You need to make sure that the wireless router in your home has either WEP, WPA, WPA2, or no encryption. If it is set to any other encryption level, the DSi will not be able to connect to the network, no matter what.
To set up the network on the DSi, you need to go into the System Settings from the main screen. Go to page 3 of the settings and tap 'internet', then 'connection settings'. Choose any of the 3 connections, and hit the button next to the one you've chosen.
You should be able to automatically connect by clicking "Search for an Access Point". After the list of access points is generated, choose the one whose name matches the name of your network. If the connection has a little 'lock' symbol next to it, it means it is encrypted. You will need to either enter the network key that is assigned to your router, or remove the encryption from your router (not recommended). After that, save the settings and let the DSi test the connection, and you should be finished.

I dont have the web and i want to connect to the internet


If you want to connect to the internet with your DSi console at home, you will unfortunately have to get a home internet connection with a wireless router.

Another option you have is to visit somewhere with a wireless internet connection, such as a cafe. Ask there for the 'wi-fi' password, which you will be asked for on your DSi upon trying to connect to the internet.

Hope this helps.

How can we connect to the internet if we don't have a usb cord


You need to connect using a Wireless Access Point, or Wifi internet connection.

If you have a home wireless network, you can use that.

My dsi is not connecting to the internet


Hi shamar101,

To set up your wifi on your dsi do the following:

Here's How:
  1. Turn on the Nintendo DSi
  2. Click on the wrench icon to access "System Settings."
  3. Select "Internet" on the third page of System Settings.
  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).
Tips:
  1. If you need help with your router settings, visit Nintendo's router FAQ
  2. Most Nintendo DS and DSi owners can get online by searching for an access point, but some might have to resort to manual setup. Visit Nintendo's manual setup guide if you have a unique situation and need help.
  3. The Nintendo DSi can go online with a WPA connection, but actually playing DSi games online requires a WEP connection.
What You Need:
  • A Nintendo DSi
  • A broadband internet connection, such as cable, DSL or FIOS
  • A wireless router
  • A Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector (optional)

Hope this helped!

When I try to download games from the nintendo ds shop, It keeps telling me that I have to connect to the internet and I don't know how to.


Here is a link to the downloadable Nintendo DSi XL manual: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/downloads/UTL_ops_eng.pdf

On page 73 of the manual it has a good description on what the requirements are to connect the DSi to the internet. At a minimum you would need a broadband internet connection (cable modem, DSL, etc.), and a wireless router to run a wireless network. The DSi connects to the internet over a wireless (Wi-fi) network.

Once you have the equipment set up you need to join your DSi to your wireless network. Page 79 of the manual describes the most common scenario for connecting a DSi to a home wireless network.

DSi White Console: can not connect to internet promble error code: 02...


Error Code: 020100The Nintendo DS is unable to connect to an Access Point. What to do will depend on where you are connecting from:

Connecting from a wireless home network:
  • Make sure that the DS is within 30 feet of the wireless access point and facing in its general direction.
  • Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off.

Connecting from a Hotspot
  • Ensure the Hotspot location does not require an internet browser to setup an account, accept a use agreement, or enter a password before accessing their Wi-Fi serice. If the location requires any of these items, you will not be able to connect to the Nintendo WFC.
  • Make sure that the DS is within 30 feet of the wireless access point and facing in its general direction. Signal strength can vary, depending on where the access point's signal is coming from. (Please do not sit or stand in places that will interfere with the location's customers or staff.)
  • Orientate the Nintendo DS so that your body or other objects (such as walls, plants, furniture, and other people) are not blocking the signal. Also, make sure there is no interference from wireless phones (cell phones are okay).
  • If the connection continues to fail, this Hotspot may have their router set up in a manner that is not compatible with the Nintendo WFC. We recommend trying a different location.
