    I recently bought a polar white DS lite from amazon.ca. I am also using the R4 with 2GB microSD and I have wifi set up in the firmware.

    I can connect fine with commercial games and opera browser. But homebrew such as NDSmail and beup cannot find my wireless settings even though they are saved in the firmware. They can't even find my router (WRT54GL running DD-WRT, ssid visible). It is not listed in their wifi list. But the firmware can easily find the router as well as DSorganize. DSorganize reads the firmware settings perfectly. Its just that ndsmail and beup can't seem to find my AP. Is there any way to fix this?

    AFAIK Beup doesn't work now anyway, so you aren't missing out.

    And I don't know how NDSmail works...

    Change your wireless channel. I remember back when then wifilib didn't support all of the channels (and i used high channels, like 3 and 5 because they were less populated in my area). Try channels 11 or 7, and all should work fine.

    I also use a WRT54GL, but with tomato [​IMG]

    I'm guessing NDSmail was updated a long time ago. Newer DS Lites contain updated Wifi chips that weren't supported at all in the older Wifi library. The only solution would be to recompile the program with the updated wifi library. The fact that DSOrganize works strengthens the argument that this is the problem.
