Wii won't connect to internet - please help

My Wii won't connect to the internet.  (Error code 52230 - unable to connect to server).

I have Comcast internet service, use a netgear wireless router (WGR614v6) and have tried all of the fix-it

suggestions I could find online (including disabling router's firewall, clearing and resetting wii internet settings, etc.)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  PS - not so tech-savvy, so please dumb it down for me.  Thanks

You should try looking at this page, especially #4 which talks about Comcast and #5 which talks about netgear routers.

I had similar error - got it resolved after I setup internal network to 192.168.x.x address range. If you use different internal address on your wireless network - please try to change it.

 

Second option is to setup DNS servers manually in your address settings - try to check what is DNS server on your network and test Wii DNS settings with either (1) your router's IP address, or (2) your comcast DNS address, or (3) google's DNS - 8.8.8.8.

 

 

Last option is to get wired connection - buy for $10 Wii network adapter and for another $8 cat5 cable - you can get 50 ft for less than $10 including shiping on amazon ... but you have to have 192.168.x.x network for wired connection as well - I found it after I bought cable and network adapter.

 

This should help.

I know it's three years later, but I had a similar error myself and solved it a different way.

 

I have a D-Link DIR-615 and within the admin for the router, there's an option to assign DHCP reservations to specific devices.  I added a DHCP reservation for my Wii and it cleared everything right up.  It's the equivalent of assigning the Wii a static IP, but on the router end.

Re: Wii won't connect to internet - please help

i was having the same problem with my wii and the internet access code.

i was frustraited that i have had my wii connected to the same router for the past 5 going on 6 years now and it has never done this.

 

the internet connection test wouldnt even run on it.

 

i had to go into settings and clear the whole internet connection settig that i had.

then i had to go through and add the wifi server again.

next i had to re-type in the passcode if there is one for your network.

then i was finally able to run the connection test.

 

you might have to do that if it's still not working like i did

Please do not bump old threads.

 

 

In addition, most of the online features of the Wii ( and Nintendo DS ) have been discontinued.
