Yes, you have to buy it for around 30 dollars, or, if you have a wireless router, you can use that instead. It'll tell you how to set up the Wifi connection in the instruction booklet that comes with the DS

Where do i go to get a wifi conection


To conect to wifi, you'd need to buy a WI-FI USB connecter. They can be found at most video game stores for $37.00 (varies on location) They get plugged into your USB port on your computer, then they enable you to connect to wifi . If you have a Laptop the USB port should be found on the side.

If you just need more information off of what I've given you, read the bottom of my post for a recommended website for Wi-Fi.

When you get a USB connecter:

On your DS:
Once you have it plugged in, turn on your DS with a game that is compatible with Wi-Fi. In the game there should be a place where it allows you to adjust your Wi-Fi settings.
When you select that, two options should appear, tap on the one that is labled "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings" You'll see four options to chose from, you want to tap on the one near the bottom of the screen, it's shown as "Connect To Your Wi-Fi USB Connecter." The next screen will say for you to install your Wi-Fi connecter software to your computer

On your computer:(you must have internet connection on the computer)
Close your DS for now and turn your attention to your computer, insert the USB into the the USB port on your computer. The picture that is next to the port will look like this:

Install the software first, then a window will appear after the installation. Ignore it for now, and look back to your DS.

On your DS:
It should still be on the same screen you left it on unless your battery is dead (not recommended to conect to wi-fi with low power )
Tap "Ok" on your DS, It'll then launch a test connection. Look back at your computer screen now.

On your computer:
The box I told you to leave alone before will still be on, and now it should have your DS name inside it. Your DS name is what you entered your name as on your DS configuration settings.
Click on your DS name and select the option allow access. You can either allow or deny anyone access to connect on wi-fi through your USB.

On your DS:
Now that you have allowed access to your self on the computer, you can get back to your game and tap on "connect to Wi-Fi" this time instead of tapping "test connection." You'll then get a friend code that will allow you to interact with others who have connected with the same game.

Notes: For more about getting started,connected, and swapping friend codes, view this site: http://www.nintendowifi.com/global/AboutWIFI_DS.jsp
Also, if you've ever heard of a Wi-Fi hotspot, that just means you have to take your own computer or laptop with Your own Wi-Fi USB connecter to the certain area for free Internet service. This only means public areas, like at Starbucks or Panera Bread Compay, but then if you're doing this at a friends house then you just need to get your self registered access on their USB.

Sitting in a Starbucks trying to connect to Internet. Get error code 052211-1. Unable to connect settings and access points


The reason this is happening is because Starbucks makes you login to an account before you are able to access the internet. Unfortunately the DSi is unable to use this login page as the DSi does not have a web browser. However there is still a way for you to get online.
You will need
  • A laptop
  • USB Wi-Fi connector for the DS
Then just follow these steps
  1. Turn on your laptop and access the Starbucks Wi-Fi
  2. Plug the USB Wi-Fi connector into your laptop.
  3. You should now be able to easily play your DS online

How do you get the wi-fi on the ds


To set up a Wi-Fi connection on your DS Lite you have to use a Wi-Fi enable DS game. Wi-Fi enable DS games have a Wi-Fi symbol on the front of the box it came in. Simply play the game and you should see options to set up a Wi-Fi connection.

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.

My router has a WPA key instead of a WEP key. Can my DS Lite still connect to Wi-Fi internet without using the usb Wi-Fi connector?


Unfortunately no. I had the same problem. My router, thankfully, could be changed to WPA on my computer. If it can't then my best suggestion would be that routers are not terribly expensive.

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.

My nintendo DS can't find my usb connector


The wi-fi USB dongle comes with software, install that before plugging the dongle in. If you have lost the software, download it from Nintendo:

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/customersupport/downloadUSB.jsp

After the software is installed, there will be a blue circular icon in your system tray (lower right, by the clock). Double click that.

Now turn on a game that uses wi-fi. When prompted to set it up, select the USB connector.

Your DS should show up on the program on your computer. Click it, and then select "Grant permission to connect."

It should run a test now, and all should be well!
