    Is there any way to use it with a wireless connection?

    I know it won't work directly, but can you bridge a connection to your wireless adapter's connection, and then connect to wifi? (I tried it bridging Hamachi with my wireless adapter, but it didn't work, but can someone recommend other programs to try this with?)

    My computer is too far from my router to use a wired connection.

    I don't think you can. Google doesn't bring much up...

    Bridging a disconnected Lan connection doesnt work either =/

    Im guessing if someone could program something that lets you set up a connection that reroutes packets to and from specific connections, you could make it work, but it doesn't seem very plausible.

    I've never had success myself and I've read that many people were able to get a wi-fi connection working.


    EDIT: According to this video, you need a wired connection to use Wi-fi on DeSmuMe

    Yeah, I know you need a wired connection. I was just wondering if there was a workaround to having to get a really really long lan cable.

    There are solutions around having your router and computer in differnent areas and still getting a wired connection.

    The thing is, I need a cheap solution. I'm not exactly working a full-time job.Stuff like that is very expensive to me.

    The firmware dumper posted above dumps into a 128kb file. Desmume seems to use 256kb firmware files (Those include wifi data). I need something to dump the wifi data also. (So i can swap saves between pc and ds any time) *Edit* Not above, in my other thread. I hate having multiple tabs open and confusing them

    This is what I used to get the firmware from my DS to use with DeSmuME.

    DSBF only dumps the firmware for me though, it seems to leave the other 128kb out, and it doesn't have my wifi data and stuff , so I have to reset my FC when i swap between PC and DS. I want to avoid that. .-.

    Am i just doing something wrong? (im trying to dump the ds firmware from a 3ds btw)

    The 3DS might be the problem then.

    ah ok. I guess I just need to wait for 3ds firmware dumping to be do-able.
