It would be best if you have another wireless computer maybe a laptop so you can further isolate the problem, you can check if the other wireless will encounter the same problem. If that is not possible, make sure to check the wireless settings on the router, take note of the ssid, channel and wireless security. Try to reconnect again. if same problem exist, try changing the channel on the router.

Using Nintendo Wireless Adapter - No Connection Anymore


If available networks are found, it means that the wireless adapter is working just fine. In case of Wi-Fi, the device has to acquire an IP address from the wireless router and the mutual communication is not taking place. This has something to do with the wireless router. Check for any kind of security filtering like MAC address filtering or lower down the encryption technique to 64-bit WEP. Try connecting to even an unsecured network, then check for the automatically acquired IP address. It should never be starting with 169.254.xx.xx (Invalid)
If you have other wireless computers going online in the same network, without security and filtering, then it means that your DS Lite is not acquiring an IP address. In that critical case, you may have to statically or manually assign an IP address in the range of the router.
And lastly, as you said LAN connection is active, it would be because it doesn't face any hardships while connecting!

Thanks..
Do get back if you need further clarifications.

Trying to set up a second computer for wireless


What wireless mode is you router operating in? Does it support the cards on your other systems?

Do you have mac address control enabled?

Try disabling security temporarily to see if you can connect; your wireless connection may not be setup to authenticate properly.

I am trying to connect to the wireless in my new apartment. I have entered my network and password and that has worked fine. However, under Wireless Network Connection Status (i can get there by clicking...


On the Support tab - what does it say the "Address Type" ?
If its DHCP then check that on the TCP/IP properties;
If on "automatic IP address" then it wont take any entered IP address.

Do not put any IP address.

Check that "Obtain an IP address automatically" is checked and also "Obtain DNS server address automatically" is also checked. On wireless network tab check "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings".

On preferred network check that your wireless network is there, if not add it and move it up

Having Problem Acquiring IP Address


when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is 192.168.0.1 the range extender IP address has to change from 192.168.1.240 to 19.168.0.240. Hope that helps.

Card does not acquire ip address. repair does not work defaults to 169.254.244.38


What is the network adapter connected to - a modem or a router? Is there any other computer or device that is connected to that modem or router and is able to acquire an ip address? This would generally happen when the network adapter is not able to automatically negotiate with the connected device (which might have 10/100 ethernet ports). You can resolve this by forcing the network adapter speed to, for instance, 100 mbps. Please revert back with further observations.

Cannot connect wirelessly, but can through my network cable


After a few tries and re starts it may connect itself, but if not go to Start>Run, then type 'ipconfig /flushdns'. Try connecting again, but ensure your wireless card is set to obtain IP address automatically and you have enabled wireless connection and DHCP in your routers menu. Hope this helps
