Error Codes: 61020-61070

"Error messages within this range are typically caused by temporary network outages with the Nintendo WiFi Connection. If there is a problem with the network, Nintendo's technicians will do their best to get the service back up as soon as possible.[/blockquote]

If you are connecting to the Nintendo WiFi Connection for the first time, or the problem has not resolved itself after a few hours, there could be an incompatibility with your wireless home network. You may want to try the following:

Ensure your router has the latest firmware installed. Visit your router manufacturer’s website and look for any updated firmware that may be available (these are typically found under “downloads” or by searching for your particular model number). Contact your router manufacturer for additional assistance.

If your router or modem has a built-in firewall, you may want to try and lower the security settings, as they could be interfering with a successful connection. How to do this will vary brand and model, so consult the manual or the manufacturer of your router or modem for assistance.

If after trying the above steps you are still unable to successfully login or connect to the Nintendo WiFi Connection, it is possible that your wireless home network is not compatible with the Nintendo DS or the Nintendo WiFi Connection. Nintendo suggests purchasing a compatible router, (click here for a list of routers Nintendo tested and ranked), or the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector. (Please note that if your modem is blocking the connection, the USB Connector will not work).

Error Code: 80430

"This error generally occurs when two or more Nintendo DS systems are unable to establish a direct connection, usually due to high wireless traffic or firewall settings on your router or your friend's router."


"I've never been able to connect. I get this code every single time I try to connect."
Netgear Routers
Sometimes older Netgear routers have difficulty in establishing the type of player to player connections (i.e., a direct connection) the Nintendo DS requires for online play.

Firewall Info
Your router's firewall may be blocking some necessary ports. You may consider adjusting your router's Port Forwarding settings. Each router is unique, so consult the owner's manual for your router or contact the manufacturer for specific information on working with your router's ports. For your information:

You will need to manually assign a new IP address to your Nintendo DS.
If your router prompts for a device or profile name, you can enter anything you like (such as Nintendo DS, etc.).
The starting port to open is 1, the ending port to open is 65535 (or as high as your router will allow).
Protocols will need to be set to UDP only.
Set the IP address for the ports to forward to the same as the DS's static IP.

Noisy/Busy Area
Ensure that your router is set to either channel 1,6, or 11.

"I get this error code every once and awhile. Some days are better than others."


Noisy/Busy Area
Ensure that your router is set to either channel 1,6, or 11.

Something in your setup
Turn off other wireless devices while playing, such as cordless phones, other handheld game systems, or wireless computers.

Friend's Settings
If you recieve this error only when playing with a particular friend, then it is likely a problem with the friend's firewall settings on their connection. If possible, recommend to your friend that they visit the technical support area of www.nintendowifi.com for possible solutions.

[blockquote]Until recently, I've been able to connect to the Nintendo WiFi Connection just fine. Now I'm getting this error code."
Something has changed in your area
This could be a neighbor with a new wireless network, or you may have added something to your setup.

Noisy/Busy Area
Ensure that your router is set to either channel 1,6, or 11.

SSID set to default
If the router's SSID is set to the factory default (i.e. the manufacturer's name or "default"), change it to something unique. For example, your favorite video game.

Something in your setup
Turn off other wireless devices while playing, such as cordless phones, other handheld game systems, or wireless computers.

Error Code: 86420

"This particular error is typically caused by a firewall interfering with a successful connection to the Nintendo WiFi Connection. Please read the following information."


Do you receive this error every time you try and connect?
If you receive this error only when playing a particular friend, then it is likely a problem with your friend's firewall settings on their connection. If possible, ask your friend to visit the technical support area of www.nintendowifi.com for possible solutions.

Ensure your router has the latest firmware installed
Visit your router manufacturer’s website and look for any updated firmware that may be available (these are typically found under "downloads" or by searching for your particular model number). Contact your router manufacturer for additional assistance.

Another device may be sharing the same IP address of the DS.
Try manually assigning an IP address to your Nintendo DS.
First, assign a static IP address to your Nintendo DS. To do this:
Click the "Start" button in the lower left-hand corner of your computer.
Click "Run".
Type "cmd" in the box and press Enter.
Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press Enter.
The IP address of the PC will be displayed. The IP address you are going to assign to your Nintendo DS must be 10 digits higher than the PC's. (e.g., 192.168.1.100 becomes 192.168.1.110).

You will now need to manually assign this new IP address to your Nintendo DS.
For step-by-step instructions on how to do this, click here.

