is your access point visible to other devices? make it public with password if neccesary.

set your password to WEP and not WPA or WPA2. that may be the cause of you not connecting.

I have Mario Kart DS (played it for ages on DSphat) and I bought a DSi....Now when I go to play Kart online(on the DSi) it says since the game is in a different DS and I will lose all my Wifi records...Is there anyway around this?

The server recognises the data of your game using the basis of the console (when the Wifi servers of nintendo creates and give you a friend code, it says you cant use the cart in another DS), you will lose all of the info if you use another DS

You can transfer your ID to another DS so that the new DS is the "owner" of the wifi data, here is a little video I found on youtube on how to do it.

Odd, I can't either. Same goes for other games Metroid Prime Hunters...Is the server down or something?

I had the same problem, but my friend helped me fix it.

Here is what we did

1. go to your router settings on the internet
2. go to the wireless section
3. turn wep into shared. (From authentication type)
