    This is on both DS Lite and DSi with either WFC games or the DSi browser, regardless of WEP/WPA2 encryption. I use a Linksys WRT54GL with newest stock firmware and normally, I simply can't connect to the internet. It tends to come up with different error messages, but most of the time it's something related to IP config (can look up the error message/code if it helps).

    The strange part is, if I just save the settings on the router, without changing anything, it basically works fine 100% the next time I try it, and I'm not kicked out of the game or anything. What does saving the settings do to make it work?

    I should also probably note that I've only ever had this problem with the DS, not with other consoles...
