      Nintendo DS / Sagem connection difficulties

      Hi All,

      I know there a half-a-dozen threads similar to this, but none seem helpful.

      I have a Sagem F@st 2504 router (how lovely and new it looks), and when connecting to the DS's Wi-Fi via an Auto-Search method, the rather unhelpful message "The access point's security setting are not supported by the Nintendo DS."

      After thoroughly checking for troubleshooting, all I turned up with was basically, that it couldn't be done unless changing my router settings to WEP, or disabling the security altogether. I have tried, and failed to do the former, and am obviously reluctant to try the latter!

      I have heard about using a previous router, but this is the first Sky router in this house. I believe the las tone was a BT one (not my choice, by the way!)

      Has anyone managed to resolve this annoying problem?

      As you have discovered the DS does not support WPA, only WEP. Using the automatic method is easiest, just select WEP under Security and type a word or phrase into the passphrase box and click Generate. If you leave the encryption at 64 bit you will be given a choice of 4 Keys. Select the one you want to use by selecting it's radio button and make a note of it. Use this Key when connecting the DS or any other PC or device.
