Welcome to Fixya. Nintendo Dsi/DS/Ds XL connects to the internet using wireless connection. You need to know the settings of your router. I've listed below 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.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Connetion settings

Hi there.

  • You must either have broadband internet access and a wireless router or you can connect your Nintendo DSi at a hotspot, such as a library or coffee shop that offers internet access. Make sure you are in a location mentioned above before going to step 2.
  • Turn on your Nintendo DSi and click on the wrench icon. This will take you to the system settings.
  • Go to page 3 and select "Internet".
  • Click "Connection Settings".
  • Click "None" to the right of "Connection 1".
  • Click "Search for an Access Point".
  • Look for an access point that has a gold lock that is unlocked. Select that access point and your Nintendo DSi should now be connected.
  • If you are planning on playing games online with your Nintendo DSi and have WPA security, you will have to set your router to WEP security.

  • To do this, get back to the "Connection Settings" screen mentioned in step 4.

  • Click "Advanced Setup".
  • Click any button that says "none".
  • Click "Search for an Access Point".
  • Look for an access point that has a gold lock that is unlocked. Select that access point and your Nintendo DSi should now be connected.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you for using Fixya!
