    Is this sort of like the whole Wii connectivity thing where it's hit or miss? (I've been wondering, since whenever I get somewhere that has a hotspot, I can't really connect, even with the proper wep key and all.)

    I dunno if it's just me, but I'm just curious.

    Works fine for me on my cart. Are you trimming the roms and if you are what trimmer are you using?

    I haven't used any kind of trimmer. For the most part, I use roms that I just drag and drop onto the cart.

    Maybe I have to be closer to the hotspot for it to read. But doesn't the DS have about a maximum of 20 feet before it won't connect? Or am I wrong there?

    Mines got a pretty decent range, it picks up next doors router anyway, so I can't see yours being any differet. Is it all games it's having problems with or a select few?

    I haven't had a chance to test all of them. I don't have wifi at home yet, though I'm working on it. But I've tried Custom Robo Arena, Phantasy Star Zero and the only retail game I own, Pokemon Pearl.

    Does Pokemon work ok?

    I'll have to try it when I get to the local hotspot. If it doesn't, my DS is probably bricked or something.

    It probably will work, it's just better to test it just in case it doesn't. It rules out it just being the flashcart then. If it doesn't work it could be something as simple as it not being set up right.
