Make sure have a wireless broadband internet connection available within a short distance of where you are. The DS Lites are kinda slow. You may have to try a few times to get onto the internet. Also, sometimes if you are using a modem that is being used by some other people at the same time (coffee shop etc), it can be painful getting on the internet with the DS Lite. You might also want to power off the DS Lite and even remove the battery for a minute and put the battery back in and power the unit back on. This will reset the DS Lite and and sometimes accelerate the speed at which the DS Lite process.

Where do i go to get a wifi conection


To conect to wifi, you'd need to buy a WI-FI USB connecter. They can be found at most video game stores for $37.00 (varies on location) They get plugged into your USB port on your computer, then they enable you to connect to wifi . If you have a Laptop the USB port should be found on the side.

If you just need more information off of what I've given you, read the bottom of my post for a recommended website for Wi-Fi.

When you get a USB connecter:

On your DS:
Once you have it plugged in, turn on your DS with a game that is compatible with Wi-Fi. In the game there should be a place where it allows you to adjust your Wi-Fi settings.
When you select that, two options should appear, tap on the one that is labled "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings" You'll see four options to chose from, you want to tap on the one near the bottom of the screen, it's shown as "Connect To Your Wi-Fi USB Connecter." The next screen will say for you to install your Wi-Fi connecter software to your computer

On your computer:(you must have internet connection on the computer)
Close your DS for now and turn your attention to your computer, insert the USB into the the USB port on your computer. The picture that is next to the port will look like this:

Install the software first, then a window will appear after the installation. Ignore it for now, and look back to your DS.

On your DS:
It should still be on the same screen you left it on unless your battery is dead (not recommended to conect to wi-fi with low power )
Tap "Ok" on your DS, It'll then launch a test connection. Look back at your computer screen now.

On your computer:
The box I told you to leave alone before will still be on, and now it should have your DS name inside it. Your DS name is what you entered your name as on your DS configuration settings.
Click on your DS name and select the option allow access. You can either allow or deny anyone access to connect on wi-fi through your USB.

On your DS:
Now that you have allowed access to your self on the computer, you can get back to your game and tap on "connect to Wi-Fi" this time instead of tapping "test connection." You'll then get a friend code that will allow you to interact with others who have connected with the same game.

Notes: For more about getting started,connected, and swapping friend codes, view this site: http://www.nintendowifi.com/global/AboutWIFI_DS.jsp
Also, if you've ever heard of a Wi-Fi hotspot, that just means you have to take your own computer or laptop with Your own Wi-Fi USB connecter to the certain area for free Internet service. This only means public areas, like at Starbucks or Panera Bread Compay, but then if you're doing this at a friends house then you just need to get your self registered access on their USB.

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.

Ive tried to get the internet working but it keeps saying error code 051110-1 what does that mean?


Error Code: 051110 The 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:
    If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector

  • 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.
If the above information does not work, and you are using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, click here for additional assistance.
If the above information does not work, and you are connecting at home with a wireless router, there could be settings on your router that need to be adjusted. Please click here for more information.

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.
    If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector

Connection to wi-fi


hello there,
here are the steps :
  • choose the option "Search for access point".
  • The choices are given.
  • If the access point is in the form of a closed padlock gray, and the message "Security settings incompatible with the Ds" message, it means that your router is configured with security settings that the Nintendo DS does not support (WPA, WPA2, etc..).
  • The only solution is to configure your router to WEP because it is the only security that the console recognizes.
hope this help

Do not know how to go online


(Im using Megaman Starforce 2 for demonstration)
First,get a game with the Wi-Fi logo(its a blue circle with Wi-Fi in white letters).Then you need a Wi-Fi connection,as thats what connects you to the internet.If you can get close enough to a signal,go into the game and look for WI-Fi settings or Wi-Fi configuration in the game menu.You will get a nintendo menu with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Setup.Press Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings,press connection 1(or whatever number is avalible)and search for an access point.Press the access point that you want(or that is avalible)and then let it test the connection.Now enjoy the game on the internet!(remember to do this for any game you buy,and also if it is a temporary connection,remember to delete it once your done with it.)
Hope it helps,if not,ask me any other questions!

Will not connect to server


Nintendo DS's are annoying when it comes to connecting to servers. Usually in most games it will give you an option to check the "Nintendo Wi-Fi" settings on the title screen. Go to connection settings, and tap a connection. Now you can search for an access point, or manually put one in. In the search you should see a few options. Pick the greatest connection, and you should be good to go. If your having trouble finding a point near you, I would consider going somewhere with free Wi-Fi and connecting there,(like a Starbucks for instance).

Trying to connect to wifi usb connector and keep getting error code 52203


I'm assuming you are talking about the nintendo DS. Here is the info on that error code straight from nintendo:

Error Code: 52203
The Access Point you are attempting to connect from is not connected to the internet or a firewall is blocking traffic necessary for connecting to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. What to do will depend on where you are trying to connect from: What to do:
    If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector
  • Verify that your router is connected to the internet when attempting to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. If you are not able to access the internet on your computer, then there is a problem with your internet connection. Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for more information.

  • America Online (AOL) broadband users may experience difficulties when attempting to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Please contact America Online for assistance.

    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector
  • The access point at the Hotspot may not be experiencing problems. Ask the staff on site if their Wi-Fi network is up and running.

  • If the Hotspot's access point has a built-in firewall or other security that interferes with the necessary transmissions from the Nintendo DS, then the access point will not be compatible with the Nintendo DS.

  • Try another Hotspot. To search for known Hotspots in your area, click here.