If the above information does not solve your problem:
You may consider adjusting your router's Port Forwarding settings. Each router is unique, so consult the owner's manual for your router or contact the manufacturer for specific information on working with your router's ports. For your information:

If you are prompted for a device or profile name, you can enter anything you like. (Such as Nintendo DS, etc.). The starting port to open is 1, the ending port to open is 65535. (Or as high as the router will allow). Protocols will need to be set to UPD only. Set the IP address for the ports to forward to the same as the DS's static IP that you assigned in the previous step.

Error Codes: 52000-52002

"These error messages are typically caused by a basic setting in your router, such as transmission rate. Please carefully read the instructions below:"


Check Nintendo's router information for special notes, if available, for your router.
Click here to go to Nintendo's Wireless Router Configuration page. Use the drop-down box on the left to select, if available, your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing the settings found in the Special Notes. Follow the instructions and test the connection.

If the router is not listed on Nintendo's pages, or has no suggested basic rate and transmission rate changes, login to the router, and check likely areas for the basic rate and transmission rate. (e.g., "Wireless Settings", "Advanced Wireless Settings", "Connection Rates"). Change the basic rate to "1-2". Change the transmission rate to "2". (Make the change even if only one of those options is available). Test the connection.

Another device may be sharing the same IP address of the DS.
Try manually assigning an IP address to your Nintendo DS. The first thing you'll need to do is find out what IP address range you should be using. To do this:
Click the "Start" button in the lower left-hand corner of your computer.
Click "Run".
Type "cmd" into the box and press Enter.
Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press Enter. The IP address of the PC will be displayed.
The IP address you are going to assign to the Nintendo DS must be 10 digits higher than the PC's. (e.g., 192.168.1.100 becomes 192.168.1.110).
Enter in the exact same values for your Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Secondary DNS.

You will now need to manually assign this new IP address to your Nintendo DS. For step-by-step instructions on how to do this, click here.

Connecting from a non-partnered Hotspot:
The access point at the Hotspot may not be experiencing problems. Ask the staff on site if their WiFi network is up and running. If the Hotspot's access point has a built-in firewall or other security that interferes with the necessary transmissions from the Nintendo DS, then the access point will not be compatible with the Nintendo DS.

Try another Hotspot

Error Codes: 51300-51398

"These error messages are typically caused by WEP Key issues. Please read the following information:"


Check Nintendo’s router information for special notes, (if available), for your router. Click here to go to Nintendo's Wireless Router Configuration page. Use the drop-down box on the left to select (if available), your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes".

Are you using WEP security on your router?
Log into the router using the default IP. (Consult your router's manual for assistance). If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of only alphanumeric characters. (A-F and 1-9). If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of only alphanumeric characters. (A-F and 1-9). The WEP Key must be in Hexadecimal. (1-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters). Verify they are using the WEP Key in the first (#1) slot. Even though their router may have multiple slots, the Nintendo DS is only compatible with the WEP Key in slot #1.

Check to see if your router is using MAC filtering
Log into the router using the default IP. Find the section for MAC Filtering. (Typically under "Security"). If MAC Filtering is on ("enabled"), enter the Nintendo DS’s MAC address into the list of approved MAC addresses. For info on locating the DS’s MAC address, click here. For assistance with locating the MAC Filtering section of your router’s setup tool, consult the router’s manual or contact the manufacturer.

Error Codes: 52200-52203

"The Access Point you are attempting to connect to is not connected to the internet, or a firewall is blocking traffic necessary for connecting to the Nintendo WiFi Connection. What to do will depend on where you are trying to connect from."
What to do:
If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:

Errors ending in 0 = Connection File 1
Errors ending in 1 = Connection File 2
Errors ending in 2 = Connection File 3
Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo WiFi USB Connector

Verify that your router is connected to the internet when attempting to connect to the Nintendo WiFi Connection. If you are not able to access the internet on your computer, then there is a problem with your internet connection. Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for more information. AOL broadband users may experience difficulties when attempting to connect to the Nintendo WiFi Connection. Contact AOL for assistance.

If this error occurs regularly, while you are playing at home, it is likely a connection problem related to your firewall settings. For more information on firewalls and the Nintendo WiFi Connection, click here.

If the above information does not work, and you are using the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector, click here for additional assistance.

If the above information does not work, and you are connecting at home with a wireless router, there could be settings on your router that need to be adjusted. Click here for more information.

Error Code: 52103

"The Nintendo WiFi USB Connector is unable to connect to the Nintendo WiFi Connection."

Are you using an anti-virus or firewall security program (such as Norton, Symantec, Zone Alarm, etc.)? If so, read the following.
Check for an option to "add" the registration tool to it's list of allowed applications. Test the connection after adding the registration tool.
Disable the personal firewall portion of the software. Test the connection.
Disable the entire security program, and test the connection.

