error code 52100

Hi there! There are a couple options you could try to solve this problem!

To solve this error :

I would first check Nintendo's special notes router infomation page located here.

  • If you can't locate your router on Nintendo's special notes router information page, log into your router and change the basic rate to 1-2 and the transmission rate to 2. Try to connect again.
  • You can try to manually assign an IP address to the Nintendo DS as another device may be sharing the same IP address of the Nintendo DS.
  • To manually assign an IP address to the Nintendo DS, on a PC click Start > Run > type CMD and press Enter > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter. On Windows Vista, click Start > type CMD in the Start Search box > click on CMD icon > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter. The IP address for the Nintendo DS must be 10 digits higher than your PC, for example becomes Also make sure that the correct DNS is the entered under the DS manual settings.
Hopefully one of these options is your answer and you can easily fix your problem! Good luck! If you need any further assistance I would suggest calling Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700.

I can't connect to a wireless internet. I think it's a problem with the driver. The model is a663, Toshiba Satellite. I've download a wi fi driver and intalled it, it worked for a few minutes and then the internet crashed again. Thanks, Bah.

It could be caused by conflicting software, if you have your device software and windows software trying to setup wifi connections.
Check on the task bar for two icons and right click on one of the icons and select disable.

My wifi device actually works better using windows to configure wifi so give them both a try.

If this is not the problem try renewing IP address,

Click Start on task bar,
click the Run... icon
type cmd in the box and click ok
in the cmd box type ipconfig /release
then ipconfig /renew

Wireless adapter has no isp address

First Reset Your IP

Open Start.. choose RUN..type CMD...press Enter..
In the Command Window, Type: ipconfig /release.. Wait for it to finish, then type: ipconfig /renew

note: You Must Put A Space After ipconfig(space)/release...ipconfig(space)/renew........

Then Check Your Network Settings and Uncheck: Automatically Connect To A Network from your wireless settings....

If Still Having Issues... Go To Your Device Manager and Uninstall The WiFi Adapter/Driver... Reboot and Reinstall..

note: If you uninstall the driver, make sure you first went to the acer website and downloaded the wireless driver and saved it somewhere so that upon uninstall and reboot.... you have the driver to reinstall....
