Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access.
The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key.
The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings.
To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.
Both are security protocol which enable the owner of an wireless network to limit the acces to that network and to protect the data that runs through that network. WEP stands for WIRED EQUIVALENT PRIVACY and it' a security algorithm designed for wireless networks with the intention to provide a level of confidentiality close to the wired networks WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access and it's a security protocol designed to secure wireless networks If your wireless device discovered a network that require such keys,that means that the owner of that network secured his network,only people having acces are those who know the key. If you have a Wi-Fi router and you forgot the key ,you have to acces the configuration page of the router ,go to wireless security page and reconfigure it, by changing the key.(get the manual of the router and follow the steps)
Also check the WEP key as it may say the AP (access point) isn't there if the WEP is wrong.
Also some routers won't connect properly to the DS unless the IP,Gateway, and DNS are set manually.
If you choose to set the AP info manualy then you need to find the you AP's IP address. Commonly this would be 192.168.1.1 however it varies from one brand to another or may be changed manualy. Try these settins with the corrected IP adress number as the gateway.
IP Adress 192.168.1.152 (this is you'r DS IP adress. The 3rd digit should be the same as you gatway's 3rd digit. The fourth digit can be any number that isn't used on your network.
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
DNS Pri 192.168.1.1 DNS Sec 192.168.1.0 (Usually I set the Gateway and DNS numbers the same and it usually works. The Gateway is the IP address of your wifi router.)
If this fails and all numbers are correct, then it may be that the WiFi router will not work with the DS as some brands simply refuse to work with it for unkown reasons.
Anohter solution is to get a WiFi USB dongle and connect to that.
After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …
First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range.The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet. To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP.This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house! The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)
