    Hey, I don't suppose any of you guys could help me out on this one, I don't think you can but it's worth a try I guess...

    I want to get my DS online, but it says I need to put in the WEP key.
    I typed 192.168.0.1 into my browser, and it said I need a username and password to access the page.

    I set the whole thing up, and not one time did it tell me to create a username or password.
    any ideas what it could be? I'm in the UK and using the skybroadband router, if that helps. I checked the side of the router, it has my SSID, network key and channel thing on it, but no WEP key.

    Anyone have any ideas at all how I can get it?



    EDIT.
    Ok, I tried something else, and it kinda worked, but now it's saying that the access points security settings arnt supported by the nintendo DS?

    What the hell?
    is there no way I change them? I have the laptop plugged into the router, as it's a really old laptop that doens't have wifi, but when I got the router, all I had to do was plug it in and it pretty much connected to the net right out of the box?

    I picked up the official Nintendo Wi-Fi. It is really easy to set up.

    OK a WEP key is a random code that is entered into your Wireless Router for Security....granted, WEP is reallly really really weak...can be cracked in seconds, but I dont think you are looking at this from a security perspective..
