    I connected the Nintendo DS Lite correctly and successfully to my router.
    Well, after that I go ingame...
    For 30 seconds I stay connected and the WiFi signal is full (That tells me the DS with green and all bars full).
    But suddenly the DS tells me the WiFi signal is dead (red, no bars) and I can't do anything more with the WiFi connection. It doesn't find the router anymore.
    It's not a problem with my router because I can connect to it with my notebook perfectly.
    Does anyone had the same problem and how to solve it?

    Not enough info. Which card are you using? Which game/rom? What connection type (WEP/WPA)? Any sort of protection on your router (whitelist/blacklist)?

    Card: Supercard DSTwo (got the same problem earlier with M3Real) (And also with original cartridges...)
    Game: Every game (It doesn't depend on the game)
    Connection Type: I turned of WPA, so that there's no encryption
    Router: No blacklisting or whitelisting. Tried it with 2 different routers.

    WPA is your problem. The DSlite only handles WEP (the most basic encryption)

    Edit: Did you switch over to WPA or did you turn off ALL encryption methods?

    Before I had any flashcart, I only had one original cartridge. This one worked with WiFi without any problems.
    Since I got the M3Real and connected it to WiFi the problems started...
    Can it be that M3Real damaged my WiFi antenna??!!

    I turned off every encryption...

    I don't think so. If you're not connecting with the two different routers, maybe your settings for your DS needs to be re-entered.

    Well, based on the information that you've given me, my only other opinion is to enter your router info manually into your DS.

    If someone else has a better idea, jump right on in!!!
