How to fix Wii error code 51330

If your Wii is showing the error code 51330, there are a few things you can try.

First, you would want to change the Wii settings internet connection to WPA2 - PSK (AES), since perhaps the console detected the wrong type of security when doing the automatic set-up. If the setting was already on WPA2-PSK (AES), try to test it again.


Naturally, you might also want to check you inserted the correct password in your router, along with the Nintendo Wii.

Wii console network settings

Perhaps the problem lies in the Wii console not being compatible with your router. Keep in mind that the Wii supports the 802.11g and 802.11b wireless formats (which might also be called "up to 54Mbps" on some routers). So, if your router supports 802.11n mode only ("Up to 300Mbps"), you will need to change this setting so that the Wii can connect.

Finally, you might want to change your router channel to one which can easily support the Wii's connection. Here's how to do it:

  • Enter your router’s settings (either via cable, app or by connecting to via your browser;
  • Find the wireless channel setting;
  • Change the channel the router is broadcasting its wireless channel to either 1 or 11;
  • Save and reboot the router.
