Belkin (info for Nintendo DS systems)
Router models included here:
- F5D7230-4 v3000
- F5D7234-4 v1
- F5D8230-4 v2000
Question: Ok, I got a new router a couple weeks ago and it works just fine for my laptop. But I can't go on Wi-Fi with my DS. I keep getting error code 52200
Resolution: Disable “Protected mode” on the router. You may need to turn off the firewall as well(if it has one). If it still does not work, I would try a manual connection.
Question: I keep getting 52000 whenever I try to connect my DS to the Wi-Fi. I couldn’t find any firewall to turn off. I’m sure I had it working before but now it doesn’t.
Resolution: The router has something called “Frameburst” you will need to disable. Also you will need to setup a manual connection on the DS.
Question: My Nintendo DSi was able to find this router through connection slots 1-3 when searching for an access point but I get error code 052100-2
Resolution: Set up manual connection, I had to use a different DNS server as primary and the default gateway as the secondary DNS, but this may be different for you. Connection test successful, update was successful.
Question: I used it for a few months to play The Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass, Mario Kart Wii, and my other Wi-Fi compatible games for the Wii and the DS. Recently I found out how to access my routers security settings and I secured it. I input all the necessary information into my DS and my Wii (and yes I used WEP). When I test connection I get a successful test message but when I try to play games online the connection always fails on both systems. However, I am able to use the internet channel, and all other internet reliant channels on the Wii. I've tried restoring my router to factory default settings (settings that originally worked for both systems) and even completely disabling firewall settings on my router and computer. I've also tried power cycling the router and changing the channel to 1, and 11. Any suggestions?
Resolution: I managed to fix the problem. I reset both my modem and my router and set them up again and now it works fine. I realized afterwards that it was the connection type listed under my routers settings. I have a PPoE connection but if I set my router to these settings neither the Wii nor the DS can connect for online games. Instead I simply set my connection type to Dynamic in my routers settings and it works fine now.
Question: My DSI connects to my wireless router and I use the web browser without a problem but every time I try and use the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection to play a game, it always gives me an error message saying that there is no compatible access point in the range.
Resolution: (specific to error message, no compatible access points in range): The reason you are getting this error message is because your wireless router is in an encryption other than WEP encryption. I recommend changing your encryption to WEP from WPA. DS games do not work with WPA security.
Question: My DS won’t connect and neither will my sister’s DS Lite. The error code is 52000. We aren’t using any security if that matters, I saw how some of the errors are caused by that.
Resolution: In the router page that has the Channel and SSID of the router, you will find something called ACK mode. Turn this off. If there is something there called “protected mode,” turn that of as well. Once those are disabled it should connect.
