    I have an acekard 2.1 and would like to know if there is some sort of software so I could upload games to my ds without removing my cart. If there isn't that would be kind of cool. Let me know. The acekard can update itself using wifi so there sould be a way to upload whatever I wanted to it right. THNX

    yes because AK can connect to a website and download a specific file, there must be a full-featured file xfer routine built in that negotiates between computer and DS.

    google around but it ain't in AKAIO and won't be.

    you can use DSFTP along with a PC app (like FileZilla) to transfer files to your DS via Wi-Fi,
    but be prepared to bring along a book to read while you wait because the transfer times are pretty slow @ 15/20kbs.
    It's still cool, but because of the slowness, its more of a novelty than a useful application

    Really? [​IMG]
    Is that a problem with DSFTP or the WiFi connection of the DS?

    its a problem with the DS... it wasn't made to handle extensive online usage besides what it needs to for wifi games.

    the libnds wifi stack is not super efficient.
    dslinux uses its own libraries for IPStack and is very fast.

    No, this is not getting ported because it's not a "port" thing; it's a core thing

    Smiths, can dslinux be used to transfer files between the DS and PC?
