    I have figured out a lot since I got my Acekard 2.1 but I'm having trouble with a few things. If possible, please link to tutorials or guides with very detailed steps (or be detailed when responding).

    1. How do I browse the internet on the NDS?
    2. How do I use AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) on the NDS?
    3. I'd like to use ebooks on the NDS. How do I do that?
    4. What are some recommended programs to use to write text on the NDS?

    Thank you for any help!

    1) you either need to use a slot-2 expansion pack (like the ezflash 3in1) or one of those watered-down homebrew browsers. (DSOrganize comes with one I believe)
    2) DSAIM - homebrew
    3) DSReader - homebrew (no pdf files, just to let you know)
    4) DSOrganize

    But how do I actually get the DS to connect to the internet. I've downloaded DS AIM and DSOrganize but I can't get it to connect to my wireless access point.

    You have to set it up in your DS system settings to allow connections to your router. The manual explains how to do this.

    To do this with DS lite/phat, you need to run wifi enabled games like Mario Kart DS, Bleach DS an others.

    Oh ya, my bad. I have a DSi so I assumed it was the same for the Phat/Lite.

    Thanks guys, I'll try this to see what's up.

    EDIT - I was able to get online with Mario Kart but I wasn't able to get on AIM or the web browser. Is there anything I may be missing?

    dsorganize should be renamed to dsCorruptmyMSD. its funny how you won't often notice the damage that it did. the last problem i had was 1 rom not working right after using dsorganize. i've also had it stop akaio from flashing to psram but not nor. dsorganize is a great idea but poorly executed and no longer updated.

    dsnotes and wordds are much better note taking applications.

    you need to have ssid set to public broadcast for homebrew to connect to your access point. retail games/roms do not require this.

    DSorganize should be the new DISorganize - corrupts my sd card a lot

    DSOrganize is useful for getting to access points that the normal games can't because the range is too small.

    The previous version of DSOrganize is much more stable than the latest release. Use version 3.1129, which is the latest stable release.

    Note that sometimes commercial games say "I was able to connect to internetz, but no gain nintendo WIFI". If you use a combination of DSO and Bunjaloo, you can usually get past those "cliky heres to get internetz".
