Re: can't find WEP key for DS
You can see the WEP key at the side or bottom of your modem. Its the 10-digit code. If it is not listed there, you need to access the Setup Page of Motorola modem. Go to internet explorer and type http://192.168.1.254

Try changing your WiFi encription to WEP or no security, this should be available on your cablemodem/router web internface (need a user and password for that) under the Wireless/Security option.
DS Lite is not compatible with any other WiFi encription for online gaming: "Important note about the Nintendo DSi and WPA security: While the Nintendo DSi is compatible with WPA security, Nintendo DS games with online play still require the use of WEP or no security to connect with the Nintendo WFC. Therefore, your connection settings for using these games must be set up on slots 1-3. If you need more details on using your adjusting your router's settings,click here and select your router (if available).
The problem is the fact the nintendo ds only supports only one security setting which is 128 bit wep. You were probaly trying to connect to a modem with wpa2 or something else. If you want your ds to connect, consult your modem's manual to change the security to 128 Bit WEP and think of a ten character password (no less or it won't work).
WEP and WPA are types of security that are used to protect home wireless networks. WEP is the only security setting that works with the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite. WPA and WEP are both compatible with the Nintendo DSi. If you are not sure how to find your router's WEP or WPA Key or if you have problems entering it into your Nintendo DS, try the following tips: so if your wifi is WPA. you wont be able to use wireless but if your wifi is WEP you can. WEP is not recommended because it is not secure. Easy to hack

The DS's Wi-Fi capabilities are not up to par and can unfortunately be a little fickle sometimes, and many people would rather buy another wi-fi device before trying to set it up, but if you do want to attempt to obtain your wep key so you can have wi-fi I am happy to assist you.
What you must do is get on to a computer that is hooked up to your wireless modem. From there you should be able to bring up on your system settings the information about the modem. Depending on what type of modem it is, you may have to flip through the more advanced information to find the wep address.
Once you do, you will have to put that code into the DS and pray that it works, because much of the time your DS will still not be able to connect.
Also check the WEP key as it may say the AP (access point) isn't there if the WEP is wrong.
Also some routers won't connect properly to the DS unless the IP,Gateway, and DNS are set manually.
If you choose to set the AP info manualy then you need to find the you AP's IP address. Commonly this would be 192.168.1.1 however it varies from one brand to another or may be changed manualy. Try these settins with the corrected IP adress number as the gateway.
IP Adress 192.168.1.152 (this is you'r DS IP adress. The 3rd digit should be the same as you gatway's 3rd digit. The fourth digit can be any number that isn't used on your network.
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
DNS Pri 192.168.1.1 DNS Sec 192.168.1.0 (Usually I set the Gateway and DNS numbers the same and it usually works. The Gateway is the IP address of your wifi router.)
If this fails and all numbers are correct, then it may be that the WiFi router will not work with the DS as some brands simply refuse to work with it for unkown reasons.
Anohter solution is to get a WiFi USB dongle and connect to that.
Try admin for the username and motorola for the password. The default SSID is Motorola. Here is the pdf with all of this info.
Hi , the 2701HG-B by default uses the last 3digits of the SN number as the SSID and the 10 digit number in brackets as the WEP key to access the user interface of the 2701 type in the address bar of your browser 192.168.1.254 and push enter, to access the interface program you will need to run the system set up and you must know the keycode from your service provider and the username and password
