Question from papercowmoo

Friend code help?

I got a new DS and reset my game, and when I went to cooper and he said "no compatible access point in range. please check your connection settings." He gave me an option to go in to the Nintendo WFC Configuration so I went there. I tried "search for an access point" but it says "The access point's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS" and gives me some contact information. I have everything I need for wireless, but how do I connect?

Aldath asked for clarification:

Friend, same happens to me, I have no idea of what to do here...
Maybe we should try to go into the hlp provided by nintendo...
I mean, just look, this forums are dead x_x

Sables_Friend asked for clarification:

It's mostly becuase you dont have a reliable wifi source
or it's becuase you dont HAVE wifi around you.
I have my code for my game and neeed someone to buy something from my shop
so i can get the final stage of nook's shop! I have tons of bells laying
around my town but hardly any trees!

You should try getting the nintendo wifi dongle and install disk. My game did this for ages then I got the dongle and put it in my computer, installed it and connected to it... worked fine after that might just be your internet box mind.

Same thing happens to me and it really is annoying. I have no clue what to do and I believe the only solution is that you can't use wifi. T_T

Just search for your access point and put in your WEP code.

I went through the same thing. I re-set up my wireless network jsut today. Chances are your network was set up by default usin a pre-shared WPK key rather than WEP. Ps3 , Wii , PCs etc will connect fine. The DS doesn't support WPK. It is WEp friendly only. If you run your own network, you can log into your router & change the security which is a total PITA. If someone else runs your network...all you can do is ask.

VanillaChai answered:

I'm agreeing with Ninjalisacat on this one: The wireless is probably set up to use WPA security which the regular DS can't handle. The new DSI will be able to handle WPA without you needing to change anything, but if you want to fix it without waiting/buying the new DSI there's free tutorials online for "Setting up wireless security".

Just a word of warning though: if you don't know what you're doing in the router, it's easy to mess it up and then disable internet access for your whole house!

Another solution is to go to McDonald's and use their free wireless there; not quite as good, but it'll make it so you can go online.
Or go to a friend's house that has the wireless set up with WEP and use their wireless; you'll probably have to ask for the password to connect. Again, not as convienient as doing it from home.

MasterOfUbers answered:

Ok, if you got a new DS, you have to go to the WiFi Setup before you start your game (in the menu.) Because getting a new DS doesn't mean your connection settings transferred. Put in the WEP key (the password or number) to the wireless internet. (You may have a WPA key, or none at all.) Or you may not be in range of WiFi in your house.
