I'm assuming you are use a dodgy cart, I have played mario kart using r4 cart via wifi so i guess the answer is yes
#2
yes u can play online

i was online on mario kart last night
#3
that makes 3 of us -works great too

Yes it can, however the online protection for the DS(WEP I think) is so outdated now my newer laptop security (WPA I think) will not go that low so I can either set the security on my router to WEP for the DS or WPA for the laptop but I cannot have both running at the same time

Great point :thumbsup:

I got a new belkin wireless router the other month - I have to change it to WEP from the higher security settings, everything else - my laptop, psp, wii and ps3 all work fine on the higher security settings.

Very annoying

Yeah I only did it once and it was a pain so never did it again, so I got Mario Kart on the Wii.

The DS needs to update it's security levels so they are all compatible.

If you've got a legit game, there should be a section in the instructions.

Yes, we have a wireless router, its a Netgear DG834GT model.
Right, so far i have done the following & Im still stuck.
Ive put a wifi game into the DS, gone to wifi connection set-up, gone to connection 1 slot, then hit "search for an access point" - then DS says "The Access Points security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS".

So where do i go from here ?

HELP !
#12
Did it locate your access point?

Check what security level your router is set to. Is it WEP, WPA etc.
#13
No it didnt.
Sorry, dunno how to check that ?????
#14
Had the same problem went into settings on my orange livebox router and selected the option [COLOR="Red"]WPA OR WEP [/COLOR]saved the settings and it sorted it so i could use the internet with my computers and laptop and also go online with the ds at the same time.
#15
would one of these solve the problem everyone is having?
#16
Yes it works great,my son puts on 42 Alltime Classics and Mario Kart on Ds for online play.

It's more reliable than PS3 to play online with.
