Okay, so the girlfriend, in all her awesomeness, got me a nintendo DS for christmas. I'm trying to get online, but i'm running into problems. I've got a netgear router, and my connection is set up with a wep key for protection. I entered in the wep but it still won't connect. Another security measure I have is to only allow the mac ID's that I input, namely my wifi adapter on the PC. Do I just need to disable this to get the DS working, or is there more I need to do?

are YOU on the beer list?

    Um, how is the DS going to connect if its MAC address isn't in the router if your router uses MAC address filtering?

    It's not, what I was wanting to know was weather or not there was a way to find the DS mac, or if I was just going to have to turn off the filtering.

    Does this work?

    (I think it's hilarious that a university adds individual game-console MAC addresses to their list before they can get online. There's no reason why I find it hilarious, I just do.)

    I'll try that when I get home. Thanks a lot VC. If you don't mind, I want to keep this open till this afternoon to make sure it works, and if it does I'll put in a solved tag.

    No. Bitchface.
    Sure, that's fine. Just mark it when you're done.

    Alright, everything worked out fine. That site did the trick. Thanks VS

    A NOTE TO EVERYONE!\

    If you have a wireless router, don't forget your password....

    In the end I was able to add the DS mac ID to keep the network security in tact.
