Looseness in wheels

Even though both of my wheels are tightened all the way, the wheel itself is loose.
I can slightly move it back and forth from left to right because there is a bit of play.
What can i do to stop this, or is it the wheel itself that's bad?

Tightening the axle nuts has nothing to do with your problem. You need to adjust your cones.

On the inside of the dropouts there will be nuts that you have to tighten. Don't overtighten them because then you're wheel won't spin.
