    I've been seeking to fix my problems with wifi homebrew for the last 2 days or so, and have fortunately found an awesome fix!

    It is a patcher which fixes non-working wifi homebrew. i cannot vouch for its complete safety or compatibility but it has worked great for the 3 apps i have thrown at it just now (DSliveweather, IRCDS offhand, will post more test results soon)

    The patcher is made by nin187 and based of Rudolf's findings. Rudolf's blog here: (only in Japanese)
    http://blog.so-net.ne.jp/Rudolph/

    Where i originally discovered it, and a translation:
    http://www.1emulation.com/forums/index.php...ndpost&p=228195

    The patcher is linked in the comments of Rudolph's blog.
    Here is a direct link (long 0_0) for those who want it:

    http://ftp7.ohpy.com/opftp/index.php?contr...0HDbTgkp65PpA==

    i don't know how complete it is since nin187 makes a post below which is uninterpretable via auto translation [​IMG] which has a new link (Albeit broken).

    Since i don't know how many others have tried it and i have not done extensive testing try at your own risk!

    Also don't expect this to fix bad settings with routers or DS wifi firmware settings, this only fix the homebrew that wont work even if those settings are right (even though they might work with other people). of course make sure those are right first.

    Edit: heres an ongoing list of my homebrew that I have tested from my ez4. none of these worked prior to my patching (except IRCDS which was irregular)

    DSLiveWeather: works
    IRCDS: works
    Wifi Lib Test: works
    Wifi Ez4 Loader: works (havent figured out how to use yet)
    DSamp: works
    DiagnoSe: works
    SylphAmp: works
    Beup Live fixed version: works

    Unsure whether it works... (dunno whether anyone plays these games wifi anymore..?)
    Wifi Voice Chat Client
    Tetattds (i can't tell if i'm playing AI or another person)
    ExplosiveGas


    EDIT Oh, i just realised something POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS reading the translation;
    it's hard for me to understand the context of this and i have no clue as to whether the patcher ignores this patch or etc 0_0
    Please read the translation link i provided to make your own judgements.

    don't expect this to be a fix all, if you can't connect homebrew because of the wifimax, rather than a problem with the homebrew file, this patcher is useless for you anyway.

    i don't know anything about wifimax but i think i gather what you want to know from the other topic. in that case i doubt this will help you.

    This didn't fix my problems on a DS Lite running through the Nintendo Wireless USB connector (fixed to act as a access point)

    I had another solution, i bought a new DS lite black couple days ago, and none of my homebrews worked anymore (treasure of gaia for exemple) whereas they used to work properly with my other DS lite.

    The only thing you have to do is change channel on your wifi router (channel between 6 and 11) and everything should work fine. Didn't need to patch anything.

    Don't ask my why it works when you change the channel, i have no idea since i'm a noob, i just know it worked for other people as well who had problem with the newest DS lite.

    Nice! Thanks for the tip!

    I found another fix a while ago. My sister has the WiFi problem on her DS. She uses a M3 Lite. To use WiFi in homebrew she just starts a random game, soft resets, and it's fixed as long as she doesn't shut the DS off.

    It takes some time, but it works [​IMG] .

    ontario, eh
    I have seen this patcher before; its used to patch the newer ds lites as they use a diffrent setting when wifi is enabled. otherwaise a new ds lite will not run. my ds phat still won't connect... [​IMG]

    Ah, been looking for this. Works great for my sister's DS Lite.
    Changing channels on my router resets a few settings, this is a faster solution for me. [​IMG]
