If you need to get Information about your Security key, you need to access the GUI of your access point of wireless router by connecting to it using the default gateway. Then after taht you can get into the page where you can get teh security key. Cheers!!!

Unable to connect to the access point


Hi tissa,
I see you are unable to connect to your Access Point as noted on the question provided.
First console cannot connect to an Access point if it is Password protected.
You will need to disable the Password or Network Access key from your Router to be able to get your DSi to connect to your Access Point freely.
To get security with your Nintendo DSi connecting to your Access Point in your Router setting you can enable the MAC Address filtering and get your devices MAC addresses and have it registered or input in your Routers MAC Address Filtering to be able to get your DSi connected wireless and at the same time have your Laptops and other wireless devices connected.
for the MAC address you can call you Internet Service provider on the issue to give you detailed info on how to access you Router settings for the said connection.
I hope that this will help.
Thank you fo choosing Fixya,
mvincentc

I can't get my son's DSI to connect to the internet. I am using a vverizon 5 spot. We go to advanced setup it said setup complete then we do connection test (which is on connection 4). It says...


as i remeber, the secruity code is the one that you put before you access a locked internet connection and the passes are usally wpa styled password. you should put go to run>cmd>type ipconfig>and find you ip adress and put your ip on you internet explore. if should directly connect you to the router figuration or the log in your adminstrater and go to security tab or it might be diffrent. find your pass and put it on the dsi. hope it helped.

No internet


  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 nothing shows up, try moving to another location.

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".

the error code means; "Cannot connect to the access point for an unknown reason"
Basically it means you are going to need to reconfigure the access point settings

Make sure the security key in the connection settings matches that of the access point. If this error code occurs even after connections are allowed, the wireless signals may be too weak at your location. Try moving closer to your access point, and make sure there are no people, objects, or other obstacles between the system and the access point. When connecting to an Internet hot-spot for which a proprietary security key has been set, make sure you configure your connection
setting.

if this does not work its a possibility that the access point has reached a maximum number of connections and is unable to connect to your device. Try again later to see if it will allow you to connect.

Brought a new laptop with wireless installed have a philips SNB5600 but have lost the security key how can i get the code


go to the wireless access point admin settings (not on your wireless adapter on your laptop). then check wireless security settings. if you see something there such as security key, that is the security key that you need to set up on your laptop. if security key is not visible, try to see if there is an option there which says unmask to show the security key, then copy it to your laptop. if all else fails, change the security key in the wireless access point and change all the wireless adapters that connect to it accordingly to the new security key you set it up.

Cannot get wireless connection to my laptop it works with the ethernet cable plugged in


You need to make sure you have the same settings on your wireless access point that you use on your laptop.

Make sure you spell your SSID (wireless network name) correctly. It is case sensitive.

Turn off security on your access point just to see if it works.
Configure your network card for Open access and turn off all other security settings.

Once you get it working turn on WEP encryption on your access point and create a wep key. Enter the same key on your Laptop.

Don't turn on stuff that you don't need or don't understand.

You just need to make it as simple as possible and then turn on adequate security.

OR

If the WEP stuff just gets too hard you can use MAC security.
That is where you say only known computers can access the wireless network. On your wireless access point configuration add the mac address of every devices network card that will connect. Sometimes these settings can be a little hard to find on the access point.

Hope this helps.

Start simple and then make it complex :)
