You may need to check your router's settings to troubleshoot the following symptoms. If you are not sure how to change the settings, please consult your router manual, your router manufacturer, or the internet service provider that installed your router. You may also visit support.nintendo.com for more information on router settings.
Enter WEP Key / WEP Key incorrect (Access Point lock icon is red).
• You will need to check your router settings through your computer to get your WEP Key.
Many routers offer multiple WEP Key entry areas (usually numbered 1 through 4).
The Nintendo DS is only compatible with the WEP Key entered in the first (#1) area.
Make sure you are entering the actual WEP Key and not a Pass Phrase.
If the WEP Key in your router settings is hidden (i.e. *****), then you may need to manually enter a WEP key. Use a 10 digit number that is easy for you to remember.
Security Setting is incompatible or not valid (Access point lock icon is grey).
• WEP is the only security that the Nintendo DS is compatible with. You will need to change the security on your router to WEP or you might consider purchasing a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector (see page14). This will allow you to access the internet without impacting the security settings of your home router.
Connection test unsuccessful or unable to connect to Nintendo WFC.
• Move closer to the access point or re-orient yourself so there is nothing between you and the access point. Review wireless communication guidelines on page 24.
• Make sure you have the latest Firmware Update for your router. Check with the router manufacturer or the internet service provider that gave you the router.
• Make sure the Transmission Rate of your router is set to transmit at a rate of 1 to 2 mbps (megabits per second). Most routers transmit at a much higher rate, but are able to adjust for devices that transmit at a slower rate. Your router may have this as
a setting that might need to be adjusted. Some routers may have settings with an option like "Turbo Boost" or "G-Nitro." These are settings which maintain a high transmission rate and the Nintendo DS will not be able to connect with the router.
You will need to disable this option when connecting with the Nintendo DS.
• Make sure your router is compatible with 802.11b. If your router uses 802.11g, it may default to only the "g" band. This setting will not work with the DS. Check your router's settings (typically in the "Wireless" tab) and make sure that it is set to "Auto," "Mixed," or something similar.
• Change the Wireless Channel of your router. If there are other wireless devices in the area, they can interfere with the signal so much that the DS will not be able to connect to the router. Changing the wireless channel on your router may help.
Typically, the channel settings will be found in the router's main "Wireless" tab.
• Your access point may have Mac Filtering enabled. Check your router settings through your computer. You may need to enter your Nintendo DS MAC address.
• Your access point may not be broadcasting its SSID. Check your router settings through your computer and either set your router to broadcast SSID, or manually enter the SSID into the Manual Setup screens of your Nintendo DS.
• Try assigning the Nintendo DS a static IP address. Access your router's settings and find the available range of IP addresses (This is typically found within the DHCP information.). When you find this information, select one of the available IP addresses and enter this through the Manual Setup screens of your Nintendo DS. Support Nintendo DS
