How do you get the internet on this my says no compatible access point in range check your connection setting under internet opion and try again error code 051099


Unable to use your wireless signal
Likely cause: It appears that the settings entered into the Nintendo DS are not compatible, or the router's broadcast settings should be changed.
How to fix: Try creating a new connection with your system. Nintendo DSi owners trying to play multiplayer games will want to be sure to read the "Trying to play online multiplayer with Nintendo DSi."

  1. Create a new connection: This error can occur if a setting (like your network's name) has changed since you last connected. If it's been awhile since you connected, or if this is your first time connecting, creating a new connection file will often resolve this error code. Click the button below for your system and we'll walk you through the connection step-by-step.

Trying to play online multiplayer with Nintendo DSi
Even if you are able to connect online and use other online features of the Nintendo DSi, if you are attempting to play multiplayer games but are receiving error code 51099 when you try and connect, then your router is likely using a security type - WPA - that is not compatible with Nintendo DS Game Cards.
Try this:
If you are sure you are using WPA, click here for more information including alternative connection methods. If you're not sure if you're using WPA, you can find out by going into the connection settings on your Nintendo DSi and doing a search for an access point. Follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and access the System Settings by clicking on the wrench icon

mr_fix3er_4.png 6-The Nintendo DSi will search for any wireless networks within range. Once it is finished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks it finds. Look for your wireless network.

7-What to do next will depend on the "lock" icon you see next to your network on the Nintendo DSi.


mr_fix3er_5.png No security - This connection type is compatible with Nintendo DS Game Card online multiplayer.

mr_fix3er_6.pngWEP - This connection type is compatible with Nintendo DS Game Card online multiplayer.

mr_fix3er_7.pngWPA - This connection type is not compatible with Nintendo DS Game Card online multiplayer. Security will need to be changed to WEP or turned off in order to play online. Click here for more info.

  • Other suggestions :
  • Make sure your router is set to broadcast in "b" or "mixed" mode. If your wireless router is transmitting in "N" only mode, you will need to switch it to "b/g" or "mixed" mode. For help accessing your router's settings, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). Most routers will have this setting in the "broadcast settings" menu.
    • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Nintendo DS. To help minimize wireless interference, try the following:
      • Make sure other wireless devices such as cordless phones or wireless speakers are turned off, and that the Nintendo DS is an open area without objects or electronics blocking the signal.
      • Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is found in the "Broadcast Channel:" area.

    I play NHL09 online with my PS3. I have Comcast


    I think you may find that this will be entirely your isp. do you have a particular broadband cap and have you used it all? have you tried it with any success with any other online multiplayer games? One thing you can try is to hardwire your ps3 to your router and see how you go

    Connection interuptted wen playing online!


    I am guessing the PS3 is hooked up through a router, either wired or wirelessly. You need to browse the router setup for the IP address of the PS3, then put the IP of the PS3 into the DMZ, also in the router setup. This should clear up any connection problems

    Do an internet connection test. Your NAT type should be either 1 or 2. If not then there are some restricted ports on your router.

    I find that putting your PS3 in your router's DMZ (demilitarized zone), solves all connection problems.

    Connecting online Madden 08 ps2


    I experienced the same problem. I have the ps2 slim. The problem was so bad that i had the slim for about 3 years and still could not play any ea games online. About 2 months ago i finally got it to work though, allowing me to play madden ncaa and many other sports games from ea. I also have dsl broadband just like you. I do not have a router though. I just hooked my ethernet cord straight into the back on the ps2, my computer is really close by. I would reccomend a router though.

    Enough of this bs though. Now solving the problem. There was actually a firewall keeping me from connecting to ea servers. Which in turn meant no ea account and no ea play online. Go onto your computer and turn your FIREWALLS OFF. This still may not work though. I done this and an unknown firewall was still blocking it. THERE WAS A FIREWALL IN MY MODEM.
    CALL UP YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PEOPLE AND TELL THEM TO TAKE THE ******* THING OFF SO U CAN ******* PLAY. I ALSO FOUND THAT LIMEWIRE WOULD NOW WORK ON MY COMPUTER AS WELL.
    By doing this you will open peer to peer connections with other programs and players online.
