Nintendo DS Browser Failsafe Mode:
Ok, you may need help to do this, as everywhere I have looked has said it's pretty tough to do alone (one person said they had to hold the stylus in their mouth).

When you go to launch the browser, hold L, R, Up, X, B, and select Enter Failsafe mode to clear bookmarks and reset to factory settings (as well as eliminating the password).

This key combination is the first thing the system and browser checks for, so you have to be holding it from the start of the boot-up. So turn the unit off, press the buttons (and hold them) then turn it on, continuing to hold them while tapping A to launch the browser from the menu. Continue holding until you get the failsafe screen or asked for the password (in which case you need to try again).

How do i factory reset my DSI XL?

Eject any games from the DSi's game slot and power on the console.

Tap the "wrench" icon on the DSi's main menu to open the settings menu.

Tap the arrow on the right side of the screen until you reach page four of the settings menu.

I forgot my pin so can ya tell me the master key to the dsi XL my inquiry number is 77009378

Hi tuhulu,
Attached is a website to get a bypass code for your DSi -
Although, it only indicates Wii, it also works for Nintendo DSi consoles.
Just key in your Inquiry number and date and then just use the unlock code from the website to unlock your console.
Please note that the date that you enter into the website should be the same date that reflects on your Dsi console.
I hope this trick helps you too. Let me know if it works for you.
Cheers !

I forgot the master key do you know what it is

The only way to retrieve the master key for your Nintendo Dsi is to call Nintendo's US branch. Their number is:

Once you get in touch with them, they have to ask you questions to confirm your date of birth. You have to be 18 (or a parent/guardian), and once they confirm this they will give you the master password so you can reset yours.

Need parental code or master key for second hand dsi xl

Unfortunately, if you don't know the PIN or the secret password (Which seems to be the case, since the DSiXL is second-hand), then you need to call Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 to reset the code.

I forgot my pin number for wi-fi what is the master key on nintendo dsi?

The master key is different for every DSi system. Call Nintendo and get to the DSi helper. Then tell them your inquiry number and they'll tell you the master key. Provide proof of ID, your inquiry number on the DSi and your DSi serial number.

Cant get wifi on it the error code is 51099 also dont know where to buy a wifi cip or even what it is realy called.

Error Code: 51099 This error code can occur for two different reasons:
  • You are trying to agree to the User Agreement of the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL, but are receiving error code 51099. This can occur if the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL tries to connect to Nintendo's servers to download the User Agreement, but there is no existing Internet connection setup on the system. To connect your Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL to the Internet, please click here.
  • You are trying to play a Nintendo DS game online with a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL, but your home Internet is set to WPA security. Please read the following:
There appears to be a compatibility issue with the security settings on your router:
Are you using WPA security?
    No, I am using WEP security
If you are using a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL, you will be able to connect online and use many online features with WPA security. However, you will not be able to play original Nintendo DS games that are Wi-Fi compatible, as they are only programmed to work with WEP security. In order to play these games online, you will need to do the following (If you are not receiving this error when attempting to connect games online, click here):

  • Change your wireless security to WEP or temporarily disable wireless security if you wish to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

  • If you are unable to log into your router or do not know how, you can check our router look-up page (link) to see if it is listed. If your model number is not listed, check any similar models from the same manufacturer for default information. If you are still unable to log into your router, please refer to the router manufacturer or the company that provided it.

  • Make sure your router is not on our list of incompatible routers. If it is, we recommended using a router that is compatible or co nnecting from a hotspot location.

  • The wireless security settings are typically found under sections labeled 'Wireless', 'Basic Wireless' or 'Wireless Security'.

  • Change the security mode to WEP, and chose your encryption type. The 64-bit encryption type typically uses a 10 character key while the 128-bit encryption type uses a 26 character key. Hexadecimal keys consist of letters A-F and 0-9, whereas ASCII keys have no limitations and are case sensitive. Be sure to use the key that is listed in 'key slot 1' and make sure you are not using a 'passphrase'. For specific information about changing your security type please see your router's manual or contact the manufacturer.
  • Important Note: it is recommended that any changes made to the router are performed from a computer that is wired via Ethernet cable to the router. In addition, any changes made to wireless security must also be adjusted on other wireless devices in the home that use the router (e.g. laptops, other game systems, etc). For instructions on how to change these devices, refer to the user manuals for these devices or contact the manufacturer.

  • Establish a connection in connection files 1-3 on the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL. Make sure you are putting the WEP key into the Nintendo DSi exactly as it appears on your router page.

If the error persists while using WEP (or if you are receiving this error with other Wi-Fi features), follow these steps:

  • Keep trying, as there may be a temporary network issue. If the problem persists, or has been consistent over a period of time, move on to the next step.

  • Configure the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL manually
      Please note: if your router is set to broadcast the network but the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL is not finding the access point then a manual setup will not resolve the error. There may be another problem, such as interference, or a basic setting in your router that is causing compatibility issues. Be sure that your router is set to 'Enable SSID broadcast' or 'Enable Wireless broadcast'. If you prefer to keep your network name hidden, verify the correct spelling and case of your router's SSID.
