I setup wireless on my DS last night and all I needed was my WEP key, had it up and running within minutes so just make sure you have your details to hand and you should be fine (assuming your Router has a WEP key and not a WPA key)

Found the SSID & entered that & WEP key,tested the connection & my DS said it couldnt find any devices in range even though it was sitting on the router.
I'll wait till my other half gets home as she's the computer expert.

On the Orange / Wanadoo live box there is a pairing button on the back.. .. .. you need to press this before you search for the router.. .. (apparently)
