settings
Search for an AP or SSID
Input Security Key or Network Key Then Test the Connection

Don't Forget to say Thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.
