Nintendo Wi-fi Connector Problem

I have recently purchased one of these for a Nintendo DS. The Nintendo DS manages to connect to it but it then gives me an error message indicating that it cannot connect to the server. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the router's incompatibility since I have turned off everything that could interfere with it including firewalls and such.

    I am actually talking about about using a wi-fi connector not a wireless router. the reason i talked about my router was because the error help explained that it might have a problem with the router or something like that where it might not be compatible/firewalls ect.

Nintendo ds should work with most routers it's just the set thats a problem, once the wifi game is in go to wifi connection one settings,then where it says auto obtain ip address click no, then edit,then use an ip address that is the next digit up from your pc or your router eg, if your routers ip address is 192.168.2.1( this is what you would type in your internet browser to get into the router settings), the next digit used by a pc would be 192.168.2.2, so use 192.168.2.3 or above incase you have more than one pc. Next is the subnet mask which should again be as the routers subnet mask which will more than likely be 255.255.255.0., press edit and enter that number Next is the gateway setting, press edit, this is the same number of your routers own ip address as mentioned earlier this is the ip address you type to get into the router eg 192.168.2.1. next is auto obtain DNS, again click no, then on the primary address click edit and again enter your routers own ip address. next is secondary DNS, again click edit and again enter your routers ip address, then click save settings. You should now be able to connect to your router and the wifi connection at nintendo server.

    sorry but you have lost me, you say you were talking about wifi connector, this is the same as a wireless router, unless you mean something else; what is a wifi connector when you are refering to a ds it's built in and connects to a wireless router, you need a wifi (wireless) router to enable you to connect your ds to a network and then enable a conection to the Nintendo server, how else would you get a ds to connect, you have to have a router and the settings that i gave to set up the ds to connect to the server

    if you have posted the correct model router, it is not wireless and there is no way you can connect a ds by wifi unless you have a wireless router, the ds cannot connect directly to the nintendo server without your internet connection, i think you are trying to do something imposible without the wireless router, unless i am missing something

Error code 054001


The Nintendo DS is unable to connect to an Access Point. What to do will depend on where you are connecting from:

Connecting from a wireless home network:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector
  • If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:


  • Make sure that the DS is within 30 feet of the wireless access point and facing in its general direction.


  • Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off.

If the above information does not work, and you are using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, click here for additional assistance.
If the above information does not work, and you are connecting at home with a wireless router, there could be settings on your router that need to be adjusted. Please click here for more information.

How do you get internet on the Nintendo DS Lite Console


I ran into this recently when we got a wireless network at our house. In order to browse the internet on your DS Lite, you need some kind of browser software, which can be purchased.
http://www.nintendodslitebundle.org/how-to-get-internet-on-nintendo-ds-lite

It should be noted that the DS Lite is only able to connect to a wireless network that is encrypted with a WEP password. It cannot connect to a network encrypted with a WPA or WPA2 password. Unfortunately (for the DS Lite), a lot of wireless networks are making WPA the standard, because it is more secure. However, you can change the settings of your wireless network (typically) so that it is encrypted with a WEP password. Just be aware that this makes your network less secure.

Error Code 51099


Unfortunately, that error code means that your router is incompatible with the DS. I had this problem when I played DS, and we ended up buying the Nintendo Wi-fi USB connector, which acts as a bridge to let your DS connect through the PC it's plugged into.

You can find a USB connector at most electronic stores, but you just need to make sure it is the official Nintendo Wi-fi USB Connector, not a cheaper substitute, as those WILL NOT work.

The other option is getting a new router, which is the better but more expensive option. Chances are, your router is pretty old or low quality if you're getting that error anyways, and buying a new one will fix that problem right up.

What does error code:51099 mean


Error Code: 51099

The only access point within range of your Nintendo DS is not configured or is not compatible with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (such as those found in many Hotspots).

Where are you trying to connect from?

