It might me possible that your Wireless module is defective.
It's the only part on the systemboard that can be removed (with the black cable connected to it).

Why can't I connect my DS Lite to my Wifi?


hi Kevin,
The ds lite uses WEP encryption, you will most probably be using wpa/wpa2 which has alot better security but is not compatible with the ds lite. I think the dsi uses wpa and therefore works. I wouldn't recommend changing your current wifi to wep just to get on the internet with the ds lite.
Hope this helps
Paul

How do you "Connect to nintendo wi-fi connection"


Hi there.
    • Turn on your DS and navigate to the WiFi connection settings menu. On a DSi, click the wrench icon, navigate to the third page of options and select "Internet." On an original DS or DS Lite, select "Edit WiFi Settings" from the in-game menu. The game must be WiFi compatible to access the WiFi settings menu.
    • Select "Connection Settings."
    • Choose an open connection slot, which will be indicated by the word "None" next to the connection number
    • Select "Search for an Access Point."
    • Select your wireless network from the list displayed. Enter the wireless encryption code for your network with the onscreen keyboard.
    • Select "OK" when prompted to save your settings and establish a connection with the network.
    Let me know if you have further questions.
Thank you!

Im trying to get wi-fi connection on it and its telling me that "The access points security settings are not supported by the nintendo ds'


That means that the connection you're trying to connect to is probably a WEP-encrypted WiFi source. The Nintendo DS Lite cannot support that format of WiFi, however Nintendo has posted a very detailed and visual step-by-step guide in how to resolve that here
Just scroll down to "My security settings are not supported or are not compatible" and follow the instructions.

Good luck.

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.

Pokemon wifi issue..cannot trade pokemon


If you have a wireless router for your internet you should have wifi in your house. To enable wifi on your nintendo ds. Insert the pokemon game and let it start up until you get to the main starter menu where it says New Game, Continue, Mystery Gift(If you unlocked it), and Nintendo WFC Settings. click the Nintendo WFC Settings than Nintendo WiFi- Connetion Settings. It will give you 3 tabs to set up your connections. If you already have 3, delete one
Once you click an empty one click Search for an Access Point, It should search for about 5-10 seconds than show you what connections you have and their names. Also an impotertant tip, If your internet router is locked you might want to get that key so you can enable the ds to use the internet otherwise it won't be able to connect.
