Regarding last message

Hi, i dont have a wifi connector, i just have my laptop, 3 network dongle and a ds lite. Without using a connector why mite i not be getting the access point if the 3 is a wireless broadband?

Is it possibly the windows vista settings, or the fact im trying with the dongle im using. very confused why i dont get it easily.

    the laptop i bought from currys, it's a E-SYSTEM intel core T2080 1.73Ghz. It has wireless LAN b/g, 10/100 Mbit LAN. Works on Windows Vista. I just got it last yr.

    And my 3 usb modem is model E220 3G/HSDPA. I mostly get a 3G signal never really the HSDPA which i hear is stronger.

    Just to say that last night i changed a setting on my laptop, i went into wireless settings and manually put in the name being ds then WEP, then a password. When i tried my ds again it seemed to recognise something and it asked me to put in the WEP Key. I just dont know where to find it or if this laptop has wep in it.

    oh sorry, when i chose the setting i chose the wireless thru adhoc setting and think thats why it also was recognised and thats what i went into to put in the name of device, wep and password.

    Plus i have kept my wireless switch on at front of my laptop.

    Because you have to put your computer in a special mode called 'adhoc' for the ds lite to see it.

    Can you give me the model number of your laptop, and who made it?

Wep is just a 10digit key, try putting the same one on the laptop, and the DS

I'm trying to connect to my wifi in my house on my nintendo ds but every time I try it says the access points security settings are not supported for nintendo ds, what should I do?

The security settings on your wireless network's router aren't compatible with the DS. You can change the settings, but then you will have to adjust it for all other devices that use your wireless network. Here is a link to Nintendo's customer service site describing the issue in more detail.

My ds lite is 3 weeks old and dont accept games. all the game work in another ds. i sent it off and they told me its a pin connector AGS slot pefect and they want £31 to fix it. has anyone else had...


If its not under warranty you can always take it a part and have a look at it, it may just be slightly bent.

You can get a new Slot- 1 part from ebay for under £5 and stocked in the UK. If you have good/decent soldering skills its a doddle to replace.

I have written up a dismantling guide if you need help taking it apart (click here).

If you need anymore help or have any further questions feel free to message me via my profile page.

Got error code 51100 on nintenfo ds light dont know how to fix it went to but they didnt help

Error Code: 51100 The WEP key for the Access Point you are attempting to connect to has changed since you last connected.
What to do: Verify the Access Point's WEP Key is entered correctly into the Nintendo DS. If your router has slots for more than one WEP key, the first (#1) must be the one selected on your router. If you need assistance, click here and select your router manufacturer and model number. If available, our router pages can provide specific steps and information that may help you with your router's WEP Key.
If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
  • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
  • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
  • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
  • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector

Dsi cant exits ds lites town without blue screen

Try updating your software in your dsi? Keep in mind that AC was intended for ds not dsi so there is some bugs. Just like how AR(action ready codes) wont work for dsi, it just wasn't made for dsi.

solution? buy a ds? gamestop sell used ds for 70ish dollars or so.

Ds lite connection

Have you considered changing your router from WPA to WEP? That would solve your problem with getting your DS online, although it would reduce the security of your home network. But some security is better than none. As far as the WiFi Max dongle, that's just a simple version of a wireless router and since you already have one it's kind of redundant. You might want to put it up on E-Bay and see if you can make some of your money back.

Nintendogs experience microphone problem


It is not the game that is here the problem. It is the DS Lite.
Your microphone is disabled by a defective connector at the front of your DS Lite.

I explain...

On the front left of youre DS Lite, there is a headset connection. Inside this connector (soldered on the mainboard of the DS Lite) there is a contact that shuts down the microphone on the top screen enclosure if this headset connector is used.
For some kind of reason (and I see a lot of them), this internal switch stay closed when a headset was inserted and removed again Result.....the microphone in the enclosure is always off.
I've even seen this problem without ever using a headset and the front connector.
The only way to solve your problem is to replace this headset connector by Nintendo or a DS Lite repair service

Does anyone know if you can connect ds to internet using a mobile dongle?

for internet with the ds, u dont plug anything in its all wireless. the '3' dongle gives u wireless internet which is good. to set up internet on your ds, put in a wifi compatible game, and wherever in that game there is an option for NINTENDO WFC CONNECTION (it may change, in mario kart the option is on a main screen, animal crossing talk to ppl) go into that and tap a blank internet connection box and search for an access point. when its found ur 3 internet itll connect. u can now play internet games on ur ds when ur neer that access point. hope i helped

I have a e-system laptop with windows vista, i use a 3 ubs brodband . I want to play wifi games on my ds lite but i keep getting a message saying that an access point is not found. Without using a wifi usb...

You would need to set the Wifi Usb Connector in adhok mode You will then need to Bridge the connection between the wifi usb connection with your internet connection.

You could do that, or buy a wireless router (these serve as an access point)

Wifi connecting

first off you need to either have a wifi connection in you house or by the wifi usb connector and cd rom from nintendo ( about 20 or less if you find it used) I would recommend buying the connector because it is easier to use.

Ibm think pad t30


To my knowledge, your laptop (IBM ThinkPad X30 2672) does not have any built-in WiFi. It's modes of connection are IrDA, modem, Ethernet, USP, Firewire aside from the regular serial & parallel. This would indicate that if you are wireless you either have a USB dongle or PCMCIA card. Please post back with your WiFi brand/model and your Operating System. Further, please post back likewise your WiFi AP/Router brand/model.

The message "a network cable is unplugged" pertains to the absence of a lan cable connected to your Ethernet port.

Good luck, kind regards and will await your second post.
