    Does anyone know the IP Addresses of the servers a Nintendo Console connects to when they connect to Nintendo WFC? Are any packet packet captures or breakdowns available? If all this info was made available to the right people they could find a way to make WiFi work in emulators or maybe more. I myself would like to try but for now I lack equipment/resources to gather this information and to experiment with it but that is why forums and search engines exist.

    The problem isn't what it's connecting to, it's emulating the hardware that does it.

    Didn't some DS emulator support WiFi for a very limited time?

    Some builds of some emulators support it, but they do nothing to make it easy to access since they don't want people fucking up the WFC.

    This tool has some of the info you want, though it's specifically for pokemon games. It's an emulator for the pokemon wifi trading thing, so it hosts and uses some of the functions to fake being WFC.
