SOURCE: connection to x box live recken my head

two things, if you're using a wireless modem, unplug it from console, re-set it and let it connect and sit for a minute. then plug it back into the console. if you have just a regular modem do the same thing. make sure the wire connecting you're box to the modem isn't too long(over 7feet is too long). it wont update if you're not connected to the internet.

SOURCE: trying to connect to internet on my sons psp but

Go to your Settings, System Settings, and click on Restore default settings. Doing this resets everything to factory settings. Don't worry, it ONLY resets settings. It won't delete anything on your Memory Stick. This feature resets your nicknames, any passwords, and along with Flash player and WMA playback. This will work. When you are done, it will be as if you just got your PSP. Your data will still be intact. However, if you're talking about not knowing the password on your Wi-fi network, then you'll have to contact the provider.

SOURCE: my dsi console wont connect to wireless connection

You need to get your hubs wireless settings up, to do this type bthomehub.home in the address bar of your internet browser, you will then be propted for your hubs username and password which can be found on the back of the hub unless you changed it in which case you will have to use those instead.

Click on settings and choose wireless-

Make sure you have the following settings applied:

1) Interface type: 802.11b, g or n (as far as im aware the DSi wont work with n so either have the mixed (b,g or n) or just b)
2) Encryption Type: TKIP
3) Authentication: WEP or WPA

First try the WPA as its more secure but if you have no luck try the WEP with a 128 bit key first and if it don't work try a 64 bit key.

Hope this helps, any further problems feel free to contact me via my profile page and I will do my best to help you.

SOURCE: my nintendo dsi will not

If you have already applied the solution suggested by Nintendo without success, consider upgrading the firmware in your wireless router. In some cases, devices other than the DSi connect with no problem but the DSi shows the error code 052201.

How do i set up my daughters connection for er dsi? error codes 051099-1 comes up and the dsi says: no access point in range. check your ssid settings or move closer to an access point. what do i need to...

This probably means your not connected to any wifi.

You can check for a wifi access point by following these steps

  1. Go to your dsi settings (the wrench icon)
  2. Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."
  3. now choose "connection settings"
  4. click on one of the them that says "none"
  5. Click on "Search for an Access Point."
  6. a list of wifi access points should pop up
  • The wifi connection you are connecting to must have No Security or WEP
  • If the wifi connection is WPA you will not be able to go online for games
7. Choose one of those access points to connect to and if it is secured by WEP you must put in the password for that access point.

Good luck :)

Unable to connect to an access point. always say check my connection setting. error code. in my palce we have a wifi conect, i want to use it by cannot acess. why what can i do. pls help.

If your Wifi in your residence is using anything other than WEP or an open connection, your DSi will not connect to it.

Make sure your WiFi router's security key is only a WEP encryption, not WEP+WPA or anything like that.

Hope this helps!

How do I connect my DSi to my WI-FI connection?

Simply tap "system settings" on the home screen of your DSi Then, scroll to the third screen of system settings and select "internet Select "Connection Settings" Tap "none"
Once you've done this a list of available WIFI connections should come up, Pick yours. If your WIFI WEP-key encoded, you will have to enter it using the touch screen, then select "connect". You should then be connected to your WIFI internet.
If the problem persists, check the model of your WIFI adapter, and make sure its compatible with the Nintendo DSi System.

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.

Im trying to log on to the Internet for the first time using my Nintendo dsi and it wont allow me to do it.

Have you configured the WiFi settings for your DSi? If not, it's an easy process. First you go into your DSi settings menu and scroll over to "Internet". Once there, you will see 3 connection options to choose from. Select an open one and then choose the auto search option. The DSi will search for WiFi hotspots nearby that are accessible. Once it brings up a list, choose one that is either unlocked or one that you know the access key for.

After you choose a connection, the DSi will perform a connection test to make sure it's working. When it's done, it will say "Connection Successful". Go back to the DSi menu and access your Internet Browser or online functions in your game. You should be all set.

Connect the dsi to internet

If you have wireless internet router then you can connect the DSi without the use of a hotspot. Simply search for your router's name and enter the WEP code so the DSi can connect. Go to the Nintendo Wifi Setup page if you are confused. They have step by step instructions on how to configure any of their products to wifi.
