Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a network security standard that allow users to easily secure a wireless home network, and connect wireless client devices (iPad's etc.) to it, without accessing the router's configuration screens, and without even knowing the wireless network's security. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
We browse the internet and have far fetching concerns of how secure our connection is, especially when its wireless. Here are a few pointers:
The security concerns with wireless network centre around :
The authentication component (pre-shared keys) of schemes such as WPA and WEP, as well as MAC address filtering, address the issue of restricting access to the wireless network to only authorized devices.
Encryption address the issue of protecting against eavesdropping on the wireless network traffic.
If you turn off WPA (or similar scheme), you are turning off an access control method as well as an encryption method. The wireless network traffic can then be easily eavesdropped on, and the MAC addresses and IP addresses of participating machines can be determined. These can then be spoofed, and the wireless network joined.
Turn back on WPA/WPA2. Other way to prevent unauthorized network access are 1. Password-protect your wireless connection. Turn on WEP (wired equivalency privacy) or WPA (Wi-Fi protected access) on all of your devices, including your router, your media center. You may also set up a security key for your wireless network. 2. Place the wireless access point away from windows and near the center of your house to decrease the signal strength outside of the intended coverage area. 3. Keep all software current (including your Web browser) with automatic updates. Use firewall, antivirus, antispam, and antispyware software from a source that you trust and watch out for fake alerts for security software.
What error do you get when connecting to the internet?
Anyways, Probably the Wireless connection your trying to connect to has a Network Security enabled on it.
Gaming consoles cant' access that type of Encryption, reason I do not know why but to be able to get wireless connection using your Nintendo DS you will need to disable the Wireless Network Security of your Wireless Router to be able to get Wireless Access using your Nintendo DS.
I also had issues with mine before and found out that disabling the Network Security will let me get Internet Access on my portable console.
Just Disable the Network Security this will allow you to get Internet Access on your Nintendo, for the Security of your Wireless you can get the MAC Address of each wireless device you have and input those MAC Addresses into the Router Settings to get Security and not allow other poeplt to gain access on your Wireless Internet.
I hope this Helps.
Have a nice day,
1. Open a Web Browser 2. In the address bar type the IP address of your access point. Note: By default the IP address is 192.168.2.254 3. Click on Security in the left hand column under Wireless 4. Enter your password if any and click Submit 5. Select WPA-PSK (no server) from the Security Mode section 6. Enter your Pre-shared Key Note: You can mask your Pre-shared Key by selecting Obscure PSK 7. Click on Apply Changes
Network adapter configuration
1. Go to Start and click on Control Panel. 2. Control Panel window will appear. Double click on Network Connections. 3. Network Connections window will appear. Right click correct Wireless Network Connection by identifying correct wireless network adapter and click View Available Wireless Networks. 4. Wireless Network Connection window will appear. Select the network you wish to connect and click Connect. 5. The should now be security-enabled. 6. Enter the WPA-PSK network key you set up in the router as above. 7. If all goes well, you will connect to wireless network at last.
A manual for the router can be found here Instructions for setting up a secure wireless network can be found on page 27 - under Customising Security Settings.
Make sure you use the "custom encryption key" option, and specify you're own passphrase
I would suggest using WPA-PSK authentication (if possible), as it is more secure
Hope this helps
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
In Control Panel, go to network, find the router icon, right mouse click on it and open device webpage In security settings, go to wireless and set wireless security using a WEP pr WPA key chosen by you that you will remember ( I suggest 128bit encryption), save and that should be it. Make sure you record the passkey as tou will need to install it on all your wireless decvices
Yes you can connect wirelessly to the internet with your ps3.

You may need to open
firewall port numberson your router to connect to the Internet.
The PlayStation 3 will not connect to the Internet through the USB ports.
You will need to know the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Also make sure the WAP or wireless router is set to
broadcast the SSID; otherwise, the SSID will NOT appear on the
PlayStation 3 scan results.
If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.
WEP or WPA Security Key
If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted)
from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent
Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.
You may need to enter the Media Access Control address (MAC
