      Connecting a Nintendo Wii to the internet



      I'm stumped by my Wii. It will recognise the SKY wireless network but fails at the connection test.

      I'm not a beginner with routers and networks and I understand all the normal terms and settings.

      I followed the normal instructions:
      Wii options (round button bottom left)
      Wii settings , Click Right to go to screen 2
      internet
      connection settings
      connection
      wireless
      manual setup

      I inputted my SSID, added authentication type (WPA-PSK) and key and left the other settings on auto on my first attempt. This didn't work so I got all the correct settings and inputted them all manually, double checking them twice! Still no connection.

      I get a 52130 error which means the firewall is blocking. I've not managed to find very much on the web about this particular problem. I did find a vague post somewhere about port forwarding but I couldn't find enough detail to be able to attempt changing these settings.

      Can anyone shed any light on this particular error?

      Many thanks,
      Alison

      Re: Connecting a Nintendo Wii to the internet

      If it is a case of needing to forward a port for the wii then you will need to determine which port ( sorry cant help with this bit as I havnt got one )
      When you have the port number click on services in router settings, then add custom service and enter the details and apply.
      Then you need to click on firewall rules and add the service youve just created to both inbound and outbound with action of allow allways, click apply and that should be it
      Hope this helps

      Thanks, I thought I'd have to do that. But where to find the port number(s)? There don't seem to be any published or any generic numbers that could work

      Re: Connecting a Nintendo Wii to the internet

      Are you running a software firewall as well ?
      Is upnp turned on ? This avoids the need to port forward in some cases.
      I've just had a word with a friend who has a wii and he did not have to port forward - just setup the router with the routers wireless settings

      Re: Connecting a Nintendo Wii to the internet

      Hi, no I don't have a software firewall and UPnP is already turned on. I've also made sure that the MAC code of the Wii is a specifically allowed device on my network.

      If I just input the SSID and PSK and leave everything else auto then the error code I get changed to 51330

      The signal is not very strong where the Wii is located (wireless range extender should be delivered next week). Could that cause these types of problems?

      ArrrgH!

      Re: Connecting a Nintendo Wii to the internet

      There are some top tips for this error here Wii Error 51300-51399

      Others report that whilst the chipset in the Wii is theoretically Wirelss G capable, the driver doesn't support Wireless G so your router needs to be set to wireless B or Mixed B/G mode. They also recommend using channel 1 or 11 although I can't think why

      Re: Connecting a Nintendo Wii to the internet

      Thanks for the ideas. The router is already g & b and I've already switched the channel from 11 to 1. Still no joy. <sigh>

      Re: Connecting a Nintendo Wii to the internet

      This is probably a stupid suggestion, but are you sure that its your router that you are trying to connect to?
      When i set up my Wii, it was picking up 4/5 other Sky routers.
      Can't be any more help but it connected without difficulty.

      Re: Connecting a Nintendo Wii to the internet

      Thanks Penrhyn, it's always worth checking the obvious things first! I've actually changed the SSID so I'm sure it's my network and it's the only one it's picking up anyway. Thanks for the suggestion though, I really hoping it might just be a simple oversight!

      Talking I found the problem

      Thanks to all who offered solutions. I've got it connected now.

      I knew the signal was weak (I've already ordered a range extender) so I just thought I'd bring the Wii into the same room as the Sky router to see if that was a cause of the problems and it's now working fine.

      Hopefully this might help someone else in future!

      Cheers,
      Alison
