Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password


Thanks for using Fixya.

If it is not working for your DSI, try going to your routers website and downloading a firmware update that would update it to version 4 (v4) and then your DSI should work!

We have a nintendo dsixl. we also have a cisco n router that works fine with our hp laptop. we can not get the ds to pick up a signal or if it picks up a signal it is very weak and disconnects quickly....


If the internal wireless does not work there are a couple items to check. First make sure that the wireless router supports 802.11b, as routers that only broadcast in 802.11g or 802.11n may not be compatible. Then make sure that the DS is within proper range of a wireless router and has a signal strength of at least two bars. If trying to play a multi-player game, make sure that all DS systems are within 30 feet of each other, and that each DS has its own game card if needed. When trying to connect to a wireless router, also make sure that the correct encryption key is being used. The DS lite will also only work with WEP (Wired Encryption Protocol), because WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is not supported. The website at the bottom of this guide is a link to Nintendo's Customer Service site that has information on how to configure your specific wireless router based on its manufacture and model number. If these steps do not work, the wireless card in the DS may need to be replaced. Additionally, Nintendo has found the following routers to have known compatibility issues.
Actiontec GT704-WG
Belkin F5D7231-4 ver 1102
Belkin F5D6231-4 ver 1000
Belkin F5D7230-4 ver 4000
D-Link DI-514 ver B1
D-Link DSL-G604T
SMC SMC2804WBR-G product code: 751.7412
The following link has information about properly configuring your specific WiFi router to work with the DS.

I have recently bought a Belkin Wireless Router and I am unable to connect to the Internet on my laptop. What do I need to do to connect my laptop to the internet using the Belkin Wireless router?


your Internet modem or router needs to be connected to the Belkin router's WAN port with an ethernet cable. You'll then need to configure the belkin's wireless settings, it's usually a very easy "follow the prompts" kind of setup.

Can't connect DSi with same security as comps


hello, yes i had the same problem, but i had it with many other computers, the way i solved it was going into the router settings and click the "restore default settings" then turned the router off for 15 seconds (for a fresh reboot) then when i had to set everything up again i got all my computers on the router and im able to add more without running into that same problem once again, or for a simpler solution try disconnecting the wireless on the computers and replugging them in.... that works sometimes as well

My belkin router won;t connect to my laptop, wii, ds or dsi


Did all these devices use wireless? Or were they plugged into it?

The router may have reset itself so you might have to sign in to the router and setup the wireless again.

The PC that is hooked via ethernet, did it use the router wirelessly at all?

Try signing into the router and check the wireless security key settings etc. Reset it if you have to type in a new key and try testing the settings with one of your wireless devices to see if it works. Remember to have the device on the same key/index/channel and the same security type as is set on the router.
