    So, you've logged into your router and can't find it?

    Sure it isn't right under the bar code on the router?

    No, its not under the barcode on the router, the thing in barcode for router is a 26 digit thing and my serial Number.
    if it only supports WEP, do i ahve to change WPA to Wep every time i want to Wi-Fi???

    Yes.
    Same problem here, in order to go online with my DS, I had to deactivate WPA2 in my router config...It's not wise to leave your WLAN connection unprotected if you don't know your neighbourhood, though
