    Wait what? Is it WPA or is it WEP? Is it a DS or DSi? A regular DS or DSLite will only support WEP encryption.

    it is a DS lite
    Wep Key Length : 128 bits

    Default WEP Key to Use : 1

    Authentication : Both

    Wep Key :

    Security Mode : Auto (WPA or WPA2) - Personal

    Cipher Type : TKIP and AES

    so it has a lenght on 128bit and it seams it is to long for my nds >

    Sounds like you have a WPA key there. That said what you've put in your post IS confusing.

    ya i dont think it would work... i think the max length is 13 chars (correct me)
    it would better if u can remove the key completely *if possible*

    aah what a shame so I can not use 128bit on the NDS.
    Sure I could not use any Wep key but there are some neighbors who like to ride on my net sure they could but they seam to DL allot so my 100/Mbit line gets all slow on me thats why I use a 128bit the weird is I use a 32bit wep key but some how they still manage to connect to my internet but after I used 128bit key they could not connect.

    maybe if u enable mac address filtering... can u try that? see if yer router can do so as the DS has a mac address hence allow the connection to it only

    or if its possible, dont allow auto ip address assignment (DHCP i think) hence the neighbours will not know yer router's config addresses. I use the Intel Wifi PAN which doesnt assign ip addresses, gateway address, etc to the device tht connects to it so it may be a very good choice if u can disable DHCP

    hope tht helps and i read tht mac filtering can be difficult to set up so good luck and tell us what happened please!
