What is AOSS and when would I use it?
AOSS stands for Air Station One-Touch Secure System. It is a proprietary method of security that automatically configures the SSID and WEP key for wireless routers made by Buffalo Technology and a wireless device connecting to it. You can use the AOSS setup method with any AOSS compatible router. AOSS capable routers will have a button on the router identified with the letters "AOSS." Review the documentation for your router to verify if it is AOSS capable before continuing with your setup.

I set up the DS with AOSS and now none of my other devices are able to connect wirelessly?
When using the AOSS feature of a router to setup the Nintendo DS, AOSS will change some of the settings of your router to match the required settings of the Nintendo DS. In order for you other devices to connect wirelessly, you will need to change the settings of your other wireless devices to match the new settings of the router. The main setting you will want to check is the security setting. The AOSS feature will create a WEP key that the DS will use. This WEP key will need to be entered in your other wireless devices.
