We are trying to connect our wireless and are having problems first of all we do not know what wlan security setting to put in and then we have know idea what a wpa key is?


All the settings are in your router configuration. Whens etting up your router it will have a wireless setup section, in this section you set the security type;
WEP - (64bit or 128bit) - Wired Equivelant Privacy
WPA - (64bit or 128bit) - Wi-Fi Protected Access

WEP- 64 bit is 10 character numeric key and 128 bit is 20 digit numeric key (eg, 1234567890) WPA- 64 bit and 128bit are a passphrase comprised of anything numeric, symbols or letters (eg, 8taq*1%9)
You set your own WEP or WPA security keys and the best way to do so is to enter into your routers configuration. To do so do one of the following to find the gateway ip address;

Windows XP:
Click Start
Click Run
Type "cmd" without the qoutations and hit enter
A black screen will appear and in there type in "ipconfig" no quotations and hit enter
it will show up looking something like this:
Gateway IP........................192.168.1.1 (Example)
Write down the Gateway Ip Address
Open a browser from a computer connected hardwire into the router and type in that ip address into the browser bar and it will take you to the router configuration page.

Windows 7:
Click start
in the search field type "command" no quotations and hit enter
A black screen will appear and in there type in "ipconfig" no quotations and hit enter
it will show up looking something like this:
Gateway IP........................192.168.1.1 (Example)
Write down the Gateway Ip Address
Open a browser from a computer connected hardwire into the router and type in that ip address into the browser bar and it will take you to the router configuration page.Without knowing what kind of router you have though I cannot help any further as all router setup pages are different.

If you can give me more information on your router I can guide you to a page that will show you how to setup wireless on your specific router. I hope I have been helpful and feel free to comment for further information.

My acess poin is not supported by the nintendo ds


Hi rodneyde,
f you're receiving that error message we need to access the Wireless Settings Page of your Router to change some settings. Keep in mind that if we change the settings of your wireless connection other machine that is connected to the network will be disconnected due to the new settings, so take note of the settings that we will be changing.

To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Settings Page try changing the encryprion to WEP 64bit and generate aNetwork Key. Remember the network key so that if you have laptops that are connected and will lose the connection that is the password that you need to input. If WEP 64bit wont work try WEP 128bit orWPA you can also disable the Security however you network can be access by others.

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. If you have questions put a comment here.

Rate me if this helps so I can hep others. Thanks for using Fixya.

I can get into the GUI of the router so I have the correct password. However after I have set up the WEP encryption it then asks me the password again and will not accept what I put in.


Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

you can't put just anything into the password field, depending on if the password is set to HEX or ACII you have a certain amount of letters or numbers that you must enter, and if it is hex you are limited to 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 A B C D E F.

64bit key is around 5 ACII (normal letters) Or 10 Hex digits
128bit key is around 13 ACII or 26 Hex digits

2 hex digits = 1 ACII letter.

And so on. Generate a high security key for the lenght that you want from

Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.
Thanks,

Whenever i connect via wifi, it always says "authentication failed"


Yeah, they confirmed that they have some problem on some wifi authentication especially when your AP is configured to WPA-PSK (TKIP or AES).

you can only connect wifi with open, shared, WEP 64 and 128bit authentication and WPA/WPA2. Samsung still dont have any solution to this big issue. Been a lot lately to customer service in plaza sing, talked to the manager a lot with this problem,
still NO SOLUTION. You can't even have a full refund, no change model.

Securing my wifi network


Hi George,

Simply open your Internet browser, in the address line, inset 192.168.0.1, then:
-> Goto TOOLS

Here you set the administrator password, note that you have to set the same password twice.

Do set some security as well, other vice your neighbor will use your network, - and that you don’t want, as you don’t know what and where he go on the internet.

On page 27 in your manual, you find the way to set the wireless settings.

On page 37 in your manual, you find a way to set MAC address settings. Thise settings allow only those MAC addresses as you put in the table.
You find your own MAC address like this:
->Start->run->write cmd and hit enter; a black DOS window open, write ipconfig /all (note the space before /all). Here you find your MAC address – note that there is two cards in your laptop, and the card you want the MAC address for is the wireless card.

Wireless is not secure


Step 1 Log into the Router

A device which forwards packets between networks. The forwarding decision is based on network layer information and routing tables, often constructed by routing protocols.'); return false">Router
by entering it’s IP address into a browser. The default IP address is http://192.168.1.1. At the login, enter your username (admin) and password (admin).
Step 2 Click on “Wireless” on the left hand side then click on “WEP” at the top of the page.
tew-432brp_f_1.jpg Step 3 Enter in the desired encryption values then click “Apply”.
Examples:
Authentication type:WEP WEP
Type: Open
System Mode: Hex WEP
Key: 64-bit Key 1: 0000000000
Note: For WEP you can choose ASCII or HEX modes.
64bit ASCII = 5 digit ASCII key.
64bit HEX = 10 digit HEX key. (Can only use letters A~F and numbers)
128bit ASCII = 13 digit ASCII key.
128bit HEX = 26 digit HEX key. (Can only use letters A~F and numbers)
You can also choose WPA

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is becoming the wireless security standard. It is a higher level of security than WEP that combines encryption and authentication to create an unbreakable level of protection. For small office and home users the WPA preshared key (WPA-PSK) is the easiest set up and does not involve a Certificate Authority Server, which is recommended for small and large business customers. Once the preshared key is set-up on each network device, every packet sent over the wireless network will receive its own encryption key under the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP). A key benefit to WPA is that it is backward compatible with WEP-only devices. For those users looking to ensure those who share keys are who they claim to be a Certificate Authority Server or RADIUS Server can be added. This requires a more complicated set-up and is not recommended for smaller networks. Also, one thing to note is that WPA adds to the packet size, typical transmissions will take longer.'); return false">WPA

Securing my wireless connection


Hi ladynb,

 

Open the DI-524 window by typing 192.168.0.1 into internet explorer address bar, and press enter.  Fill in your password, and press enter.  Click on the  Wireless button. This should open the Wireless Settings window for the 524.  Set SSID broadcast to  Enabled. Set Security to WEP.  Set Authentication to open system.  Set WEP Encryption to 64bit.   Set Type to HEX. Click and select radio button next to KEY1.  Enter a 10 digit number that you can remember, like 1234567890, or 1111122222.   Now click the Apply button at bottom of the screen.

Now any device that you wish to link  will will need to use this Key.   Scan for the router, connect and use Infrastructure mode, Type in the 10 digit number you were suppose to remember, and off you go.

Unable to apply any authentication for the Wireless


there should'nt be a problem setting WEP security or an other unless there is a firmware problem, as you simply select security, then the method e.g. WEP, select hex, then open system amd type manually your values for a chosen key number from 1 to 4.
