All you need is a Nintendo DS wireless access to a broadband internet connection, and any DS game supporting online play.Get Connected

Just select your game's Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection feature and follow the step-by-step instructions to connect. For help getting connected,

Exchange Friend Codes with people you know or join games anonymously any time of day. Just look for the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection logo.Get Playing

Playing via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection also helps improve your game. Jump right in and have fun competing against the rest of the world!

The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection was developed to be easy to connect to, safe for everyone to use, and free. Games designed to take advantage of Nintendo Wi-Fi
Connection offer Internet play integrated into the game. The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection can support up to sixteen players on the Nintendo DS and
thirty-two players on Wii. Basic features of the Wi-Fi Connection include worldwide matchmaking, leaderboards, tournaments, and downloadable content.
Additional features are available between friends who have exchanged Friend Codes.

[edit] Friend Codes
Each game that uses the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection generates a unique twelve digit Friend Code that can be exchanged with friends and be used to maintain
individual friend lists in each game. Friend Codes are generated from an identifier unique to a copy of a game and the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ID of
a DS or Wii system. Using a different copy of a game or loading the same copy in a different system generates a new Friend Code.[1] In order for users
to become "Friends", they must mutually add Friend Codes and will be authenticated as Friends once both have gone online.
These measures are said by Nintendo to be conscious steps to preserve users' privacy. If a DS or Wii game is sold, but not the system,
there is no risk of the purchaser impersonating the seller. If a user needs to replace his or her DS system, then the old system's Nintendo Wi-Fi
Connection ID can be transferred wirelessly, to maintain the user's original Friend Codes on the new machine.

Many games have additional features that are enabled between registered friends. These may include customized matchmaking options, cooperative play,
friend lists, text chat, and voice chat.

The Nintendo DS has an 802.11b wireless adapter built in allowing the DS to access the service via any compatible wireless network.
Public hotspots that use a captive portal can be accessed after login using the Nintendo DS Browser. The connection settings allows players
to configure access to and save settings for up to three different networks. Connection settings can be detected automatically or entered manually.
The Nintendo DS is compatible with WEP encryption. Nintendo DSi, released in Japan on November 1, 2008, and in the USA on April 5, 2009, is
compatible with both WPA and WEP encryption for Internet applications such as the browser. However, all DS/DSi games that utilize Nintendo WFC
(Wi-Fi Connection) can only be used with WEP encryption.
