    See if it works 'out of the box' first. Plug it into your modem and use your DS's wireless connection settings to search for an access point and test the connection.. Tell me if that works and I'll try to help the best as I can.

    enable DHCP. makes life a little easier.
    to find your MAC address goto Nintendo Wi-Fi Setup screen then click (touch) "options", then click "System Information." it should be there.

    i have to enter a ip address in the DHCP setting what should i write in there?
    what does the lease option do?
    what channel should the wifi be running on and should it be on ?
    what Transmission Mode should it be on?

    1) set it to auto.
    2) don't know.
    3) 11 is best for nintendo stuff and yes.
    4) I think (not sure) that might be the router/access point toggle. set it to both if you can otherwise I'm not sure.

    You're going to destroy something because you don't want to take the time to learn how to use it? That's quite sad.

    Not strictly true... I have read pages and pages about hot to set up my DS with my router and it still won't frikken work.......
    I too am tempted to lamp the shite out of both of them - it's so frustrating!!! Especially when ppl assume that you are
    a. a total know nothing asshole
    and
    b. too damn lazy to investigate the problem for yourself, and point you to the Nintendowifi.com website (as if you couldn't think of this for yourself)
