    Is your DS/Lite flashed?

    You need to install FlashMe and be using a wireless access point and not the Wi-Fi USB Connector.

    Guide

    Note, you don't need a pass card. Just run the .nds off your flashcart.

    You do NOT need to flash for WiFi, where did you get that ridiculous idea 8BitWalugi?

    Anyway, do you have a DSi? If so, that is the reason for the problems. If not, I don't know whats wrong...Most WiFi homebrew work fine for me.

    Is the SSID of your Router hidden? If it is > "unhide" it (lol)
    If it's not > dunno [​IMG]

    What security is on your router? I don't think it should matter if it works in retail games though...

    The DSlite can only work with WEP anyways and if he already can use regular DS games on his wifi, then homebrew should work...(but apparently doesn't).

    Try a lot of wifi homebrew. Maybe the one you are trying to use is simply not using the correct settings, or something.

    1. Set encryption to WEP(possibly 128bits)
    2. Unhide SSID
    3. Stop MACaddr limitation
