You need to make sure your router is capable of transmitting at the Wireless G frequency and use a WEP encryption on your key or no Encryption however I reccomend WEP Encryption.

Ds lite wi fi connect wpa


Try changing your WiFi encription to WEP or no security, this should be available on your cablemodem/router web internface (need a user and password for that) under the Wireless/Security option.

DS Lite is not compatible with any other WiFi encription for online gaming: "Important note about the Nintendo DSi and WPA security: While the Nintendo DSi is compatible with WPA security, Nintendo DS games with online play still require the use of WEP or no security to connect with the Nintendo WFC. Therefore, your connection settings for using these games must be set up on slots 1-3. If you need more details on using your adjusting your router's settings,click here and select your router (if available).

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!

How do you get the internet on this my says no compatible access point in range check your connection setting under internet opion and try again error code 051099


Unable to use your wireless signal
Likely cause: It appears that the settings entered into the Nintendo DS are not compatible, or the router's broadcast settings should be changed.
How to fix: Try creating a new connection with your system. Nintendo DSi owners trying to play multiplayer games will want to be sure to read the "Trying to play online multiplayer with Nintendo DSi."

  1. Create a new connection: This error can occur if a setting (like your network's name) has changed since you last connected. If it's been awhile since you connected, or if this is your first time connecting, creating a new connection file will often resolve this error code. Click the button below for your system and we'll walk you through the connection step-by-step.

Trying to play online multiplayer with Nintendo DSi
Even if you are able to connect online and use other online features of the Nintendo DSi, if you are attempting to play multiplayer games but are receiving error code 51099 when you try and connect, then your router is likely using a security type - WPA - that is not compatible with Nintendo DS Game Cards.
Try this:
If you are sure you are using WPA, click here for more information including alternative connection methods. If you're not sure if you're using WPA, you can find out by going into the connection settings on your Nintendo DSi and doing a search for an access point. Follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and access the System Settings by clicking on the wrench icon

mr_fix3er_0.png 2- Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."

mr_fix3er_1.png 3-Now choose "Connection Settings."

mr_fix3er_2.png4-Click on "None" for "Connection 1."
mr_fix3er_3.png 5-Click on "Search for an Access Point."

mr_fix3er_4.png 6-The Nintendo DSi will search for any wireless networks within range. Once it is finished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks it finds. Look for your wireless network.

7-What to do next will depend on the "lock" icon you see next to your network on the Nintendo DSi.


mr_fix3er_5.png No security - This connection type is compatible with Nintendo DS Game Card online multiplayer.

mr_fix3er_6.pngWEP - This connection type is compatible with Nintendo DS Game Card online multiplayer.

mr_fix3er_7.pngWPA - This connection type is not compatible with Nintendo DS Game Card online multiplayer. Security will need to be changed to WEP or turned off in order to play online. Click here for more info.

  • Other suggestions :
  • Make sure your router is set to broadcast in "b" or "mixed" mode. If your wireless router is transmitting in "N" only mode, you will need to switch it to "b/g" or "mixed" mode. For help accessing your router's settings, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). Most routers will have this setting in the "broadcast settings" menu.
    • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Nintendo DS. To help minimize wireless interference, try the following:
      • Make sure other wireless devices such as cordless phones or wireless speakers are turned off, and that the Nintendo DS is an open area without objects or electronics blocking the signal.
      • Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is found in the "Broadcast Channel:" area.

    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.

    Internet access on the nintendo DSI is saying no compatible access point in range check your connection settings under the internet option and try again error code 051099 we dont know the ssid code to...


    The nintendo dsi needs a wireless router transmitting in MIXED mode, meaning that it transmits using B mode as well as G or for newer routers N mode. If it is setup to transmit in G or N only, then the DSI will not detect it.

    Also, the DSI is not compatible with WPA security. You need to set up a weaker WEP security code or turn off wifi security altogether.

    Also, make sure the router is broadcasting the SSID name which is the name of the wireless router.

    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.
