    The wiki has been down all weekend, with no explanation that I see here. I need to get the DSX recovery tool from it to unbrick my friend's DS-X, so can someone tell me what's going on?

    See that hole in your wall?
    No, it's not. If you're getting "Server not found" errors or something similar, then your ISP (or whoever runs your dns server) needs to get their dns updated. Some people are having the same problem with mobile.gbatemp.net, blogs.gbatemp.net, pix.gbatemp.net, etc.

    Is there a way of updating the dns yourself?

    If you need a quick fix, open C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (no file extention) in notepad or another text editor and add this line:

    Code:
    91.121.116.97ÂÂÂÂwiki.gbatemp.net
    That's a tab between the IP and the domain name. You can also add more lines like this for the mobile, pix, and blogs sub-domains.


    Also, if you've been connected to the net for a few days, you might want to clear your computer's cached dns before you try the hosts fix. You do this by opening a command line and typing 'ipconfig /flushdns'.
    And then check if your ISP's updated yet using 'nslookup wiki.gbatemp.net'. If it resolves to the above IP, then it's working (although it'll resolve if you still have the quick fix in your hosts file).
