    So my 3DS does this freaking irritating thing when I download games.
    Right now, I'm downloading Shin Megami Tensei IV.
    I hit download now.
    The little bubbles start filling up the download box.
    Then the little rack comes by with no bubbles attached to it like 10 times, and the download will stop, and I have to start it over again.
    However much it downloaded is still intact, so it's not like I lose everything that downloaded and have to start all over again.
    But in order to download a full game, I have to restart the download like 20-30 times before it finally finishes getting all the data.
    My wifi connection is fine, so I don't think that has anything to do with it.
    Anybody have this problem before? It's really weird...

    All I can really figure is that it's something with your wifi. I've downloaded two full 3DS games, as well as several eshop games now without any issues.

    The same thing happens to me, and it is really annoying and I can't find any solutions

    I done that, and I have also tweaked with my router settings and it is still giving me the download errors.

    Change the channel of your router to 11.

    I've never had any problems, why don't you try downloading in sleep mode? It might work.

    I've tried that too, and the downloads never start. They just sit there at the same percentage every time I check up on em.

    Turn off your firewall from your router settings and download the game. Turn it back on after your done if you'd like.
