  • IP Address: Enter the IP address of your router.
  • Subnet Mask: Enter the subnet mask of your router.
  • Default Gateway: Enter the IP address of your router’s default gateway.

  3. Click the OK button.

2. Change the channel that your router is broadcasting on

Step 1: Open your router's admin page. Step 2: Navigate to the "Wireless" tab. Step 3: Click on the "Channel" tab. Step 4: Select the desired channel from the list. Step 5: Click on the "Change" button. Step 6: Enter the desired channel number. Step 7: Click on the "Apply" button.

3. Move your router closer to your Wii console

  1. Power off the Wii console and router.
  2. Unplug the power cable from the Wii console and router.
  3. Remove the screws that hold the router in place.
  4. Slide the router closer to the Wii console.
  5. Reattach the screws that hold the router in place.
  6. Plug the power cable from the router into the power outlet on the Wii console.

4. Check to see if the MAC Filtering feature on your router is enabled

  1. Open your router's administrative interface.
  2. Under the Networking and Security section, locate the MAC Filtering feature and check the status.
  3. If the feature is enabled, you'll see a green check mark next to it. Otherwise, the feature will be disabled and you'll see a red X next to it.
  4. If the feature is enabled, you'll also see a list of all the devices that are currently being filtered. If the device is not listed, it likely means that the device isn't on the router's network and can't be filtered.
  5. If the feature is enabled, you'll also need to input the IP addresses of the devices that you want to filter. You can either type in the IP addresses manually or use the router's address lookup feature.
  6. Once you've entered the IP addresses of the devices you want to filter, press the enter key.
  7. The router will then start filtering the traffic of the devices listed in the MAC Filtering section. If any of the devices in the list stops working because of the MAC filtering, you'll see an error code of 52230 and a message indicating that the MAC filtering feature on the router is not working.

5. Try manually assigning an IP address to your Wii console

  1. Ensure your Wii console is powered on and connected to the Internet.

  4. Select your Wii console from the list of devices.
  5. Enter the IP address of your Wii console into the IP Address field.
  6. Click the CONNECT button.
  7. If the IP address is correct, the Wii console will reboot. If the IP address is not correct, the Wii console will display an error message and will not reboot.
  8. Repeat the steps above to enter the IP address of a different Wii console.
