    Hi Forum,

    As newbie into DS Lite WiFi, I am sure that there must be some answer found to this issue.

    I am not computer nor networking newbie, as I work professionally with both in enterprise-class networks.

    I am having the issue with the "Rudolph" WiFi ROM-Backup tool v0.31d, which is the latest IMO.
    I run EZ-Flash V, ver 1.65, and have also tied v1.63, as I own two NDS-lite's
    I run wideopen Hotspot-like network on Cisco AP1130, with no WEP, casted SSID and 802.11B only setting, fixed on Ch-8, which is free in my "hood".

    1st problem is that the tool can not read/locate the INI file with the settings.
    As a workaround I have setup my local network, with FTP on, anonymous login.

    2ns problem is that the DHCP client smoehow does not obtain IP from DHCP server.
    As a workaround I have setup static IP, which then works.

    So finally I have WiFi access to FTP and the tool connects to FTP just fine.
    I press R twice to change to ROM Backup, and the B for new file, then A to start.
    I get the green/red progess bar and it starts to run hte backup.

    Everything is honkydory, until 10 min. after, when the FTP transfer stops. (This is then 3rd problem!)
    The DS Lite stops replying to ICMP ping aswell.
    The WiFi simply stops ?!

    I have AC-power source on.
    I have tried with both my NDS Lite's, a white and a silver version.

    The Stop corresponds to app. 12mb transfered ROM, very slow progresss in Rudolphs tool i must say.
    If the speed were faster It would complete within 10 min.

    I have tested WiFi with the wifi_lib_test.nds version and everthing is ok in here.
    Nice tool btw ! I am impressed !

    So what can be done ?
    How else can I backup ROMs, with me having to purchase addition gear ?

    I hope somebody replies in here, as no other seems to be able to answer the questions ...

    After alot of search and reading I decided to set WiFi on Channel-10 and restrict conenction speeds to 1 and 2 mbit only.
    Then it worked !
    And I have backed up all of my cart's to ROM-files now.
    Conclusion: Nintendo DS Lite WiFi client does not compute...

    I still have problem with the INI file, that are unreadable/findable ...
