If you mean that you are trying to connect to the net with your wireless connection, it will be the router that has WEP security in it and to connect to it you need to enter the WEP passkey to connect, this will be on the side of your router or with the paperwork from your ISP if the router is pre secured.
If it's not your connection, and you don't have a wireless router then you need to dissable your wireless network from searching for a local connection

My nintendo dsi says it needs a WEP password but I dont Know what it is


You will never know a wep password unless you ask the owner of the router what it is. Using a software to know the password of a secured device is illegal. So i suggest you ask the owner what is the wep password of the wifi Or you can search for a place with a free wifi zone.
And when your choosing a connection in your nintendo DSI be sure to choose the connection with this icon. heifentrixx_18.jpg Because this icon means, that connection is shared and free to connect. You wont need any wep key or wep password to enter the connection.

Hope my solution helped. Please give some feedback regarding my solution.
Thank you for using Fixya! Have a Great Day!

http://192.168.0.1/
