The Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite are not compatible with WPA security. If you would still like to connect your Nintendo DS online, you will need to either change your router's security to WEP, or disable security entirely. Please note that any changes you make will affect other devices that connect wirelessly to your router.

We don't have a security key for the nintendo Dsi and how do you get one?


I have never heard of this problem. I didn't know they HAD security keys. It is likely referring to your network security key. Depending on the setup, your key can be located in different places. In most cases, however, it is on a sticker on the router somewhere, under the heading WEP key or something like that.

What is the wep key


A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks. WEP keys allow a group of devices on a local network (such as a home network) to exchange encoded messages with each other while hiding the contents of the messages from easy viewing by outsiders. A WEP key is a sequence of hexadecimal digits. These digits include the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F. Some examples of WEP keys are:
  • 1A648C9FE2
  • 99D767BAC38EA23B0C0176D15
WEP keys are chosen by a network administrator. WEP keys are set on Wi-Fi routers, adapters and other wireless network devices. Matching WEP keys must be set on each device for them to communicate with each other. The length of a WEP key depends on the type of WEP security (called "encryption") utilized:
  • 40- / 64-bit WEP: 10 digit key
  • 104- / 128-bit WEP: 26 digit key
  • 256-bit WEP: 58 digit key

What is the WEP key


Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is an older network security method that's still available to support older devices, but it's no longer recommended. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. However, WEP security is relatively easy to crack. f4008eb.jpg

Can't connect the artisan 800 to our wireless network


To add the printer to your wireless network, you need to know the name (SSID)
of your wireless network. If it has security enabled, you also need to know the
WEP key or passphrase. Write down the SSID and WEP key or passphrase below:
■ Network name (SSID): _________________________________________
■ WEP key or passphrase: _________________________________________
Note:
If the WEP key is either 5 or 13 characters, it’s ASCII. If the WEP key is either 10 or 26
characters, it’s hexadecimal. The default WEP key is usually 1.
If your passphrase contains upper- or lowercase letters, be sure to note it correctly.
The printer supports the following wireless security modes: WEP 64, WEP 128, and
WPA-PSK.
If you don’t know your wireless network name (SSID) or WEP key or passphrase,
contact the person who set up your wireless network before you begin.


Insert the printer software CD.
2. Windows Vista®: If you see the AutoPlay window, click Run Epsetup.exe.
When you see the User Account Control screen, click Continue.
Windows® XP: When you see the Software installation screen, continue with
step 3.
Mac OS® X: Double-click the icon.
3. Click Install.

1.Make sure that the printer is turned on.
2. When you see the FireWall Warning screen, click Next.
3.Make sure you connected the Ethernet cable

Securing my wifi network


Hi George,

Simply open your Internet browser, in the address line, inset 192.168.0.1, then:
-> Goto TOOLS

Here you set the administrator password, note that you have to set the same password twice.

Do set some security as well, other vice your neighbor will use your network, - and that you don’t want, as you don’t know what and where he go on the internet.

On page 27 in your manual, you find the way to set the wireless settings.

On page 37 in your manual, you find a way to set MAC address settings. Thise settings allow only those MAC addresses as you put in the table.
You find your own MAC address like this:
->Start->run->write cmd and hit enter; a black DOS window open, write ipconfig /all (note the space before /all). Here you find your MAC address – note that there is two cards in your laptop, and the card you want the MAC address for is the wireless card.
