    I searched for quite a while for a theard about this, couldn't find anything.

    When i try to connect to wifi with anything homebrew it just won't connect. I can connect fine with commercial games on the card and when i go to Configuration on DSOrganise it has my router's information there.
    Any idea why wifi ain't working on hombrew for me?

    If you can connect to wi-fi fine with a commercial game, it should work fine with homebrew.

    Is the access point configured in the first slot thing? (Out of 3 in the configuration menu) Sometimes that makes a difference.

    Yes, it is. My wireless router is the only access point i have registered.

    WEP only and SSID must be set to broadcast.

    It's best to use manual settings if possible rather than letting the router automatically assign the IP address and DNS settings. DHCP (the process of automatically obtaining these settings) isn't as refined in the homebrew wifi library as it is with the official one.
