Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Ds lite connection

Everytime i try to connect it says that the ds will use WEP, as my router is on WAP and I dont know how to change it...I have just purchased a Wifi Max dongle on E-bay but I now hear that they dont work with Vista, I would appreciate any help with this. Why do Nintendo make it so hard with the DS, my psp and Wii only took 2 mins to connect

Have you considered changing your router from WPA to WEP? That would solve your problem with getting your DS online, although it would reduce the security of your home network. But some security is better than none. As far as the WiFi Max dongle, that's just a simple version of a wireless router and since you already have one it's kind of redundant. You might want to put it up on E-Bay and see if you can make some of your money back.

My ds lite wont connect to our internet i have a wireless router the ds says the security settings are not supported by the nintendo ds

WPA and WPA2 are not supported by the DS Lite, only WEP and unencrypted wifi connections are. There is no known way at the moment to make the DS Lite support WPA of any form so your only three options are to go to WEP encryption, use no encryption (not recommended), or set up an adhoc connection on a computer with that is connected to your router that has internet connection sharing enabled.

How to fix error code 051110-1

This code means that it couldn't access the Wi-Fi access point. Make sure you are close enough to your router, and your connection settings match. Also, try using WEP (instead of WPA) if you aren't already.

I am going to take a guess here - you are trying to connect a DS lite to your wireless network - the DS only support WEP security not WPA. Most wireless routers will default to WPA security. You need to log into your router and change its security to WEP. Details are dependent on the router make and model. If you need details on haw to change the wireless network please let me know.

Cant connect to wireless router getting error

Most likely, your router has WAP protection. For some reason beyond my comprehension, Nintendo DS systems are only compatible with WEP protection. If you need help regarding the changing of the security, I'd be more than willing to help. Hope this was useful!
