If you are having trouble setting up your WiFi connection in Diamond/Pearl, or have questions concerning it, ask here.

Anything relating to connecting to the Global Trading Station should be asked here.

Make sure you detail your problem as fully as you can. Saying "I can't connect, help me" won't get you any help.

How do we register friends? I believe if this is right, you go to your Pal Pad, put in your friend's name, and then put in their code numbers? HOw could you kind of make contact with the ones you register if you live say in the West Coast and they lived in say Japan? THat's the part I'm kind of lost on.

On the GTC, do I put out a Pokemon from my team as trade offer, and then seek the Pokemon I want? How do I know which is a good deal or a bad deal since I see so many of this going around the NFL on draft day? I don't want people to get upset that I'm offering a bad Pokemon in their opinion.

Yea, that's right.
HOw could you kind of make contact with the ones you register if you live say in the West Coast and they lived in say Japan? THat's the part I'm kind of lost on.
In game, you can contact them if they are using the WiFi. If they aren't connected, then you'll need to contact them some other way (Internet, e-mail, phone, whatever).
On the GTC, do I put out a Pokemon from my team as trade offer, and then seek the Pokemon I want? How do I know which is a good deal or a bad deal since I see so many of this going around the NFL on draft day? I don't want people to get upset that I'm offering a bad Pokemon in their opinion.
Well, depends on the trade. If you're offering Starly for Mew, yea, I don't think anyone would trade that. Basically, just trade what you're willing to part with for that particular Pokemon. You never know until you try.

Um, when you do something on Wifi, do they automatically use your first Wifi connection that you set up? Because there're three connections that you can set up.

I just put up a Quagsire level 21 and requested a level 9 Glameow. If I put up the trade last night, should I check the GTC every 24 hours or so and see if anybody worldwide took the trade? HOw would I then know my trade was accepted, would the Glameow be standing there?

Oh, the 3 connections, that I believe is only for an establishment you are at, like McDonalds from waht I heard. I tried it and it never found an access source from my house because I didn't press the set up YOUR USB connection. :oops:

Yes.

You use the one you've selected when you enter the Nintendo WFC options from the main game menu.

I have two connections, one for home, one for work... but I still can't find out the access point name for the work connection :(

No, that's wrong. You got to pick the connect to YOUR USB option. I went through the same mistake myself and then I found out I hit the wrong connection. Once I did that, it connected right away. I just did a Pokemon trade today and I got 2 online battles lined up once we figure out my time zone from california.

How can i find the wep key on my computer so that i can set up wifi?

You don't need a WEP key to set up WiFi, it's just that WEP key is the only encryption that you can use while your DS is connected to WiFI.

Now, can someone help me with this?
The Nintendo help page says that my Wireless router isn't compatible with WiFi.
Does that mean that the only two options open to me are to get a new router, or to get one of them WiFi USB Connecter things?
However, I would also like to ask if you need to have the CD to use the USB WiFi connector.

What Router do you have, Lord Voldemort?

I just put up a Quagsire level 21 and requested a level 9 Glameow. If I put up the trade last night, should I check the GTC every 24 hours or so and see if anybody worldwide took the trade? HOw would I then know my trade was accepted, would the Glameow be standing there?
You can check it whenever you want, be it 24 hrs or 72. You'll know the trade goes through when you first sign back in to the GTS. If your Pokemon was accepted by someone else, it'll start the trading scene and give you whatever you wanted. If it wasn't accepted yet, you won't see any trading video.
yeah i'm having trouble with connect my wifi too. i got my ds connected to the usb connector but everytime i pick connection 1 and search for an access point it says,"no access point in range," and if i go to AOSS it can't detect anything. do i gotta change anything to make it work? it's really getting annoying.
You don't connect to the USB adapter, you want to connect to the actual Router iteslf. Bascially, the DS is it's own adapter, searching for the Router to connect with.
How can i find the wep key on my computer so that i can set up wifi?
The WEP key can be found by opening your Router program on your computer. It's usually under Settings, but I'd check your router instructions for better detail, since I don't know which system you're using.

Yeah, tell me about it. I ask for a Turtwig or a Chimchar or even a male Piplup for mating and gee whiz...it's like if I give them a legendary which is a first round choice in NFL terms, then they'll give me their 7th round pick in the Turtwig/Chimchar! That is just not how you do a trade in sports, you say trade Chimchar and you send them your Piplup or Turtwig. You trade Mime Jr. for a Bonsly. That's how good trades work, but man, the Japan players have so much illogic in what they want!

