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.

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!

Trying to connect to wifi usb connector and keep getting error code 52203


I'm assuming you are talking about the nintendo DS. Here is the info on that error code straight from nintendo:

Error Code: 52203
The Access Point you are attempting to connect from is not connected to the internet or a firewall is blocking traffic necessary for connecting to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. What to do will depend on where you are trying to connect from: What to do:
    If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector
  • Verify that your router is connected to the internet when attempting to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. If you are not able to access the internet on your computer, then there is a problem with your internet connection. Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for more information.

  • America Online (AOL) broadband users may experience difficulties when attempting to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Please contact America Online for assistance.

  • If this error occurs regularly, while you are playing at home, it is likely a connection problem related to your firewall settings. For more information on firewalls and the Nintendo WFC, click here.
If the above information does not work, and you are using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, click here for additional assistance.
If the above information does not work, and you are connecting at home with a wireless router, there could be settings on your router that need to be adjusted. Please click here for more information.

Connecting from a non-partnered Hotspot:
    If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector
  • The access point at the Hotspot may not be experiencing problems. Ask the staff on site if their Wi-Fi network is up and running.

  • If the Hotspot's access point has a built-in firewall or other security that interferes with the necessary transmissions from the Nintendo DS, then the access point will not be compatible with the Nintendo DS.

  • Try another Hotspot. To search for known Hotspots in your area, click here.
