Did this connection used to work but has suddenly stopped? "Power cycle" your router and modem. To do this, unplug both the modem and the router from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then plug in the router. Try to connect the Wii, Nintendo DS, or Nintendo 3DS online and test for proper response.
Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is found in the "Broadcast Channel:" area.

SOURCE: Wifi not working

usually, yes, it's a coding goof. cheat devices can crash consoles and peripherals. if it was a hand entered code, rather than an "on the software", one error will render it useless. also, some codes, when activated clash with each other and crash. try using a minimum of codes, or onr at a time, and see if that works.

SOURCE: cannot get a DS to connect to my router.

Our experience has shown that this error message is typically caused by a basic setting in your router, such as transmission rate. Please carefully read the instructions below:

  • Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
    1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router Configuration page.
    2. Use the drop-down box on the left to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
    3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
    4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."


  • If the router is not listed on our pages, or has no suggested basic rate and transmission rate changes, log into the router, and check likely areas for the basic rate and transmission rate. (e.g., "Wireless Settings," "Advanced Wireless Settings," "Connection Rates") Change the basic rate to "1-2." Change the transmission rate to "2." (Make the change even if only one of those options is available). Test the connection.

  • Another device may be sharing the same I.P. address of the DS. Try manually assigning an IP address to your Nintendo DS.
    1. The first thing you'll need to do is find out the range of IP addresses you should be using. To do this:
      1. Click the "Start" button in the lower left-hand corner of your computer.
      2. Click "Run."
      3. Type "cmd" into the box and press Enter.
      4. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press Enter. The IP address of the PC will be displayed.
      5. The IP address you are going to assign to the Nintendo DS must be 10 digits higher than the PC's. (e.g., 192.168.1.100 becomes 192.168.1.110).
      6. Enter in the exact same values for your Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Secondary DNS as you see listed on your computer screen for IPCONFIG/ALL.
    2. You will now need to manually assign this new IP address to your Nintendo DS. For step-by-step instructions on how to do this, please click here.


  • Ensure you have entered the correct DNS into the DS's manual settings. You can verify this by using the steps listed directly above (IPCONFIG/ALL).
If you are still unable to connect, please call 1-800-255-3700 in the USA or Canada for more information.

The problem may be your security settings. The Wii and PSP can access WiFi no matter what the security settings are if you have the key, but the DS can't access highly encrypted WEP security. Double check your security settings and then re-input your code.

Try changing your WiFi encription to WEP or no security, this should be available on your cablemodem/router web internface (need a user and password for that) under the Wireless/Security option.

Is there a fix to wii error code 50300 ?


The Wii console's internet connection settings are not correct. This could include your network name (SSID), WEP or WPA keys, or any manual settings you may have entered.
It's possible something has changed since you last connected online with your Wii console. Try setting up a new connection file, using your router's settings.
While "Search for an Access Point" is the easiest and recommended connection type, your network may require you to use the "Manual Setup" option.
If the problem persists, try our general troubleshooting for tips.
If you are still getting this error code, please call 1-800-255-3700 for further assistance.

Connecting to a "2WIRE" wifi connection. Says the


Hi,

I understand that you are having trouble connecting your Nintendo DS wirelessly to your 2Wire router. The solution is simple, your Nintendo DS only supports WEP (Wireless Encription Passkey) security. It is highly possible that your 2Wire router's wireless security is set to WPA. That means you will need to reconfigure your router so that it will be utilizing WEP as a security for your wireless connection. To be able to do this, you need a couple of information from the one who setup your router. 1. User name of your router 2. Password or your router.

Once you have gotten this information, you will need to access your router configuration page through one of the computers that is linked to your 2Wire router by typing http://gateway.2wire.net on the address bar of your browser.

It will be asking you for the username and password. If nobody had setup or changes the username and password of the router, use this default username and password of a 2Wire router. Username: (none) Password: Wireless or Username: 2Wire and Password: (none). Try any of the two. If it does not work, try admin and the word password for the password or any other combinations of the two.

Once you have entered the router's configuration page click the Home Network Tab and then click on Wireless Settings. You will see there a portion that says Wireless security. In that area, you will see a drop down where you can choose what kind of wireless security you want on your system. As I have said, the Nintedo DS does not support any other wireless security setting but WEP. That means you will need to change the drop down to WEP. That also means after changing this, you will need to reconfigure your other wireless devices (like your laptop) to use WEP as well.

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.

My 2wire router will not connect to my nintendo ds wifi system.


The DSi only works with WEP encryption. The 2Wire and most other newer routers use WPA encryption.

Simply logon to your router with a web browser. The default IP for it is 10.1.1.138 but it might be different, just check the manual or internet for the IP. Go to "Home Network" then "Advanced Settings" and change the security from WPA to WEP and save.

Thats it!

Hope that helps.
