Re: Just will not connect - wifi on DS Netgear DG834G

If it is a compatibility issue I would expect to find many cases in a simple Google search 'DS wireless DG834G' I found nothing that related to the problem of not seeing the SSID.

'I don’t think you need to worry about IP addresses yet, until your DS is able to see it' - If I am manually setting up DS I have to put in an IP address - now I used different ones for the other items starting from 01 - 200+. So, should I put in 1 or ?

IP addressing doesn’t come into effect until your DS has connected to the network, at the moment it can’t even see the network. If it ever does manage to see the network and connect then I expect you would see error messages on the DS relating to IP addresses. Sorting out the IPs should be easy if we ever get that far.

Well, well, well..... I've done it! Went to Router page, maintenance and download the latest FIRMWARE - hey presto - we're up and running! Found that info on a site somewhere which I can't find again now - but thanks to whoever it was for the link and thank you to everyone who has helped on this forum. Not so SM ! 🙂

OH NO, you didn’t update the firmware did you? But …….. just kidding. Glad you’re sorted. 😄

Still, pretty strange that only the DS could not see the SSID? :confused:

Re: Just will not connect - wifi on DS Netgear DG834G

I am having issues being able to connect my DS to a Netgear router as well. I see the ssid for the router, it shows that the connection is locked, and even when I put in the right password and it still wont let me connect, it gives me a "These settings are invalid" error.

this 2years old thread.

DS usually only support WEP or WPA depending DSL model.. check nintendo site for which encryption supports.
