Hi and Welcome to Fixya

Nintendo Dsi/DS/Ds XL connects to the internet using wireless connection. You need to know the settings of your router. Below are the steps on how you will access the router and to obtain the information needed for you to be connected.


How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and theNetwork Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remeber the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we already know the setting of the router then its now time to connect the Dsi to the network.

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reson why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection.


Thanks for using Fixya.

The access point's security settings are not supported by the nintendo DS


This means you've got a WPA/2 security connection on your router/access point, whereas the Nintendo DS only supports WEP or open encryption.
You can:
1) change your security from WPA to WEP on your router
2) Purchase a used nintendo wifi stick
3) Set up a second router or access point with WEP security specifically for your DS

My internet says the access point's security settings are not supported by the nintendo ds. for help visit support.nintendo.com. that is what it says.


Hi weigels,

I see you are getting an error security settigns not support by your Nintendo DS.

I beieve that you are trying to access a wireless connection using your Nintendo DS, the error that you are getting is actually an error saying that your Nintendo DS can detect the router but since your Router has a Network key you then get the error security settings not supported.

for a Nintendo DS it does not support Router settings that have a network security on it, you will have to disable the Routers Network security for you Nintendo DS to be able to access the wireless network of your Router, this will also prevent your Nintendo DS from getting the error security setting not supported.

Note: disabling your Network security will open your Routers signal to anyone who can detect the signal.

I hope this helps.


Have a nice day,

Im trying to get wi-fi connection on it and its telling me that "The access points security settings are not supported by the nintendo ds'


That means that the connection you're trying to connect to is probably a WEP-encrypted WiFi source. The Nintendo DS Lite cannot support that format of WiFi, however Nintendo has posted a very detailed and visual step-by-step guide in how to resolve that here
Just scroll down to "My security settings are not supported or are not compatible" and follow the instructions.

Good luck.

I'm trying to connect to my wifi in my house on my nintendo ds but every time I try it says the access points security settings are not supported for nintendo ds, what should I do?


The security settings on your wireless network's router aren't compatible with the DS. You can change the settings, but then you will have to adjust it for all other devices that use your wireless network. Here is a link to Nintendo's customer service site describing the issue in more detail.

I'm trying to play the new Pokemon Black but I want the free promotional Victini and it says I gotta have Wifi and I'm like "Ok..." And I try to connect it to my houses Wifi but this comes up!...


Hey darthbunnyva!

The reason you need a wi-fi to redeem your pokemon is for Nintendo to be able tu check that every code is unique and people are not cheating the system and getting the pokemons they don't own.

To set up your Nintendo DS for online use just follow these official nintendo guides for configuring your wi-fi

Hope this helped!

The Nintendo DS can only connect to 802.11b networks with WEP encryption (see here). Make sure your access point is 802.11b with WEP encryption in order for your Nintendo DS to be able to connect to it. Than you can try connecting it again.
Good luck.

Re:-DS Lite.WiFi set-up. Asked for a Access Point. Came up. '' This access point's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS.'' ? It was accepted on my Wii?


Hi,

The DS lite only supports WEP which would have a HEX key password, if you have a pass key or pass phrase then chances are you are using WPA or WPA2 which is not supported on the DS lite.

The WEP key is an older form of security and has been found to have some weaknesses but to be honest its still secure enough for a home wifi set-up.

Here is a link to an article explaining more about the differences between the two.

You can change your settings on the wireless router, but you will then have to adjust the settings on your Wii accordingly.

If you need any further help or advice please feel free to contact me via my profile page.

Try changing the security encryption settings on your wireless network. The ones that you are currently using, the DS does not support.
