I have a working Internet Connection. I can connect to the Internet using my DSi XL. I can also connect via Wi-Fi using my Pokemon White game. Meaning that I can trade and battle via Wi-Fi. I can also connect to the official GTS and was even able to get the Liberty Pass Mystery Gift.
Pretty much: My Wi-Fi works.
However, whether or not my Wi-Fi works is not the problem. The problem is that I found out that Pokemon B/W's GTS had been cracked. And, naturally, I wanted to participate in the distributions. As well as send the Gen 5 .pkm files that I have to my game. And that I can't.
As soon as I tap NINTENDO WFC SETTINGS, I get this message:
“Please configure your connection settings under the Internet option in the system settings
for help, visit support.nintendo.com”
It doesn't give me the option to change anything. It just appears right after I tap NINTENDO WFC SETTINGS. Please note that my game's Wi-Fi works when I never went in to change those settings.
Naturally, I contacted Nintendo. This is what they said:
"You do not need to set up your connection through the game menus if you already have a connection set up through the Nintendo DSi system settings. It is normal that you are receiving this message, so there is nothing wrong with your connection."
So, apparently Nintendo wanted to make sure that these settings would not be tampered with and decided to make them editable.
I thought... maybe if I get rid of my DSi's Wi-Fi connection the NINTENDO WFC SETTINGS will become available. I was wrong. The same message keeps popping up.
The thing is... if Nintendo says that this is normal, then it is safe to conclude that everyone owning Pokemon White/Black will get this message upon trying to access NINTENDO WFC SETTING. But, I keep seeing threads that are distributing Gen 5 Pokemon via Pokemon B/W's GTS. Which means that people have found a way to edit their NINTENDO WFC SETTINGS. The question is: How?
Try changing it with the DSi System settings.
Yeah, if you are a DSi user like me, you have to change the WiFi settings from the home screen (which you can easily visit by quickly tapping the power button).
Emulated versions of the game can edit the settings.
Yayy so WPA2 works on my DSi so it should work in game too?
Battle me If you D A R E
Do you have NETGEAR for the internet on your DSi? If you do, have you put in the WEP in Internet under System Settings? That might help.
If that doesn't work then go through this little check list that I'll do at my friends house when trying to connect on his WPA2 router:
1. Did I not screw around with my DNS settings (e.g; using the PokeGTS distributor) and forgot to switch it to tell it to auto-obtain.
2. Make sure that you remember your exact log-in to that WPA2 router. If you sometimes mistype a letter or accidentally capitalize a letter when it shouldn't during the set-up stage then that will also screw you over.
3. Last but not least. If you know you've logged into the router correctly and its still not connecting then physically go over to your router and do what we in the business like to call a "Power Cycle." Is what this does is that it'll go and reset the data to everything that has been connected to it and then start them fresh. How to do it you ask? Easy:
3.a: Unplug the power cord from the back of the router. Then unplug the ethernet cable from the router(if your using a modem too then unplug that cable from it too).
3.b: Wait for about a good 30seconds to a minute(yes I know this might seem like a long time to have to wait to be able to play Pokemon but hopefully it works).
3.c: Then plug everything back in, but in this order: router power then wait until all lights are are solid except for the modem's, next both of the eternet cables but make sure that you plug them back in exactly where you unplugged them from.
If your still having trouble connecting then don't hesitate to PM me at any time.
Now to the main question at hand:
here. After you do that the change the one under it still under the DNS section. It should say something like "SubNet Gateway" or something like that. Make sure that they both match up. Then save the the settings or run a connection test. It should pass without any problems at all. If it does have a problem then make sure that the numbers are exactly the same as on the website. You can even edit a Pokemon to your liking and then press submit and go into the GTS, but make sure that your party is full and make sure that you leave the first spot in your box open. Then go in to the GTS and through the whole process of entering it. When you get in there you'll automatically stay walk up to the Trade Machine. It will start the whole process of connecting to the GTS server. It make be an instant find or it make to a while depending on how strong your signal is. Then as soon as you get connected your Pokemon should arrive. Then be sent straight to the first slot in your first box! Enjoy! Oh, the one thing I forgot to mention is that you must keep the pokeGTS page that you use to edit your pokemon on or it will disconnect automatically. I hope this helps and have fun catching all 150 pokemon in a matter of minutes-hour! I hope this helps you and anyone else who has trouble with the GTS. If you need help or have anymore questions make sure to leave me a question on here or in my PM box!
I am having the same problem with not loging into the nintendo WFC connection, however, I use a regular ds. How do I change the Internet settings?