I noticed that, too.
I saw on another forum that people were getting starters simply by putting up a Magikarp and requesting the starter they wanted. That's how I got my Piplup, although its name was in Japanese.

The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector is unable to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Please read the following information:

* Are you using an anti-virus or firewall security program (such as Norton, Symantec, Zone Alarm, etc.)? If so, please read the following:
o Can you add a device or application to the "allowed list"? Check for an option to "add" the registration tool to its list of allowed applications. Test the connection after adding the registration tool.
o Disable the personal firewall portion of the software*. Test the connection.
o Disable the entire security program, and test the connection*.

* Does your Internet Service Provider (ISP) require you to sign in each time you wish to connect to the internet?
Some popular ISPs require a login each time you wish to connect, instead of an "always on" connection. Because the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector does not have a login tool to work these types of connections, the USB Connector may be incompatible with your home network. You may want to contact your ISP, or purchase a compatible router instead of using the USB Connector. Click here for help finding a compatible router.

* Are you using a router? Most routers have built-in firewalls. Some firewall settings could interfere with the USB Connector. Try logging into the router using its default IP address (consult the router's owner's manual for assistance) and lowering the security or disabling the firewall altogether*.

* If the above information does not work, it is possible that the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector is incompatible with your home network. You may want to consider purchasing a compatible router. Click here to view our list of router rankings.

*While Nintendo provides this information for our consumers' use, it is up to each consumer to determine what security needs they have for their own networks, and to decide how best to configure their network settings to meet those needs.

I don't remember if I linked the Nintendowifi.com page in this thread or another, but it is an excellent site to go to for nintendo wifi troubleshooting. Even has downloadable manuals.

I can't seem to connect to things such as the Global Trade Station. It says:

No compatible access point in range. Check your connection settings and try again. For help, visit www.nintendowifi.com (51100)

When I went to the Nintendo Wifi screen to chang the settings I tested the connection and it said connected. And I am currently on the internet.. so I really have no clue why it is not working...

I connect to the WFC, no problems. The people I want to trade with do, too. But when they invite me, and I apply, after a couple of minutes, I'm DC'd. The same happens to them, though, when I'm the one who invites.

What am I doing wrong? o.O I figured not having the 1st badge was the problem, but it still acts up now. Help me! (Urgent, please answer ASAP.)

Oh, well, it says that router isn't compatible, you'll need to buy another one. I'm not familiar with the Nintendo Wifi Connector, so I can't help with that question.

It sounds like your setttings aren't set up correctly on your DS. I'd go back and make sure everything is set up correctly. If that doesn't work, it may by your router not letting you access, so you'd have to check those settings too.
whenever I test my conectoin right beside my router(wireless) it always turns up as
"Error code 25100

unable to connect to nintendo wi fi connection.confirm connection settings and access point settings"

What should I do?
As I just said above, you should check to make sure both DS and Router settings are correctly set up and compatible.
I've got a problem, and I don't know how to fix it, at all.

I connect to the WFC, no problems. The people I want to trade with do, too. But when they invite me, and I apply, after a couple of minutes, I'm DC'd. The same happens to them, though, when I'm the one who invites.

It might be the difference with connections speeds between you and the other people. Are they able to trade/battle with other people? If it's just you they can't trade with, then there's something wrong with your router that's interfering with WiFi transactions. It may have something to do with your Computer's Firewall. Check those settings, change if necessary.

I'm not a Mac user, so the following is purly speculation. Sorry if it doesn't help.

The WEP is the password on the router itself, which prevents access from outside sources unless they have the password. As far as I know, the computer itself doesn't have a WEP key. I'd doublecheck your router settings, because that's where it should be located.

05-09-2007, 12:10 AM
I have looked at the physical router itself (which is an approved Comcast Linksys model WCG200-CC and is wireless broadband), and the number on the bottom of that is not the WEP key. When i try to connect the airport, it asks for the WEP key as well (i heard that turning on airport might make the DS online accessable). On a Mac, there isn't a category of router security, there is only a network option, where I do not think I have found the code at. The Mac's Harddrive also does not have this information.
Would it possible to get Comcast to tell me the WEP key if they are likely to know? I was not present at the installation (where it was probably established), and my mom doesn't remember it (computer spaz). Does any of this info help? thanks!

Teo
05-10-2007, 11:31 AM
Alright, so let me get this straight, you have two routers in the area? One is located in your house and another that is possibly a neighbors? You also don't know who your Internet Provider is?

What comes to first thought at your problem is that it might just possibly be a glitch with the GTS I've only gotten something similar to that once. It hasn't happened again. The next problem might be with your ISP, being that it is experiencing problems. Lastly, the router itself.

