Welcome to Fixya

First you need to check is if the WEP key that you are entering is the WEP key of your router. Try to connect a laptop to your computer which do not belong to the network. Say, your friends laptop. This laptop will ask for a security key if it's the first time to connect to the network. Enter your security key and see if the laptop can connect to the network. If it did not connect then the problem is your WEP key.

Have a good one!

How to find your wifi WEP key


It should be on your wifi router

Wifi conectivity not working


What is your network encryption type? Nintendo DS Lite only supports WEP encryption (or none at all) so if you have WPA or WPA2 personal it will not connect. You need to either take off wireless security, or change encryption type to WEP.

What does wep mean in nintendo wi-fi conection


WEP is a type of encryption that can be put on your wifi connection. You would use a WEP encryption key if that is the type of encryption your router supports. You will have to check your routers settings to see what type of encryption you are using to connection your DS to wifi and to get your encryption key, which is like a password to your wifi.

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


WEP and WPA are types of security that are used to protect home wireless networks. WEP is the only security setting that works with the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite. WPA and WEP are both compatible with the Nintendo DSi. If you are not sure how to find your router's WEP or WPA Key or if you have problems entering it into your Nintendo DS, try the following tips:
so if your wifi is WPA. you wont be able to use wireless
but if your wifi is WEP you can.
WEP is not recommended because it is not secure. Easy to hack

Pokemon wifi error code51099


Look on your ds pokemon game. go under where it says "new game" and it will say Nintendo wifi settings. Choose your network. If the error shows up again, try going closer to the wireless router. That should resolve your problem.
You can also try resetting your router, and changing the security settings of it from WPA to WEP. Though it should be noted that WEP has very little security, but is the preferred DS connection method.

I dont know how to get internet on my ds lite


Nintendo? You have to have a WEP key...and if your wireless encryption is not set up with a WEP key, if it has a WPA or a WPA-2 key, it won't work. You have to change the encryption on your wireless (either router or modem, whichever you are using) ...open a browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, put in your password, and change the encryption type to WEP...then put the settings in the DS.

Nintendo DS vs. ActionTec GT704WG


Your DS may need another connection that is only blocked with a red lock. (Meaning WEP code locked.) If so, phone a computer tech support to help you set a connection with Wifi (wireless connection) and ask him/ her to set it to WEP code and "blocked". Then ask them to temporarily leave while you set your WEP password. A grey lock means that your DS is not compatible to your access point.
