    This is really makin me upset. Alright, so about a week ago, when trying to play wifi with a DS game it started acting funny. It wouldn't connect right away, then I would reset the DSi, (hard reset) and it would work. I had to do this about once a day. Well now that doesn't work anymore. So I figured I'd just go and re connect with the settings and it should be fine. Well now whn I go to connections 1-3 I try searching and get nothing, it does it for like 2 seconds (literally) and says no access point in range. So then I go to advanced settings an try it and I can connect to it. Keep in mind it's WEP. It also shows quite a few neighbors wifi as well. I tried setting up wifi thru a game as well, didn't work. The yellow light doesn't even blink. So, I'm coming to you very desperate, what should I do? Also, I'm on the DSi shop now, so the connection for Connection 4 works on DSi stuff, but not DS games [​IMG].

    UM that's weird....

    I would say it could be the router after all... but you said you hard reset your DSi and it worked temporarily...

    For some reason the Advanced Connection settings search better, I have no idea why though.

    As scrtmstr said, try calling Ninty tech service or send them an email explaining your problem.

    I would also recommend contacting Nintendo if the issue persists and have the professionals look at it.

    Ok, update. I was able to connect (sort of) with manual set up. I put in all the info and stuff, and then I try to connect and it gives me 050099-2 which I looked up. The problem is, everythings compatable, my old DS still connects, and my brothers DSi does. I don't have to use manual connection either, ideas?

    Well guys, I was able to fix it, I took my DSi apart and just kinda blew some dust out that was in it (sounds weird I know) and now it works XD. I just hope it's for good.
