I connect mine through my wireless router. If you have a BT HomeHub you're sorted - it's simply a question of putting in the name and password for the network (printed on the back).

However, I found you can't connect to a Sky router (Netgear).

So it's worth trying with your wireless router (if you have one). If you don't have a wireless router, or no router at all, you'll need a wireless dongle. Don't buy an official one though, way overpriced, just get a cheap one.

You can also connect your DS to the internet without the DS Browser, for playing multiplayer games etc. The DS Browser allows you to browse the web.

right so how do i get to the part of the ds where u put password etc in ?

I bet if you took the security off of your wireless it would work.

If you have a ds game which allows online multiplayer etc it will prompt for it i am assuming it does also on the browser, maybe settings somewhere, if you have a wireless network then it should just connect to that as long as you have the right passwords etc

Have you gone into the setup of the browser, it should tell you in the instructions, do a search to see if it can find the network then take it from there
#10
yes you can use with sky netgear router i use mine all the time
#11
i dont have a netgear browser

You can use WEP security on a wireless router & have the DS connect to it but you cannot use the more secure WPA security as the DS doesn't support this

think mine wep key


Just an example - 42 classics

select Multiplayer, Nintendo WFC, Wi-Fi Setting, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings, Choose Connection 1,2 or 3, Search for an Access Point. It should then find your network, put in your WEP key & ok.
