When the DS tells you that your security settings are not supported it means that your network is set up using WPA encryption as opposed to WEP. When your brother changed the password to your network he must have changed the encryption to WPA, which the DS does not support.

Every wireless router is different, but sine you brother has already changed the password your best option is to ask him go back to where he reset the password and change the security encryption to WEP. This will save you both a lot of headache as he will still be able to choose the password and you wont have to deal with learning how to change settings on your router.

Let me know if you have any further questions by leaving a comment. I'll get back to you as soon as I can!

Nintendo WFC is only compatible with the WEP security setting, even when playing with a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL. WPA and other security settings are not compatible.
solution: You will need to either change your security settings on your router to "WEP" (recommended), or disable all security.

How to connect your Nintendo DSi to the internet


In this guide I will go over the steps you will need to take in order to connect your DSi to the internet. You must first be in range of a wireless access point in order to use it. If you do not have wireless internet at home, you can use local hot spots that do such as coffee shops and school libraries. <br /><br />-Turn on your DSi and click on the wrench icon which will take you to System Settings. <br />-Go to page 3 and select "Internet", and click on "Connection Settings"<br />-Click "None" to the right of "Connection 1"<br />-Click "Search for an Access Point"<br /><br />This will bring up any wireless access points within range of your DSi. Any access points that have a gold lock that is unlocked means this access point does not require a security key. If you are going to use a access point that requires a security key, you will need to enter this key in. <br /><br />-Go back to the "Connection Settings" page and select "Advanced Setup". You will then be prompted for your wireless access point security information. Enter it in here.<br /><br />Okay. You should be connected and ready to enjoy your DSi. Good luck! <br /><br />G33k

How do i set up my daughters connection for er dsi? error codes 051099-1 comes up and the dsi says: no access point in range. check your ssid settings or move closer to an access point. what do i need to...


This probably means your not connected to any wifi.

You can check for a wifi access point by following these steps

  1. Go to your dsi settings (the wrench icon)
  2. Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."
  3. now choose "connection settings"
  4. click on one of the them that says "none"
  5. Click on "Search for an Access Point."
  6. a list of wifi access points should pop up
  • The wifi connection you are connecting to must have No Security or WEP
  • If the wifi connection is WPA you will not be able to go online for games
7. Choose one of those access points to connect to and if it is secured by WEP you must put in the password for that access point.


Good luck :)

How to setup the WiFi on your Nintendo DSi


I've seen quite a few questions on this site that all say the same thing pretty much: "How do I set up Internet on my DSi?" Allow me to explain the process. It's very simple.
1. At the DSi main menu, select the "System Settings" option and touch it with your stylus or press A.
2. Tap the Right Arrow two times. You will see an option that reads "Internet". Press it.
3. Select Connection Settings in the Internet Options Menu.

4. You will see 3 connection options. Select one that says "None".

5. At this point you have three choices: Search for an Access Point, AOSS, or Manual Setup. Your best bet is to choose Search for an access point. This will scan for any available connections around you.

6. When it finishes searching, a list of connections will appear. Select the one that you are trying to connect to. You will either see an unlock icon or a locked icon. If there is a locked icon, you will need to input your security code for your Router.

7. Once the connection is selected and the password, if there is one, is inputted, the system will preform a connection test. Once the test is complete, your connection settings are saved and you are ready to access Nintendo WiFi. Happy Gaming!

One last note. Some connections have security codes that are inaccessible for standard DS and DSi's. If that happens, instead of choosing an open connection (Step 4), you will want to choose "Advanced Setup". This will allow you to access connections with higher security, but you will only be able to use DSi features (Shop and Internet mainly. No In-game WiFi). The steps to connect to those systems is the same as connecting to a lower security connection.