Does your Internet Service Provider (ISP) require you to sign in each time you wish to connect to the internet?
Some popular ISPs require a login each time you wish to connect, instead of an "always on" connection. Because the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector does not have a login tool to work these types of connections, the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector may be incompatible with your home network. You may want to contact your ISP, or purchase a compatible router instead of using the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector. Click here for help finding a compatible router.

Most routers have built-in firewalls. Some firewall settings could interfere with the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector. Try logging into the router using it's default IP address (consult the router's manual for assistance) and lowering the security or disabling the firewall altogether.

If the above information does not work, it is possible that the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector is incompatible with your home network. You may want to consider purchasing a compatible router. Click here to view Nintendo's list of router rankings.

Error Code: 52003

"The Nintendo WiFi USB Connector is unable to connect to the Nintendo WiFi Connection:"


What to do:

Are you using any sort of anti-virus or firewall software on your computer? If so, it is likely the program is interfering with the Nintendo WiFi USB Connector. You may want to try and lower the security settings or even uninstall the program, as they could be interfering with a successful connection. How to do this will vary brand and model, so consult the manual or the manufacturer of your router or modem for assistance.

Here is a compiled list of some of the most common anti-virus and firewall software, with instructions for updating.

Norton AntiVirus 2005
Launch Norton AntiVirus and click "Options".
Look for "Internet Worm Protection".
Uncheck the box labeled "enabled".
Click "okay" and choose an amount of time to disable it.
Test the connection.

If this does not resolve the issue, continue troubleshooting.

Norton AntiVirus 2006
Launch Norton AntiVirus and click "Personal Firewall".
Click "configure", and click the "Programs" tab.
The "program rules" are located under "manual program control", at the bottom of the dialogue box.
Click "add" and locate the USB registration tool software and choose "open".
In the program control dialogue box click the down arrow under "What do you want to do?" and click "permit".
Click "okay" to close the configuration box, and click "okay" again to close the personal firewall.
Test the connection.

If this does not resolve the issue, continue troubleshooting.

McAfee Security Center
Go into "options", "configuration", or "preferences".
Check for an option labeled "Privacy Service" and disable it.
Test the connection.

If this does not resolve the issue, continue troubleshooting.

Zone Labs Zone Alarm
Go into "options", "configuration", or "preferences".
In "Zones", change the "Internet Zone" to "Medium".
In "Program Control", make sure "Nintendowfcreg.exe" is allowed in both columns.
Test the connection.
Completely disable Zone Alarm.
Test the connection.

If this does not resolve the issue, continue troubleshooting.

Zone Labs Zone Alarm Security Suite
This software is not compatible and needs to be uninstalled completely in order for the USB Connector to work. If you are not comfortable uninstalling this software, we recommend purchasing a wireless router instead. ( Click here for tips on locating a compatible router).

AdAware, Spybot Search and Destroy, Spy Sweeper, Sygate Firewall, Trend Micro PC-Cillin
This software may need to be disabled or even completely uninstalled in order for the USB connector to connect. If you are uncomfortable doing this, we suggest that you work with the software manufacturer for help allowing the Nintendowfcreg.exe program to access the Internet, or purchase a wireless router instead. (Click here for tips on locating a compatible router).

For more information about anti-virus and firewall software, click here.

Are you using a router?
If so, then your router may be using the same IP address as the USB Connector (usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1). You will need to make an adjustment to your router and computer's settings:

Log into the router, change the router�s default IP to 192.168.2.1.
Click the "Start" menu on the PC, click on "Control Panel". Look for "Network Connections" or "Network and Internet Connections". If you have "Network and Internet Connections", you will have to click "Network Connections" inside of "Network and Internet Connections".
Right-click on the Local Area Connection that corresponds with the USB connector, choose "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" and click "Properties".
If the IP address is set to "Use the following IP address", change it to "Obtain the address automatically". Close TCP/IP options, then close the properties for the Local Area Connection.
Then test the connection.

Error Codes: 51100-51102

"The WEP key for the Access Point you are attempting to connect to has changed since you last connected."


What to do:
Verify the Access Point's WEP Key is entered correctly into the Nintendo DS. If your router has slots for more than one WEP key, the first (#1) must be the one selected on your router. If you need assistance, click here and select your router manufacturer and model number. If available, Nintendo's router pages can provide specific steps and information that may help you with your router's WEP Key.

If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:

Errors ending in 0 = Connection File 1
Errors ending in 1 = Connection File 2
Errors ending in 2 = Connection File 3
Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector

If the above information does not work, and you are connecting at home with a wireless router, there could be settings on your router that need to be adjusted. Click here for more information.
