First off you need to either have a wifi connection in you house or by the wifi usb connector and cd rom from nintendo ( about 20 or less if you find it used) I would recommend buying the connector because it is easier to use.

How do you "Connect to nintendo wi-fi connection"

Hi there.
    • Turn on your DS and navigate to the WiFi connection settings menu. On a DSi, click the wrench icon, navigate to the third page of options and select "Internet." On an original DS or DS Lite, select "Edit WiFi Settings" from the in-game menu. The game must be WiFi compatible to access the WiFi settings menu.
    • Select "Connection Settings."
    • Choose an open connection slot, which will be indicated by the word "None" next to the connection number
    • Select "Search for an Access Point."
    • Select your wireless network from the list displayed. Enter the wireless encryption code for your network with the onscreen keyboard.
    • Select "OK" when prompted to save your settings and establish a connection with the network.
    Let me know if you have further questions.
Thank you!

How to setup the WiFi on your Nintendo DSi

I've seen quite a few questions on this site that all say the same thing pretty much: "How do I set up Internet on my DSi?" Allow me to explain the process. It's very simple.
1. At the DSi main menu, select the "System Settings" option and touch it with your stylus or press A.
2. Tap the Right Arrow two times. You will see an option that reads "Internet". Press it.
3. Select Connection Settings in the Internet Options Menu.

4. You will see 3 connection options. Select one that says "None".

5. At this point you have three choices: Search for an Access Point, AOSS, or Manual Setup. Your best bet is to choose Search for an access point. This will scan for any available connections around you.

6. When it finishes searching, a list of connections will appear. Select the one that you are trying to connect to. You will either see an unlock icon or a locked icon. If there is a locked icon, you will need to input your security code for your Router.

7. Once the connection is selected and the password, if there is one, is inputted, the system will preform a connection test. Once the test is complete, your connection settings are saved and you are ready to access Nintendo WiFi. Happy Gaming!

One last note. Some connections have security codes that are inaccessible for standard DS and DSi's. If that happens, instead of choosing an open connection (Step 4), you will want to choose "Advanced Setup". This will allow you to access connections with higher security, but you will only be able to use DSi features (Shop and Internet mainly. No In-game WiFi). The steps to connect to those systems is the same as connecting to a lower security connection.

Can not get wifi conected

here should be a small hole in the back and inserting a paper clip will reset set it to the original settings, this is not he same as recycling. This should be explained in the manual. You'll then have to set up the router, e.g., log on, security, etc. Basically what you had to do when you first got the router. Then on the laptop run the wireless connection wizard.

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?


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.

The key is a setting from the WiFi connection your trying to use. If it is a WEP WiFi connections you need the WEP Key, which is a long string of numbers and letters. If you are using a WPA WiFi then the key will be your WPA password/passpharse. This can be found on the routers settings, or instruction manual for the router. If you have a PC or laptop that uses this connection then you would have already needed to enter the Key on there to allow you to connect.
