    I've tried EVERYTHING to connect to wifi but its still not letting me, I've disabled my firewall, and enabled it) turned on WEP and WPA then switched them both off yet i still get error messages when i try to connect.

    I don't know if this is the problem but, I can't find my DNS and my DEFAULT GATEWAY, and i don't know where to obtain them. I know my IP address and SUBNET MASK, but it still doesn't let me connect, I also tried to configure it manually but I need the DNS and default gateway.

    Any help would do, thanks.

    your router should give you all the settings you need

    failing that, type ipconfig /all in command prompt

    Thanks for that, but it still doesn't let me connect! Heres the error message i keep getting: -Windos could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: TCP/IP is not enabled for this connection. Cannot proceed.

    For assistance, contact the person who manages your network.-

    I've got no idea on what that means.

    From Where???
    You need the following...

    WEP 64/128 enabled, and set a WEP key
    enable SSID broadcast set to 'on'
    mode B or G & B as the NDS can only send data cross B networks.
    channel 1, 6 or 11
    disable any range features like rangeboost or rangemax settings (netgear)

    in your NDS search for your network when its all set, and then add your WEP key

    in your router add your NDS MAC address. this is optional but will give you greater security on a wep network.

    if this fails then either you skipped something or your router is not installed correctly.
    you can call the nintendo help desk (dial the number on the back of your NDS) for free help with setting up your network.
