Nintendo ds wifi don't like WPA help !

  kev-a 14:14 27 Aug 2007

Ok trying to connect a DS through my Netgear DG834GT, But the Nintendo doesn't support the level of encryption i am using WPA-PSK it only supports WEP.

Now my Dilemma is that i won't drop my Security to allow access for the DS but i want to connect.!!

Is there any other way i can get it online ?

The thought had occurred to me that i could go into the Router settings and allow access for the DS without Internet Security compromise ??

I also have a Linksys ADSL lying about but it starts getting complicated for me to set this type of connection up :(

Change your router security to WEP type a passkey and convert it to hexadecimal (router should do this for you)

change any wireless adaptors you have to WEP encryption connect from your pc (S) inputing new key

you will then still maintain security and be able to connect your DS
