    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).

    Go ahead and find these goodies first before you can begin:
    -A Nintendo DS/DSi/3DS/2DS
    -A Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector (you can find them easily on eBay for 10 bucks)
    -A laptop (recommended) or PC with Windows XP or Windows Vista (yup, Windows 7/8/8.1/10 are screwed for this tutorial, so grab your Compaq Presario 2500)
    -The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector Software
    -(A) A flashcart containing the ROM, TWiLight++ (DSi & 3DS-only) or an actual retail copy
    -A Wi-Fi Connection (rather over LAN or Wireless doesn't matter)

    Setting up the software on Windows XP/Vista is very self-explainitory, it doesn't work on Windows 7 and above (not even a VM) due to the software being not compatible.
    1. The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector software can be found here. (1.07 works the best).
    2. Unpack the *.zip file and run the setup. Before running the setup file, first plug in your Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector and make sure your Firewall either is disabled or isn't blocking the software.
    3. Go through the setup, everything goes by itself. (Again, if it failed, check your Firewall.)
    4. If installed successfully, a little icon that looks like this should appear every time you insert your USB Connector.

    Changing the DNS is the most important, as it will redirect your to either AltWFC or Wiimmfi.
    1. Click on the small Network icon that should be next to the Connector USB software. If it's not there, go to the Control Panel under "Network Properties".
    2. Click on the network you're on, a screen that looks like this should come up.

    3. Select on "Internet-protocol (TCP/IP)", and click on "Properties". A window that looks like this should come up.

    DNSSettings.PNG

    4. Do not select "Auto-DNS" and instead use either one of these DNS's:
    RiiConnect24:
    164.132.44.106 (Primary DNS)
    8.8.8.8 (Secondary DNS)

    A patch is required for one of these, but these have been seperated.
    Wiimmfi: 46.4.79.141
    AltWFC: 104.131.93.87

    (Leave the second spot alone unless you have chosen for the RiiConnect24 DNS)
    5. Click "OK" and close everything. You're now connected to Wiimmfi/AltWFC!
    1. Open up the game's WFC Settings for the game you've choosen.
    2. Click on "Connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector".
    3. A connection is trying to be made. Go back to your computer, open the USB Connector software, right-click on your name and press "Allow permission for connection".
    4. Wait for the DS to connect.
    If done successfully, quit the WFC menu.
    If you get error code 52003, your Firewall has made a grand return and blocks the connection. Disable the firewall or whitelist the connector-software.
    If you get error code 20100, it might be a server error on RC24's side. Try again later.
    If it cannot find your USB Connector, try again. It may take 2 or 3 tries.

    5. Go back to the game, connect to the internet (in my way, MKDS), and the game goes online!

    ...except the servers are so empty, nobody is there. Go ahead and ask a few friends if they can come online.
    If the game doesn't work, no matter what you try, it means it isn't supported. Check the compatibility list here.

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



    (Useless steps)
    With the SSL vulnerability, this step is now useless and seperated from the tutorial.

    We must patch a ROM (*.nds) file so the game will be able to run custom servers. I'll be using Mario Kart DS for this tutorial.

    1. Download AdmiralCurtiss' WFC Patcher here.
    2. Unzip all the contents from the *.zip file (all you will need is WfcPatcher.exe).
    3. Simply drag & drop the ROM you want to patch (and yes, you must get these ROMs yourself).
    (For developers: Want to re-direct the game to your own custom servers? Open up CMD, go to the folder you've stored the patcher and use this command:
    WfcPatcher.exe -d, --domain example.com)

    4. Your output should be "Rom (No SSL).nds".
    5. Copy the ROM to your SD-card, put it in your DS and turn it on.
    With the SSL vulnerability, this step is now useless and seperated from the tutorial.

    If you have a physical copy of the game and want to continue right where you left off, grab your DS Action Replay and put in either 1 of these Cheat Codes:

    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.

    Set your computer's wireless card to AP mode.

    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.

    Hey can I still use the patcher though? If I can just patch my rom and play it through my flashcard that'd be much easier than setting up all this stuff on the router and y'know..

    You no longer need to, just set the DNS and/or proxy setting(s) in your Wi-Fi enabled game.

    Oh yeah, this tutorial is sort of old. You can now use retail cards by changing the DNS settings in the WFC settings.
    I should update this.

    But I can't connect to the internet because I don't have a WEP connection only WPA2.

    Even with this patcher, you will still require an unsecured or WEP connection.

    If you have a laptop or smartphone, you can set it to AP/hotspot mode to create an easy connection for your DS.

    (Oh my actual damn I'm such a fricking idiot) ok thanks
    Oops turns out Windows 10 doesn't support WEP on its hotspot and I don't have any mobile data to give my DS guess I can't do it

    You can set no security.

    I can't find anything on Google about how to set no security. I'm really good at this. Exactly do I do that?

    You can try leaving the password field blank.
