Nintendo Wifi with dial-up Tutorial

This tutorial is to help you get connected to Nintendo Wifi with a dial-up connection. Even though lots of people think that wifi with dial-up would lag and cause the people with high speed internet to go slow, but that is not true. At normal dial-up speed (56kb) it will go just about as fast as high speed internet; the only thing that will happen if you have a really slow dial-up connection or if you're downloading on the internet at the same time you will just see the other characters of the other people you are connected to go slow or bounce and the other people will just see your character go slow or bounce on their screen.

Nintendo wifi with dial-up FAQ

If you have a Mac this web site might help you out with the Internet Connection Sharing part, and this post on the Nintendo Forums called Conecting using Apple Share can help you get the IP Address that you need to enter into the DS.

You can use any wireless router you want just as long as it's compatible with the Nintendo DS.

Things you need:
1 computer that has access to the internet
1 wireless router or Nintendo wifi USB connector
1 Nintendo DS
1 Wifi compatible game

Part 1 installing and/or enabling Internet Connection Sharing:

1. Go to a computer that has access to the internet

A computer with Windows 2000/Xp:

dial-up connection properties

2. Click Start, then Control Panel, then click Network Connections
3. Right click your dial-up connection, then click Properties and then click the Advanced tab
4. Click the Allow other users to connect through this computer's Internet connection checkbox
5. Now connect to your dial-up connection

If you have connected to your dial-up connection before you enabled Internet Connection Sharing you have to disconnect and then reconnect again.








A Computer with Windows 95/98/98 SE/ME:

In windows 95,98,98 SE and Me you first have to install Internet connection Sharing. Add/Remove Programs

2. Click Start, then Settings, then Control Panel, then click the Add/Remove Programs icon, then Click the Windows Setup tab and then click Communications

Step 2 Finding out the ip and other connection settings for the Nintendo DS:

1. Click Start, then Programs, then Accessories, then Command Prompt (MS-DOS Prompt in Windows 95,98,98se and me)
2. Type ipconfig and then keep the command prompt window on
3. If you are already connected to the internet through dial-up the ip address settings for the dial-up will show up, but you do not need this information so you can just ignore it.
4. Now keep the command prompt on the computer screen while you go to your Nintendo DS to enter the information, Remember to enter the Network adapter information and not the dial-up information, if you do enter the dial-up information it will not work

If you're using a Mac Open and type ifconfig en1, more info about using Apple Share with Nintendo Wifi Connection at Conecting using Apple Share posted on the Nintendo Forums.
