    Edit: A "SSL vulnerability" was recently discovered by Shutterbug2000, making the WFCPatcher and/or cheat codes useless from now on. This means you can play WFC without any special modifications or devices. A RiiConnect24 DNS has been added, but the list of applications that work is still the same as Wiimmfi's list.

    Before you go ahead and watch this tutorial, please check the following first:
    1. Can you set up a hotspot?
    If yes, download a hotspot program for your PC and set the hotspot settings to WEP.
    If not,
    2. Do you may have an old router with a WEP key or connection?
    If yes, connect the router and find the WEP key.
    I not, then follow this tutorial.

    There are many out there that will, but can't play Wiimmfi on DS so they will never ever be able to experience Mario Kart DS online again. That is until now.
    Again, you can go ahead and use a hotspot, but WEP connections can be cracked within 5 minutes, making everything leakable.

    This tutorial will show you how to play NDS Wiimmfi without the need of a hotspot, but instead of the old Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.

    After doing some research, I found out that the connector basicly works as a transmitter that sends out all necessary data (including DNS-info).

    What you will need

    Setting up the software
    Changing your DNS Settings
    Connect to the Internet

    Did it work out? Was you able to go online? Need some help? Let me know!

    Is the invite working...?


    Also, it should probably be known that you can do this with DSiMenu++ (ROM) or NitroHax (AR codes) for DSi users.

    What you need:
    • Patched ROM
    • Flashcart
    • An unsecured hotspot with a MAC whitelist
    Done.

    Well, I never could find any easier methods because they're either unsecure or they just don't work.
    At least for me this worked, so...

    um...
    I don't know.

    The Discord invite?
    I double-checked, it should be fine.

    You're all WAY overthinking it.

    Get an old router, a new router, any router that supports WEP.
    Put a password on it, just for giggles.
    Turn SSID Broadcast to Off. (Remember what your SSID is, though.)
    Connect DS to router.
    Turn off router when done playing.

    If anyone takes the time to hack your game while you're playing it, what did you do to them?

    What if they don't have an old router or can't find one?

    Set up your existing router. Create an access point with no password, but set a MAC address whitelist so only authorised devices can connect. Add your DS's MAC address.

    To be fair, not everyone here can just buy a router and set it up in their home coughcough peoplethatlivewiththeirparents cough. A guest/secondary connection would be my choice, but, I don't think all routers support it. At the moment my main connection is unsecured, because I live in the middle of nowhere.

    Also, not all routers even allow insecure connections, according to people that I have spoken to about this.
