I used to be able to connect to WiFi with my DS until we got a new Airport Extreme router... Now i couldnt figure out how to configure it that it would allow my DS access wile not affecting the connection of the other Apple products that it can easily see and are friends with...

You mean the Airport express in Hong Kong??? Lol, this is quite confusing. Hmm, I used to be able to go on Wi-Fi as well, but We got a new router and it's not compatible with the Nintendo DS. Go on the Wi-Fi website to check a list of the routers that are compatible. If you can't find it there, then you'll need to buy a Wi-Fi connection USB.

is this new router perhaps broadcasting in 802.11 G or N only with WPA security? these tend to be the new settings on most routers. your ds can not work with those settings as it requires 802.11b and no encryption/wep encryption only.

So all i have to change is WEP encryption and Network speed from N to B right?

The router settings said N then had in parenthesis (compatible with b/g). Should I change this or leave as is?

Hmm... The DS still reports it as incompatible encryption or something... The router says WEP encryption already.

if it says N its using N. get the wep key and add it to your nds. just run any wifi game and goto the config settings. you might want to also mac filter your router and then add the mac address of your nds for better security.
