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.

How to set up wifi

With an online-capable game insertedinto your Nintendo DS, turn on your system and access the game's main menu. Access the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection settings.(These settings are typically found by selecting "Nintendo WFC" fromthe game's main menu. For detailed directions, consult the manual for thegame.) At the Setup screen, tap"Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings." Tap "Connection 1 None." Clickon "Search for an Access Point." TheNintendo DS will search for any wireless networks within range. Once it isfinished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks itfinds. Look for your wireless network. What to do next will depend on the"lock" icon you see next to your network on the Nintendo DS. If thelock icon that appears is unlocked and blue, Select "OK," "SaveSettings," and then "Yes." The Nintendo DS will run a connectiontest with your wireless router. The connection test was successful - YourNintendo DS is now connected online and you can enjoy the Nintendo Wi-FiConnection features of the game! The connection test was not successful - Ifthe test was not successful, you will receive an error code. Error Code 51300: This means the security codeor network name entered into the Nintendo DS is not the same one the router isset to. To reach your connection settings, click "back" on the errorcode screen. Make sure to pay extra attention to the security key you find inyour router's settings and enter it exactly as it appears (the key is casesensitive). For all other error codes, go to the Nintendo website or contactcustomer support. If the lock icon is locked and red, Enter your router's WEP keyinto the Nintendo DS Select"OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." TheNintendo DS will run a connection test with your wireless router. Theconnection test was successful - Your Nintendo DS is now connected online andyou can enjoy the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection features of the game! Theconnection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you willreceive an error code. If the lock icon is locked and grey, and you wouldstill like to connect your Nintendo DS online, you will need to either changeyour router's security to WEP, or disable security entirely. Please note thatany changes you make will affect other devices that connect wirelessly to yourrouter.

I can't get the wifi on nintendo wifi match.

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:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and theNetwork Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remeber the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

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.

Hello i have a regular nintendo ds and i have been trying to get my mystery gift on pokemon platinum ihave a netgear wireless router to

Some routers do not support the nintendo ds. there is a list of routers that do support the ds on in their customer support area.
if your router does not support the nintendo ds, i recommend that you get a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connector. It plugs right into your computer and gives you wifi for ds and wii. the computer has to be on though.
-Hope this Helps :)

It wont connect to my internt it says that its security setting are not supported by the nitendo ds and then tells me to go here for help game: club penguin

-Taken from Nintendo Support-

My security settings are not supported or are not compatible
If your network name (SSID) is displayed on the Nintendo DS with a gray locked icon (pictured below), then your router is set up with security that is not supported by the Nintendo WFC. Playing multiplayer over the Nintendo WFC is only compatible with the WEP security setting, even when playing with a Nintendo DSi. WPA and other security settings are not compatible. yourssid.gif Solution:
You will need to either change your security settings on your router to "WEP" (recommended), or disable all security. For information on changing the security settings of your router, click here.

Cant get wifi on my ds even with WEP key

The DS doesn't have the best WiFi signal.

Make sure you are close to your router for one.

Also check the WEP key as it may say the AP (access point) isn't there if the WEP is wrong.

Also some routers won't connect properly to the DS unless the IP,Gateway, and DNS are set manually.

If you choose to set the AP info manualy then you need to find the you AP's IP address.
Commonly this would be however it varies from one brand to another or may be changed manualy.
Try these settins with the corrected IP adress number as the gateway.

IP Adress (this is you'r DS IP adress. The 3rd digit should be the same as you gatway's 3rd digit. The fourth digit can be any number that isn't used on your network.

Subnet mask


(Usually I set the Gateway and DNS numbers the same and it usually works. The Gateway is the IP address of your wifi router.)

If this fails and all numbers are correct, then it may be that the WiFi router will not work with the DS as some brands simply refuse to work with it for unkown reasons.

Anohter solution is to get a WiFi USB dongle and connect to that.

I dunno what a WEP is and i can get no connection to wifi but i got connection 1,2 and 3.Ive been stuck for 1 hour tryin to solve this puzzle or whatever it is....THIS is for pokemon diamond on DS light.

when you setup your wifi connection ie your wireless router in the wireless menu for your router it will have a WEP key that you assign or it could be automatically created so first you need to adjust your wireless routers settings and find the wep key in there if you have the model number of the router you have then I may be able to help you further. but this is where you need to start to look around.
