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.
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.
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.
Wired Equivalent Protocol is a method of encrypting "over-the-airwaves" transmission of data from one wireless device (your DS-LITE) to another wireless device (your router).
You need to connect a computer to the router, and then configure the "wireless networking" part of your router:
* set an SSID (the name of your network)
* set an encryption level (use 'WPA', not 'WEP')
* set a password
Enter the SSID and the password onto your DS-LITE, to make the wireless connection.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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.
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!
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.
Hello ffoeg66off, My friend has the same make of router, If you can't find your wep key, are you sure it has one, not all routers have them, mine does, but my friend doesn't. If your Nintendo DS askes for a wep key like mine did, try to find a long conbination of letters and numbers, if it doesn't, you dont need one!
