In my pokemon white game i by accents erase nintendo wfc configuration and i forgot how to do it again so can you help me

To configure your internet options, go to the DS menu (the first screen you seen after turning of the DS). Select the System Settins option (the wrench icon), then scroll across 'till you find the Internet
choice. Select that and then Connection Settins. Choose Advanced Set Up then pick a connection.
If all connections display Set Up Complete , pick one and select the Connection Test. If there is an previously used Wifi hub or router within range, one of these connections should connect. If not, it will give you an error code that will help identify the problem.

If all the connections say None, then choose one and select Search For An Access Point. If all the connections are taken but none work, select one then choose Clear Settings. Then choose the connection that now says None and search for an access point.The DS will show a list of available access points; one should be your's. Select in and enter the security key and that should sort it. If your router or wifi hub isn't on the list, move closer to it or check it's working properly

How do i get internet on my nintendo DS

insert any game that has a wifi playing mode. attempt to start the wifi connection in the game, there should then be a wifi connection setting option. go into that. scan for an access point. then configure your router settings accordingly on the DS allowing it access to your router and then it should work! keep in mind that this is how you connect with a wireless router. this video might be more clear than my typing :)

I'm trying to connect to my wifi in my house on my nintendo ds but every time I try it says the access points security settings are not supported for nintendo ds, what should I do?

The security settings on your wireless network's router aren't compatible with the DS. You can change the settings, but then you will have to adjust it for all other devices that use your wireless network. Here is a link to Nintendo's customer service site describing the issue in more detail.

Can't get wifi on ds even though I have wireless router and play online with my ps3 all the time!

Some possibilities are
Your DS could be at a different frequency to the router and can not pick up the wireless signal.
The security encryption type is not supported by the DS that you are using to secure the network
Try and change some settings round in your router setup
Also the wireless could be faulty

We have a nintendo dsixl. we also have a cisco n router that works fine with our hp laptop. we can not get the ds to pick up a signal or if it picks up a signal it is very weak and disconnects quickly....

If the internal wireless does not work there are a couple items to check. First make sure that the wireless router supports 802.11b, as routers that only broadcast in 802.11g or 802.11n may not be compatible. Then make sure that the DS is within proper range of a wireless router and has a signal strength of at least two bars. If trying to play a multi-player game, make sure that all DS systems are within 30 feet of each other, and that each DS has its own game card if needed. When trying to connect to a wireless router, also make sure that the correct encryption key is being used. The DS lite will also only work with WEP (Wired Encryption Protocol), because WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is not supported. The website at the bottom of this guide is a link to Nintendo's Customer Service site that has information on how to configure your specific wireless router based on its manufacture and model number. If these steps do not work, the wireless card in the DS may need to be replaced. Additionally, Nintendo has found the following routers to have known compatibility issues.
Actiontec GT704-WG
Belkin F5D7231-4 ver 1102
Belkin F5D6231-4 ver 1000
Belkin F5D7230-4 ver 4000
D-Link DI-514 ver B1
D-Link DSL-G604T
SMC SMC2804WBR-G product code: 751.7412
The following link has information about properly configuring your specific WiFi router to work with the DS.

How to get wifi

Hi. Please see procedure below:

  • When you try to connect your Nintendo DS on the internet, here are the steps that occur:
  • You choose the option "Search for access point".
  • The choices are given.
  • If the access point is in the form of a closed padlock gray, and the message "Security settings incompatible with the Ds" message, it means that your router is configured with security settings that the Nintendo DS does not support (WPA, WPA2, etc..).
  • The only solution is to configure your router to WEP because it is the only security that the console recognizes.

    What is the Nintendo DS WEP code?

    WEP code is nothing but the security key for the wireless network. You will need to check the settings of the router. Do you have any computer connected to the router or any computer going online using the router. You can open the set up page of the router and check the settigns of the router. You will find the WEP code on the router page.

    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.
