    Wherever you want me, baby.
    I keep getting this error, trying to enter it manually...

    Also, every device I have, but the 3DS, finds the access point, when I try to automatically find it. The 3DS doesn't though, so I'm entering manually.

    Any help would be AMAZING! Because I'm getting pretty pissed. Thanks!

    Just give it a static IP or reset your router's DHCP cache.

    EDIT: I just realized that since you're asking that question, you probably have no clue what I typed. Go lookup your PC's IP address. If it's something like 192.168.1.XX then try something that conforms to that on your 3DS (the XX can be anywhere between 1 and 255). So it would be 192.168.1.255. Your router (gateway) would probably be something like 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.254. Subnet should always be 255.255.255.0.

    How do I do the static IP thing?

    And eh. I don't have control of my router. I'd get my hand chopped off if I were to go anywhere near it...

    As you can see I get internet connecting (upper-left corner...)

    How do I fix this?

    I edited my previous post. It should tell you what you need. That should be an easier route than getting you to access your router's web UI.

    I tried what you edited in. Nothing helped...

    It doesn't even appear on my access point list when I try to find it. I don't understand. It works and shows up fine on every other device...

    Well, I mean what I gave you were examples. I can't tell you exactly what IP you should put in without having access to your router. Easier solution, go reset your router and just reconnect all your devices. Also, wipe the 3DS's wireless settings.

    No I know. I tried 255, I get "the address you entered is not correct", etc. So it's obviously not in the correct range.

    When I try anything 1 above or below, or more (or less), I get a different error. I'll show you in one second. Let me get a picture...

    You can't go above 255. Your range is 1-255. Actually, it's probably more like 2-253.

    I also have no clue what your table looks like. Instead of 192.168.1.XXX, it could be 10.0.0.XXX and the router could be assigned to some nonsense like 10.0.0.84. Either look up your router and learn how to reset your DHCP cache or just reset it and reconnect everything to it.

    IP Address: 010.000.001.123
    Subset Mask: Obvious
    Gateway: 010.000.001.002


    But see? It hangs on "Access Point >>>> Internet" for about 10-14 seconds, with the INTERNET thing in the upper-left corner LIT UP, enabled, blue, with 3 bars (unlike it being "enabled", being all grey.)

    So your router's IP is 10.0.1.2? That's a bit odd, but oh well. Have fun, just make sure to set your 3DS's IP to something that's not taken. Though, if you're setting it to something in the DHCP client range, something else might randomly take it when the tables reset. You might want to look into just setting up everything with a Static IP, just leaving a small range for guests and whatnot.

    I've tried. When I try anything but the IP, it gives me just an error and won't even get to "this system" >>> "Access Point"...

    Either get into your router's Web UI and see what's going on or reset it. Most information you need about that you can just google online for. If SSID, Encryption, IP, Subnet, Gateway, DNS, and MTU are set properly on the 3DS then it's your router you're going to have to tackle.

    Depends on your router's model and brand, go look it up. Google is a very flexible and you should be able to pull up the default login information for every router.

    If the default login information doesn't work and you don't have the new login information, then you'll have to reset it if you want into it.

    that's great. Will resetting it make everything better?

    Depends on how it was setup before. If there's any settings you needed before, you might have to re-enable them or adjust them as needed. It'll restore it to its factory defaults, like when you first bought it.
