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.

The only security settings that the DS will accept is WEP encryption. This means that your router is currently using another form of encryption (probably WPA). You need to actually change the security settings to WEP or turn them off completely.

I'm trying to get wi-fi on my nintendo ds but it keeps saying the access point's security settings are no supported by the nintendo ds.


You need to change the security settings on your router from WPA to WEP. WPA security is not supported by DS. Go to your router's wireless page and under security, change the settings.

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,

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.
http://www.nintendodslitebundle.org/how-to-get-internet-on-nintendo-ds-lite

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.

My internet says the access point's security settings are not supported by the nintendo ds. for help visit support.nintendo.com. that is what it says.


Hi weigels,

I see you are getting an error security settigns not support by your Nintendo DS.

I beieve that you are trying to access a wireless connection using your Nintendo DS, the error that you are getting is actually an error saying that your Nintendo DS can detect the router but since your Router has a Network key you then get the error security settings not supported.

for a Nintendo DS it does not support Router settings that have a network security on it, you will have to disable the Routers Network security for you Nintendo DS to be able to access the wireless network of your Router, this will also prevent your Nintendo DS from getting the error security setting not supported.

Note: disabling your Network security will open your Routers signal to anyone who can detect the signal.

I hope this helps.


Have a nice day,

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.

The access point's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS


WEP and WPA are types of security that are used to protect home wireless networks. WEP is the only security setting that works with the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite. WPA and WEP are both compatible with the Nintendo DSi. If you are not sure how to find your router's WEP or WPA Key or if you have problems entering it into your Nintendo DS, try the following tips:
so if your wifi is WPA. you wont be able to use wireless
but if your wifi is WEP you can.
WEP is not recommended because it is not secure. Easy to hack

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.

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.
