      do you have the router set to WEP?

      also, have you tried setting the local ip manually?

      "unable to connect to an access point"

      I've just come across this issue too and hopefully I can help you out...

      Once you have set your router to WEP security you will need to setup the pass phrase shown lower down the page. Now then, the DS won't accept a word pass phrase such as someones name it will only accept HEX or Hexidecimal (characters: 0-9 / A-F)

      So all you need to do is:
      1. Set the pass phrase to 128 bit
      2. Create a 16 character long pass-phrase using HEX i.e C023DE5978EAGB35, you can get the router page to automatically generate this for you.
      3. Save these settings.

      Write down this 16 character pass-phrase, you will need to enter this in your DS. Now go ahead and setup your DS connection again, this time using the new pass-phrase you just created...

      Let me know how you get on...

      Have you checked the below?

      Enable Wireless Access Point
      Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID)

      And ensure the encryption strength is 128 bit, and that Key 1 or which ever you wish to use has a radio button selected, also ensure you clikc apply

      Also I didn't need to put my ip address settings to get this to work, so maybe try it again without?

      Did you clear the old connection settings off your ds and start a fresh?
