    As the title says, What can i do? I have one computer that can only connect through LAN, an Android phone running Cyanogenmod 11 that doesn't have service, and a tablet running Cyanogenmod 12.1that has a broken tether

    EDIT: riilay straight up says "This method does not work for you" on my tablet, and wifi gets disabled on my phone

    What you're basically saying is "All my options are fucked. What options do I have?"
    Unless you can get any of those things working, what were you expecting from us? Magic?

    I have a spare router running DD-WRT that i have no idea how to hook up to my main router, so i already technically tried that method.. it failed because the router couldn't connect to the internet

    i expected to have some other option, like.. i do have a usb dongle, but nbahomepass doesn't work on windows 10 -at all- for me, and using a virtual machine then forwarding it crashes my computer, other option i have afaik is to install windows 7/8 on a spare drive and try nbahomepass on that

    Is it a modem/router or just a router?

    There is actually a whole article on the dd wrt site (or wiki?) that handles connecting a dd wrt to a functioning network...
    If you're lucky it will work when you reset the settings (holding the reset button for like...dunno 10 secs?) and then plugging the ethernet port of dd wrt to a LAN port of your router...

    It's a dlink router.. and we connected it to a modem, so i guess it's just a router. My main router is a mode/router though.. and takes from cable

    I'll see if installing windows 8 amd then trying nbahomepass works first, then i'll try the router method again

    Using an Ethernet cable, connect it to the output of your main router and the single Ethernet input of your spare one. You'll have two WiFi SSID's that share the same service. Connect to the main router and enter the IP for the second one (it won't be the default Gateway since it's basically a secondary device) to configure it as you like.

    i'm probably being some sort of dumbass, nbahomepass 2.10 isn't working on windows 8 either, and it's the middle of the night.. so i can't do the router setup just yet

    The 3ds straight up doesn't seem to want to connect and get any streetpass tags, and i don't have any connections setup.. like i'm supposed to, although it says it's connected to the internet once every minute or so for like 5 seconds, so i assume this is what's supposed to happen?

    EDIT: was nbahomepass rendered useless sometime during 10.4?

    Do me a favour and check whether you have connections configured in your sysNAND plz.
    I had this set up once and everything failed because i had no conns in emuNAND configured, but had them in sysNAND.

    on your spare router, don't connect to the "internet" port. Simply connect a regular port to a regular port on your main router. In the settings, say... your main router is 192.168.1.1, set the spare to 192.168.1.2 and set the gateway to 192.168.1.1. DNS can also be 192.168.1.1, or you could throw in google or some other valid DNS address.

    I don't use any software at all for homepassing. I just manually change the wireless MAC as I feel like it. If you are connecting through a router, no software on your PC will help you. the software stuff is only useful if you're using a wireless dongle. (unless you have a script that runs directly on the router itself. Either way, your PC/OS would have nothing to do with it.

    I'm so bad at fiddling with routers that i just locked myself out... is there an actual guide out there than vaguely "just connect your router to a router and chamge the mac"?

    There you go.
    In simple terms:
    Reset dd wrt router
    Connect DD WRT via LAN port to a LAN of your origin router
    Configure IP adresses
    done...

    However, check the full article..this should work...as I am using this setuop at home and it works perfectly fine...
