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!

How can we get wi-fi on our ds lite by usuing a usb cable.


You are thinking of the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector.You can use this to (usually) seamlessly connect your picky Nintendo devices to your router. Once you order/buy it (you may be able to find some at local stores), you simply plug it into your computer and install the drivers required to run it (if any are required). You should then be able to connect using the USB connector.

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.

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.

Hello i have a regular nintendo ds and i have been trying to get my mystery gift on pokemon platinum ihave a netgear wireless router to


Some routers do not support the nintendo ds. there is a list of routers that do support the ds on www.nintendo.com in their customer support area.
if your router does not support the nintendo ds, i recommend that you get a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connector. It plugs right into your computer and gives you wifi for ds and wii. the computer has to be on though.
-Hope this Helps :)

Ds usb connector


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