1. Wireless Home Router (please scroll down)
2. Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector (click here)
3. Hotspot (click here)

Using a router:

1. Please make sure that your router is not on our list of incompatible routers. Click here to view the list and locate your router (if available). If it is listed as "not compatible," then it appears your router will not work with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Consult the compatibility chart for recommended routers, or consider purchasing a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. If your router is not listed as being incompatible, please proceed to step #2.
2. Ensure your router has the latest firmware installed. Visit your router manufacturer's website and look for any updated firmware that may be available (these are typically found under "downloads" or by searching for your particular model number). Contact your router manufacturer for additional assistance.

3. Make sure that your network's name (SSID) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Nintendo DS.
1. Log in to your router using the default IP (consult the router?s owner?s manual for assistance).
2. Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
3. After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of your Nintendo DS that the SSID is appearing exactly as listed in your router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.

4. Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router Configuration page.
2. Use the drop-down box on the left to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing such things as the Transmission Rate.

5. Your router may not be assigning an IP address to the Nintendo DS. Try manually assigning an IP address to your Nintendo DS.
1. The first thing you'll need to do is find out what IP address your router is using. To do this:
1. Click the "Start" button in the lower left-hand corner of your computer.
2. Click "Run."
3. Type "cmd" into the box and press Enter.
4. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press Enter. The IP address displayed of the PC will be displayed.
The IP address you going to assign to the Nintendo DS must be 10 digits higher than the PC?s. (e.g., 192.168.1.100 becomes 192.168.1.110)
2. You will now need to manually assign this new IP address to your Nintendo DS. For step-by-step instructions on how to do this, please click here.

If you are still unable to connect, please call 1-800-255-3700 in the USA or Canada for more information.



Using a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector:

* Does the Blue Wi-Fi registration tool icon appear in the system tray of your PC (typically this is found in the bottom right-hand corner of your computer screen, near the clock)?
1. Yes. If the connector has been inserted very recently, it may take several moments for it to establish a connection. Retry.
2. Yes. If the USB Connector is inserted directly into the PC, trying attaching the plastic extension cable that came with your USB Connector. Getting some distance between the PC and the USB Connector may help the signal strength.
3. No. Is the software installed? Is the USB connector inserted? Restart the PC, and if it still does not appear, we recommend uninstalling the software and installing the latest version. Click here to get the latest software for the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.
4. Yes, but it's gray. Is the USB connector inserted? Right-click the registration tool icon and choose to run the registration tool. If it does not respond, restart the PC. If it still does not respond, we recommend uninstalling the software and installing the latest version. Click here to get the latest software for the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.

Trying to connect to wifi usb connector and keep getting error code 52203


I'm assuming you are talking about the nintendo DS. Here is the info on that error code straight from nintendo:

Error Code: 52203
The Access Point you are attempting to connect from is not connected to the internet or a firewall is blocking traffic necessary for connecting to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. What to do will depend on where you are trying to connect from: What to do:
    If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector
  • Verify that your router is connected to the internet when attempting to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. If you are not able to access the internet on your computer, then there is a problem with your internet connection. Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for more information.

  • America Online (AOL) broadband users may experience difficulties when attempting to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Please contact America Online for assistance.

  • If this error occurs regularly, while you are playing at home, it is likely a connection problem related to your firewall settings. For more information on firewalls and the Nintendo WFC, click here.

If the above information does not work, and you are connecting at home with a wireless router, there could be settings on your router that need to be adjusted. Please click here for more information.

Connecting from a non-partnered Hotspot:
    If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector
  • The access point at the Hotspot may not be experiencing problems. Ask the staff on site if their Wi-Fi network is up and running.

  • If the Hotspot's access point has a built-in firewall or other security that interferes with the necessary transmissions from the Nintendo DS, then the access point will not be compatible with the Nintendo DS.

  • Try another Hotspot. To search for known Hotspots in your area, click here.
