WPA is a very secure method of protecting the connection between your device and the router. I would guess that the DS will only support WEP, which is a much less secure encryption system.

If you want to connect your DS you will need to log on to the router and enable WEP security.

You will then need to enter the password you set in the previous stage in to the DS.

Cannot find the wep key for my nintendo ds on the 2wire router

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

I cant haave internet on my ds lite

Nintendo DS handhelds will not work with WPA wireless encryption, only with WEP, or with unprotected wifi networks (not advised).
Check your router settings to see if they conform with the encryption allowed with the DS.

How can i get wi-fi connection for my nintendo ds

Please see the link here below for a step by step setup.
Please be aware that the Nintendo DS only accept a security key (Password for the WiFi) type WEP. If your router is setup for WPA or newer you will not be able to go online.

Please let me know if you need additional help.

Cant seem to connect to WFC for a dsi game

Hi gabrielsa544,

Welcome to Fixya. Nintendo Dsi/DS/Ds XL connects to the internet using wireless connection. You need to know the settings of your router. I've listed below the steps on how you will access the router and to obtain the information needed for you to be connected.

How to access the Router:

To access the router page just open a browser then type, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab check you Network Name or SSID. On the Security Mode you can check the security if you're using either WEP or WPA. Then you need to remember the Netowrk Key you can also personalize your Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure. Then Save the settings

Take Note of the SSID and the Network Key

Now that we already know the setting of the router then its now time to connect the Dsi to the network.

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reson why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection

Thanks for using Fixya.

Belkin router problems

Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password

Thanks for using Fixya.

When I was trying to set up a Wi-Fi connection to my Nintendo DS, I got a message saying the security settings are supported by the DS, and that I should check Nintendo's support page. I Checked the...

more then likely the wireless router will work with the DS. You'll just need to make sure you enter the settings exactly. You should just be able to put a wpa-psk key in your wireless router and on the DS.
In the computer world just because something isn't supported, doesn't mean it won't work. It just means the manufacturer won't help you make it work.

Try to link my nintendo ds to my wireless router but is says that the access points are not supported by the nintendo ds

sorry but the nintendo ds is based on wep key only. Check your security options is set to wep. Modern routers prefer wpa-psk.

Can i change to wep and back without issues

You can but it would mean you also have to DOWNGRADE your wireless security on the router and also reset the connection for the laptop too.

I have WPA and my sons friend brings his DS and can connect to my system so maybe check your settings a little more.
