Unfortunately, that error code means that your router is incompatible with the DS. I had this problem when I played DS, and we ended up buying the Nintendo Wi-fi USB connector, which acts as a bridge to let your DS connect through the PC it's plugged into.

You can find a USB connector at most electronic stores, but you just need to make sure it is the official Nintendo Wi-fi USB Connector, not a cheaper substitute, as those WILL NOT work.

The other option is getting a new router, which is the better but more expensive option. Chances are, your router is pretty old or low quality if you're getting that error anyways, and buying a new one will fix that problem right up.

I can't connect to the internet. My DS is giving me Error Code: 51300. What can I do?


According to Nintendo's tech support website, error code 51300 means that the access point you are trying to connect to is not compatible with the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection. Try to find another access point and see if it will work then.

Here is the link from Nintendo explaining the 51099 error code. In the future, please provided more specific information so that we can help you more effectively. I fortunately recognized this as a Nintendo error code. Most people would not have. Simply typing "51099" with no other information generally slows down your response time from experts. You were just fortunate this time that I happened to be online when the question appeared. Thanks in advance!

Hi I got the new pokemon game (White version) and I am trying to get the event gift ( a pokemon) and its asking me for wi fi but it says its an error code 51099 Can you please help.


There are certain types of WiFi that can't be picked up by the DS Lite which prompts you error 51099. For example, you can't use a security protected WEP WiFi. I encountered this problem with my DS also and if you know how to remove the password on your WiFi router, that should solve the problem, however it leaves your network unsecured so I suggest doing that only to receive the event gift.
Nintendo also has a detailed troubleshoot guide for that error which I've provided a link below.

Wi fi error code 51099


Error code 51099 implies that your DS cannot connect to the wireless signal. You should check the settings on your DS and the settings on your router.

Here's a detailed and interactive guide for how to do both.

Hope this helps fix your problem!
