    When I run homebrew applications on my NDS Lite, wifi refuses to work [​IMG] Commercial games don't have problems, only homebrew. Now, I found this wifi fixer and it worked for BEUP, but it doesn't work for DSLinux. And I really need it. So if anyone can help me with this, please. [​IMG]

    you must be clever. So listen up go into your router's settings. Go to wi-fi settings on ur ds. find your connection and below enter ur own ip adress etc. On the routers status page it should say the numbers u need

    Note when it says ip adress put the last number high like 60

    Adding a static ip doesn;t work. I can't even find ap's with beup (not-patched version)

    Is your SSID hidden? Can you connect with DSOrganize? What device do you have, and do you have slot-2 RAM (DSLinux will run out of RAM when attempting to connect to the Internet if you don't have slot-2 RAM available)?

    i've got both acekard2 and m3 real. DSOrganize connects to the homebrew database etc. No slot-2 ram.

    Then DSLinux is probably crashing as it attempts to connect to the Internet. The more recent builds use up a bit more memory than they used to, which is why this is happening.

    uhm did u make sure that ur settings are the firmware settings that the homebrew can use

    best way to do that is to go into a game and put in ur wifi settings and click save w.e

    then see if u can go into ur homebrew apps then cuz some hb apps autoread the ds firmware wifi settings
