Nintendo Dsi/DS/Ds XL connects to the internet using wireless connection. You need to know the settings of your router. I've listed below the steps on how you will access the router and to obtain the information needed for you to be connected.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and theNetwork Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remeber the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we already know the setting of the router then its now time to connect the Dsi to the network.

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reson why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection.

My dsi not leting me in facebook

Sometimes dsi's don't do Facebook. check your internet connection settings. Also you need wi-fi for Facebook on a dsi. And if that doesn't work, your dsi was made before 2010. They started doing Facebook for the dsi in 2011. If it was made in 2011, then go to and type in "contact nintendo" in the search bar. Click on "nintendo-contact us!", put in your e-mail and choose "DSi" and so on.

My dsi can`t connect to the internet i tryed diffident days but it won`t work what do i do??

Try a different hot spot location. If it doesn't see wireless connections at all when you are looking at the network list, the wireless card in the DSi will need to be replaced which we can fix for you. Just give us a call at 214-222-5788.

Hi, could you help me please? recently my stupid nephew tried connecting the internet to his dsi and then he switched the dsi off, when he tried to switch the dsi ON it said: "an error has occurred...

Close the DS, turn the volume all the way down and then press a few more times, reopen, hold down power switch. It should turn off.

If it still doesn't work then it look like it was trying to do an update and was shut off while updating.

For a Guarantee fix you must change your DSi motherboard, they cost around $40 on ebay.

Try rebooting your router or modem and moving close to the source of internet when attempting to obtain an wireless connection for you DSi. If this doesn't work, try contacting Nintendo or your wireless internet provider for further solutions. If you need anything else, let me know!

Im trying to log on to the Internet for the first time using my Nintendo dsi and it wont allow me to do it.

Have you configured the WiFi settings for your DSi? If not, it's an easy process. First you go into your DSi settings menu and scroll over to "Internet". Once there, you will see 3 connection options to choose from. Select an open one and then choose the auto search option. The DSi will search for WiFi hotspots nearby that are accessible. Once it brings up a list, choose one that is either unlocked or one that you know the access key for.

After you choose a connection, the DSi will perform a connection test to make sure it's working. When it's done, it will say "Connection Successful". Go back to the DSi menu and access your Internet Browser or online functions in your game. You should be all set.
