  1. Turn on the Nintendo DSi
  2. Click on the wrench icon
  3. Go to the third page and select the internet button
  4. Select "Connection Settings" and tap the "None" bar in "Connection 1."
  5. You have the option of setting up a connection manually, or searching for available connections in the area. You may also access your Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connector, if you have one (the product has been discontinued). The easiest thing to do is select "Search for an Access Point."
  6. Your Nintendo DSi will list the names of any wireless access points in range. A gold, unlocked icon next to the connection's name signifies an unlocked WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) connection that can be accessed immediately. A locked gold icon signifies an encrypted WEP connection that requires a WEP key (password).
  7. If you are accessing a locked/encrypted connection, enter your WEP key. You may also click "Change Security Settings" to enter a WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) key.
  8. If your WEP key is correct, your Nintendo DSi should connect. You can test your connection to verify.
  9. You're set! Now you can surf the Internet, purchase games and add-ons in the Nintendo DSi Shop, and play games that allow wireless access and competition (with WEP connections, only).

I just bought my son a dsi and we cannot connect to the internet

You need to make sure you have the right key to connect to the internet, that is if you have a WEP or WPA2 encryption. Also, you need to make sure to enter the code in EXACTLY how you have set it up.

How do we get a WEP setting to set up internet access on our son's DSi?

If you set up a wireless home network, you should be aware of the WEP key that locks it. If you can not find the key, typer your router's brand into google to find a user manual that will teach you how to access your router from your computer to change the password.

When you say does not allow, do you mean you are getting an error message when you try to connect to a wireless connection? Or, are you just not able to configure it?

I need the wep security code for my sons dsi to download games on it from the internet. router name arris model # cm450a

When you did the initial setup for your router, you should have configured the wireless adapter in the router:
* set a SSID -- the "name" of the network
* set an encryption-level -- hint: use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network

It's that SSID/password that you need to enter on the DSI, to make a wireless connection to your router.

My son has a DSI xl and we want to get connected to the internet

Cool! To connect your son's DSi XL to the internet, you'll need to use its built-in WiFi card to connect to your home's wireless internet. This is really easy to set up from the settings of the DSi, assuming you have a wireless router or nearby wireless access point.
You can find more information directly from Nintendo's website here:
Good luck!
