Introduction: How to Find Out Your WEP/WPA Key

About: I hate brussel sprouts... Yeah, you really expected that in a profile didn't you?

I like to connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi, and this is the easiest way to find out your WEP key.

Also, this is my first Instructable* so please feel free to comment.

*Actually I was thinking of making a battery drainer but the battery holder unfortunately melted while I was soldering.

Step 1: Go to the Control Panel!!!

Go to the control panel and double-click the "Wireless set-up wizard" (or something like that).

Step 2: Add More Computers!!!

(Don't worry, you actually aren't)

Click "Add computers to the ******** network" and click on the manual button.

Step 3: Nearly Done!

(You aren't printing it out either)

Click the print button and it should come up with a file that contains your WEP/WPA key.

Step 4: You're Done!

It's simple! Now get yourself a beer and enjoy the good life. (Under 18s, OJ will do.)

    Drinking age here is 21 T_T I'm pretty sure the DS can't connect to a wireless network with WPA security, can the Wii do it?

    Yep, but only a few types. The DS definitely doesn't support WPA.

    Does the router support 802.11B? make sure it's not A,G or N. If it supports all of them (or 2 of them) make sure B is also turned on, however this would double the radio waves and kick out more radiation, although it's probably not that dangerous.

    You actually need to set alot more stuff for the DS.
    One thing ist the WEP Support is really poor, even when you meed all specs of Nintendo it doesnt work.
    There was a homepage listing some other Settins you would have to change.

    One thing i had to do was setting the Basic rate to 1-2Mbps,

    In the end.. Nintendo just messed up wlan on the DS badly...
    I stopped using it because i didnt wanna mess up my wlan and lower security just for that small thing.

    A good Solution probably would be that Nintendo USB wlan dongle that makes it possible to connect your DS to the Network of the host PC.

    Probably not but you might want to rotate the desktop background just in case ;)

    Just so that you know, holding down the ALT key while taking a screen shot will result in a screen shot of only the focused window (not showing your desktop etc) :)

    Uhh... No. This is for the people with wireless routers wanting to connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi.

    Sorry, I misunderstood... I thought "Nintendo" was modifying "WiFi" but I suppose it could be describing the system the device is connecting to...
