    Hey guys,

    I'm using an original DS (Phat) and an Edge with the latest firmware (1.36 or 1.37, I can't recall). I've successfully tried connecting to Nintendo's WFC with commercial carts and ROMs. I've even just finished playing a smooth game of Mario Kart DS over WiFi. The AP itself is owned by the college and uses WEP encryption. The problem that I'm having is that my homebrew rarely connects to the AP, even though commercial games (Both on commercial carts and ROMs) worked just fine. At times my homebrew refuses to connect to the AP at all.

    I've tried connecting to the Internet with DSOrganize, and now it just sits there saying "Associating" until it says "Failed to connect". It turns out, that DSOrganize will connect if I configure it to use its own settings, and not load from the firmware. I have also had rare success with NDSMail and savsender.

    It seems as though there may be an issue with the homebrew reading my firmware or something? Any suggestions or ideas would be helpful, I'm rather technical minded, too.

    For your firmware settings, do you have a manual setup?

    About a year ago, I was trying to get homebrew to get online. All I did was manually set up the SSID, IP address, subnet mask, gateway and primary DNS, then it worked.

    Try that if you haven't, and ask if you don't know what to put in.

    mine is all auto, all homebrew works for me. keep in mind the wifi lib is very buggy and a college network is very busy. it might just be a combination of the two. try connection on a private network at a friends house to see if it works. you need to debug off the campus to make sure the issue isn't with the campus network.

    On the contrary, the DS stands for Developer's System primarily. It CAN mean Dual Screen, but for developers it means Developer's System.
