CAUTION: The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection uses data that is saved
in BOTH the game and your DS system. If you use the game in a
different DS and save over the original data, you will lose
important data including your active friend roster.
IMPORTANT: Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection gameplay uses more
battery power than other gameplay. You may prefer to use the AC
Adapter to prevent running out of power when using the
Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
Gameplay At Home Using A Wireless Router
To play Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (Nintendo WFC) compatible games
on your Nintendo DS at home over the internet, you must have a
wireless access point, like a wireless router, and an active broadband
internet connection, like DSL or a cable modem.
STEP 5 On the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Setup
screen, tap the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings
panel.
Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection
Settings panel
STEP 1 Insert your Nintendo WFC compatible game into your Nintendo
DS and turn on the power.
STEP 2 On the Nintendo DS Menu Screen, select the game title in the
DS Game Selection panel.
STEP 6 Tap the Connection 1 panel. You can save
up to three different connection settings if you have
access to more than one wireless connection.
STEP 3 From the game menu options, select the choice for Nintendo
WFC game play modes. The name and menu location of this choice
may vary from game to game. Review the instruction booklet for the
game you are playing for specific information.
STEP 4 From the Nintendo WFC menu, select the choice for Nintendo
WFC Settings or Setup.
STEP 4 will take you to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Setup Utility.
The Setup Utility program will configure your Nintendo DS to connect to
your wireless access point. You will use this utility the first time you set up
your DS to play games over the internet. You will also use it if you want
to change or add an internet connection, or to erase or transfer your
setup information to another Nintendo DS.
Connection 1 panel
NOTE: Before going to STEP 7, check your wireless access point for a button
labeled with AOSS™. If you have a wireless router with the AOSS (AirStation
One-Touch Secure System) feature, this feature can be used to connect your
Nintendo system to Nintendo WFC. (Most routers do not have the AOSS
feature.) AOSS capable routers will have a button on the router identified with
the letters "AOSS". Select this choice from the Settings screen if you have this
feature on your router.
STEP 7 Tap the Search for an Access Point panel.
STEP 8 The Nintendo DS will search for your wireless access point. If
there is more than one access point within range, it will be listed also. If
your access point is not listed, see Troubleshooting section.
After the name of the access point, there will be a "lock icon". See below
for a description of these lock icons:
A blue unlocked icon means you can select that connection and
test it without any additional steps.
A red locked icon means you can select that connection but will
have to enter a WEP Key. (See Troubleshooting, for assistance on
finding WEP Keys.)
A gray locked icon means that this connection is using a different
security setting that doesn't work with the Nintendo DS. (See
Troubleshooting, for assistance on security settings.)
STEP 9Select your access point from the list. (If you need to enter a
WEP Key, you will be prompted for it.) The settings for that connection will
be saved. Tap "OK" to test the connection.
If the connection tests OK, you will be given a "Connection successful"
message.
You are now ready to play games over the internet. Return to the
Nintendo WFC menu in the game and select the option for playing
games over the internet. If the test is unsuccessful, you will be given an
error code and instructions to help resolve setup problems (also, see
Troubleshooting).

STEP 1 Insert your Nintendo WFC compatible game into your Nintendo DS and turn on the power.
STEP 2 On the Nintendo DS Menu Screen, select the game title in the DS Game Selection panel.
STEP 3 From the game menu options, select the choice for Nintendo WFC game play modes. The name of
this choice may vary from game to game.
STEP 4 From the Nintendo WFC menu, select the choice to connect to the Nintendo WFC service. The name of
this choice may vary from game to game.

Manual Setup of Your Wireless Router
Manual Setup
If you own a wireless router and the above steps did not get you connected, you may need to manually edit the Nintendo
WFC connection settings of your system, or adjust some of the settings of your wireless network. Manual setup is
recommended for users with experience in setting up and configuring wireless access points and internet connection
settings.
For complete assistance with these other methods of connecting to Nintendo WFC, please visit:

