A Wifi router and microphone as nothing to do with eachother.
You have a defective external headphone assembly (the connector on the front of the DS lite where you can insert a headset).

It must be replaced

I have pokemon white version & it says we do not have wifi connection when we do have it at our house. What do we need to do to make it work?


The DS Lite does in fact connect to wi-fi via a router. For example you can have a Wi-Fi battle with any random person around the world if you have wireless internet in your house on Pokemon Black or White. My thought would be that your router has an encryption type that your DS does not support. The same thing happened to me. You can first try to go to the main menu of your Pokemon game and click on the Nintendo WFC Settings. Through here try and connect to your router by entering the password you have set for your router. If this still doesn't work try taking the password off of your router via your computer and see if you can connect then. Lites will only connect to certain types of encryption passwords. I use WEP and it works fine.

I'm currently trying to connect my DS Lite to my home network. The router I'm trying to connect it to is a MAC router, and when I search for an access point, my DS does pick up that my router is there-...


The DS does not support the WPA encryption scheme; which is the only secure encryption scheme available. You could temporarily degrade the security in the router's admin page to WEP, though I would recommend you use public wifi when you have to, and keep yours secure.

Can't get into wifi with nintendo ds


You need to make sure you have wireless internet. If not you need to buy a router. The cheapest router is $40 at Walmart. You need to install the router to your main home computer giving you wireless internet access. Common routers are Linksys or Belkin. Hope that helps!

We have wifi in our house and i cant seem to connect with my ds. what do i need to do?


Verify that you have the two items needed to connect your DS: a WiFi compatible DS game and a wireless router with WEP or less encryption. Sometimes the DS has trouble with more advanced router security.
Insert a WiFi compatible game into the Nintendo DS and access the wireless network options screen. Each game does this a little differently so check your manual if you have trouble finding it.
Use the options interface to set up a new wireless connection. Choose "Nintendo WiFi Connection Settings," then your first unused connection preset, then "Search for a Wireless Access Point." If everything is set up properly you should be able to find one and connect.
Look at the color of the padlock next to your connection name. Blue means you are ready to go, red means you need to supply a password to connect (common with most home routers) and gray means your router is using security that the DS doesn't understand.

The ds turns on but screen remains black


Hey,

Either 2 things. Your Wireless Wifi Board has gone bad or it has fallen off.


Open up your nintendo DS and look for the black wire connected to a small board. You will know because there are only 2 wires running in the DS. A white one (microphone) A black one (wifi)

This WIFI board (if gone bad) causes the DS to cut on, but get no video at all.

Ds lite connection


Have you considered changing your router from WPA to WEP? That would solve your problem with getting your DS online, although it would reduce the security of your home network. But some security is better than none. As far as the WiFi Max dongle, that's just a simple version of a wireless router and since you already have one it's kind of redundant. You might want to put it up on E-Bay and see if you can make some of your money back.

The Microphone on DS Lite won't respond.


It sounds like you either need to repair the microphone or you could buy a headset with microphone and see if that works as it plugs directly into the main board.

Usually when you connect to Wifi, you automatically get a connection code. You do not usually need a code to connect... Something may be wrong with your DS's connection.
