Go to your router's settings and look for the security option/WEP key. You'll have it listed in the settings or something. I'm not familar with routers/computers, but I think this is where you'll find it. HOPE IT HELPS!

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).

  1. Tap on your network name to select it.

  1. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." The Nintendo DS will run a connection test with your wireless router.
  • The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DS is now connected online and you can enjoy the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection features of the game!
  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
    • Error Code 51300: This means the security code or network name entered into the Nintendo DS is not the same one the router is set to. To reach your connection settings, click "back" on the error code screen. Make sure to pay extra attention to the security key you find in your router's settings and enter it exactly as it appears (the key is case sensitive).

The Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite are not compatible with WPA security.

Please note that any changes you make will affect other devices that connect wirelessly to your router.

The access point's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS


WEP and WPA are types of security that are used to protect home wireless networks. WEP is the only security setting that works with the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite. WPA and WEP are both compatible with the Nintendo DSi. If you are not sure how to find your router's WEP or WPA Key or if you have problems entering it into your Nintendo DS, try the following tips:
so if your wifi is WPA. you wont be able to use wireless
but if your wifi is WEP you can.
WEP is not recommended because it is not secure. Easy to hack

When I try to set a connection on my new Nintendo DSi, I get Error Code: 051300-1. We are using Netcomm NB9W router for wireless connection to Internet. i haven't found any suitable solution as yet....


Error Code: 051300 Our experience has shown that this error message is typically caused by WEP Key issues. Please read the following information:

  • Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
    1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router Configuration page.
    2. Use the drop-down box on the left to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
    3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
    4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."



  • Are you using WEP security on your router?
    1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
    2. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    3. The WEP key is case sensitive, so be sure to enter it exactly as it appears.
    4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (1-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
    6. Verify they are using the WEP Key in the first (#1) slot. Even though your router may have multiple slots, the Nintendo DS is only compatible with the WEP Key in slot #1.


  • Check to see if your router is using MAC filtering.
    1. Log into the router using the default IP.
    2. Find the section for MAC Filtering (typically under "Security").
    3. If MAC Filtering is on ("enabled"), enter the Nintendo DS’s MAC address to the list of approved MAC address. For info on locating the DS’s MAC address, click here. For instructions on how to find the MAC address for Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL, click here.
      (For assistance with locating the MAC Filtering section of your router's setup tool, please consult the router's manual or contact the manufacturer.)


  • When using connection files 1,2, or 3 on any Nintendo DS system:Check to see if your router is set to "g only" mode. In order to work with the Nintendo DS, the router must be set to "mixed" or "b and g".

Every time i try to set up wifi, it asks for a wep key.


The WEP key is a security key used by your wireless internet device (usually a router). Do you know who set up your wireless internet? If so they should be able to provide you with the WEP key.
