Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection

How to connect to the internet

Discover the possibilities of connecting your
Nintendo DS to the internet

Nintendo DS systems come with built-in wireless communication technology which lets them link up to Nintendo's online service, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. This easy-to-set-up service lets you compete with your friends online whenever you like; all that's needed is a Wi-Fi compatible game like Mario Kart DS or Animal Crossing: Wild World. Players can connect at home through their existing wireless broadband connection, or at public Wi-Fi hotspots.

Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection is not only easy, but also safe: you play with people you know by swapping Friend Codes. Plus, new voice chat technology means that in certain games, like Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, you can even talk to your competitors via the Nintendo DS microphone.

You can also use Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to access bonus content for games - in Professor Layton and Pandora's Box, for example, you can download enough weekly puzzles to keep you going for months!

Broadband internet connection is required. Internet usage charges may apply. Consult with your ISP
