    Well yeah sounds stupid but how do i do that ?

    I say to download in standby closed the shop and put the 3ds on stand by and say what after an hour all downloads are still at 0% and internet is definietly on so yeah what could i possibly doing wrong ?


    P.S. if it actually would download something which it seems not to do would it still do that if i am not in standby but in a game ?

    It works fine for me. I think you need to have the 3DS in the cradle, but I'm not sure about this.

    1. Get in the eShop get your downloads ready, chose the stand by option.
    2. Close all programs you've opened(eShop)
    3. Close your 3DS, check your wireless light thing, when it stops blinking then it should be ready

    Also, I'm not sure if this matters, but your home screen might have to be showing. It always works fine for me when following these steps.

    You just need to be in the home menu with no software open simple as that.

    You only need to have your 3ds connetdet to the internet and closed. you can see this by pressing A on the download

    there are rarely any big downloads now, especially for ambassador titles. the fact that it's taking you so long means your internets suck. i'm on a sucky 3G modem, no data plan, but i still managed to get every GBA title except the two biggest ones in around 10mins. that should put a stark contrast between the quality of my internet connection against yours.
