Hi there,
I have a wireless router and can connect to it using the Nintendo WFC and multiplay, thats all fine.
I don't have so much joy when it comes to trying the MSN homebrew and WIN2DS which whilst they see wireless networks outside of my home, they don't allow me to enter the SSID of my wireless so I can't connect to them.
What homebrew should I use to connect to shares on my home network that will let me load NDS roms as if they were on the micro sd card in my R4. Is this even possible with the available software?
Thanks in advance,
Steam

First if you have a new lite there was a problem with the older wifi library which most people used. Most stuff has been recompiled but there is a patcher (I have no link to hand though).

If you means streaming: for anything other than music and I think some video, not a chance.

Shares: as in OS based, not to my knowledge (DSlinux is probably your best bet here and it appears to have limited SSH, telnet and FTP).
There is limited FTP support (DSFTP is a server) and again DSLinux
DCC in the IRC app released a couple of days ago:

DSOrganize allows HTTP downloads these days.

SAMBA has now been ported to DSLinux and is to start showing up in new builds:

Just quickly SAMBA is a group of applications that allow files to be shared between windows and unix based stuff (e.g. linux).
Probably better description from the site:
