Re: My WiFi problem
Please confirm the manufacturer and model for the router being used?
The router in the heading of this message does not appear to have
Secondly in terms of your sisters machine assuming it has an ethernet port have you tested it using the cable just to make sure there are no (software) firewall issues on her computer affecting access to access the internet.
Sorry I have no Nintendo DS knowledge specifically. I may try to research the issue after the router and laptop issues are resolved.
Are there any other wireless devices (computers) currently working correctly with your wireless router/access point?

That means that the connection you're trying to connect to is probably a WEP-encrypted WiFi source. The Nintendo DS Lite cannot support that format of WiFi, however Nintendo has posted a very detailed and visual step-by-step guide in how to resolve that here
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.
double check that both cable/ribbons are connected properly to the motherboard, the small thin ribbon which curls over the top of the motherboard is the one which powers and reads the touch screen so double check this!!
if this is all in fine then im sorry to say your touch screen is broken and will need replacing!
Doubtful, though I've not had one with a gimped antenna so I can't say for sure...
Probability is very high that failure to start is related to the ribbon cable(s) not being seated properly into the connector(s). This is a common issue during re-assembly. Often, these cables LOOK like they are re-seated properly - but they are not.
First suspect is the ribbon cable that passes through the hinge. Where it connects into the top board is where I encounter problems often. If this cable is not seated deeply enough into the connector - and perfectly perpendicular - your reassembled DS will NOT boot.
I always temporarily snap everything together and test boot prior to screwing everything back together. Even with care and experience I have to go back to this connector and re-seat the cable about 1 out of every 2 times.
The Nintendo DS LIte itself is in flight more or it's called "not connected". Unless you activated the Picto-Chat or any wireless games (Download Play, WiFi), the nintendo ds isnt emitting any wireless signals.
