Error code 051099

It appears that the settings entered into the Nintendo DS are not compatible, or the router's broadcast settings should be changed.

What we need to do is try creating a new connection with your system.
1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and access the System Settings by clicking on the wrench icon
2. Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."
3. Now choose "Connection Settings."
4. Click on "None" for "Connection 1." (Don't see "None" for Connection 1? To ensure any existing settings don't interfere with getting connected, tap the button, then choose "Clear Settings.")
5. Click on "Search for an Access Point."
6. The Nintendo DSi will search for any wireless networks within range. Once it is finished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks it finds.
Look for your wireless network.
7.What to do next will depend on the "lock" icon you see next to your network on the Nintendo DSi.

You will now have 3 options
A. GOLD UNLOCKED LOCK (No security - Tap on your network name to save the settings and begin a connection test.)
WEP security - Your wireless network is secured with WEP and requires a security key.

Follow the steps now depending on your option
Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DSi is now connected online.
The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code. LET ME KNOW WHAT IT IS

B. WEP security - Your wireless network is secured with WEP and requires a security key.
Enter your WEP key
On the upper screen you will be informed that "A security key is needed to connect to this access point." Enter your security key by tapping the empty field, and select "OK" when finished.

Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes."

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

  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
    • Error Code 51300 or 51099: This means the security code entered into the Nintendo DSi is not the same one the router is set to. Scroll back up to step #3 of this page for the step-by-step directions. 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).
    • All other error codes: Let me know what it is.

    Router wrt54g2 wont connect to my ho laptop asks for key or passphrase and when in put in key starts doesnt match my laptop security network

    You have set up the security on the router itself so that nobody can steal your signal. When you did this you made up your own key/pass phrase. If you go back into the setup screen for the router you can look under the wireless tab then click on wireless security. Depending on what security you set up be it WPA Personal, WPA Enterprise, WPA2 Personal, WPA2 Enterprise or WEP it will show the shared key that you made up. You must enter this key in on your laptop EXACTLY how it is typed in the box in the routers information page.

    Setting secured wireless connection

    You can enable WEP on your router.

    In the address bar of your browser, type to access the setup page of the Dlink router.

    By default the username is admin and leave the password blank.

    On the Setup page, go to Wireless.

    Security Mode should be WEP then click Next.

    You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer.

    Save the settings.

    I hope this helps!

    My wireless network is currently unsecure. how do

    If you have a PC connected to your router through an Ethernet cable (i.e. wired), make the changes through it, because, if you do it through a wireless device, you would loose access as soon as you set your wireless secturity parameters. Anyway, start a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) and go to '' (this is the default IP address for this router. If you have changed it, replace it with yours). An authentication screen will come up, Enter 'admin' as 'User name', leave the 'Password' field empty, and click on 'OK'. The web interface will come up. Click on the 'Wireless' icon (on the left side of the screen) and the 'Home' tab. On 'WEP', click the 'Enabled' checkbox. On 'WEP Encryption', if you choose '64bit' you must enter exactly 5 characters as your wireless passphrase. Otherwise, if you choose '128bit' (more secure, of course), your wireless password must be exactly 13 characters long. To make it easier for your, select 'ASCII' under 'Key Type', and enter either your 5-char long or 13-char long passphrase under 'Key1' (make sure its checkbox is ticked). Then, click 'Apply' (the green icon with a check mark). Your router is now secured. Now, make these same changes (i.e. WEP encryption method and the passphrase you've chosen) on all devices (computers and/or smartphones), in order to allow them to connect to your router through Wi-Fi.
    Hope it works for you.
    Cheers! Carlos

    Wireless not working

    remove wireless security as Linksys won't accept certain WEP keys

    ping the device to determine that it is there. This often works and shows it is a Linksys setup problem. If can't even ping the device then you have another bigger problem.

    Finally, move the camera to under 5 feet of the wireless access point and then Setup will work. After setup then you can move camera out further.

    Cannot get online

    The hotels I have stayed in are open access wireless. Basically anyone has access whether they are guests or not. The hotels generally have some sort of internet mgmt that throws out some sort of advertisement before allowing you to get on the internet. Right click the wireless icon and view available networks, you might not even be on the motel's network.
