Question about Nintendo Video Game Consoles & Games

2 Answers

Ok so I'm trying to connect my ds to wifi but everytime I try to connect it a screen keeps popping up saying the access points security settings are not supported by the nintendo ds. I've tried pretty much everything I could think of but nothing helped and I normally don't have these problems connecting to wifi so I don't know what to do.

SOURCE: re:-DS Lite.WiFi set-up. Asked for a Access Point.

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.

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.

The DS Lite does not support WPA or WPA2 encryption. It only supports WEP encryption so you would need to switch your router to that style of encryption in order to access your network. Generally I would not recommend this due to the weaker encryption offered with WEP.

Another possible solution is to set up a computer that has a hard wired connection to your router and plug in a USB wifi dongle then use internet connection sharing and an adhoc wifi connection to your DS to get it online.

SOURCE: my ds noes not let me access my via nintendo wifi

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.

Once i try to search fo an access point it says, the access point's security settingsare notsupported by the ds and we tried to unlock the wifi network


After setting and saving the settings on your wireless router to disable the security on the wireless network, did you try rebooting the DS? The wireless settings can get stored in the DS memory, so after you make changes to your network you may need to restart the DS. That should fix the issue.

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 :)

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.

The DS does not support the WPA encryption scheme; which is the only secure encryption scheme available. You could temporarily degrade the security in the router's admin page to WEP, though I would recommend you use public wifi when you have to, and keep yours secure.

Web setup


With a Wi-Fi compatible game inserted into your Nintendo DS, access the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings screen. Your game manual provides information on how to do this for the game you are playing.
  1. Tap Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings
  2. Tap one of the Connection slots
  3. Tap "Search For An Access Point"

The Nintendo DS will then display the name of your wireless access point.
If your Access Point has a blue, unlocked icon, tap the Access Point name, and then 'OK.' The Nintendo DS will then establish a connection with your router. Back out to the main screen of your game and your ready to play online.

If your Access Point has a red, locked icon, the Nintendo DS has detected WEP key security on your router. Tap the Access Point name on the Nintendo DS and then enter the WEP key for your router on the following screen and tap 'OK' to save the settings.

Tap 'OK' again and the Nintendo DS will then establish a connection with your router. Back out to the main screen of your game and your ready to play online.

If your Access Point has a gray, locked icon, the Nintendo DS has determined your router's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS. In order to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, you will need to either switch to WEP security, or remove the security setting of your router when connecting with the Nintendo DS.

The problem may be your security settings. The Wii and PSP can access WiFi no matter what the security settings are if you have the key, but the DS can't access highly encrypted WEP security. Double check your security settings and then re-input your code.
