    If I on wifi from a thing where you hook the computer up, would I have to go through everything on the first page?

    You may want to look at everything below the heading: Settings to keep things simple.

    I should point out that some IPS who offer Wireless routers as part of the connection actually give guides on how to get a DS online.

    Normally Setting up a DS isn't much harder than setting up the PC/Laptop.

    My Nintendo DS won't connect to the internet we have at my new house at university. It's a Virgin wireless router, I'm not sure whether that matters or not and if the specific type is important I can find out.

    The DS does know that the router is there, the problem is that 'The access point's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS'.

    So, is this a problem that can be fixed? It's not the DS, because it can connect fine at my hometown house. What do I have to do?

    Well, I've got some good news and bad news.

    The good news is that I beleive that your router is using WPA encoding, while the DS games can not use this. (DSi-enhanced and 3DS Games on DSi or 3DS can connect to the network.) You can alter the settings of the router, to support a DS. I think that you can find the way to set it up via Virgin's site.

    The bad news altering the settings will force every Wifi device to manually reconnect to router. If it's not yours, you may not even have access. Also it's less secure.

    Hmm. I'll have to look into doing that then. Seems too annoying to bother with just at the moment though. Thanks =)

    My nintendo DS Lite (or my 3DS for that matter) won't connect to the regular DS Wifi, but I'm pretty sure it's WEP security, this has happened in early 2010, when I got kicked out of the wifi room in Platinum all of a sudden.
    If it's needed, the type of router is a D-Link, DSL-2640T.
