First, the obvious: make sure your game supports wireless play and read the instruction manual for details on how that works.

Then, the less obvious: the DS is only able to handle unsecured or WEP wireless security protocols, so either make sure your router is using WEP or leave it unsecured (WPA does NOT work!). Also make sure your router is not set to exclude any MAC addresses. If you need to know how to do these things, look up the manual for your router or find a more general tutorial on wireless hub settings.

Nintendo also has a very comprehensive guide on routers: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/index.jsp

If all else fails, call Nintendo's customer service... they are actually VERY nice and helpful.

Associate wireless router to my home hub


If your Home Hub is a BT type internet hub, then you can connect the WAN port to the Ethernet port on the Hub.

This means it will go through two routers. One in the Hub and another in the Edimax. The Edimax needs to be configured as a bridge, because you need to keep within the same address range as the BT router. The Edimax DHCP allocation of IP addresses need to be disabled. This is not on the web site.

There's some kind of incompatibility between your hubs settings such as the name or security settings that is incompatible with the dsi.

I would like to know what an ssid is as i am trying to connect a ds to the internet, i have the wep key


Hello,
the SSID is the name of a wireless network so it is easier to recognize. If you want to make things easy for you to connect to your wireless home network to access the internet with your DS Lite, go to your router configuration. Make sure that the SSID is set to be broadcast or visible. Make the SSID an easy name that you will remember, yet that is not too personal since everyone will be able to see it.
Then start your Nintendo DS and go to the wireless connection configuration. It will start looking for broadcast SSID and will eventually find the one of your network and list it. Select it, enter the WEP when prompted and save the connection.
You should be able to enjoy your internet connection from the DS after that.
Let me know if you encounter any issue.
Regards,

Does anyone know if you can connect ds to internet using a mobile dongle?


for internet with the ds, u dont plug anything in its all wireless. the '3' dongle gives u wireless internet which is good. to set up internet on your ds, put in a wifi compatible game, and wherever in that game there is an option for NINTENDO WFC CONNECTION (it may change, in mario kart the option is on a main screen, animal crossing talk to ppl) go into that and tap a blank internet connection box and search for an access point. when its found ur 3 internet itll connect. u can now play internet games on ur ds when ur neer that access point. hope i helped
