    I don't know why. What I did was entered my wi-fi settings in Mario Kart DS and Animal Crossing, they detect my AP but after I entered WEP hex key it says failed to connect. But I did the exact same thing in FFIII it says connection sucessful.

    I don't think there really is a solution to that. I have never gotten DSOrganize to connect, but everything elsee works fine. If it were me, I'd take off the WEP code from your router...sorry [​IMG]

    Only thing I know for sure about homebrew apps that use WiFi is that SSID reporting MUST be enabled in your router. That is not the case for normal DS games, or the DS Web-Browser, only homebrew. Don't know why.

    I imagine it's the same deal with WEP encryption, it must be disabled for homebrew apps/games. But I never tested that theory. My guess is that homebrew doesn't use the WiFi settings you configured in the DS for your mainstream games/apps, or doesn't access them properly to work on secured networks.

    All I know is that in my wireless setup, I have SSID broadcasting turned off and WEP encryption enabled. My games and the Opera browser work that way, but DSOrganize does not.

    I don't know if this will help much.. but I had a similar problem too. I'm using a D-Link wireless router and after going through all the options for the DI-524 model (From Nintendo's help site http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na...acturer=D-Link) the DI-524vE1 version worked for me. I changed my authentication to shared key and animal crossing now works alongside FFIII and all those games
