    Also remember that a WEP key is either a 10- or 26- hex-digit code. If you have a passphrase, you'll need to see what the equivalent is in hex (should be in the router's WEP settings page).
    Well I set up the Wi-Fi on my Wii using WPA2 and it works just fine. So what makes that different from the Wi-Fi on my DS?

    The DS doesn't support WPA2, only WEP, which is a nuisance.

    OK, so I just got a laptop and I couldn't get the wireless internet to work. It turns out that it needs WPA to work so I had to change the settings from WEP to WPA. But, my DS needs WEP so I can trade with people. Is there any way to change my settings on either my laptop (to work with WEP) or to change the settings on the DS, so that works with WPA?

    I know HOW to change it on my router settings, so don't explain that to me. I just want to know if it's possible to use both laptop + DS with either WPA or WEP?

    If you have an answer for me, if you could quote or @ tag me that would be great. Thanks!

    That's very unusual, that your laptop won't work with WEP... out of curiosity, what operating system is on it?
    And, the DS definitely can't support WPA, it was released before WPA existed - so you'll need to get your laptop to work with WEP.

    My router was set to WEP before I got this latop a few days ago (so I could use it with my DS). We couldn't get the wireless internet to work (wired would work, obviously) so we had to ring the technical support line for it, and in the end, after many failed attempts, one of the guys figured out that it was router was set to the wrong thing and needed to be WPA for it to work. So now I can either use one or other, it seems, because when it was set to WEP it just wouldn't connect, but I'm not sure if there is some way to change it so that it does work (the tech guy didn't say, and I don't want to ring them for a fourth time, in all honesty).

    What is the operating system/how do I find it out? I don't really know all that much about stuff like this to be honest.

    I don't have a static IP address and I think it might be why I can't connect to Wi-Fi with my DS. I've tried all the recommended things in your walkthrough, and it hasn't helped, so do you know of anything I can do about this?
