    Is there any homebrew available that allows me to transfer files between my DS and my computer (both ways) using the wireless? If it is possible; what is the max speed and would you recommend it?

    EDIT: I've tried dsFTP but i just can't get it to work (well actually i can't get FTP to work at all =[ ).

    DSFTP would be the main candidate. Usually it maxes out at about 30 kb/s when sending to the DS, a bit faster when reading from the DS.

    To get DSFTP to work, you first run the *.nds file on your DS, which will turn the DS into an FTP server. If you haven't setup the configuration files, it will generate a username and password for you to use. Use an FTP client such as i.FTP or SmartFTP (shareware) to connect to the DS. From there it should be fairly self-explanatory.

    There's also Lilou Combox but that one is very difficult to configure correctly.

    The last one I can think of is the use of DSLinux, using either FTP or the SAMBA network support.

    DSFTP is the only way AFAIK. It's also ridiculously slow, it'll take ~2 hours to dump a 128MB game through FTP, err ~20KB/s?

    I'm going to try DSFTP again. Can anyone my diagnosing my problem?

    DSFTP works on my DS, it connects acquires DHCP and authenticates and connects.

    I'm using FileZilla atm. I think the main problem is with my router/firewalls because i can't event connect to my uni's ftp server.

    Do i need to configure my router or anything because my ftp client isn't connecting to it.