Nintendo WFC Settings Options
The Options screen allows you to access your Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ID
number and the unique MAC address for your Nintendo DS.
STEP 5 On the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Setup screen,
tap the Options panel.
The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ID is a unique identification number assigned
to each user when you first connect to the Nintendo WFC.
This ID number is required to play games on the Nintendo WFC.
All of your Nintendo WFC data is associated with your ID number, including
your wireless connection settings and your friend roster information for all
Nintendo WFC compatible games that you have played. This information is
stored in the internal memory of your Nintendo DS. This connection ID system
protects others from using any of your connection settings or friend roster
information.
To go to Options, follow the Gameplay At Home Using A Wireless
Router procedure STEP 1 through STEP 4, then follow the instructions
on the next page.
CAUTION: The Nintendo WFC uses data that is saved in both the game
and your Nintendo DS system. If you use the game in a different DS
and save over the original data, you will lose important data including
your active friend roster.
Options panel
STEP 6
On the Options screen, there are three choices:
1. System Information
2. Erase Nintendo WFC Configuration
3. Transfer Nintendo WFC Configuration
NOTE: Some of these options are not available until you
have made a connection to the Nintendo WFC.
1. System Information
The MAC Address is a unique identification number assigned to a networking
device. Each Nintendo DS has its own MAC Address.
The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ID is an identification number assigned to each
user when you first connect to the Nintendo WFC.
IMPORTANT: Please record your MAC Address and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection
ID on the back cover of this manual for future reference.
Troubleshooting
Many connection problems will display an error code which can provide you
with information about the issue you are experiencing. More information
about an error code can be found by using the Error Code Lookup tool at
support.nintendo.com.
If you feel your online connection is configured correctly but you are still
unable to make a connection, the authentication server may be busy or
unavailable. Try connecting again later before calling for service.
Many connection problems can be resolved by performing one or two simple
troubleshooting steps. Some troubleshooting tips that have shown to be
successful in resolving connection problems include the following:
• Check the signal strength and move closer to the access point, if possible,
or re-orient yourself so there is nothing between you and the access point.
• Make sure you have the latest Firmware Update for your router. Check
with the router manufacturer or the Internet service provider that supplied
the router.
• You may have to adjust the transmission rate of your router. Some routers
have settings like “Turbo Boost” or “G-Nitro.” These may have to be
turned off.
• Minimize any wireless interference in the area. Some things that can cause
interference include cordless devices and wireless electronics.
• Change your router’s channel setting to 1 or 11.
• If your wireless router has MAC Filtering turned on, you will need to enter
the MAC address of your Nintendo DS to your router’s list of accepted
devices.

User Conduct
It is important that you do your part to keep the Service a friendly and clean environment. In particular, you may not use the Service to:
• Upload, transmit, or otherwise make available any content that is unlawful, harmful, harassing, or otherwise objectionable;
• harm minors in any way;

2. Erase Nintendo WFC Configuration
This option allows you to erase your Nintendo WFC ID number, connection
settings, and friend roster information.
CAUTION: If you erase your Nintendo WFC Configuration, all wireless
connection settings and all friend roster information for ALL games will
be permanently lost.
This option should be used if you will no longer be using your Nintendo DS
and want to erase the information so others are unable to use it.
3. Transfer Nintendo WFC Configuration
This option allows you transfer your system information to another Nintendo
DS. This will permanently delete it from your current DS. This option is
useful if you want to use your wireless connection settings and friend roster on
another DS system.
• Select DS Download Play from the Nintendo DS Menu Screen on the
system you want to send the system information to.
• Select the Transfer Nintendo WFC Configuration panel from the options
screen on the DS system you are sending the information from.
Follow the on-screen instructions after you have set the receiving Nintendo DS
system on DS Download Play.
Important Privacy Information
• If your Service Set Identifier (SSID) does not appear when you search for an
access point, your access point may not be broadcasting its SSID. Check your
router settings on your computer and either set your router to broadcast SSID,
or enter the name of your SSID in the manual settings of your Nintendo DS.
Enter WEP Key / WEP Key incorrect (Access Point lock icon is red).
• You will need to check your router settings through your computer to get your
WEP Key. Many routers offer multiple WEP Key entry areas (usually numbered 1
through 4). The Nintendo DS is only compatible with the WEP Key entered in
the first (#1) area. Make sure you are entering the actual WEP Key and not a
Pass Phrase. If the WEP Key in your router settings is hidden (i.e. *****), then
you may need to manually enter a WEP key. Use a 10 digit number that is
easy for you to remember.
Security Setting is incompatible or not valid (Access point lock icon is gray).
• WEP is the only security that the Nintendo DS is compatible with. You will need
to change the security on your router to WEP.
To protect your privacy, do not give out personal information such
as last name, phone number, birth date, age, school, e-mail, or
home address when communicating with others.
Your Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ID is tied to your friend roster
and stored on your Nintendo DS system. Be sure to properly
safeguard your Nintendo DS system and delete your user
information from the Nintendo WFC setup if you will no longer
be using your system or game to prevent a subsequent user from
having access to your friend roster.
If you decide to provide personal information to any third party
(such as a game publisher) it is subject to the privacy policy of
that company, not Nintendo's privacy practices. Be cautious
before providing any personal information to any third party.
NOTE: Service may be terminated at some point in the future. For
details on server status, visit support.nintendo.com.
