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.

I'm trying to connect to my wifi in my house on my nintendo ds but every time I try it says the access points security settings are not supported for nintendo ds, what should I do?


The security settings on your wireless network's router aren't compatible with the DS. You can change the settings, but then you will have to adjust it for all other devices that use your wireless network. Here is a link to Nintendo's customer service site describing the issue in more detail.

My ds lite wont connect to our internet i have a wireless router the ds says the security settings are not supported by the nintendo ds


WPA and WPA2 are not supported by the DS Lite, only WEP and unencrypted wifi connections are. There is no known way at the moment to make the DS Lite support WPA of any form so your only three options are to go to WEP encryption, use no encryption (not recommended), or set up an adhoc connection on a computer with that is connected to your router that has internet connection sharing enabled.

How to fix error code 051110-1


This code means that it couldn't access the Wi-Fi access point. Make sure you are close enough to your router, and your connection settings match. Also, try using WEP (instead of WPA) if you aren't already.

Wi-fi


I am going to take a guess here - you are trying to connect a DS lite to your wireless network - the DS only support WEP security not WPA. Most wireless routers will default to WPA security. You need to log into your router and change its security to WEP. Details are dependent on the router make and model. If you need details on haw to change the wireless network please let me know.

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.

My nintando DS gets error code #51099 everytime I try to connect to the internet on pokemon soul silver. Do you have any ideas?


Error Code: 51099 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.

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!

Internet connection


First, the obvious: make sure your game supports wireless play and read the instruction manual for details on how that works.

Then, the less obvious: the DS is only able to handle unsecured or WEP wireless security protocols, so either make sure your router is using WEP or leave it unsecured (WPA does NOT work!). Also make sure your router is not set to exclude any MAC addresses. If you need to know how to do these things, look up the manual for your router or find a more general tutorial on wireless hub settings.

Nintendo also has a very comprehensive guide on routers: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/index.jsp

If all else fails, call Nintendo's customer service... they are actually VERY nice and helpful.
