    Hi, just got a blue 3ds + Super SF4 during the weekend and I'm pretty darn happy with it [​IMG], but I've been having some trouble connecting it to my wireless network at home. Basically, I have a dlink dir-300 wireless router and its currently set to use WEP so that my ds lite can connect to it. When I go to setup my 3ds network connection, it sees the AP fine and during the test connection, it seems to connect no probs to the router, but once it moves to the next step of connecting to the net, it fails almost instantly with a 003-2101 error. I even tried all sorts of different security types, not using dhcp, even using no security and same thing. Everything else hooked up to my router works though, whether it be a wired or wireless connection (PC, laptop, ps3, ds lite, psp etc). Heck, even the DS wifi settings for the 3DS test connects successfully...

    I already tried updating the firmware to the one that includes the free 3d video by connecting wirelessly at my work place and still, I am greeted with the same 003-2101 at home. I also tried unplugging everything from the network so that the 3ds would be the only one connecting and still nothing. Anyone have an idea what's up? Thanks for any help

    EDIT:
    I forgot to mention that it did connect once yesterday, but then I tried redoing the test connection afterwards just to be sure and it failed and never connected again until now T_T

    I have dir-300 too.
    You just need to put the IP on your 3DS to static.
    It should be 192.168.1.103

    Thanks for the suggestion but that didn't work for me. It gets to the internet connecting test part then same error shows up

    Hi, already tried using a static ip and it didn't make any difference. I don't think that's the problem since it seems to connect fine to the router either way. It just keeps failing the internet test.

    Did you give it a static IP in the router AND the 3DS?

    Weird how it works in DS compatibility mode but not for 3DS.

    Exactly. Man, I hope the major update coming this May will solve the problem, but I don't know. I can't seem to find anyone else with the same problem

    I dunno.
    It looks like it's trying to connect to something.nintendo.com to test the connection and your dns isn't up to scratch.
    Not sure the ds did that.

    For me I had to define the ip, subnet, gateway, and DNS manually but it worked fine then. I have a dlink dir-655 myself
