Could anyone help please.
My son is trying to connect his Nintendo DSi to our Sky Broadband. He can connect to the Internet but when he plays his Pokermon game he cannot connect to the online gaming functions. He gets a message saying the access point security settings are not supported by nintendo ds. This is the same for all his other games.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Superhoop0808, if you need to change your router to WEP the following instructions should help.
Please note however that changing your security to WEP will automatically stop all other wireless devices you have connected to the router from working until you reconnect these devices again using the new WEP key that you set using the process below.
Once you have followed the above steps, reconnect your wireless devices and when prompted enter the WEP Key you noted down from the Key 1 box on the router to connect.
Some devices such as Laptops may require you to remove the previous wireless connection profile before they will allow you to connect again. If you experience problems connecting your laptop or PC after following this process, please reply below with the version of Windows or Mac OS X you are using and I'll post the instructions on how to clear this.

Having just looked at my son's DSi, I suspect that you need to ignore the three "standard" wireless config setups slots in the menu as these only permit either an unencrypted or a WEP connection.
Instead, make sure these are clear of any config and click on the "Advanced Setup" option. Click on one of the advanced connections (4, 5 or 6) and click on "search for an access point". When I do this it finds my WPA2 encypted network and allows me to put in my wireless key. Job done.
The DSi worked with my previous router when I was with Plusnet, and now works with the (mandatory pile of crepe D-Link) Sky router I have had since moving to them for broadband and telephone on 20th Dec.