On a side note: I do have a Riolu for trade. just PM me the offer.

Lord Torterra
05-10-2007, 11:36 AM
wait...by ISP do you mean like cable? srry, i dont know much about wifi.
on side note, i pmed u my offer for riolu, as long as its untrained and just hatched.

Teo
05-10-2007, 11:42 AM
Yup! ISP means cable! Lol! Its alright, it has nothing to do with wi-fi. Well, it does, but it refers back to your connection itself. Cable is known for going down and up. Even though it may be quick, its not often very reliable.

Anyways, I'm thinking it has to be with the GTS. Its been known to give odd errors here and there.

Lord Torterra
05-10-2007, 11:47 AM

The WEP isn't physically located on anything. It is a password that someone has typed into the Router Settings. I'd probably call Comcast about it, since they were the ones who set it up, and probably put in the WEP key code.
this might sound like a dumb question but what is the cheapest wifi connector, does it work for a windows vista and can you actually use a usb cable instead?

Cheapest, probably $30-35. If you want a good router, with faster speeds, and a little better protection, $45-55 is not that much more to pay. As far as working with Windows Vista, you should check the System Requirements located on the box or simply ask the clerk at the store.

Then it goes all 3 bars and goes green but after a minute it says automatically disconnecting from GTS, returning you to receptionist...mind you all of my wifi settings are good, wep key and everything. Does anyone know what the problem is?

Okay we all know the Nintendo DS is diffrent from the one in US. And We can't play games from the US either.
But on online shops I find this DS/Wii Wifi USB Adapter. But those are shops from the US!
Does anyone know if this thing will work on the Nintendo DS from Europe? Because I don't find any europpean sites which sell it... :S

Thanks a lot!
-Mesqueeb


This is confusing for me
Someone told me this:
DS's are usable worldwide, and Wifi isn't region specific. I could stick a japanese Pokémon Diamond into my Canadian DS and it will work fine.
Is it?

But why can't I play US-Dvd's on my computer, because we use diffrent region codes to protect our own Economy! Isn't this the same with nintendo games! If it's all the same I could just buy cheap games in US and sell it expensive in Europe right?

And if it's identical, why do they bother to make a Europe and US release? There is really NO diffrence between the game from Europe, and the one from US, I thougth because they have to change the region-code stuff that's why we have a later release date right?
Otherwise everyone in Europe would've just let their Diamond and Pearl version shipped in from US a month ago!

I am confused please clarify some for me?

The DS works with games from everywhere. There is no region encoding and it's not the same like with DVDs.
IIRC the DVD region encoding is to protect the DVDs from being seen ealier than they should. Some shows air a lot later in other countries, if it was region free, they could just get the DVDs from the US and not even bother watching.

The DS games probably have a separate release for Europe, because the games need to be translated (not everyone in Europe will get English games).
Most online shops don't ship the US games to Europe, because Nintendo also wants their European sellers to make money.

I'm not sure if everything I said is correct, but that's what I believe.

Mesqueeb
05-13-2007, 06:40 PM
But I am from Belgium! They never translate anything, and neither do we want that! The game just stays in plain old English. :D
So there must be SOME reason why the game didn't launch equally here, with the release of the US... Right?

You set up the WEP key in your router's settings which are found at a certain IP address (it's 192.168.0.1 for me, it might be different for your router -check the manual).

No adapter necessary. All you have to do is apply the settings in game to match your Router's settings, and you're good to go.

One thing I might note on setting up WiFi when using the adapter. I'm not sure about this, but it's a problem I've been having.

Have a free USB port to use. If you have any other external hardware device registered using that USB port, then chances are you'll have this problem.

Whenever I plug in my USB adapter and start up the registration tool thing (which I FINALLY got to install properly!), my computer would freak out and restart itself. I don't know how to fix this, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

To answer the question regarding why we have to wait for the European Release when the US is already in English: Licencing.

I still think that the gap is too long though. And people are gonna buy this game from eBay in the UK.

US price: $34.99.
UK price: Ł29.99 (Roughly $57).

17.5% of that is Tax in this Country.

Go to a wireless hotspot or buy a DS WiFi Adapter.

Then when u start up pokemon diamond go to Nintendo WFC settings, search for the hotspot u have and click on done.

OR go to Connect to WiFi adapter and folow the shown directions.

My question is:

When I try to deposit a pokemon on the GTS it says "Comunication Error...". Yet I can easily trade with ones already on the GTS and through FCs... Help?

