The DS's Wi-Fi capabilities are not up to par and can unfortunately be a little fickle sometimes, and many people would rather buy another wi-fi device before trying to set it up, but if you do want to attempt to obtain your wep key so you can have wi-fi I am happy to assist you.
What you must do is get on to a computer that is hooked up to your wireless modem. From there you should be able to bring up on your system settings the information about the modem. Depending on what type of modem it is, you may have to flip through the more advanced information to find the wep address.
Once you do, you will have to put that code into the DS and pray that it works, because much of the time your DS will still not be able to connect.

Ds lite wi fi connect wpa


Try changing your WiFi encription to WEP or no security, this should be available on your cablemodem/router web internface (need a user and password for that) under the Wireless/Security option.

DS Lite is not compatible with any other WiFi encription for online gaming: "Important note about the Nintendo DSi and WPA security: While the Nintendo DSi is compatible with WPA security, Nintendo DS games with online play still require the use of WEP or no security to connect with the Nintendo WFC. Therefore, your connection settings for using these games must be set up on slots 1-3. If you need more details on using your adjusting your router's settings,click here and select your router (if available).

How do you connect to the internet?


If you have wifi in your area, you want to go into the settings and configure your internet connection, Nintendo includes a very helpful wizard that should get you going.
If I can get a little technical for a second: The DSi supports more Wireless security types than the original DS or DS lite. Because of that it will recognize and connect to WPA2 and WPA encryptions as well as WEP. The old DS and DS lite only supported WEP. Because of that, if you are trying to play games online, you will need WIFI that is only secured with WEP or not at all.

Connecting to Wifi at home. Error Code 51102 What


A WEP key is a Security code but for some wireless providors a WPA-TKIP or WPA"-TKIp is used instead. check your connection details to find out which one yours uses and the use the appropriate settings.
Important notes would be that if your connection is using WPA-TKIP or WPA2-TKIP then the DS or DS lite will not be able to connect because they can only use WEP keys. If the system you are using is the Nindento DSi then all you need to do is to use connections 4, 5 and 6 found in Advanced Conection Settings under the internet option in the DSi Settings menu ( remember this method is only for use with other wireless securities than WEP keys like WPA-TKIP and WPA2-TKIP.)

I put in the wep key put it doesnt let me in wifi and what is ssid how do i put wifi manualy


The Nintendo DS only supports certain types of Wireless Security, the Nintendo site specifies what version DS supports what versions of Wifi Security

An SSID is the name of your wireless network, so it's what you see when you try to connect to a wireless network at your home

to put in Wifi manually you have to put in the SSID, Wireless password, and depending on if your router is set up as manual or automatic, you may have to put in your IP Address and Subnet mask and finally you need to put in a primary DNS server, your primary DNS server IP Address is the IP Address of 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

I'm trying to connect to my wifi in my house on my nintendo ds but every time I try it says the access points security settings are not supported for nintendo ds, what should I do?


The security settings on your wireless network's router aren't compatible with the DS. You can change the settings, but then you will have to adjust it for all other devices that use your wireless network. Here is a link to Nintendo's customer service site describing the issue in more detail.

I'm wondering what the SSID is. And the WEP key. And also the IP address. I'm playing fire emblem for ds and wondering if these elements effect the connection for wifi. Thank you


SSID is the Name of your wireless Network

WEP key is the password for your wireless network

You can get these information if you contact your router manufacturer

What is the Nintendo DS WEP code?


WEP code is nothing but the security key for the wireless network. You will need to check the settings of the router. Do you have any computer connected to the router or any computer going online using the router. You can open the set up page of the router and check the settigns of the router. You will find the WEP code on the router page.

Re:-DS Lite.WiFi set-up. Asked for a Access Point. Came up. '' This access point's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS.'' ? It was accepted on my Wii?


Hi,

The DS lite only supports WEP which would have a HEX key password, if you have a pass key or pass phrase then chances are you are using WPA or WPA2 which is not supported on the DS lite.

The WEP key is an older form of security and has been found to have some weaknesses but to be honest its still secure enough for a home wifi set-up.

Here is a link to an article explaining more about the differences between the two.

You can change your settings on the wireless router, but you will then have to adjust the settings on your Wii accordingly.

If you need any further help or advice please feel free to contact me via my profile page.
