First do have your own rooter dont you?

the way you explain this problem sounds like you just logged onto which ever connection you found! did you or afamily member set up a commection using belkin54g?

back to basics!
in order to connect to the net with any device...PC (if you dont have a pc how did you send this post?)...Wii PS3 first you need to install and connect to your own internet connection device i.e.ASDL Broadband it what you want

lol it sounds like you've been useing your next door neighbour's unsecured internet connection...nice cheap way to get connected.....but a bit of a bummer when text door go on holiday
i suggest setting up your own rooter (withyour own password)

How do I get my Internet access to work on my nintendo dsi XL

Hi Looneychrist,
Let me help you log-in to the internet.
Here's how you do it:
-Go to System Settings by clicking on the wrench icon
-Select "Internet."
-Choose "Connection Settings."
-Click on "None" for "Connection 1." ( If you dont see "none" for connection 1, then choose "Clear Settings.")
-Click on "Search for an Access Point."( Once it is finished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks that it finds.Look for your wireless network- it will ask for your router Password)
- Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." Your unit will run a connection test. You can disregard the support code as long as you see "Connection Test successful".
There you go, you are already online.
Enjoy surfing my fellow electronics enthusiast.
All the best to you.

Need internet connection

HI. Welcome to Fixya!

First of all you need to have an broadband internet connection or a wireless router for this to work.
I will provide you the step by step procedure on how to connect your NIntendo DSi to an internet.

1. Turn on your DSi and click on the system settings (If you don't know where the system settings is, it's the wrench icon)


2. Go to page number 3 and select "INTERNET"




4. Click on "NONE" for Connection 1



6. The Nintendo DSi will now search for available wireless connections. Once it's done searching it will show you the internet connections available. Look for your internet connection and click on it. It will now connect you to the internet.

I hope this helped solved your problem.

Hi, i just purcchased a wireless internet mod. from sprint, i have a willess for my xbox already, i got the internet up and running, but when i went to connect the wireless to pc so i could join xbox live...


I apologize but your description is a little confusing. You state you are trying to connect the xbox to the wireless connection through your PC?

If you are trying to connect your xbox to the internet through your wireless router but it ask for a WPA key, you will need to enter this key in order to gain internet access. If you do not know they key, you will need to access your router configuration page, log in and reset or generate the key.

You can do this by following the steps below.
Open up your internet browser on your PC and go to your gateway IP address. This will usually be A log in window should come up and you will need to log in. Once you log in, there should be a section for wireless internet settings/security. You will be able to add the pass key or reset it.

If this is not your wireless internet connection(this is a neighbors internet) then they will have to give you the pass key.

How do you hook up a playstaion 3 to the internet?

first off make sure you have a wireless router. if you do then you simply need to go to network settings at the main menu, search for your router and it should automatically connect. you might have to add a password if you have security settings on your router.

Cant get on psn

Hi, I had this same problem with my ps3. A solution is because your router does not emit a wireless connection succesfully. Try switching routers. You can go to best buy and buy a new one, if it doesn't work, you always have a 30 money back guarantee and you can return it.

im sorry but you might have to be a bit more specific. I dont think u can update a ds game. and u cant connect it to the computer. the possible putcome i gathered from that is that he wants to play his game online and trade pokemon etc. meaning u need to connect the ds to your computer wirelessly using a
-nintendo wi-fi usb connector-( a usb drive u basically plug into ur computer and gives off internet for nintendo products) or a -wireless router or modem- ( the black box that the cables go through for internet).

When your grandson plays the game and wants to go online, (i will explain how to use this using directions in the game)
1. turn on the ds and load the game
2. watch the introduction movie (shiny pokemon)
3. on the main screen where you decide to either continue, new game, or -NINTENDO WFC SETTINGS-, go to nintendo wfc settings
4.tap the blue box labelled nintendo wi-fi connection settings
5.if ur using a Wi-fi usb tap connect to wifi usb or if using wireless internet tap a blank connection square
6. follow the prompts for the wifi usb and u will be connected to the internet
7. for wireless internet, tap search for an access point
8. when it has found the wireless internet tap O.K/connect/next etc and follow the prompts
9.when thats connected return to pokemon Diamond main screen then tap new game/continue to play
10. walk to the pokemon centre and go downstairs to battle online - or go into a house in
(Jublife city?) to trade pokemon online

WOAH!! that was a lot of writing!
hope i helped plz make a comment or something if u need my help again

I cant log in. PLEASE help me.

I guessing you live close to a neighbor that has an unsecured wireless network. It is possible that they changed their security settings to block out other IP addresses (meaning your PS3). The best solution would be to establish your own internet connection and/or wireless network thru a local broadband internet provider.
