Alright so here's the deal.
My friend just bought me a DS Lite so we could play pokemon together.
Problem is, we can't because my DS Lite wont connect to my internet.
Now I kinda know why, but I was wondering if anyone knows a way around it or if it's just completely doomed.
We have a Linksys E3000 Cisco router.
We have the locked internet and then we have the guest internet which in order to connect to, you have to open up your browser and type in a password which you cannot do on a DS Lite.
When I try to connect to the guest internet anyway it gives me Error Code: 10200.
The locked internet password is not a WEP key.
Which is what a DS Lite requires.
If there is no way around this, then I will end up selling this DS Lite and buying a 3DS, but before I do that I want to know if the 3DS will be able to connect to my internet at least.
I just turned the WPA2 to a WEP and it works just fine now.
Thanks to everyone who read and tried to help me out, I appreciate it.
Unless you change the encryption to WEP on your router or remove it, you cannot connect to the internet on your DS Lite. I will assume you have WPA encryption.
If you get a 3DS, you can use your connection for web browsing, eShop, and 3DS games ONLY. If you put a DS game into the 3DS, you would still need to change your router security settings.
Certain DSi-enhanced titles do support 3DS/DSi connections to WPA networks.
I think that you can also try using some spare USB Wi-Fi adapters to create a separate WEP access point that you could use to connect to, although it may not work. If you have the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, you can try setting that up on your PC to connect to as well.