I heard somewhere that there is something to prevent hacked Pokémon being offered on the GTS. If they've got moves they usually can't learn or were caught at a level they can't be caught at.
Perhaps there is something wrong with your Mew.

Do you have a lock or firewall on your wireless connection? That could be blocking it from connecting, if so, you need to set the firewall to allow your ds to connect.

AshMistyMayfan
05-23-2007, 04:40 PM
Did you click on CONNECT TO YOUR USB if you are doing this at your home? I did the same thing with mine and got nothing out of 'Connect 1, 2, or 3'. You can only use Connect 1, 2, or 3 when you are at say McDonalds.

ALso, check your firewall.
You might also have to check your high speed modem. There was something about the IP setting that might have to be changed from .2 to .1 in the numbers, you have to go to Nintendo's site for that info.

Yggdrasill
05-23-2007, 04:47 PM
There is a certain firewall (I think it's "ZeroAlert", or something similar anyway) which is impossible for the DS to get passed, if you have this firewall then you will either have to:

-Disable it
-Un-install it

Nintendo have confirmed this by the way, so I'm not making stuff up.

Kairyu
05-23-2007, 04:47 PM
What are you trying to do?

If you're trying to trade or something, there isn't an on switch in which you can locate on the main DS screen.

Whenever you go to what you're aiming to do, say trade, the game will tap into the connection by itself if it's there.

Thought I'd explain that since it really confused me when first getting my DS.

And if that didn't answer it... Hm... check the sticky. :happy:

I guess this could already be in here somewhere, but I didn't check. I have trouble connecting to wifi. Whenever my ds tries to connect in the GTS or wifi room in a pokemon center, it will be connecting for like half a minute, then at the last second the bars in the top right corner will turn red and it will say that my ds has connection issues. But after like 17 tries, it usually works, and I never get disconnected after getting connected. I know the wireless connection in my house is fine, because I rarely ever have trouble with it on my laptop. Could this be a problem with my DS?

You can't ask for a Pokemon in the GTS unless you have seen it. There's nothing you can do about that. Your best chance is to find someone to trade with. I'm sure plenty of people here can help.

I was looking for Tyranitars and found a level 100 shiny holding a master ball and all the person wanted was Mime Jr. I was lucky enough to have the Mime JR and got the trade off! It even had good stats 399 attack but speed was only 160 but everything else was mid 200s so I'm happy. Today I was trading to get a shiny Dialga it only required a shellder but when I tried to trade it kicked me off probably because a whole bunch of people were trying to get it as well.

Yes, the USB needs to have wi-fi, hence the name "WiFi Connection". It'll usually say "Wireless" somewhere on the USB.

How can you check if your computer has a wireless router and check if you have firewall connected?

Routers don't come with computers. Usually they're additional pieces of hardware outside of it all, used primarily so more than 1 computer can connect to the internet with just 1 modem. It means that if you don't know you have a router, chances are you don't.

A screen says:

'Connect the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.
Once the device is connected, please wait a moment.'

On my DS it says that the Connector can't be found.
The USB Connector is connected, so I don't know what's going on. =_=

You will need 2 things: Wi-Fi connectivity and Pal Pad.

To find your friend code, go to the basement in the Pokemon Center and talk to the middle person. She will let you connect to the Wi-Fi club, where you will be given your Friend Code. Then you can check your Pal Pad to see your Friend Code anytime.

Midnight- All I can suggest is checking to see if the USB was set up correctly on the computer. Check the Settings.

The WEP code is a password that you put on your router to protect your computer from outside access. Go into your Router's settings to find the WEP code.

It should work with Vista.
I did; it says that there is low connectivity.
With low connectivity, it may be hard to estabolish a connection. Do you have Dial Up or DSL, because Dial Up could also have something to do with the bad connection.

The Underground can't be played over Wifi. It's a local connection, meaning whomever is in the general area around your DS. You'll have to get together with your friends if you want to play Underground. And you can add friends in the Pal Pad as long as you know their Friend Code.

Wow, buddy, watch the double posting.

You can't get a wi-fi.
But, you can get something that enables you to use it.
What you meant is a wireless router, and that, you can buy in big name stores like Wal-Mart, Target and best Buy or Circuit City.

Or you could be a USB adaptor for your computer from nintendo and that'll work as well.:wink:

The Price also varies among the stores and also where you live because of taxes.:oops:
S O can't be exact, but I'd say anywhere from $30 - $50.

If you go for a router, be sure to check out Nintendo's WiFi site to see which ones are compatible.

