Question about Actiontec (GT704WG) Router
So, My whole house runs off of the Actionec GT704WG wireless system, even my Wii picks up on it with no problem. But, when I try to use any internet-based wireless activities with my DS, (Like, trading Pokemon worldwide) it blocks me and says it can't read the password. (It has the grey locked icon next to it)
So, What I was guessing is one of 3 things. Maybe someone can help me...
1. Change the password to......something. Or change it to a WEP key, since the DS can apparently read that. Both of wich, I don't really know how to do, as this was given to me by another person, and he's forgotten too.
2. Get the DS internet adapter-thingie. I dont know if this will actually work, though, and for like, $40, it's kind of a big risk...
3. Smash my head and or the DS until one gives up.
The Nintendo website didnt really help, either, it just more or less said that I need a different connection. But, if the Wii can do it, then why not the DS?
Also, if it helps, it's a DS lite, not the original.
Your DS may need another connection that is only blocked with a red lock. (Meaning WEP code locked.) If so, phone a computer tech support to help you set a connection with Wifi (wireless connection) and ask him/ her to set it to WEP code and "blocked". Then ask them to temporarily leave while you set your WEP password. A grey lock means that your DS is not compatible to your access point.

Can You Use Nintendo DS With Wii?
The portable Nintendo systems, Nintendo
DS, DS Lite, and DSi, are connectible with the Nintendo Wii system,
much like the compatibility between Nintendo's Gameboy Advance and
Gamecube video game systems.
