Fix for Wii error codes: 51330, 52030, 32002

To fix these error messages there are a few things you can try:

Set your router to Mixed Mode.
If it is set to G-Only it will not work.

Set the channel on your router to either 1 or 11

Both of these settings can be found in the wireless tab on a standard linksys router.

I found that the error 52030 was invalid WEP key (i typed one the right length but not the valid one)

Teddy said...

I tried all that stuff and it still doesn't work even though I can see my router in the list, it fails every time with 51330 - I even updated firmware etc

dns said...

my computer shows a WPA authentication, but my wii just connected when i used the same key under WEP authentication..

maybe that can help solving some issues out there. weird..

Ceit said...

I changed my internet channel to 11 and I'm still getting the 51330 code. Does anyone know how to fix it?

decipher said...

i can confirm that changing the router to mixed mode works. I had mine set to G only, I switched it to mixed and bamm. I also shortened my wpa key, it was way to long and I kept messing it up.

We tried all of the stuff mentioned here, but what fixed the problem for us was removing the old Game Cube memory cards from the back of the console. Once we pulled them out, it worked fine. Hope that helps someone!

Chris said...

As Jeremy said, I removed the gamecube memory cards and the internet connected fine

I had the same error code despite entering the correct key for my router.

I realised that I needed to tell my router that a new device was attaching. You can add it manually but most routers will find the device and you can just put it on the allow list.

I got cennection but it was so bad that updates progress bar didn't even move. My Wii is like 2 m that's like 2 yards from my AP. Then one of my Wii crazy friends suggested laying it flat as a CD drive as that had helped him... and I did work as a charm ;)

so lay your Wii flat on the table :D
don't use the stand

for 51330

i found that the mac address was blocked, you need to go into the router and allow it. And i couldn't change that b/c my dad is a control freak!!!

dash said...

i was having the 51330 problem so i had to manually put my ip and dns settings and it fixed it. in order to find your dns settings you will need to go to your computer find command prompt and type in

ipconfig

the dns settings will be below. all you have to do is put them in and give your wii an ip address and it will work.

I had the error code 51330. Jeremy was right for me as well once I removed my GC memory cards it worked

Si said...

ive tried all that, but i still get 32002? any ideas?

Teubay said...

disable MAC filtering or add your wii mac address to the whitelist on your router

bonegang said...

If you are manually putting in your IP address, don't forget the DNS settings which are in a separate window... that d'oh gave me 51330

Ravi said...

same weird thing worked for me. i updated my wii from the super smash bros. brawl disc, and since then the internet hadn't worked, i tried everything, but what fixed it was removing the gamecube memory card. screwed up, makes no sense, but it worked for me. thanks for the tip!

Stanton said...

Wow, I can't believe it, but removing the GC memory card fixed the problem. Thanks guys!

For me setting the wireless security mode of my router (Linksys WAG200G) from WPA2-PSK to mixed (i.e. both AES and TKIP) worked. The Wii found the network as always but instead of trying the AES mode it now tried the TKIP mode and it worked like a charm.

Margot said...

LuiqidIce,

I want to thank you for your comment on the error 51330. Thansk to you I got to fix the internet on my boyfriend Wii. He was unable to fix it for over 9 months now. My brother in law spend his evening here thrying to fix it but fail. Thanks to you I was able to show them that i am not a complete idiot. Thank you. For everybody with a belkin router. Clicl on Chanel and SSID and change to first number in 11. With my wii it worked.

DrussRob said...

I had to change TKIP + AES
to only AES.

mark said...

Well there you go - my problem was the Game Cube Memory Card in the top of the Wii.

Pulled it out and restarted - voila

how stupid is that?!

MDR

Christopher said...

I changed my NAT setting to open, and that seemed to work. no more 51330. coincidence? maybe. BUT maybe not.

Tom said...

read all the articles, had tried most of them but put the wii on the flat and voila! it connected

twangy said...

I fixed this by changing the encryption type to WPA2. The Wii didnt detect the correct type so i had to change it manually. So if your having this problem check your encrytion type on your router.

fergus said...

but will changing the router as you said, take away the internet on a compter?

Bobo said...

Ok, seeing this thread comes fairly high in the google search rank I'll tell you what fixed it for me.

What fixed the 51330 error for me was setting the data encryption properly. I had my router set on WPA2 TKIP, but Wii is only compatible to WPA2 AES, so make sure you check that to.
Anyway, after I fixed that I had another error code coming my way - 52030, or something like that. Apparently DHCP didn't work properly on the Wii, so I had to do a manual setup, which really isn't all that hard. There's plenty of guides on how to do that.
Note that I don't have a Came Cube memory card and that my Wii was laying flat on the table from head-start, so I have no idea what whether that could influence the connection.

Oh, another thing: the router is up on the top floor, but the wii is downstairs (two floors difference), but the Wii can still cover the distance.

Anyway, hope that helped.

coolcall said...

im stuck on error 51330 please help how do you change your wii chanel that might help cheers

Linksys 54G errorcode 51330.
After searching all the adjustments and trying endlessly to connect, I found out that my router settings were incorrect. My Linksys WRT54G default settings had to be changed in: WIRELESS->advanced settings->basic rate from default to ALL.
Grtz. Bill.

Justin said...

51330 fixed by cap sensitive

Aled said...

I just cleared all the internet settings on the wii and reconnected to the wireless connection. Error 51330 vanished.

Shawn said...

Got passed the Error 52030 with D-Link DIR 615 router. It was stupid on my part but what happened was I disabled my security previously for a short while, but when I enabled it, my WEP key was randomly created. Since DIR 615 doesn't let you view what the WEP Key currently is, I just re-entered my previous WEP Key (had it saved to a text file) and BIG BAM SURPRISE! it worked. good luck!

Hansel said...

I changed my wpa to accept tkip+aes. that did the trick.

J. V. Pedersen said...

I had to enter the wireless configuration manually into the Wii as the Wii detected WPA when in fact my router was set to WPA2.

Works perfectly now

Simon said...

My Wii worked fine with internet for 3 years. And now suddenly I get the 51330 error :s Tried all the solutions above, nothing works. :(

Marcel said...

Tried everything mentioned here.
- changed the channel from 11 to 1 and back again > nothing
- Changed to WEP, WPA and even no encryption > nothing
- No MAC filtering enabled on my router so that shouldn't be the problem
- my router was set to B/G/N. Tried setting to B/G > nothing
- manualy set all the internet setting in the Wii > nothing.

What finaly did the trick for me was updating the router to the latest firmware version. Encryption back to WPA2(EAS) and using channel 11
