How to connect your Nintendo DSi to the internet


In this guide I will go over the steps you will need to take in order to connect your DSi to the internet. You must first be in range of a wireless access point in order to use it. If you do not have wireless internet at home, you can use local hot spots that do such as coffee shops and school libraries. <br /><br />-Turn on your DSi and click on the wrench icon which will take you to System Settings. <br />-Go to page 3 and select "Internet", and click on "Connection Settings"<br />-Click "None" to the right of "Connection 1"<br />-Click "Search for an Access Point"<br /><br />This will bring up any wireless access points within range of your DSi. Any access points that have a gold lock that is unlocked means this access point does not require a security key. If you are going to use a access point that requires a security key, you will need to enter this key in. <br /><br />-Go back to the "Connection Settings" page and select "Advanced Setup". You will then be prompted for your wireless access point security information. Enter it in here.<br /><br />Okay. You should be connected and ready to enjoy your DSi. Good luck! <br /><br />G33k

The dsi xl will not take my internet connection and i want to get on the internet can u help me please


Hi,

I wrote a tech article which goes over how to connect a DSI to the internet. Connecting to the internet is a simple process. Click here for the article.

If you are still having trouble can you provide more details on the issue? Are you getting an error when you try and connect? If the wireless router you are trying to connect to from your DSi has a security key then you need to enter this key on your DSi in order to connect.

Please comment back if you have questions.

Regards,
G33k

We're trying to set up a wi-fi connection for a Nintendo DSi. When I enter the security code for my wireless Internet connection, the DSi doesn't recognize it.


I'm think that you need to enter a code, I have attach a doc that should help you out. I found this link at Nintend.com

Asked to enter a security key? If you are prompted to "Enter the Password or Key," then the wireless network you are trying to connect to has wireless security turned on. You will need to type in your security key or password and select "OK." secureaccess.png Don't know your router's security key? Let us help you find your router's security key. Select the brand of your router below and we'll provide you with the default information for that brand! Linksys Netgear DLink Belkin Apple 2Wire All other brands

How do i connect the internet to my DSi?


  1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and access your system settings by clicking on the wrench icon.
  2. Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."
  3. Now choose "Connection Settings."
  4. Click on "None" in "Connection 1."
  5. Then click "Search for an Access Point"
The system will then display the name of any wireless access point within range.

If The access point has a gold, unlocked icon, tap the access point's name, and then "OK." The system will then establish a connection with your router.

If The access point has a gold, locked icon, the Nintendo DSi has detected WEP/WPA key security on your router:
  1. Tap the Access Point name.
  2. You can either enter your WEP Key, or click "Change Security Settings" to enter a WPA key.
  3. Tap "OK" again and the system will then establish a connection with your router.
If The access point has a gray, locked icon, the system has determined your router is set to WPA security. You need to access the Advanced Setup area of the system to connect with this security method.
  • Instead of tapping "None" in "Connection 1", click "Advanced Setup", then click "None" in "Connection 5".

Error code 051099 keeps coming up.


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.
