    I have a DSi and Acekard2i. The AK2i has problems with Wi-fi on every homebrew I've tried. Be it NDSmail, DSorganize (I know this wasn't made for DSi and has issues with the wifi setting), bunjalloo, and DSmaps. Is there a work around? I have the updated Akaio firmware. And is anyone continuing the development of DSorganize? Why isn't there any other PDA type apps for the touch screen device?

    Anyway N B4 Noob and all that other jazz.

    DSi's Wi-Fi works different so the WiFi is broken for all homebrew.

    All my WIFI homebrew works just fine on my DSi?
    Maybe you cant use the new WPA/WPA2 protocols that the DSi supports but not the older DS.
    My router is set up with WEP which the old DS supported [​IMG]

    Edit: Just tested Win2DS right now and it works just fine ?

    Yes that's it, you'll have to change your router's security settings.

    Use the WEP WiFi settings (Connection 1-3). You cannot use connections 4-6 for DS WiFi apps

    He may be thinking of when you try to connect to an an access point that requires you to log in at a page before you get internet access.
