Nintendo Wifi Connection help

Recommended Posts

So here it goes

On my Nintendo 3ds I can connect to the Internet via wifi. On my pokemon white game, I connect to wifi on my 3ds. However, when I try to connect to any other ds game, I get this error- error code: 52001

Does anyone know why this happens, and how I can change it?

You're probably using Wi-Fi secured with WPA (which is pretty secure). Only newer games that are DSi aware can use that kind of connection. Older games can only use unsecured or WEP Wi-Fi (WEP is very insecure, and can easily be broken in 20 steps, according to a quick and easy web search). So it's either use unsecure Wi-Fi or settle with no Wi-Fi for older games.

I'm having trouble with mine too. It says that my wifi doesn't support my ds. Does this mean I have to get a new ds. Because I really don't wanna do that or get a new wifi router thing

You'll have to reconfigure your router to use WEP, which is not recommended because it's terribly insecure.

Getting a new DS won't help since only DSi aware games support WPA even if the game is in a DSi or 3DS.
