Make sure that your router's WiFi security setting is actually set to WEP and not WPA or WPA2. WEP is the only encryption format compatible with the DS. You can access your router's security settings by going to in your browser. The username is usually admin and the password is usually blank. If that doesn't work, try it the other way around with the username blank and the password as admin.
Let me know if this works or not; if it doesn't I'm sure there are other things we can try. I was in a similar situation about a year ago and I had to do something much more complicated to fix it. Hopefully it won't come to that for you.

WIFI Saying Invalid Password but it is the correct password

go to the site survey tab, highlight your connection, and choose join, check that you have authentication mode set to WPA-PSK mode, encryption to TKIP, then put in the WEP key which is on the configure section of the wireless modem settings page. You can also change the password to something that you can remember if you want on the modem configure page.
Hope that helped.
Cheers from NZ

If im entering my password they are saying that it is invalid so i dont know what to do ive tried everything plz help?if i want to log in they are saying that.

The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Hey, I Have a Ninteno DS Lite, im trying to find an access point through my Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8236-4 v2 It shows up but it asks for a WEP key. if this is the passcode to my internet, i'm trying...

WEP key is the security code used in your router. If you forgot your wep key you can check it in your router's security settings. You can access the setup page of your router by :

1. Open your browser (ex. Mozilla, Google Chrome)
2. Type in the address bar
3. Enter your password (by default the password is just blank so you can just hit submit without typing anything)

4. Then click on the wireless tab, from there you can check your wep key in the security tab. You can also edit any information you want it that page.

I have my wep key, 11 characters, and internet at my own house. problem is: my psp says its invalid and it wont go in. im really lost and not sure what to do. hexadecimal what?

Hi, the WEP key you have should be incorrect, WEP keys have to be 10 characters, 26 characters or 58 characters.
Also, make sure you have entered your key correctly, when hexadecimal warning comes up it usually means that you have entered a character that is not A,B,C,D,E,F or 0-9.

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.
