    But works perfectly with all commercial titles. They take forever to connect and then I get an error. I get this with DS Organize and every other online homebrew.

    Have you tried forwarding the ports of your router to your DS?

    I have a DS Lite and a Phat, I'll try that out.

    How do I forward the ports on my router?

    I had this problem, exactly the same symptoms.
    This is very strange but I solved it by changing my wifi channel from 1 to 10 on my router.
    I'm not the only one who solved the problem like that.

    Hope that help

    That's how I instantly enable homebrew WiFi. I have SSID reporting off by default though for security reasons, but if I want to play around with homebrew WiFi DS games, that's the simple fix.
