    Yeh i think you need the ds browser software. I beleive its already wireless so i guess you just connect to your wireless network and off u go

    Are you talking about playing online via Wi-Fi? Or do you mean actually browsing the Internet on the DS? If it is the latter one you need this: game.co.uk/DS/…er/
    If she is talking about playing online then you need a wireless router or a wireless usb connector that kiwinator mentioned.

    For playing multiplayer games online you don't need an additional cartridge, only the game cartridge is needed (as long as the game has online play features).

    Playing games wifi then it can just be set up no probs, no extras needed but to surf web u need browser cart

    would someone be kind enough to walk me through it then please

    when we click on neighbours internet it ask for a wep key, when we click on our connection it says "it is not supported",

    The only problem is that the DS only accepts WEP so you may need to set your router up as most come on WPA as standard.

    It varies from game to game, but usually if you go to the Wifi multiplayer option, it'll prompt you to setup your wireless network connection.

    At this point it'll take you to the DS Wireless setup screen, where you search for available networks, choose the one you want, enter the passkey etc. Once it has tested and verified the connection it'll take you back to the game and you should be able to play online.

    just checked, we have the wireless orange livebox with a wep key, but when click on it it just says not supported

    Here’s a guide on what settings to use to connect your Nintendo Dual Screen via its wi-fi connection (WFC) to your new Orange Livebox (should also work with Wanadoo Livebox). This is definitely not plug & play but what took me two hours should only take you five minutes now. This should also work exactly the same with your new DS Lite.

    1. Change your Livebox configuration. Go to configuration.adsl/ind…tml which should open your Livebox configuration page on your browser. There are two passwords you can use.

    First try username -> ‘admin’ and password -> ‘admin’. These are the default settings.

    Alternatively use your Orange or Wanadoo or even Freeserve login username and password here.

    Make a note of your Livebox name, mine is WANADOO-B7E8. Now go to Configuration -> Advanced -> Wireless and choose the WEP Security Only option. After you submit this your Livebox should flash a bit so give it 5 minutes to adjust itself. On the same window click to Security -> Firewall and choose ‘low’. As long as you have a Firewall on your PC you’ll still be safe. Now click ‘System Information’ as we’ll need all this info in a minute.

    2. Change your Nintendo DS settings. Plug in your game, Mario Kart DS for example, and go to the Nintendo WFC Settings Screen. Choose an empty connection and ‘Search for an Access Point’. You should see your new Livebox come up here as ‘WANADOO’ or ‘ORANGE’ followed by some numbers. Unfortunately you can also see the red lock icon but click it anyway and type in your WEP key as seen on the System Info screen we looked at earlier. Be careful typing this in and remember that you should only use letters A-F and numbers 0-9, no ‘i’s or ‘o’s, and turn CAPS LOCK on. Simple? Well hold on as we’re not finished yet and you’ll come up with an error if you try to connect.

    3. Change your DS Wi-fi settings manually. Now press the ‘Manual Setup’ button on the connection screen which takes you into the settings control panel. You should have a SSID number in there, thats good. And your WEP key should be entered in there too. The rest of the details can be found by refering to your Livebox System Info, but be careful as the requested numbers do not always match up with the correct fields. Therefore you must enter these values exactly how I have specified them:
    Auto-obtain IP Address = choose ‘No’
    IP Address = enter the ‘DHCP server end address’ value
    Subnet Mask = enter ‘255.255.255.0′
    Gateway = enter the ‘LAN IP address’ value
    Auto-obtain DNS = choose ‘No’
    Primary DNS = enter the ‘Primary DNS server’ value
    Secondary DNS = enter the ‘Secondary DNS server’ value

    4. The last bit, honest! Now go over to your Livebox and you should see a small USB-sized socket on the back next to two buttons marked 1 and 2. You need to press button 1. Then select ‘Test Connection’ on the NDS settings screen. With any luck you should get the green wireless icon on your NDS buzzing away with three bars! Now save the settings and play!

    This thread may be of use. It does look as though you can get it to work with the Orange Livebox, but it appears to take a bit more work than other routers.

    Edit: Hottoshop beat me to it!

    Hi sassie
    just found the above on the net. Sorry I hit enter by mistake before I posted this.
    If the above doesn't work shout, I'll get the boy on it here

    i have just been into my livebox settings and it is a wep kep not a WPA, now ever more chuffin cafuddled

    Sassie here's another walkthru, might be easier


    ***Warning: you will be asked to turn off the hardware firewall on your Orange Livebox. Make sure you have a software firewall activated on your machine - for example Mac OSX Firewall or Windows Vista’s Defender. Disabling a hardware firewall isn’t ideal, but it’s a bit fiddly otherwise. If you’re looking for the specific TCP and UDP ports to open, try this thread.***

    I’m using the procedure outlined here, explained in my own inimitable style…

    Make sure you have a software firewall installed and activated on each computer you use with your Orange Livebox.
    Open the administration panel on your Orange Livebox (configuration.adsl/ind…tml)
    Go to Configuration -> Advanced -> Wireless and select the WEP only option (note: this might affect the ability of computers connected to your Livebox to connect to the Internet)
    Go to Security -> Firewall and select the Low option.
    Go to System Information and leave that page up on your screen.
    On your Nintendo DS, go to a WFC compatible game (e.g. Mario Kart DS) and bring up the Nintendo WFC menu.
    Go to the WFC Settings screen and choose an empty connection (you have a choice of 3).
    Choose Search for an access point; the name of your Orange Livebox should come up. However, you won’t be able to connect as you haven’t entered the WEP key yet!
    Click on the connection you just set up and enter the details from the screen you should still have up on the screen of your computer. Make sure you have Auto-obtain IP address set to No. Enter the WEP key, default gateway (usually 192.168.1.1), Primary DNS (same as default gateway) and IP address (DHCP server end address from your computer’s screen unless you know what you’re doing). Also enter the Subnet Mask (usually 255.255.255.0)
    On the back of your Livebox press Button 1. This enables your Nintendo DS to ‘pair’ with the Livebox. On the DS, click on Test Connection at the top of the menu. It should say Connection Successful. If not, you’ve done something wrong, so go back and double-check!
    Click on Save Settings at the bottom of the menu, then get playing!
    Finally, now that your DS is connecting properly, change the configuration settings of the computers you connect to the Livebox to use WEP encryption.

    Lastly here's nintendo's own online help in connecting
