Getting Online

My DS can't detect my Wi-Fi network, even when I stand right next to my router while holding the system. Other devices in my house have no problem connecting wirelessly. Does anyone know something I can try?

Question #1: Is your Wi-Fi encrypted?

If yes, is the encryption WEP or WPA?

If it's WPA, the DS won't be able to connect.

It can connect to WEP.

The Nintendo website has an entire section devoted to troubleshooting your wireless connection and getting your router to work with your DS.

I gonna try changing the channel of my router. When ever a cordless phone rings my computer loses the connection to it anyway. Does anyone have a channel to recommend to solve both problems?

I do not like that I have to use weaker wifi encryption to get my DS to work with it.

I know this is old, but I just happened to run across it. If you have your SSID hidden or not broadcasting, that could be part of the problem.
