I have Asus wireless router set up at home. Using wireless with two laptops fine.

Yesterday, I tried connect Wii wireless in order to watch Netflix, I kept getting error code 51330 on the Wii "Unable to connect to internet".

The Wii system is 5ft away from router.

Any helps.

Is your network secured? Perhaps you need to input the security key into the wireless settings in the Wii.

What type of wireless network is it? B? G? N? I think the Wii works with B and G, not sure about N.

Also, the Wii can be sensitive to interference. Switching the router to a different channel may help.

Yep- Wii and 802.11N are a no go. You didn't mention the model number, but if your Asus is an N, just swap it to b/g mode and you should be able to see the network from your Wii.

All else fails, I smell a Monoprice order coming on!

+1 for switching the channel on router. Try 1,6 or 11.

My Wii constantly disconnects from asus rt n66u router.  Tried everything.  Wii and asus rt n66u router are not compatible.  Asus rt n66u broadcasts poor b/g signals. Tried everything.  Wii and asus routers have compatibility problems.
