It may be because the settings entered into the Nintendo DS are not compatible, or the router's broadcast settings should be changed.

Try creating a new connection with your system.


Hope it helps!

Nintendo WFC is only compatible with the WEP security setting, even when playing with a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL. WPA and other security settings are not compatible.
solution: You will need to either change your security settings on your router to "WEP" (recommended), or disable all security.

I have pokemon white version & it says we do not have wifi connection when we do have it at our house. What do we need to do to make it work?


The DS Lite does in fact connect to wi-fi via a router. For example you can have a Wi-Fi battle with any random person around the world if you have wireless internet in your house on Pokemon Black or White. My thought would be that your router has an encryption type that your DS does not support. The same thing happened to me. You can first try to go to the main menu of your Pokemon game and click on the Nintendo WFC Settings. Through here try and connect to your router by entering the password you have set for your router. If this still doesn't work try taking the password off of your router via your computer and see if you can connect then. Lites will only connect to certain types of encryption passwords. I use WEP and it works fine.

I'm trying to connect to my wifi in my house on my nintendo ds but every time I try it says the access points security settings are not supported for nintendo ds, what should I do?


The security settings on your wireless network's router aren't compatible with the DS. You can change the settings, but then you will have to adjust it for all other devices that use your wireless network. Here is a link to Nintendo's customer service site describing the issue in more detail.

I'm currently trying to connect my DS Lite to my home network. The router I'm trying to connect it to is a MAC router, and when I search for an access point, my DS does pick up that my router is there-...


The DS does not support the WPA encryption scheme; which is the only secure encryption scheme available. You could temporarily degrade the security in the router's admin page to WEP, though I would recommend you use public wifi when you have to, and keep yours secure.

All it says is the access points securty is not supported by the nintendo ds


this means you are using a newer form of wifi security
  • Note: WEP Security is the only option for multiplayer gaming on any of the Nintendo DS systems.
    WEP - If you wish to secure your wireless network, the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite are only compatible with WEP (Wired Encryption Protocol).
    WPA - The Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, and Wii are compatible with both WEP and WPA security.

  • Known Compatibility Issues - Most wireless routers are compatible with the Wii console and Nintendo DS systems. However, our experience has shown the following devices may be incompatible:

ensure that your wireless router is not using wpa protection. If it is go into your router and change the wpa security to wep and you will have no problem connection.

We have wifi in our house and i cant seem to connect with my ds. what do i need to do?


Verify that you have the two items needed to connect your DS: a WiFi compatible DS game and a wireless router with WEP or less encryption. Sometimes the DS has trouble with more advanced router security.
Insert a WiFi compatible game into the Nintendo DS and access the wireless network options screen. Each game does this a little differently so check your manual if you have trouble finding it.
Use the options interface to set up a new wireless connection. Choose "Nintendo WiFi Connection Settings," then your first unused connection preset, then "Search for a Wireless Access Point." If everything is set up properly you should be able to find one and connect.
Look at the color of the padlock next to your connection name. Blue means you are ready to go, red means you need to supply a password to connect (common with most home routers) and gray means your router is using security that the DS doesn't understand.

You can only contact people if they are within 10 metres of you on pictochat , but if you have a wireless router i think you can speak 2 people around the world.
