Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

Does anyone know if you can connect ds to internet using a mobile dongle?

I've recently ditched BT and therefore no longer have a landline, so have switched to a '3' mobile dongle instead of regular broadband. Doesnt work fab in my concrete tower block, but hey ho. I'd rather that than use BT again! Anyway, my problem now is that I'm not sure if I can use my dongle with my ds, and if so can I just plug it straight in to my DS, or do i need another cable? I'd really appreciate some input on this one as I'd love to be able to play over the net (I've not sucessfully managed to use the DS online at all yet, as I had an orange livebox before and that wasnt compatible with my DS either!).

Thanks in advance for your help!

For internet with the ds, u dont plug anything in its all wireless. the '3' dongle gives u wireless internet which is good. to set up internet on your ds, put in a wifi compatible game, and wherever in that game there is an option for NINTENDO WFC CONNECTION (it may change, in mario kart the option is on a main screen, animal crossing talk to ppl) go into that and tap a blank internet connection box and search for an access point. when its found ur 3 internet itll connect. u can now play internet games on ur ds when ur neer that access point. hope i helped

Why can't I connect my DS Lite to my Wifi?


hi Kevin,
The ds lite uses WEP encryption, you will most probably be using wpa/wpa2 which has alot better security but is not compatible with the ds lite. I think the dsi uses wpa and therefore works. I wouldn't recommend changing your current wifi to wep just to get on the internet with the ds lite.
Hope this helps

I have recently bought an EPC netbook, internet problems


3 mobile are correct. You cannot use the USB modem dongle that 3 supply to access the internet. That dongle requires application software to allow internet programs to access the port and so access the modem in the dongle. Windows CE does not allow this access. Find out which modem chip is in the dongle and google the name of the chip, this should lead you to a driver which you can use through CE although you may have to reconfigure the 3 dongle..
