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.
If after trying the steps above you are still receiving this error code, please call 1-800-255-3700 for further assistance.

Try to access the internet but keep getting error code 051300


This is a common problem, first do the basics to make sure nothing has went wrong maunally, try re-typing the password if there is one. if not. just try reconnecting.

If that does not work, this is where it starts getting a little hard but usefull, go to your router and press the reset button, fix the connecting antenna towards your dsi and then try reconnecting with your dsi very close to the router, (dont worry you dont have to stay close to the router for very long) when it connects you can move but i reccomend you stay in the same room as the router, Your welcome plz rate :D

Dsi unable to connect to internet


Are you sure that you are using the right encryption on your router because I know that it will effect you being able to access the internet. I would suggest creating a separate SSID for your router with WEP and use that to connect to the internet from your DSi. This is the fool proof method of connecting to the internet on any Nintendo DS device.

Error Code: 051099Was this information helpful?

Unable to use your wireless signal

Likely cause: It appears that the settings entered into the Nintendo DS are not compatible, or the router's broadcast settings should be changed.

How to fix: Try creating a new connection with your system. Nintendo DSi owners trying to play multiplayer games will want to be sure to read the "Trying to play online multiplayer with Nintendo DSi."

A friends iof my gave me this router, but I don't know how to install it so that i can use it with my laptop in my living room. my internet is connect to my computer in my room. My main internet is in...


You have a few options. If you already have a router, set this one up as an Wireless Access point. It pulls signals from the main router and you can connect to this one. BUT your signal could be weak depending on the distance, walls etc. If you can make a cable run, use it as a switch. (Extend your ports, and as a wireless point. Go to Cisco Linksys and download the manual.It is not difficult. Use the main router as a your DHCP and this one as a wireless point. You will need to set up the SSID and security (Securty is optional, but I would do it). Give it a SSID different then your main one and you can setup your device to connect to the one with the strongest signal (Most do this by default.

Connect the dsi to internet


If you have wireless internet router then you can connect the DSi without the use of a hotspot. Simply search for your router's name and enter the WEP code so the DSi can connect. Go to the Nintendo Wifi Setup page if you are confused. They have step by step instructions on how to configure any of their products to wifi.
