Well, sounds like you have a wep or wap encryption on your network...Usually to fix it (if you don't know your wep or wap) just press the reset button on your router. This has happened to me before, and that is all i had to do.

Not connecting to the internet

Router ?

Problems authenticating a router in a computer is a common problem when installing a router or if your internet service gets disrupted. It is easy to solve and only requires a few steps to fix. A router forwards data from a computer to a computer network. The network can be between multiple computers, such as one would need in an office. The network can also, and more usually in households, used for connecting to the internet. Open "System Preferences" in the Applications folder in Finder. Open "Network" under "Internet and Wireless." Click "Advanced" and select "TCP/IP." Select "Renew DHCP License" and click ok. Attempt to connect to the internet. If the internet is still not connecting, restart the router and try the steps again. b> For non-Macs b> Open "Wireless Network Connection" from the wireless tab at the bottom of the screen. Select "Change Advanced Settings." Choose the "Wireless Networks" tab. Choose the wireless network you want to connect to and select the "Properties" button. Under the "Association" tab, make sure the Network Authentication has the proper security level chosen. Enter your network key if your security code is anything other than "Open" or "Shared." Select OK and try to connect. Go Back to "Wireless Networks" tab -> "Properties" and click on "Authentication" tab and un-select the "Enable authentication for the network" selection if the network key is still not authenticating the router. Select OK and try to connect.
Hope this helps.

Wireless card connecting to network but not able to connect to internet

It is possible that your Network key/Security password is incorrect one reason why you can connect to he Network but not get any internet, or the router setting is set only to provide wireless internet on a number of devices all at once.
Depends on the router you have check the setting and see if it is set to limited number of devices that can connect to the internet or try disabling the Network/Security Key and try connecting to the network and see if you can get internet, if you do then the Network key is the issue.

Error code 051099

It appears that the settings entered into the Nintendo DS are not compatible, or the router's broadcast settings should be changed.

What we need to do is try creating a new connection with your system.
1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and access the System Settings by clicking on the wrench icon
2. Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."
3. Now choose "Connection Settings."
4. Click on "None" for "Connection 1." (Don't see "None" for Connection 1? To ensure any existing settings don't interfere with getting connected, tap the button, then choose "Clear Settings.")
5. Click on "Search for an Access Point."
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.

You will now have 3 options
A. GOLD UNLOCKED LOCK (No security - Tap on your network name to save the settings and begin a connection test.)
WEP security - Your wireless network is secured with WEP and requires a security key.

Follow the steps now depending on your option
Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DSi is now connected online.
The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code. LET ME KNOW WHAT IT IS

B. WEP security - Your wireless network is secured with WEP and requires a security key.
Enter your WEP key
On the upper screen you will be informed that "A security key is needed to connect to this access point." Enter your security key by tapping the empty field, and select "OK" when finished.

Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."

The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DSi is now connected online.

  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
    • Error Code 51300 or 51099: This means the security code entered into the Nintendo DSi is not the same one the router is set to. Scroll back up to step #3 of this page for the step-by-step directions. To reach your connection settings, click "back" on the error code screen. Make sure to pay extra attention to the security key you find in your router's settings and enter it exactly as it appears (the key is case sensitive).
    • All other error codes: Let me know what it is.

    Play online ps3 in hotel free wireless Internet n won't connect

    I'm staying in a hotel and have free wi-fi and wired internet but I can not seem to get online. During the connection test the "obtain IP address" step is successful, however the next step "internet connection" fails. This is an unsecured network and does not require any wpa keys , and I don't think it requires an SSID. I had no trouble connecting my laptop.

    The main reason why you have this error message because your computer is not getting a valid IP address from teh wireless network, and the reason why its not getting a valid IP address is the wireless security or sometimes called WEP/WPA kay are not type in to the correct place, If you have a WEP enable on your wireless network you will have two option on the Linksys WLAN monitor where you can type in teh security key, you will see two boxes there when you try to connect to the secured network one says Passohrase and one says WEP key1 and if yuo have a wireless key that has a total of 10 or 26 key character you need to type that on the WEP key1 box leave the passphrase blank...But if it still didn't work you can contact this number for help 1-877-787-8749....

    Internect connecting

    If the laptop was connecting wirelessly before and you didn't change the wireless security key on the router during your troubleshooting steps with the ISP then it should just reconnect. If it doesn't reconnect you should probably delete the wireless profile that's saved and try connecting again. When you delete the wireless profile you will have to enter the security key again. Make sure you have this information handy.

    If you are uncertain what the wireless security key is use your desktop that is physically connected to the router to log into the router and reset the security key.

    To log onto the router you need to know the routers IP Address. You can obtain that information through the following:

    Type CMD
    Click OK
    Hit Enter
    Look for the default gateway. The default gateway is the IP Address of the router. By default the IP is

    Type whatever IP Address you discovered into the address bar of your web browser (Internet Explorer for most) and hit enter.

    You will be prompted for a login. If you didn't change the default login information to the router it should be a blank username and the word: admin - as the password.

    Navigate to the wireless settings and reset the security key.

    From your laptop key in the new network key.

    Hope this helps.

    Are you trying to connect via Wifi or via a LAN (a cord).

    If Wifi, are you sure there is a network? Do you have the network key? A network key is basically a 10+ character gibberish password that you get when you set up a secure wireless network... It is easier to connect to a non-secure network, but no one recommends keeping a non-secure network... because its not secure ;)

    If LAN, try plugging the cord into a computer, and seeing if the computer can connect to the LAN. If a computer can connect, I see no reason the PS3 wouldn't be able to. If the computer can't connect, verify the other end of the cord is plugged into your router/wall, and that it is securely seated. If a router, unplug the power for 10 seconds, then plug it back in and try again.
