I have wifi in my house but cant connect nintendo to wifi dont know what to do


Hi,

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:

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.

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 to work Nintendo ds wifi


  1. Turn on the Nintendo DSi
  2. Click on the wrench icon to access "System Settings."
  3. Select "Internet" on the third page of System Settings.
  4. Select "Connection Settings" and tap the "None" bar in "Connection 1."
  5. You have the option of setting up a connection manually, or searching for available connections in the area. You may also access your Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connector, if you have one (the product has been discontinued). The easiest thing to do is select "Search for an Access Point."
  6. Your Nintendo DSi will list the names of any wireless access points in range. A gold, unlocked icon next to the connection's name signifies an unlocked WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) connection that can be accessed immediately. A locked gold icon signifies an encrypted WEP connection that requires a WEP key (password).
  7. If you are accessing a locked/encrypted connection, enter your WEP key. You may also click "Change Security Settings" to enter a WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) key.
  8. If your WEP key is correct, your Nintendo DSi should connect. You can test your connection to verify.
  9. You're set! Now you can surf the Internet, purchase games and add-ons in the Nintendo DSi Shop, and play games that allow wireless access and competition (with WEP connections, only).

How do you "Connect to nintendo wi-fi connection"


Hi there.
    • Turn on your DS and navigate to the WiFi connection settings menu. On a DSi, click the wrench icon, navigate to the third page of options and select "Internet." On an original DS or DS Lite, select "Edit WiFi Settings" from the in-game menu. The game must be WiFi compatible to access the WiFi settings menu.
    • Select "Connection Settings."
    • Choose an open connection slot, which will be indicated by the word "None" next to the connection number
    • Select "Search for an Access Point."
    • Select your wireless network from the list displayed. Enter the wireless encryption code for your network with the onscreen keyboard.
    • Select "OK" when prompted to save your settings and establish a connection with the network.
    Let me know if you have further questions.
Thank you!

I'm currently trying to connect my DS Lite to my home network. The router I'm trying to connect it to is a MAC router, and when I search for an access point, my DS does pick up that my router is there-...


The DS does not support the WPA encryption scheme; which is the only secure encryption scheme available. You could temporarily degrade the security in the router's admin page to WEP, though I would recommend you use public wifi when you have to, and keep yours secure.

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.

    I have a nintendo ds and i have nintendo wifi but in gts it said ihad no connection and it sent me to this website help


    Hi,
    You must either have broadband internet access and a wireless router or you can connect your Nintendo DSi at a hotspot, such as a library or coffee shop that offers internet access.
    1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and click on the wrench icon. This will take you to the system settings.
    2. Go to page 3 and select "Internet".
    3. Click "Connection Settings".
    4. Click "None" to the right of "Connection 1".
    5. Click "Search for an Access Point".
    6. Look for an access point that has a gold lock that is unlocked. Select that access point and your Nintendo DSi should now be connected.
    7. If you are planning on playing games online with your Nintendo DSi and have WPA security, you will have to set your router to WEP security.
    8. To do this, get back to the "Connection Settings" screen mentioned in step 4.

      Click "Advanced Setup".

      Click any button that says "none".

      Click "Search for an Access Point".

      Look for an access point that has a gold lock that is unlocked. Select that access point and your Nintendo DSi should now be connected.
    Thanks for using Fixya.
    Good Luck and have a nice day.

    Pokemon wifi issue..cannot trade pokemon


    If you have a wireless router for your internet you should have wifi in your house. To enable wifi on your nintendo ds. Insert the pokemon game and let it start up until you get to the main starter menu where it says New Game, Continue, Mystery Gift(If you unlocked it), and Nintendo WFC Settings. click the Nintendo WFC Settings than Nintendo WiFi- Connetion Settings. It will give you 3 tabs to set up your connections. If you already have 3, delete one
    Once you click an empty one click Search for an Access Point, It should search for about 5-10 seconds than show you what connections you have and their names. Also an impotertant tip, If your internet router is locked you might want to get that key so you can enable the ds to use the internet otherwise it won't be able to connect.
