    I have a DSI XL I want to play MKDS on while playing on Wiimmfi. I followed MrBean35000vr's video on how to do this by changing the DNS of the network (Open hotspot from my phone, don't know if that's important). I followed all the instructions correctly and then went to connect to Wiimmfi. It all seems normal, at least for the first couple of seconds. After that, the wheel in the bottom right corner begins to hang a little. Then after a few more seconds, the entire DSI freezes and hangs, requiring a reboot.

    Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but if any of you know, please let me know.

    Some info that may be useful:
    DSI Frimware: 1.4.5U
    Network: Open hotspot from my phone
    DNS used:
    If you need any other info, let me know

    Thanks :)

    I was having the same problem. I was never able to connect my dsi to wiimmfi, but I was able to connect it to the AltWFC server by barronwaffles on github. Same way as on the Mr. Beans tutorial, just a different DNS. I also had to go into the Nintendo WFC options and erase my profile, since the new servers cannot easily recognize profiles that were created on the original server. After I changed those two things I was able to connect. I would still like to be able to connect to wiimmfi though, because that service has a lot more users. I'm still very new to the DSi hacking scene, so if anyone else has a better solution I'd love to hear it.
