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.

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 Cood


You can put in your wireless code by connecting to the DI-524 using the LAN cable. Open you web browser (Internet Explorer) on your computer, and type in the address http://192.168.0.1 This should take you to the sign on screen for your DI-524. user ID will be "admin" and password is blank unless you have changed it. Go to the "Wireless" button on the left. There you can specify the type of wireless security you want and the secret code. The most simple security is WEP, with 64bit WEP encryption, and "Open System" authentication. Enter a 10 digit numeric code in "Key 1". You don't need to fill our the other keys. NOTE the number down for future reference.

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

Problems connecting my laptop to wireless router


Make sure that you do the setup via cable, not through wireless!
If you change form WPA to WEP, the length of the key changes and you will have to provide this new key if you want to connect wireless to your router.
You can leave your laptop connected via cable and check if your wireless card can connect.
No, you don't have to reinstall everything again. Just plug in the cable, connect to your router (192.168.x.x) and check your wireless setup.

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.

Cant connect


Hi purplegarion,

 

hook up the router per instruction in manual and your particular internet connection.  With the Di524 powered up, use the end of a paperclip to depress the reset button located in a little hole beside the power connection.   open internet explorer and type in 192.168.0.1 and press enter.  The password is admin. once th screen appears, click on Wizard.  Follow the wizards directions carefully.  

For simplicity of security click on the wireless button while in the  wireless screen.  Set radio to on.  Enter a SSID like purplegarion. Set to open system.  Set Security to WEP.  Wep to HEX.  64bit.  Enter into Key one a 10 digit number you can remember like 1234567890.  Click apply.  Change your password to a personal password other than ADMIN.   

Any device that attaches will need to enter the WEP 64 Bit hex Security key 1234567890, or whatever 10 digit number you put in the router. 

Internet connection will require powering down you modem, and the DI-524 router.  power up the modem first and let it go through the start up, then power up thte DI 524.  you may need to make sure your DHCP is set to Automatically assign an IP address.

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.
