    This was my original post:

    I have finally solved this! The way to get DS Hobro, and any other ds wifi app you can't get to connect to the wireless network to work, is this:

    You need to make sure that you wireless router is broadcasting the ip address, yes, this can be a security risk, so enable Mac Address filtering. This way, the DS can see your network. It has to do with the homebrew wireless library, I think, but if you are broadcasting your ssid, it works.

    Enjoy! and I hope I helped some of you guys out there.

    Ah, I could have told you that. Yeah, the homebrew library requires the SSID to be visible in order to work. That's actually the main reason I bought the Opera DS browser - it could connect to my school's wifi network while the homebrew web browsers couldn't.

    Any other questions?

    (It cost me a pretty penny too, as I bought it when I was in London on a band trip, before the US version was even announced. Dang currency conversions.)
