    Hi , first time poster.

    This might be a dumb question but i am confused and have to ask.

    I have the R4 and want to go online. What do i need?
    Is the ez flash 3in 1 all i need?
    Is the passcard needed?
    Any patches .
    Is there a guide?
    Also is internet connection fast enough to be practical? thanks.

    I'm confused by nearly all your questions. By "Online" do you mean web browsing or playing people online?

    Are you a native speaker of English? Or just confused...?

    1. Either an Nintendo Wifi USB Connector or a wireless router
    2. No
    3. No
    4. Don't think so
    5. Perhaps but i don't know about one its pretty easy though
    6. Yes Wifi on the DS is pretty good but the Opera Browser is very slow

    If you want to go on the internet using the Opera Browser, you'll need a ram expansion.

    Thanks for checking my post.

    By going Online I mean web browsing.
    I saw the 3in 1 but wasent sure what else i might need, i don't want gba games or to play others online.

    Practical -meaning am i going to kill my self waiting for a web page to load or is it bearable ,perhaps similar to dial up speeds.

    I know these are big words but try to keep up Artic flame, thanks for nothing

    1. Learn to spell. US English is fine, but I'm sure Arctic still has a "C" in it. I help people whom I can understand. In fact, why even bother being patronizing. [​IMG]

    2. For Web browsing, all you need is the 3 in 1 expansion pack, or the Ewin expansion pack. I recommend the 3 in 1. You'll need Rudolph's 3in1 ExpPack tool ( http://blog.so-net.ne.jp/Rudolph/ ) However, the homebrew program DSOrganise has a pretty good built in browser.

    3. It's only just about bearable speed. Especially if you're browsing an image-heavy page

    Opera DS is bundled with a RAM expansion which sits in the GBA slot of the DS.

    Yeah when i read his post i couldnt understand what he meant either. Good that someone was able to decipher his cryptic use of words. Honestly he left his "online" question so vague i immediately began thinking he wanted to play GBA roms, with multiplayer modes, online. Either that or I thought he was talking about simply downloading games. Glad its cleared up though. Also, when you use the words "dumb" and "confused" to describe something your about to say, I would expect people to be at least a little sarcastic considering you already opened yourself up for admittedly more than what anyone gave you.

    OK, he apologized, move on now and no hard feelings...

    You may as well look into all the functions of the 3in1 if you're planning to actually get it, head to the unofficial EZ-Flash forums for more info: http://ezflash.sosuke.com/forum-16.html (read the stickies)

    Of course, you can ignore everything not pertaining to the 3in1.

    1. You learn to spell (sonicslasher)

    2. You buy virtually any slot 2 card with extra RAM

    3a. If it's a 3in1 cart (Ewin/EZFlash) then get the relevant tools from rudolph's blog or Ewin's site. Skip 3b.

    3b. Search google for "Opera RAM expansion patch (insert cart you just bought here)"

    You don't even need the Opera browser, DSHobro the homebrew browser is so much better in my opinion.

    No, but you need a computer at home.
