    manually add ip/gateway/dns settings, ds's are known to be picky about wifi, it sucks i could never connect it to my wifi, but the wii, ps3 and 360 i could. ds just sucks really bad at wifi connecting, just pure luck in my case, but yeah try manually inputing

    What is the security of your router at home? Are you using a DS, or something from the DSi family?

    The DS Lite can only connect to networks where the security is WEP or lower. As WEP is pretty old and pretty crap, you home network is probably WPA or WPA2. You'll need to access your router through your computer and change your security to either WEP or off.