I try answering when I can, but I don't know everything. :ermm: Double check the settings on the computer, to see if they are correct. You can also try restarting the Router. Also, your Firewall might be limiting access; turning it off might help, but it's risky. If those don't help, calling Nintendo might be best.

07-05-2007, 02:12 PM
but does searching for it work without WEP key

The way it works is WEP etc, is a just a WiFi security measure, the Connection is still transmitted and thus can be found by the DS when your search for it, but the Connection level indicator (The little thing with 3 bars that can either be Gray, Red, Yellow or Green) will have a little padlock icon in the 'Locked' position, meaning the connection is protected.

The trouble is, the DS is only programed to be able to handle WEP security (Basically a 5 letter password, or WEP key), and obviously anything else is more complex to provide a great level of protection. Now, while the DS can see the connection, it cannot communicate over it, due to it being protected.

So you should be able to find the connection regardless of what Security is used, but you just can't use it unless it is WEP, and you have the correct WEP key programed into the DS.

Okay, I have no trouble getting onto wifi by going to the bottom floor of a pkmn center, and i talk to the lady and go inside and connect.
I have a couple people on my palpad.
It brings me to a blue screen with invite and disconnect.
So what do I do?
How do I get to the Trade center or what ever?

Click Invite and then click Trade.

Ive tried a few times to connect to wifi through my ds to play on my Pokemon Diamond but I always get a message saying no access point in range when im standing right next to my router, can anyone help me out ?

Your router isn't Nintendo WFC compatible. Either that or you connected to someone else's router.

Is it true that you can get banned from wifi? if so how?
please answer!:biggrin:

If Nintendo finds out that you have hacked Pokemon.

In the past it used to say something about my netgear security not allowing me to use wifi and I need to change the settings now its just stopped all together and I could swear my netgear (DG834G) is compatible

Okay, the access point comes up, but it says it's security is not approved by Nintendo, and I need to change it to WEP Security.

How do I do that?
And once I do that, can I set up WiFi?

No answers whatsoever? Come on..

ZOMG! Its cool kid! XD
You have no idea who I am right?

Lol, anyway,

I'm getting a new router tomorow!
Very exited!!

I'm just wondering if the cloning cheat is true when you go into wi-fi,

And that when you put pokemon up for trade, can you select a wishlist of what you want?

you can clone via the GTS (I'm not good at it so don't ask me how^^;;) but it is possible.

and that's kind of the idea. You put a pokemon up for trade, and you pick one pokemon you've seen before that you want. then if somebody has that and wants to trade they can^^

exactly, but if you get someone to trade you one, then trade it back, you could^^;

I was sad when I found out you couldn't do it that way too >.>

K, here's the deal. I got back from vacation and my internet was mysteriously down. My dad called sympatico and they walked him through setting up a new connection. Sympatico2 connection is now unused and it's now Sympatico7. I tried going on wifi like 7 times and it will not connect, is it because of the new internet connection? Do I have to reinstall my Wifi connection program.

Please help, I know nothing of computers and I just want wifi back, thanks.

Needs to be an Electabuzz first. Yes, it will. But they probably won't trade it back. Find a Lonely Elekid first.

if you can get on the internet, just check the error code on the nintendo wifi site. the problem may be that you need to disable a firewall

Okay, I'll repeat it in a more simple way.

Whenever I try to use Search for an Access Point, it says that my Access Point's Security Setting's are not compatible with Nintendo. I checked a manual, and it says WiFi is compatible with any security other than WEP. (The WEP is that long code you use for your Connection, the one with a bunch of random letters)

Therefore, my access point's Security is not WEP.
How do I change this?

Reconnect to your Wi-Fi connection with the Nintendo WFC settings.

Oh, so you're saying your access point is does not have a WEP Key? You need to set one, but IDK how. Ask the company you got it from or something like that, I'm young so I don't know that much lol.

Err..I have a WEP Key, it's that long gibber-ish code.
It' just it says my security setting's are't compatible with Nintendo. I checked the manual, and it says the security must be changed to WEP. How do I do that, is my question.

Oh yeah, there's a gray lock thing. Changing it to WEP would make it a red lock.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to do that, lol...

A little hint a good place to find WiFi connections is at laptop spaces in libraries. I've seen them on ferry boats too.
But I'm lucky, I have it in my room!

i bought a nintendo wifi usb connector, i installed all the software, and then it wouldnt connect to my DS, then after a few tries it connected, then i tried again another time and it wouldnt connect.

if anyone else is havin a problem with thiers just have the two devices (DS and USB connector) parallel

Does anyone know how to change the acess point's security to WEP/WPA?

Would Reinstalling it turn it to WEP?
