    You can't. You HAVE to use a game with wifi to set it up, since there is no option to do so in the menu.

    u need to play a game like mario kart or something else that has wifi access and set it up from within the game

    you can just load the game to your flash cart and run it to set up the wifi, that will set it up for homebrew too

    Your friend may have been using a DSi/XL. THEY can access the WiFi menu outside of a game.

    The original DS and DS Lite cannot.

    Other than using a NDS game (either a retail game or a 'ROM') there is no way to access the WiFi setup.

    However, DSOrganize (don't use 3.2! use the older one) can set up and modify WiFi connections, however it is not as pretty and more for advanced users.
