    Hello. I have an old 3ds xl and sometimes i use freeshop to download cia files but why i am always getting 394KB/s max download speed.
    I have a 20-89-Mbps internet connection i should get around 2MB/s second in freeshop at least.
    I use a class 4 16 gig sony sd card. Does the card slow down anything?

    The Wifi on the o3DS is shit. It usually caps at 700kbps for me.

    Keep in mind that @Aqib Ali mentioned the max, speeds will go up and down.

    The super slow speeds could be because of:

    1)Wifi card is a bit buggy and slow, but is to be expected. Ya know, nintendo cheap hardware and all

    2)the write speeds on o3ds is capped intentionally, and i doubt its the software doing this, imo i think its the sd reader/writer hardware, and as far as i know, there is currently no workaround.

    3)Could and most likeley a faulty sd card, try copying something big onto it from a pc. If it slumps after like a minuet or so, your sd is at fault.


    Plus, yours is a class 4 anyway, so it might be slow anyway

    Keep in mind that it is both downloading and installing at the same time and the 3DS is real slow at installing games.
