Your DS system doesn't support WEP security ..
So better u can change the router to WPA-PSK(TKIP) or u can try with no security ..

  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.

Im not able to use Nintendo Wi-Fi Conection because of a communication error.My error code is:51099


Turn on the Nintendo DSi then Click on the wrench icon to access "System Settings." Select "Internet" on the third page of System Settings. Select "Connection Settings" and tap the "None" bar in "Connection 1." You have the option of setting up a connection manually, or searching for available connections in the area. The easiest thing to do is select "Search for an Access Point." Your Nintendo DSi will list the names of any wireless access points in range. A gold, unlocked icon next to the connection's name signifies an unlocked WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) connection that can be accessed immediately. A locked gold icon signifies an encrypted WEP connection that requires a WEP key (password).
If you are accessing a locked/encrypted connection, enter your WEP key. You may also click "Change Security Settings" to enter a WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) key. If your WEP key is correct, your Nintendo DSi should connect. You can test your connection to verify. You're set! Now you can surf the Internet, purchase games and add-ons in the Nintendo DSi Shop, and play games that allow wireless access and competition (with WEP connections, only).
Note Most Nintendo DS and DSi owners can get online by searching for an access point, but some might have to resort to manual setup.The Nintendo DSi can go online with a WPA connection, but actually playing DSi games online requires a WEP connection.

My dsi can't connect to the internet using my netgear wgr614 v8 wireless router error code is 51110-1 when selecting an acces point my router has full bars but when trying to connect it has zero.


Your router is using a security method the DS cannot handle, because it does not possess the processing power of modern Laptops or Desktops it is unable to use the more sophisticated encryption and security protocols. Try changing the wireless security to WEP protection.

Nintendo ds + wii+ wireless router help


On the router do you have a password? If you have a password on the Router along with the router name then in the setting setup for the Wii you will need to go into the network setup and configure the settings just as you have them on the router. For Example: If the router name is netgear and the password is abc123456789 then in the setting for the Wii you need to put in netgear and the password abc123456789

Setting up wireless connection


Make sure your Netgear router is working correctly and is allowing the PS3 access to it. I suggest visiting the Netgear website (www.netgear.com) and searching for the Router you have. Also try taking down any firewalls that are set up on your computer this will allow the PS3 unlimited access to the connection.
