    Hi

    I've tried to connect my 3DS to my Virgin Media Router (Netgear underneath) but when after I search for the router and I click on it I'm requested to enter the password. When I do it instantly rejects it and says "The data you entered is incorrect". I have 3 3DSs and none of them work. My Wii U, Laptop and phone all connect fine though.

    I've tried WPS aswell but it also doesn't work.

    I know my password it correct and what's odd is that my 3DS in the past has been able to connect.

    Any help/tips?

    Hi there,

    Just created a new account to reply to this.

    I had this exact same problem, also with a 3DS and my Virgin Media router (in my case the Superhub 2). I fixed it by manually changing my router's authentication settings from WEP (Auto) to WPA2-AES.

    As soon as I was able to connect (I manually entered the SSID etc - not sure if this was necessary), I needed to do a system update so hopefully this issue has now been fixed. Fingers crossed...

    Edit: disabling 'Greenfield mode' in the router control panel fixed it after the 3ds refused to connect again.

    Thanks for the reply. I fiddled with some of the settings and the 3DSs connect now. Hopefully this can help others that are having the same problem
