Try changing your WiFi encription to WEP or no security, this should be available on your cablemodem/router web internface (need a user and password for that) under the Wireless/Security option.
DS Lite is not compatible with any other WiFi encription for online gaming: "Important note about the Nintendo DSi and WPA security: While the Nintendo DSi is compatible with WPA security, Nintendo DS games with online play still require the use of WEP or no security to connect with the Nintendo WFC. Therefore, your connection settings for using these games must be set up on slots 1-3. If you need more details on using your adjusting your router's settings,click here and select your router (if available).
"encription code"? Security Key? Password? If you have the wireless secured, only you have the password. You can reset it to default settings and reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. If you supply the Make, Model of wireless device, it would be helpful.
Please enter the IP address of the Router in the internet explorer and enter the user name and password of the router.(admin, admin). When the windows will open go to wireless security. In that window you can give security option and security password.
There is no way to limit the signal of the wireless connection outside of your own premise. The only possible way to prevent others from accessing your wireless network is to set a Password on your router/gateway configuration and to make the wireless name hidden or to not broadcasting mode. Your wireless name will be invisible plus all users will be asked about the password that only you knows.
You can set all this configuration by accessing the router's/gateway's GUI (Graphical user interface). You may need to contact the manufacturer of your device to know the username and password for accessing it or you may refer to your User's Manual.
Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.
type in your browser:
user name: admin
or try another...
then explore the wireless options until you can get to Wireless Encryption and choose WPA or WPA2 and type your key. this key will be entered in your laptop when you need to connect to the internet
While it is impossible to be 100% secure on a wireless network, there are several things that will help. Use the wep encription, use mac filtering and add only the addresses you want to connect. Once you have everything set up, disable broadcasting the SSID, and lastly, change the user name and password on the router. Don't forget to enable the firewall on your laptop. Amother thing you can do is go around with your laptop and map the signal range so that you have an idea where the signal limits are.
