    Default How to get friend code/connection problems

    I recently got my 1st gen VI game, SS, and I was wondering how do I get my friend code. I have a Pal Pad and every time I try and talk to the assistants downstairs in a pokemon centre I manage to get into the Nintendo Wi-Fi Club but then I get Error 51099.

    Please help.

    You have to have a wi-fi in order to get your friend code. Otherwise, you can't get it.

    Yes, and there also has to be on a WEP (I think) setting.

    ^ it is short for Wireless Ecrption Password or passcode.

    basically, it is like a fire wall for your wi-fi. you must put in the code in your Nintendo Wi-fi connection setting whe you start up your game (or in the actual settings themselves if you're using a DSi) you should have one from your service provider. keep in mind, though, not everyone nessecarily has one. I'm just saying if you have one, what to do with it.

    Without posting it in this forum, how many digits is it?

    A WEP key is also 8 characters long, so that sounds about right. However, it could also just be your IP Address you are getting confused with, your subnet mask, or a list of things it might not be, so let me just walk you through how to get it quickly.

    Click Start, go to Run and type in 'cmd'. When the logbox opens up type in 'ipconfig/all'.
    There, if done successfully, a list of digits and the like will appear. Note down the 8 digit number next to IP Address. Type those numbers, including the .'s into your Internet Browser. Then, you will be redirected to your routers homepage. Straight on the mainpage should be a line that states 'WAN IP' or 'WEP IP'. For you, hopefully, it should say WEP. The number next to it is your WEP.

    Hope this helps, please post if you need more help finding it.

    This is probably the most ironic/useless help I've ever given someone on the Tech Help forum, and I do apologise, but here goes;

    I too have a WAP address rather than a WEP address, but I'm on Wi-Fi almost daily. :P
    When inserting your Wi-Fi connection setup information in to your DS, sometimes you can get by with just your SSID.

    Again, put your IP Address in to your browser and find a box of information that says 'WLAN Settings'. There, should be a line with your SSID and the name of it. Punch that name in to your DS and save it and test. It's very chancey, but I have a further suggestion afterwards.

    Okay. I know how we can fix this.

    Once more, and hopefully for the last time ever, go to your routers homepage (using your IP Address) and go to the Security tab. Your computer, given that you are on a WPA connection should say WPA or WPA-PSK in terms of Security Mode. Simply change it to 64b WEP or 128 WEP. 128 WEP will probably be better for you. You mentioned knowing your passphrase earlier, so simply put that when it asks you it, if you still remember. If not, hex-generating one is also fine. Ensure you have anti-viruses or firewalls up whilst doing this to be safe. Also, if you have a utility like most Belkin or Linksys routers do, ensure you modify that appropriately too.
