Im pretty sure that the security key (unless you have changed it) is one of the numbers on the bottom of the router. since i havent had this brand, i would not know specifically where it is, so i would check a few of the numbers till you find it, and if not, you might just reset the router, then try again.

Ssid number


Its the NAME usually in the letter from your broadband provider, a seperate card or a sticky label on the back or base of the router

Wireless Network
Name (SSID) WillyWombat785837
Key: 1234ABcD

Click on the SSID in your list of wifi networks and put in your KEY remembering to put the Case in correctly when it asks for password (confusing, wish they asked for key rather than password)

Good luck

I need internet on my dsi


Well, have you done the homework?

1. DSI needs WiFi, ie, wireless internet. Do you have a wireless router or wireless modem router in your place?
2. If yes, have you enabled the wireless radio in the router. This can be done by opening up the router options by typing the IP Address of the router (it should be somewhere written in the router itself) and login. If you don't know the password, google your model number and you will get all information like default ip address, login etc. If possible download the manual from the manufacturer website and go through it to familiarize the options. (If you have an apple router, you will need "airport utility"..google).
3. Once logged in as "admin", look for "wireless" options (Manual will help you), enable "radio", "ssid", note down the ssid name, and for troubleshooting purposes, leave the security "off/disabled". Save/apply changes.
4. Make sure wireless "G" is selected or a mode thats compatible with wireless "G" (go through the options, mostly default option will suffice). If this is in another page, again, save or apply changes.
5. Reboot the router, wait for a couple of minutes till the lights for internet and wireless appears.
6. From DSI, search for available networks, find the ssid name that you have noted down and click connect.
7. Hopefully, it should connect, otherwise, you may have to manually enter DSI IP Adress, subnet mask (255.255.255.0), gateway and dns servers (both router IP Adress). If your router address is, say 192.168.1.1, then give dsi an ip adress 192.168.1.xx where xx is a number between 2 and 255. That is, what ever ur router ip address is, just change the last digits to anything under 255, excluding the router address. Now try again, hopefully everything should be settled.
8. Look into DSI manual to see whether it supports wpa/wpa2 security or just WEP. You may also have to take into consideration any other devices that connect to router wirelessy, like laptops, smart phones, tablets etc. If all of them supports wpa/wpa2, go back to router options and select that security, create password, write it down. Otherwise select "WEP" encrryption. (The point to remember here is the lowest common denominator, ie, if DSI supports only WEP, selecting WPA/WPA2 will be useless, as DSI will not connect, even if it sees the SSID.
9. Save changes, reboot router, wait for lights to steady.
10. From DSI, again select your SSID name from available networks (just to make things easier, shut down DSI, restart to disconnect earlier connections), it will ask for password or both password and security type. If DSi supports WPA/WPA2, and ur security is set as such, and DSI is not connecting, play with the options, if any, like "WPA only", WPA2 only" WPA/WPA2" and try to connect.

You should succeed with this much details. Good luck

Trying to get dsi to connect to the internet by using the 10 digit # on bottom on internet box as the ssid not working is this not the correct #?


The SSID is not the WEP key, it is the network name of your wireless network. If you haven't change it at all, then you will be able to see there the WEP key itself, it is case sensitive so make sure if it is in upper case, please do so. If you had change it before, then the new WEP key should be the one that you put on the WEP key box, you can check it by accessing the GUI of your modem or router from your pc and you can check it from there if the WEP key is different from the one you have in hand.

I am trying to get a connection to the enternet how do i do it and what is the ip address and security code and ssid


Sounds like you are trying to set up the connection manually. Try having the DS set it up automatically first. If that still does not work, the SSID is the name of your wireless network, the "security code" is your network's password. Try setting the IP to "auto obtain" to have it set up automatically.

NINTENDO DSI XL NEED HELP TRYING TO CONNECT THE INTERNET TO DSI


Welcome to Fixya Nintendo Dsi/DS/Ds XL connects to the internet using wireless connection. You need to know the settings of your router. Below are the steps on how you will access the router and to obtain the information needed for you to be connected.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and theNetwork Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remeber the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we already know the setting of the router then its now time to connect the Dsi to the network.

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reson why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection.
Thank you for using FIxya!

Internet access on the nintendo DSI is saying no compatible access point in range check your connection settings under the internet option and try again error code 051099 we dont know the ssid code to...


The nintendo dsi needs a wireless router transmitting in MIXED mode, meaning that it transmits using B mode as well as G or for newer routers N mode. If it is setup to transmit in G or N only, then the DSI will not detect it.

Also, the DSI is not compatible with WPA security. You need to set up a weaker WEP security code or turn off wifi security altogether.

Also, make sure the router is broadcasting the SSID name which is the name of the wireless router.

Cant seem to connect to WFC for a dsi game


Hi gabrielsa544,

Welcome to Fixya. Nintendo Dsi/DS/Ds XL connects to the internet using wireless connection. You need to know the settings of your router. I've listed below the steps on how you will access the router and to obtain the information needed for you to be connected.


How to access the Router:

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab check you Network Name or SSID. On the Security Mode you can check the security if you're using either WEP or WPA. Then you need to remember the Netowrk Key you can also personalize your Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure. Then Save the settings

Take Note of the SSID and the Network Key


Now that we already know the setting of the router then its now time to connect the Dsi to the network.

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

Dsi wi-fi not work


Make sure you have the correct SSID name and encryption password. Older DSi's had problems connecting to WPA networks. Your network needs to be WEP and cannot be set for a higher encryption. If you are on WPA Nintendo has released an update recently which allows access to WPA networks, the key though is you need to get online first to upgrade your DSi so go to WEP first then upgrade to WPA.

I hope this helps!
