Error Code: 051099 This error code can occur for two different reasons:

  • You are trying to agree to the User Agreement of the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL, but are receiving error code 51099. This can occur if the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL tries to connect to Nintendo's servers to download the User Agreement, but there is no existing Internet connection setup on the system. To connect your Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL to the Internet, please click here.
  • You are trying to play a Nintendo DS game online with a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL, but your home Internet is set to WPA security. Please read the following:
There appears to be a compatibility issue with the security settings on your router:
Are you using WPA security?
    No, I am using WEP security
If you are using a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL, you will be able to connect online and use many online features with WPA security. However, you will not be able to play original Nintendo DS games that are Wi-Fi compatible, as they are only programmed to work with WEP security. In order to play these games online, you will need to do the following (If you are not receiving this error when attempting to connect games online, click here):

  • Change your wireless security to WEP or temporarily disable wireless security if you wish to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

  • If you are unable to log into your router or do not know how, you can check our router look-up page (link) to see if it is listed. If your model number is not listed, check any similar models from the same manufacturer for default information. If you are still unable to log into your router, please refer to the router manufacturer or the company that provided it.

  • Make sure your router is not on our list of incompatible routers. If it is, we recommended using a router that is compatible or co nnecting from a hotspot location.

  • The wireless security settings are typically found under sections labeled 'Wireless', 'Basic Wireless' or 'Wireless Security'.

  • Change the security mode to WEP, and chose your encryption type. The 64-bit encryption type typically uses a 10 character key while the 128-bit encryption type uses a 26 character key. Hexadecimal keys consist of letters A-F and 0-9, whereas ASCII keys have no limitations and are case sensitive. Be sure to use the key that is listed in 'key slot 1' and make sure you are not using a 'passphrase'. For specific information about changing your security type please see your router's manual or contact the manufacturer.
  • Important Note: it is recommended that any changes made to the router are performed from a computer that is wired via Ethernet cable to the router. In addition, any changes made to wireless security must also be adjusted on other wireless devices in the home that use the router (e.g. laptops, other game systems, etc). For instructions on how to change these devices, refer to the user manuals for these devices or contact the manufacturer.

  • Establish a connection in connection files 1-3 on the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL. Make sure you are putting the WEP key into the Nintendo DSi exactly as it appears on your router page.


If the error persists while using WEP (or if you are receiving this error with other Wi-Fi features), follow these steps:

  • Keep trying, as there may be a temporary network issue. If the problem persists, or has been consistent over a period of time, move on to the next step.

  • Configure the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL manually
      Please note: if your router is set to broadcast the network but the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL is not finding the access point then a manual setup will not resolve the error. There may be another problem, such as interference, or a basic setting in your router that is causing compatibility issues. Be sure that your router is set to 'Enable SSID broadcast' or 'Enable Wireless broadcast'. If you prefer to keep your network name hidden, verify the correct spelling and case of your router's SSID.

How do i set up my daughters connection for er dsi? error codes 051099-1 comes up and the dsi says: no access point in range. check your ssid settings or move closer to an access point. what do i need to...


This probably means your not connected to any wifi.

You can check for a wifi access point by following these steps

  1. Go to your dsi settings (the wrench icon)
  2. Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."
  3. now choose "connection settings"
  4. click on one of the them that says "none"
  5. Click on "Search for an Access Point."
  6. a list of wifi access points should pop up
  • The wifi connection you are connecting to must have No Security or WEP
  • If the wifi connection is WPA you will not be able to go online for games
7. Choose one of those access points to connect to and if it is secured by WEP you must put in the password for that access point.


Good luck :)

Internet access on the nintendo DSI is saying no compatible access point in range check your connection settings under the internet option and try again error code 051099 we dont know the ssid code to...


The nintendo dsi needs a wireless router transmitting in MIXED mode, meaning that it transmits using B mode as well as G or for newer routers N mode. If it is setup to transmit in G or N only, then the DSI will not detect it.

Also, the DSI is not compatible with WPA security. You need to set up a weaker WEP security code or turn off wifi security altogether.

Also, make sure the router is broadcasting the SSID name which is the name of the wireless router.
