    I got this too. Sometimes it will happen so many times in a row that it renders the DS unusable.
    Call Nintendo and ask for a repair.

    I get this message too. I expect you may have downloaded the latest update. I know I did and got that message.

    I expect its from not using "real" NDS (meaning paid NDS) cards.

    My NDS works with an authentic card but not with the card that has my other roms on it.

    I've discovered 3 solutions for this error.
    [*]If error apperas just after start go to TS callibration mode press and hold bottons L R start select and press Power Follow the instructions on the screen.[*] If update is available do it.[*]Sometimes WiFi board is faulty. You can try to replace it with a working unit.

    Try restoring the DSi to it's factory default settings or update the DSi to the newest firmware.
