    I know that you can update your AceKard/ CheatDB through wi-fi...

    But every time I try it says: Could not connect, check WFC setting.


    But my wi-fi works perfectly, and can go online in roms and can even browse the internet.

    Why does it not work?

    Make sure SSID broadcasting is enabled. Games don't need it enabled, but the AKAIO WiFi updater does.

    In your start/globe menu, go to the "run" command. If you're on vista/7, you'd use the little white box near the bottom. Type in "CMD" and press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

    In the black box that comes up, type "ipconfig" and press enter. It'll list a series of four numbers as your "default gateway". Write those down. Go open any web browser, and enter the four numbers (like 192.168.x.x) into the address bar, and press enter.

    A login box should come up. The username should be "admin" or blank, and the password can be anything from "admin" to "administrator" "pass" to "password" or "password1", or something else if you've set it differently. Ask whoever set up the router what the password to get into it is, or check this page.

    Then you'll be able to see what sort of wireless security settings you have set up. Make sure that SSID broadcasting is ON.

    I had a similar problem... no matter what I did, I couldn't connect via WiFi, but ONLY in AKAIO.

    Turns out that on the DS WiFi config, my Primary DNS was invalid and AKAIO wasn't switching to the Secondary (which worked).
    The reason I had an invalid primary DNS (my computers IP, not my router) was for the SendPKMN app that I helped a friend set up.

    I'm having a similar problem. I get a could not connect message when I try to wifi update. I checked and my SSID broadcasting is set to "Enabled". I know wifi does work, and my primary DNS is valid and working. Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

    I tried updating on my DSLite instead of my DSi and it worked just fine. I looked and I have my DSi set to static ip, but it works otherwise so I'm not worried. Thanks for the help [​IMG]
