    I have A problem with the WiFi only for the DS,
    Though...
    My brothers PSP doesn't have the same problem, it connects properly without any trouble.

    After about 3 hours of searching and searching i think the problem is...
    That Nintendo DS doesn't support the WPA key in the modems, but the PSP does.

    I know the easiest way to get around this is change the WPA key Back to WEP.
    BUT...

    I want to know if there is a way to get the WiFi Working again on the DS without having to change to WEP? [​IMG]

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Sorry, but you're going to have to change it back to WEP. I had the same problem myself, and I couldn't find any other way.

    Edit:

    Or, you could get a USB Wi-Fi connector (which allows you to connect to wifi on the DS through your PC), but it's not really worth it in my opinion.

    Thanks you all helped..

    but there is one problem, my dad and my Big brother say that WEP isnt the most protective internet so they wont change it......
    And..

    I have the DS WiFi USB dongle but when i click allow access, the DS Connectivity thing reaches max, but then near the end it just goes down to red and says it cant find anything......

    Any Help for that?

    thanks.

    tell your dad and your big brother to stop being paranoid of the 10yr old script kiddie who lives within 30 feet of your router. mac filter the router and don't worry about it. let say some does crack your wep key and get on... you will notice the ip on the router at which point you can just change the wep key again.

    for games you don't need wep set to public broadcast... no one will even know its there.
