I have wifi in my house but cant connect nintendo to wifi dont know what to do


Welcome to Fixya.
Nintendo Dsi/DS/Ds XL connects to the internet using wireless connection. You need to know the settings of your router. I've listed below the steps on how you will access the router and to obtain the information needed for you to be connected.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and theNetwork Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remeber the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we already know the setting of the router then its now time to connect the Dsi to the network.

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reson why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection.

I can't connect to the internet. My DS is giving me Error Code: 51300. What can I do?

According to Nintendo's tech support website, error code 51300 means that the access point you are trying to connect to is not compatible with the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection. Try to find another access point and see if it will work then.

My DS won't connect online it says it has an error 51300

that error indicates either you interference on the wifi signal or you have entered the wrong wifi password. If you are 100% sure the password is correct try changing the channel the wifi is being transmitted on

I put in the wep key put it doesnt let me in wifi and what is ssid how do i put wifi manualy

The Nintendo DS only supports certain types of Wireless Security, the Nintendo site specifies what version DS supports what versions of Wifi Security

An SSID is the name of your wireless network, so it's what you see when you try to connect to a wireless network at your home

to put in Wifi manually you have to put in the SSID, Wireless password, and depending on if your router is set up as manual or automatic, you may have to put in your IP Address and Subnet mask and finally you need to put in a primary DNS server, your primary DNS server IP Address is the IP Address of your router.

What is a ssid

SSID stands for Service Set Identifier, and it is basically the name of your wireless network. I guess you are trying to set up your DS lite for internet. If you have tried to set it up by detecting network, and nothing came up, you will need to get your SSID from your network. Hope this helps!

I would like to know what an ssid is as i am trying to connect a ds to the internet, i have the wep key

the SSID is the name of a wireless network so it is easier to recognize. If you want to make things easy for you to connect to your wireless home network to access the internet with your DS Lite, go to your router configuration. Make sure that the SSID is set to be broadcast or visible. Make the SSID an easy name that you will remember, yet that is not too personal since everyone will be able to see it.
Then start your Nintendo DS and go to the wireless connection configuration. It will start looking for broadcast SSID and will eventually find the one of your network and list it. Select it, enter the WEP when prompted and save the connection.
You should be able to enjoy your internet connection from the DS after that.
Let me know if you encounter any issue.

Heyy guys just wanting to hook my DS lite to the wifi but i need to add it to the network with the mac adress and whats a wep key


Wired Equivalent Protocol is a method of encrypting "over-the-airwaves" transmission of data from one wireless device (your DS-LITE) to another wireless device (your router).

You need to connect a computer to the router, and then configure the "wireless networking" part of your router:
* set an SSID (the name of your network)
* set an encryption level (use 'WPA', not 'WEP')
* set a password

Enter the SSID and the password onto your DS-LITE, to make the wireless connection.

I'm wondering what the SSID is. And the WEP key. And also the IP address. I'm playing fire emblem for ds and wondering if these elements effect the connection for wifi. Thank you

SSID is the Name of your wireless Network

WEP key is the password for your wireless network

You can get these information if you contact your router manufacturer
