As long as it's your, and it's locked, you'll be able to find the key. Usually when you set it up you have a password/WEP code to login, which keeps others out of your network.
If you forgot the key, depending on your router there are simple ways to find it.
Get on the computer that the router is manually connected to. Open up a web browser and type in exactly: http://192.168.1.1
Go under the security tab. From here you should be able to view the password.
Remember, if it's not your own wifi connection, then you can't access it.
Best of luck. Hope this helps!

How you connect to the internet to the DSI


hi there,
assuming you have a wifi connection in your home, this is what you need to do to connect the dsi to your wifi. 1. turn on your router and make sure you have a still wifi light on. then power on your dsi and click on the wrench icon, this takes you to the settings menu. 2. go to page 3 and select internet. 3. click on connection settings and then click on "none" next to connection1. 4.click search for access point(this will search for your wifi signal from your router) look for your router ssid, (linksy,belkin,netgear etc...) whichever type of router you have. your router should have security on it so the gold padlock will be locked and at this point once you select your wifi signal, you will be asked for a security/network key. This key will be on the back of your router, it will be a mixure of letters and numbers and will have either of these in front of it. wep/wpa/wpa2 and then you security key. now carefull and enter this key exactly as it is on your router(i.e. small letter, capital letter, number etc..) also if it looks for security type, make sure its the same as what's on your router(wep/wpa/wpa2). once this is done you should be connected. if for some reason your wifi does not have security, complete steps 1-4 and just select your wifi connection and you should be good to go. Hope this helps.

Cannot connect to internet


Error Code: 051099 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 here.
  • 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 security?
    No, 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 here):

  • 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.


If the 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.
If after trying the steps above you are still receiving this error code, please call 1-800-255-3700 for further assistance.

I have a nintendo ds and i have nintendo wifi but in gts it said ihad no connection and it sent me to this website help


Hi,
You must either have broadband internet access and a wireless router or you can connect your Nintendo DSi at a hotspot, such as a library or coffee shop that offers internet access.
  1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and click on the wrench icon. This will take you to the system settings.
  2. Go to page 3 and select "Internet".
  3. Click "Connection Settings".
  4. Click "None" to the right of "Connection 1".
  5. Click "Search for an Access Point".
  6. Look for an access point that has a gold lock that is unlocked. Select that access point and your Nintendo DSi should now be connected.
  7. If you are planning on playing games online with your Nintendo DSi and have WPA security, you will have to set your router to WEP security.
  8. To do this, get back to the "Connection Settings" screen mentioned in step 4.

    Click "Advanced Setup".

    Click any button that says "none".

    Click "Search for an Access Point".

    Look for an access point that has a gold lock that is unlocked. Select that access point and your Nintendo DSi should now be connected.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

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.
