The DS wifi is a little different. You need to buy the WiFi DISC, the only wireless that is "free" persay is the "person to person" wireless.

Where do i go to get a wifi conection


To conect to wifi, you'd need to buy a WI-FI USB connecter. They can be found at most video game stores for $37.00 (varies on location) They get plugged into your USB port on your computer, then they enable you to connect to wifi . If you have a Laptop the USB port should be found on the side.

If you just need more information off of what I've given you, read the bottom of my post for a recommended website for Wi-Fi.

When you get a USB connecter:

On your DS:
Once you have it plugged in, turn on your DS with a game that is compatible with Wi-Fi. In the game there should be a place where it allows you to adjust your Wi-Fi settings.
When you select that, two options should appear, tap on the one that is labled "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings" You'll see four options to chose from, you want to tap on the one near the bottom of the screen, it's shown as "Connect To Your Wi-Fi USB Connecter." The next screen will say for you to install your Wi-Fi connecter software to your computer

On your computer:(you must have internet connection on the computer)
Close your DS for now and turn your attention to your computer, insert the USB into the the USB port on your computer. The picture that is next to the port will look like this:

Install the software first, then a window will appear after the installation. Ignore it for now, and look back to your DS.

On your DS:
It should still be on the same screen you left it on unless your battery is dead (not recommended to conect to wi-fi with low power )
Tap "Ok" on your DS, It'll then launch a test connection. Look back at your computer screen now.

On your computer:
The box I told you to leave alone before will still be on, and now it should have your DS name inside it. Your DS name is what you entered your name as on your DS configuration settings.
Click on your DS name and select the option allow access. You can either allow or deny anyone access to connect on wi-fi through your USB.

On your DS:
Now that you have allowed access to your self on the computer, you can get back to your game and tap on "connect to Wi-Fi" this time instead of tapping "test connection." You'll then get a friend code that will allow you to interact with others who have connected with the same game.

Notes: For more about getting started,connected, and swapping friend codes, view this site: http://www.nintendowifi.com/global/AboutWIFI_DS.jsp
Also, if you've ever heard of a Wi-Fi hotspot, that just means you have to take your own computer or laptop with Your own Wi-Fi USB connecter to the certain area for free Internet service. This only means public areas, like at Starbucks or Panera Bread Compay, but then if you're doing this at a friends house then you just need to get your self registered access on their USB.

Trying to hook up wifi what is a wep key were do i look for it


A WEP key is the password to log on to the network, which was created by whoever setup your wireless router. If you do not remember the password you created, let me know and I can walk you through resetting it.

I am trying to hook up to alspark wars on transformers ds but when i try to connect to our Wi-fi connection it asks for my WEP code and i dont know what WEP code is


The WEP code is the code that is used for security on a wireless network. It's like a password. You either need to get the WEP code from the owners of the network, or just find another wifi network altogether.

My son keeps getting an error 5200 on his ds when trying to hook up to wifi


Hello :

1:Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. I highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed.

2:Check your router's broadcast settings to find out if it is set to "G", "B", or "Mixed." Mixed typically works best, but try all three to see if it improves the network connection to the Wii console.

3:Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off. Wireless keyboards and mice may also cause interference.

good luck .

rate please !

Can not hook nintendo to the wifi internet


do you have a wireless router at home? If so you need to disable all protection surounding the router, that means making it unsecured. Go into your router system and turn the WEP, WPA or any other security off. defult password for the router is admin. I would only disable the protection when you plan to go on the wireless.
