Tip & How-To about Nintendo DSi Black Console

How to connect your Nintendo DSi to the internet

In this guide I will go over the steps you will need to take in order to connect your DSi to the internet. You must first be in range of a wireless access point in order to use it. If you do not have wireless internet at home, you can use local hot spots that do such as coffee shops and school libraries.

-Turn on your DSi and click on the wrench icon which will take you to System Settings.
-Go to page 3 and select "Internet", and click on "Connection Settings"
-Click "None" to the right of "Connection 1"
-Click "Search for an Access Point"

This will bring up any wireless access points within range of your DSi. Any access points that have a gold lock that is unlocked means this access point does not require a security key. If you are going to use a access point that requires a security key, you will need to enter this key in.

-Go back to the "Connection Settings" page and select "Advanced Setup". You will then be prompted for your wireless access point security information. Enter it in here.

Okay. You should be connected and ready to enjoy your DSi. Good luck!

Hi,

In order to get internet access on your DSI you will need to be within range of a wireless router, either at home or at a wireless hot spot like a cofee shop or internet cafe.

-Turn on your DSI and click the wrench icon for system settings.
-Go to the 3rd page and select Internet
-Click Connection Settings
-Click none to the right of Connection 1
-Click Search for an Access Point

This will bring up any available access points within range. Any access point with a gold icon that is unlocked you can access. Any icons that show locked, you will need to enter in a pass key.

how do I get my dsi xl connected to the wi-fi


To connect your DSi to the internet, you'll need access to a wireless network (from a wireless router, for example).

On your DSI you'll want to navigate to System Settings > Internet (it's on page 3) > Connection Settings. Select an empty connection to use (it'll say "None"). Select the "Search for an Access Point" option; it'll show you all available networks in range. Select yours and provide any security key/password if needed.

If this wasn't descriptive enough, Nintendo offers an excellent interactive guides for setting up your Nintendo DSi.

Here is the link to the Automatic Setup process.
If that doesn't work, here's the link to the Manual Setup process.

Hope that helped!

Still have troubles? Nintendo has you covered.

Once you've made a connection, just use the DSi browser and you'll be on the internet.
