    How many routers are on your network? If there're more than one, read the double NAT section of the tutorial.

    So today I was connected with kai because I did see the green bar on when I started kai, than it went away. Not to sure but this should work with my laptop or is my wifi getting in the way. After I lost connection I did try to use my Ethernet adapted but that didn’t work. It’s not an official Ethernet adapter but I know it works because I use it for lan play gui. The adapter I use is called plugable. The game I’m trying to play with kai is smash bros. Not to sure but I obviously got the ldn but I’m not sure where on my sd card should I be putting the ldn nor config file, right now it’s on the root of my sad card.

    I think I found out why it doesn’t work properly, based on the diagram I looked at on the tutorial, I might need to get another Ethernet adapter for this. I only have one and it’s connected to my laptop, although that works well for me the few times I used it for lan play, I guess it doesn’t work like for kai. I usually play handheld mode. I’m hoping I’m wrong and something else is the issue because it does say I’m reachable when I launch Xlink Kai.

    One cable is OK.
    Make sure your IP is manually set up.

    What exactly am I putting manually because I tried my own ip and I tried my lan play ip and I actually tried my own dns server using ipconfig and the one in the xlink tutorial. Seems I’m stuck using lan play to play online. I didn’t block xlink with my firewall because I am reachable and sometimes, can’t recall which ip but xlink will tell me wrong ip on the metric section.
    Do I have to change anything on my lan play settings, maybe I’m missing something. This is my lan play setting, I don’t really use it as a wired connection because I barely have access to that, so you can ignore that in the picture and I did not show what ip I use since I’m not to sure if more than one person could use the same ip.

    Xlink has own IP pool.
    Sorry but you have detailed manual at xlink and gbatemp.
    Use xlink provided calculator to calculate your manual IP address.

    Will this work for a banned switch?
