    For some reason, when I try to connect to Mario Kart 7 I get "An error has occurred". I had my router's firewall disabled. I can use the eShop, Swapnote, Nintendo Video, Netflix, and the inernet browser with no problem at all. I had the update applied for MK7 and on the current 3DS firmware. Wireless Router I have is a Belkin. Any ideas?

    well that is right but it doesnt help as people like us didnt know how to do it...untill we did it....(like us lol if we never had this problem we wouldnt have known about it)

    so here is the deal...go to you routers settings on ur pc and do this

    search for DMZ (it's probably in the Advanced or NAT section/tab). Check "enabled" and assign it to your 3DS' IP (there should be a box there for setting the IP). If you don't know that IP, you should manually set one: on your 3DS, go to System Settings -> Internet Settings -> Connection Settings -> (select the one you're using) -> Change Settings -> Tap that arrow on the right of the touch screen -> IP Address -> Check 'No' -> Detailed Setup -> For the IP address, put XXX.XXX.XXX.150 (the Xs being the first 9 numbers of your router's gateway) -> For Subnet Mask, put 255.255.255.000 -> For gateway, put your router's gateway -> OK -> OK -> Now you must set the DNS... 004.002.002.001 for the Primary and 004.002.002.002 for Secondary (got these from Nintendo's Online Support) -> OK -> And finally... SAVE! Now just have to put the XXX.XXX.XXX.150 IP on the DMZ settings I mentioned earlier.

    well that was alot to type .....this should solve the problem...and ya this is port forwarding :)

    Tried what you posted flygon12345. Still get the same error. I'll try changing the wireless channels on my router then.

    If you have SIP ALG in ur settings then enable it.
    And try DMZ too.
    You do all the same that Flygon said + add the IP that you used for the 3DS in the DMZ.

    Yes, the 3DS IP is enabled in DMZ and did what Flygon said. I even tried adding it to the Virtual Server List and same thing. As for the SIP ALG, I cannot find in my router settings. If this helps any (Not sure if it does) Belkin Router F6D4230-4 v2
