I need internet on my dsi


Well, have you done the homework?

1. DSI needs WiFi, ie, wireless internet. Do you have a wireless router or wireless modem router in your place?
2. If yes, have you enabled the wireless radio in the router. This can be done by opening up the router options by typing the IP Address of the router (it should be somewhere written in the router itself) and login. If you don't know the password, google your model number and you will get all information like default ip address, login etc. If possible download the manual from the manufacturer website and go through it to familiarize the options. (If you have an apple router, you will need "airport utility"..google).
3. Once logged in as "admin", look for "wireless" options (Manual will help you), enable "radio", "ssid", note down the ssid name, and for troubleshooting purposes, leave the security "off/disabled". Save/apply changes.
4. Make sure wireless "G" is selected or a mode thats compatible with wireless "G" (go through the options, mostly default option will suffice). If this is in another page, again, save or apply changes.
5. Reboot the router, wait for a couple of minutes till the lights for internet and wireless appears.
6. From DSI, search for available networks, find the ssid name that you have noted down and click connect.
7. Hopefully, it should connect, otherwise, you may have to manually enter DSI IP Adress, subnet mask (255.255.255.0), gateway and dns servers (both router IP Adress). If your router address is, say 192.168.1.1, then give dsi an ip adress 192.168.1.xx where xx is a number between 2 and 255. That is, what ever ur router ip address is, just change the last digits to anything under 255, excluding the router address. Now try again, hopefully everything should be settled.
8. Look into DSI manual to see whether it supports wpa/wpa2 security or just WEP. You may also have to take into consideration any other devices that connect to router wirelessy, like laptops, smart phones, tablets etc. If all of them supports wpa/wpa2, go back to router options and select that security, create password, write it down. Otherwise select "WEP" encrryption. (The point to remember here is the lowest common denominator, ie, if DSI supports only WEP, selecting WPA/WPA2 will be useless, as DSI will not connect, even if it sees the SSID.
9. Save changes, reboot router, wait for lights to steady.
10. From DSI, again select your SSID name from available networks (just to make things easier, shut down DSI, restart to disconnect earlier connections), it will ask for password or both password and security type. If DSi supports WPA/WPA2, and ur security is set as such, and DSI is not connecting, play with the options, if any, like "WPA only", WPA2 only" WPA/WPA2" and try to connect.

You should succeed with this much details. Good luck

I cant connect to the internet. It says that there something wrong with my access point settings because it cant obtain an IP address.I have tried to type in all of my codes that i could find that apply to...


some portable devices do not like certain WEP modes on routers. also some may be able to see the wireless network but cannot connect because of the format is either wireless "G" or "B" or wireless "N" the latter of which you won't be able to connect to because of the format. check your devices for wireless type "G" only or "B" only or "N" only connections. aslo check for WEP type allowed as well!
Wireless "N" and the "Super-G" are the newest wireless routering devices you must check for compatibility issues. this information may be found in your user's manuals for your devices.

I cant connect to the internet


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!

Hi i cant get my wireless internt on as there is something wrong and dont now what happen


First of all, you should always look at the manufacter's product manual (http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/D-Link-DIR-615-Manual.pdf). On there, you have all the information you need.
Second, your question is a little bit vague, you have to make sure you're router has the wireless function enable, then you should look for the wireless network on your computer and connect to it using the wireless key.
Please read the manual carefully as it should help you a lot.
