    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.

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

    yes but i get kicked off my own network by freeloaders tring to get free internet so went secured but anyway didnt say didnt 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

    im on virgin and have a peak router if this helps

    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

    yes you can use with sky netgear router i use mine all the time

    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.
