    as the title says,I'm thinking of using dslinux on my DS just to use its "supposedly" faster internet connection...dunno if that's true though.

    is it true that dslinux can go up to speeds of 100kbp/s?
    how easy is it to use?

    I want it JUST for greater internet speed and nothing more! [​IMG]

    I'm not sure exactly how fast it goes, but it does go faster than the "standard" libraries allow, IIRC.

    Yes. The Wifi library that DS Linux uses can go up to about 100kb/s... But there's 2 catches:
    1). You need a RAM expansion pack, any of them should work (Official browser, M3 Real RAM pak, EZFlash 3-in-1, etc).
    2). They are text-based browsers without a GUI and do not display images.

    Actually, there is an option on DS linux to allow images.

    Meh, no real tutorial needed. All you have to do is type "links -g" instead of standard "links" or "retawq" to launch the browser. That said, you typically do need slot-2 RAM if you want to even connect to Wifi without crashing.

    Just for the hell of it, here's a wifi script that someone made ages ago. Put it in your /linux/usr/bin/ folder. I honestly don't remember the syntax for it, but one of the options sets up your default wifi connection, one attempts to connect using said default connection, one scans for open connections and manually connects, one scans for open connections and automatically attempts to connect, and one manually connects to the SSID of your choice using manual settings.

    It's been useful for me, at least.
