This means you are using a newer form of wifi security

  • Note: WEP Security is the only option for multiplayer gaming on any of the Nintendo DS systems.
    WEP - If you wish to secure your wireless network, the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite are only compatible with WEP (Wired Encryption Protocol).
    WPA - The Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, and Wii are compatible with both WEP and WPA security.

  • Known Compatibility Issues - Most wireless routers are compatible with the Wii console and Nintendo DS systems. However, our experience has shown the following devices may be incompatible:

ensure that your wireless router is not using wpa protection. If it is go into your router and change the wpa security to wep and you will have no problem connection.

SOURCE: re:-DS Lite.WiFi set-up. Asked for a Access Point.

Hi,

The DS lite only supports WEP which would have a HEX key password, if you have a pass key or pass phrase then chances are you are using WPA or WPA2 which is not supported on the DS lite.

The WEP key is an older form of security and has been found to have some weaknesses but to be honest its still secure enough for a home wifi set-up.

Here is a link to an article explaining more about the differences between the two.

You can change your settings on the wireless router, but you will then have to adjust the settings on your Wii accordingly.

If you need any further help or advice please feel free to contact me via my profile page.

Hello,

If you are using WEP or WPA security on your router try this:

1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
* WPA - PSK (TKIP)
* WPA - PSK (AES)
* WPA2 - PSK (AES)

But if your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:

1. From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
2. If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings).
3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.

1. go to our Wireless Router look up page.
2. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

Lastly, Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

I hope the above solves your problem.

Good luck.

SOURCE: my internet says the access

Hi weigels,

I see you are getting an error security settigns not support by your Nintendo DS.

I beieve that you are trying to access a wireless connection using your Nintendo DS, the error that you are getting is actually an error saying that your Nintendo DS can detect the router but since your Router has a Network key you then get the error security settings not supported.

for a Nintendo DS it does not support Router settings that have a network security on it, you will have to disable the Routers Network security for you Nintendo DS to be able to access the wireless network of your Router, this will also prevent your Nintendo DS from getting the error security setting not supported.

Note: disabling your Network security will open your Routers signal to anyone who can detect the signal.

I hope this helps.


Have a nice day,

You need to change the security settings on your router from WPA to WEP. WPA security is not supported by DS. Go to your router's wireless page and under security, change the settings.

The access point's security settings are not supported by the nintendo DS


This means you've got a WPA/2 security connection on your router/access point, whereas the Nintendo DS only supports WEP or open encryption.
You can:
1) change your security from WPA to WEP on your router
2) Purchase a used nintendo wifi stick
3) Set up a second router or access point with WEP security specifically for your DS

The Nintendo DS can only connect to 802.11b networks with WEP encryption (see here). Make sure your access point is 802.11b with WEP encryption in order for your Nintendo DS to be able to connect to it. Than you can try connecting it again.
Good luck.

I have this harvest moon game and i bought it like a year ago but it keeps freezing. can i return it?


You probably won't be able to return it to the seller. The time period for returns probably expired at this point. You may want to try calling Nintendo's tech support at this site: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer. This site has access to Nintendo's tech support areas. Click on the "DS Support" link toward the top of the page to access DS Support.

Web setup


With a Wi-Fi compatible game inserted into your Nintendo DS, access the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings screen. Your game manual provides information on how to do this for the game you are playing.
  1. Tap Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings
  2. Tap one of the Connection slots
  3. Tap "Search For An Access Point"

The Nintendo DS will then display the name of your wireless access point.
If your Access Point has a blue, unlocked icon, tap the Access Point name, and then 'OK.' The Nintendo DS will then establish a connection with your router. Back out to the main screen of your game and your ready to play online.

If your Access Point has a red, locked icon, the Nintendo DS has detected WEP key security on your router. Tap the Access Point name on the Nintendo DS and then enter the WEP key for your router on the following screen and tap 'OK' to save the settings.

Tap 'OK' again and the Nintendo DS will then establish a connection with your router. Back out to the main screen of your game and your ready to play online.

If your Access Point has a gray, locked icon, the Nintendo DS has determined your router's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS. In order to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, you will need to either switch to WEP security, or remove the security setting of your router when connecting with the Nintendo DS.

Connection to wi-fi


hello there,
here are the steps :
  • choose the option "Search for access point".
  • The choices are given.
  • If the access point is in the form of a closed padlock gray, and the message "Security settings incompatible with the Ds" message, it means that your router is configured with security settings that the Nintendo DS does not support (WPA, WPA2, etc..).
  • The only solution is to configure your router to WEP because it is the only security that the console recognizes.
hope this help
