Question about Nintendo DSi Black Console

WPA router connecting to DSI

I have a WPA encrypted router so can't seem to connect the DSi games as they don't support WPA only WEP. Is there any way around this? If I got a USB WiFi connecter could I bypass the syseme through my pc?

If you have the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector, you should be able to bypass the WPA encryption. The Nintendo USB has it's own setup options in the settings menu under "Internet". Only other option would be to lower the security encryption to either a WPA or WEP.

Good Luck

I seem to be having problems connecting wi fi from the dsi console to this router although theres no problem connecting to mobile phones. how can i make a connection?


Are you sure that you are using the type of wireless encryption supported by your DSi? Some devices can only connect to a WEP environment and others use only WPA encryption.

I can't connect to the internet


  1. Turn on the Nintendo DSi
  2. Click on the wrench icon to access "System Settings."
  3. Select "Internet" on the third page of System Settings.
  4. Select "Connection Settings" and tap the "None" bar in "Connection 1."
  5. You have the option of setting up a connection manually, or searching for available connections in the area. You may also access your Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connector, if you have one (the product has been discontinued). The easiest thing to do is select "Search for an Access Point."
  6. Your Nintendo DSi will list the names of any wireless access points in range. A gold, unlocked icon next to the connection's name signifies an unlocked WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) connection that can be accessed immediately. A locked gold icon signifies an encrypted WEP connection that requires a WEP key (password).
  7. If you are accessing a locked/encrypted connection, enter your WEP key. You may also click "Change Security Settings" to enter a WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) key.
  8. If your WEP key is correct, your Nintendo DSi should connect. You can test your connection to verify.
  9. You're set! Now you can surf the Internet, purchase games and add-ons in the Nintendo DSi Shop, and play games that allow wireless access and competition (with WEP connections, only).
Tips:
  1. If you need help with your router settings, visit Nintendo's router FAQ
  2. Most Nintendo DS and DSi owners can get online by searching for an access point, but some might have to resort to manual setup. Visit Nintendo's manual setup guide if you have a unique situation and need help.
  3. The Nintendo DSi can go online with a WPA connection, but actually playing DSi games online requires a WEP connection.
