My WiFi problem

Alright, im able to use it by myself on my PC which is connected by cable, but my Nintendo DS Lite and my sis's PC(Vista) is not able to. we don't have an extra cable so my sis has to wirelessly connect. My DS has the same problem. Im able to detect the Access Point but cant access the internet. I cant troubleshoot it anymore since i have ran out solutions.

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 wireless capablity.

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?

I cant haave internet on my ds lite

Nintendo DS handhelds will not work with WPA wireless encryption, only with WEP, or with unprotected wifi networks (not advised).
Check your router settings to see if they conform with the encryption allowed with the DS.

The wifi on my nintendo ds lite doesn't work even though i changed the settings to WEP ..i dont know if the wep key i type in on my DS is wrong because when i type in the wep key shown on the netgear...

Welcome to Fixya

First you need to check is if the WEP key that you are entering is the WEP key of your router. Try to connect a laptop to your computer which do not belong to the network. Say, your friends laptop. This laptop will ask for a security key if it's the first time to connect to the network. Enter your security key and see if the laptop can connect to the network. If it did not connect then the problem is your WEP key.

Have a good one!

How can i get wi-fi connection for my nintendo ds

Please see the link here below for a step by step setup.
Please be aware that the Nintendo DS only accept a security key (Password for the WiFi) type WEP. If your router is setup for WPA or newer you will not be able to go online.

Please let me know if you need additional help.

Best regards

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 am trying to get wifi on my nintendo ds lite ,

The DS's Wi-Fi capabilities are not up to par and can unfortunately be a little fickle sometimes, and many people would rather buy another wi-fi device before trying to set it up, but if you do want to attempt to obtain your wep key so you can have wi-fi I am happy to assist you.
What you must do is get on to a computer that is hooked up to your wireless modem. From there you should be able to bring up on your system settings the information about the modem. Depending on what type of modem it is, you may have to flip through the more advanced information to find the wep address.
Once you do, you will have to put that code into the DS and pray that it works, because much of the time your DS will still not be able to connect.

Is my router able to connect to nintendo wifi on the ds system

Yes. If you enter the routers information into your DS, the DS will connect to the router and have access to the internet.

Nintendo DS vs. ActionTec GT704WG

Your DS may need another connection that is only blocked with a red lock. (Meaning WEP code locked.) If so, phone a computer tech support to help you set a connection with Wifi (wireless connection) and ask him/ her to set it to WEP code and "blocked". Then ask them to temporarily leave while you set your WEP password. A grey lock means that your DS is not compatible to your access point.

Nintendo Wi-fi Connector Problem

nintendo ds should work with most routers it's just the set thats a problem, once the wifi game is in go to wifi connection one settings,then where it says auto obtain ip address click no, then edit,then use an ip address that is the next digit up from your pc or your router eg, if your routers ip address is this is what you would type in your internet browser to get into the router settings), the next digit used by a pc would be, so use or above incase you have more than one pc. Next is the subnet mask which should again be as the routers subnet mask which will more than likely be, press edit and enter that number Next is the gateway setting, press edit, this is the same number of your routers own ip address as mentioned earlier this is the ip address you type to get into the router eg next is auto obtain DNS, again click no, then on the primary address click edit and again enter your routers own ip address. next is secondary DNS, again click edit and again enter your routers ip address, then click save settings. You should now be able to connect to your router and the wifi connection at nintendo server.
