Hello and welcome to Fixya.

You need to make sure that the computers network settings are on automatic.
Lets start with that. Press start, then control panel, then classic view (optional) Find Network connections from the list. Double click to open.

Now you should be on Network connections window, you should see the wireless card, and its name somewhere on that page when it is connected to the computer.

Right click on the wireless and select properties. Then on the page that opens click on internet protocol (TCP/IP) and then click on properties.

Make sure all the settings there are on automatic. then click OK, and again, then you can close the window, and try reconnecting to the wireless network.

If you are still unable to get online, restart the computer. If you are still unable to get online. The issue is most likely not the computer, the issue could be the wireless router.

do you have any other computers in the house that use wireless, do they work?

You may have to connect to the configuration page of the wireless router and make sure its mode is routing, not bridging.

But I would need more information about your network, its set up, what devices there are, your internet type, etc to give a proper response and how to solve the issue.

What does wep mean in nintendo wi-fi conection

WEP is a type of encryption that can be put on your wifi connection. You would use a WEP encryption key if that is the type of encryption your router supports. You will have to check your routers settings to see what type of encryption you are using to connection your DS to wifi and to get your encryption key, which is like a password to your wifi.

all the encryption softwares use different encryption algorithm.i.e. different steps to encode a file.
the other software shows that the file was not encrypted because for this software, you previously encrypted file is an original file and not encrypted file.
to decrypt the file you need that very encryption software that you used earlier.

I want activate the WEP,WPA, OR WPA2 i DONT UNDERSTAND THE PRODUCT MANUAL. I woul like have your support. Salvador Tinajero

Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the router by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (

Click here if you cannot access the web-based configuration.

Step 2 Enter your username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Click OK . Click the Home tab and click the Wireless button on the left hand side of the screen.

Step 3 Select Enable next to the WEP radio buttons. For WEP encryption select 64, 128, or 256-bit encryption. For the Key type select HEX. If you have an option for Authentication type, select Shared Key.

Step 4 Select Key 1. Enter a Hex encryption key that you make up. The length of the encryption key will depend on what you selected under WEP Encryption.

  • 64-bit encryption 10 characters
  • 128-bit encryption 26 characters
  • 256-bit encryption 58 characters (available on DI-614+ only)

  • The encryption key is HEX, meaning 0-9 and A-F are valid characters. For example, A4583DFF1A (64-bit HEX key).

    Step 5 Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings.

    Note: If using non-D-Link adapters, please refer to the manufacturer´s documentation on enabling encryption. Note: Not all D-Link routers, print servers and access points have a web-based configuration utility. Please check the manual for your particular product. In particular, the DWL-900AP does not have a web utility while the DWL-900AP+ does have a web utility. You cannot gain web-based configuration utility functionality for the DWL-900AP by installing the DWL900AP+ utility.

    When entering the IP address of the D-Link device ( for example), you are not connecting to a website on the Internet or have to be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility built-in to a ROM chip in the device itself. Your computer must be on the same IP subnet to connect to the web-based utility.

    I have a netgear router and only two computers can connect to the internet. My other two computers cannot connect. We type in the network password key and everything, but still no connection.

    Try connecting computers via ethernet and see what happens.

    Try changing Netgear wifi channel to 6 or 8

    Try removing encryption and seeing what happens

    If it works use a simple WEP 64 bit code

    Try removing all wifi entries from your wifi software and starting afresh - too many conflicting entries confuse the system

    Accessing encrypted wireless network

    Hi Mike,

    The password is only used in conjunction with the username when accessing the router via its web interface at At default, the username is "admin" and the password is 

    none/blank. Initially, to acces some ISPs, the DLink would also ask for a password but once set will never ask again except when a reset is done.

    On the old PC with the D-Link DWL -G122:
    1. there is no need for a network key since you are not using one (as you posted) and therefore should be set to Open/Disabled/Not used;
    2. When you installed the software from the CD that came with  the D-Link USB wireless adapter on the old PC, other than the usual driver, it is highly possible that another software was installed. This is the DLink Configuration Utility which should be used to configure/connect the G122 rather than the built-in Windows WiFi Configuration. You can verify if this was installed under your Start/All Programs/D-Link Air USB/D-Link Air Utility. If present, use this to initially configure the G122.

    hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.

    Good luck and kind regards.
