    "Homebrew" is the plural of "homebrew". Try manually putting in every setting. Do WFC games work?

    Don't leave anything set to "automatic," set everything manually in the WFC screen and then try an app like DSO that connects directly to the internet

    Do commercial WiFi games will work fine when you try to connect?

    If you have SSID reporting turned off in your router, it won't connect with homebrew apps, but commercial games will.

    Try enabling SSID reporting if homebrew WiFi is important to you.

    My normal setup is SSID reporting off, WEP encryption enabled and MAC filtering enabled. Homebrew won't connect that way.

    Turning ON SSID reporting let's the DSOrganize web-browser connect, where it didn't before. Most, if not all, homebrew is like that.

    SSID is the culprit, all other settings can be left alone. It MUST be enabled for homebrew WiFi.


    Hope that helps you.

    So, you manually set the SSID in the WFC settings and it worked, but not for homebrew? Strange

    PS: What do you think about my avatar? About time that I got one! The Offspring ROCK!

    Er...no. SSID is turned on and off through the router's settings, not the DS's.

    For me, what made the difference was changing WEP from shared to open.

    What are you trying to connect it to?

    Shouldn't this be in the wifi forum if the problem isn't booting the homebrew?

    Try to use a wireless radio channel in between 5 and 11.
