Connecting the DS Lite to Internet

We have a wireless internet router that works great in our house with our laptops and my Blackberry (T-Mobile). The DS can see the router, but says that the type of connection we have is not compatible with the DS. We use Comcast as our ISP and it is a cable modem. Any ideas as to how my son can connect his DS Lite to the internet so he can play his WiFi games.

Hey b2000,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, you may be receiving this error message if you have what is referred to as a "Pre-N" router that is defaulting to the "N" type network settings. Since this type of network will not function with the Wii, you may need to check your router's settings to see if your network type can be changed to "Auto" or Mixed." This setting may normally be found on the router's "Wireless" settings page, but can vary from router to router.

You may also be encountering a problem where either the Wii does not have the necessary Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) key or the Wii has not been added to the router's Media Access Control (MAC) filters yet. Both of these may typically be addressed by accessing the router's control panel from an already connected computer.

If you are unsure how to update either of these, I would strongly suggest contacting Comcast directly for further assistance. In many cases, Comcast and other internet service providers (ISP's) are able to provide over-the-phone or in-home support to their subscribers with basic networking issues.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Cant connect to the internet..


Hi, What error do you get when connecting to the internet?
Anyways, Probably the Wireless connection your trying to connect to has a Network Security enabled on it.
Gaming consoles cant' access that type of Encryption, reason I do not know why but to be able to get wireless connection using your Nintendo DS you will need to disable the Wireless Network Security of your Wireless Router to be able to get Wireless Access using your Nintendo DS.
I also had issues with mine before and found out that disabling the Network Security will let me get Internet Access on my portable console.
Just Disable the Network Security this will allow you to get Internet Access on your Nintendo, for the Security of your Wireless you can get the MAC Address of each wireless device you have and input those MAC Addresses into the Router Settings to get Security and not allow other poeplt to gain access on your Wireless Internet.
I hope this Helps.
Have a nice day,
mvincentc

How do you get internet on the Nintendo DS Lite Console


I ran into this recently when we got a wireless network at our house. In order to browse the internet on your DS Lite, you need some kind of browser software, which can be purchased.

It should be noted that the DS Lite is only able to connect to a wireless network that is encrypted with a WEP password. It cannot connect to a network encrypted with a WPA or WPA2 password. Unfortunately (for the DS Lite), a lot of wireless networks are making WPA the standard, because it is more secure. However, you can change the settings of your wireless network (typically) so that it is encrypted with a WEP password. Just be aware that this makes your network less secure.

How do i install wi-fi on my ds lite? and is there wi-fi in Nigeria(lagos)


you need wireless internet, if you have wireless internet and it is still not working, there are generaly these reasons:
- a wep key, you can get it from your wireless router.
-there is other electrical interferience with another electrical object and the ds.
-your internet connection security is too high for the ds, if so lower it by going to control settings and lowering the security there, if u dont want to lower security get a nintendo wifi usb which lets you make a wireless acsess point for the ds without having to lower security on the computer after that you need to follow the instruction on the screen.
If you dont have wireless internet you have to buy a wireless router, or go with the wifi usb first hand even without the wireless internet and about wi-fi in Nigeria(Logos) i realy dont know if it is but you can test if you have all the equipment and it's easy just search.

How do i find the wep key on my smc2804wbrp-g wireless router. I need to input it into a nintendo ds lite, that is not able to connect to it. I was going to manually enter all the numbers.


The WEP key is the key that you use to access the Internet through the router. If you use a laptop to get on the Internet, you are asked for a password before you can surf the Internet. That password you type in is the same you should type into your DS Lite.
If you don't know, then you can get a paper clip and push the reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds and that will erase the password.

I have pokemon white version & it says we do not have wifi connection when we do have it at our house. What do we need to do to make it work?


The DS Lite does in fact connect to wi-fi via a router. For example you can have a Wi-Fi battle with any random person around the world if you have wireless internet in your house on Pokemon Black or White. My thought would be that your router has an encryption type that your DS does not support. The same thing happened to me. You can first try to go to the main menu of your Pokemon game and click on the Nintendo WFC Settings. Through here try and connect to your router by entering the password you have set for your router. If this still doesn't work try taking the password off of your router via your computer and see if you can connect then. Lites will only connect to certain types of encryption passwords. I use WEP and it works fine.

Can't get into wifi with nintendo ds


You need to make sure you have wireless internet. If not you need to buy a router. The cheapest router is $40 at Walmart. You need to install the router to your main home computer giving you wireless internet access. Common routers are Linksys or Belkin. Hope that helps!

Router won't connect to the internet


I managed to figure it out. I had to clone the MAC address to get the router to connect to the Internet.

I still have another problem though, my laptop still won't connect to the router. I'm using Vista, is this a possible network adapter issue? My laptop is fine at connecting to other wireless networks round my friend's houses/libraries...

Will my laptop router conect with nintendo ds lite


Not if Wifi connection is turned off. You may need to get a new connection and be able to keep the old one for no price. I dont know how to create a new wireless "wifi" allowed net, so you may need to ask around for help.
