    Hey,

    My whenever my friend tries to connect online in a game he gets this error: 006-0533
    He isn't the smartest around computers/networking so I tried to help him.

    I've googled the error and checked nintendo's error code site, but nothing helped..
    It LOOKS like it's an connection error, But the 3DS browser still works fine (visiting websites works) so he HAS internet, He can also connect to the eshop and download updates/demo's. All of this has been proven.
    However.. As soon as he tries to go online in ANY game, he gets the error, He uses legit game cards, so no sky3ds or gateway. He's also on the latest firmware (9.5.0E?)

    After alot of googling and thinking we did the following things:

    Delete all connections, then add it again.
    Tried another DNS server (as recommended by Nintendo) (googles DNS: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4)
    Tried to forward the internet through a PC with wifi dongle (PC has cable internet, hosts a wifi network, 3ds connects to it) (Yes internet sharing was on and he HAS internet this way, proven via eshop and browser), However, still the same error: 006-0533
    He does not have access to his router, But a (router) firewall problem should be excluded as he also tried to connect through his forwarded internet via his PC and his windows firewall was off.

    I have no idea what's wrong and stopping him from going online, We really want to play MH4U or Smash together.

    Does he use flashcarts like GW, Sky? If so then he might have gotten banned.

    Yeah it's jsut the issues he is having is a lot like the ban that has been going around which is why I'm asking questions to try to figure out what is going on.

    Weird, since he doesn't have a Gateway or SKY3DS...

    Call Nintendo and/or try a public hotspot e.g. McDonalds.

    I remember I got an error in MK7 back the day and I couldn't ever find anyone to play with except very, very sporadically. Most of the times it would just time out. Turns out it was my shitty ISP's router. I ditched that and bought a DDWRT router and everything was solved. This doesn't seem the case, but it doesn't hurt to try another wifi network.

    What about going to the 3DS Friends list? Does that work?

    Damn, I was just gonna post this. I don't get it why most people can't use the error code lookup on nintendo's website, everything's explained there.

    The error codes are so vague at best.

    Nintendo can't account for every router config possible. Most that people use at home are terrible excuses for a router given to them by the ISP's with barely no good port forwarding set up, hence the frustration when playing online games.


    Vodafone, but same router. Absolute trash.

    He doesn't have any flash cards,

    And we kinda ruled out router problems by routing his internet through his PC, he has the same ISP as me so that should be the problem.

    He can access his friends list and can see me online. Just all online features in any game are unaccessible as it will give the error..

    Also I can ask him to try another access point somewhere but that won't happen for atleast a week
