A strange issue I have since a long time preventing any attempt to get my DS online. I use a Linux AP ( which means a laptop with a wifi card able of ad-hoc mode ) with the rest of the LAN without a problem so the AP is working. Now the DS doesn't. The strange thing is that when I scan for the AP with the DS it is reported with all values correctly ( name, access mode ). For eliminating error sources I use a plain connection with no restrictions ( public mode ). The DS always detects the AP while scanning but trying to connect it suddenly says it can not connect. The settings are all correct ( static IPs on both ends ). Using a dumper on the AP I can not see the DS at all ( other wifi pcs are shown just the DS not ). Any idea why the DS can not connect to my AP?
