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.

oIf you receive the error message "No Compatible Access Points Within Range," click here.
7.Tap on the name of your wireless router or access point.
oIf there is a gray padlock next to the name of the wireless access point you wish to connect with, this indicates your router is using a security type incompatible with the Nintendo DS.

9.The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DS is now connected online.

To reach your connection settings, click "back" on the error code screen. Make sure to pay extra attention to the security key you find in your router's settings and enter it exactly as it appears (the key is case sensitive).

I'm trying to get wi-fi on my nintendo ds but it keeps saying the access point's security settings are no supported by the nintendo ds.


You need to change the security settings on your router from WPA to WEP. WPA security is not supported by DS. Go to your router's wireless page and under security, change the settings.

Conecting to wi-fi " the access point's security


There are several types of wireless security that wireless routers use to try to keep people that shouldn't be on your network off of it. Try going into your wireless access point's settings and changing the type of security it uses.

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

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.

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!
