Connecting to a wireless network using WEP encryption
  1. Click one of the available connections. It will have "None" in the field beside the name of the connection.
  2. Click Search for an Access Point.
  3. Select your access point.
    •  If there is a gold lock that is unlocked,
      • Tap the name of your access point and then tap OK.
    • If there is a gold lock that is locked,
      • Tap the name of the access point and enter the WEP encryption key for your network in the WEP field.
      • If you're using WPA or WPA2 encryption on your network, tap Change Security Settings and enter your WPA or WPA2 encryption key.
      • Tap OK to save your settings.

      NOTE: To make sure we do all we can to protect your information, our wireless routers have security settings that are available to help protect your home wireless network. Using the strongest network security available will go a long way to secure your home network and information against unauthorized access. Verizon strongly recommends that you upgrade to WPA2 encryption, which is available with your current router and provides the highest level of network security available today, and that you create a strong, unique encryption key/password.

      While we recommend that you upgrade to WPA2, if you prefer to use less-secure WEP encryption, it is critical that you create a strong, unique WEP encryption key / password and change it regularly. Please do NOT use the WEP encryption key that is printed on the label of your router. Instructions may be found here.

    • If there is a gray lock that is locked, your router's network security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DSi. You will need to switch to WEP encryption or remove the security setting when connecting with the Nintendo DSi.
      • Turn your Nintendo DSi off and then back on.
      • Click the wrench icon.
      • Scroll to page 3 and select Internet.
      • Click Connection Settings.
      • Select Advanced Setup.
      • Click one of the available connections. It will have "None" in the field beside it.
      • Click Search for an Access Point.
      • Select your access point. The lock should now be gold.
      • If your network is using WEP encryption, enter the WEP encryption key in the WEP field.
      • If your network is using WPA encryption, click Change Security Settings and enter your WPA encryption key.
      • Click OK to save our settings.
    • If no access point is displayed, you must move closer to the router.
