Does your Wii recognize the network? Otherwise, try moving it closer to the router. What kind of security are you using? Make sure you are using WPA (recommended) or WEP (less secure) and try to connect your Wii with your passphrase. If this fails, see if it can connect if you turn your wireless security off. Make sure to turn it back on when you are done investigating!

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.
If prompted, use the keyboard on the bottom screen to enter the password for your wireless router or access point.

9.The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DS is now connected online.
Situation Not Resolved:

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 connect to my wifi so I can play poke on soul silver online but when I search for an access point it tells me "the access point's security settings are not supported by the...

Nintendo WFC is only compatible with the WEP security setting, even when playing with a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL. WPA and other security settings are not compatible.

My nintendo wfc settings won't work

Then you may have the settings input wrong. Try having the console set up the connection automatically. If that does not work, you may need to put in the SSID (Your network's name) and the passoword (same as you network's password) manually.

My ds gave me an error code 51099

This just means there is a problem with the wifi's settings or what you are trying to connect to is broadcasting something incompatible. I'm going to copy the link to Nintendo's help section. (I ain't gonna type that much ;-]) Basically all you neeed to do is try creating a new connection.

This should get you going.
