At last...



...A Nintendo DSi thread.

it may have something to do with your router, u may need to log into your router n maybe lower ur firewall, i had same problem with my Wii,all fine now tho, if you go to google and type something to the effect like cannot connect my nintendo dsi (and your router if u know it) it may show a few other people with same problem just work from there and try what they did

If you don't wish to read the content, just ignore it instead of posting your continual patronising of members.

Or - you could try to help. Ok, maybe not that.

You are like a turd that will just not flush.

In the Internet options, have you got "auto-obtain" on the last two options? One is DNS and I cannot remember the other. I have been online today with my DSi.
What error code is it giving you?

Has the saint got a DSi?

No. He does not.

I know the DS could connect with the BT Homehub V1.5 but not V2.0 -- are you a BT Broadband customer..?

connected no probs for me at 7am this morning-using bt homehub(white one)

1000 free points when you register at nintendo shop-grabbed paper plane which is highly addictive-only a few games available so far tho. web browser is a free download but Im finding it quite slow to load pages.

what does everyone think in general tho? the matte finish is quite cool but I think they really need to get some more stuff in the shop rapid-where are the region specific special dsi games? thought there would be one blockbuster dsi only game for launch day? unless they are claiming warioware snapped is it!

I personally think, its not very appealing to anyone over the age of 16. What does it offer that would get someone hooked on it.

DS Lite for me is superb. It can take TTDS and it great. Bought a DSi today and I am going to get rid of it tomorrow I think.

keep getting codes that trouble shooting tell me could not connect or could not find the IP address. I have put the WEP code in but still struggling.

Remember to put it back on...but remove the WEP from the router settings and try and connect the DSi without the WEP key.

My toilet is blocked with a turd that will just not flush.



Eat more fibre in your diet, it'll clear that right up.

Which flash cart are you getting for it?

All the "i" variants work, but if I were to get one (which I am not), I would get an Acekard 2i.

Why on earth would I want to sell the same DSi on here that I can quite easily take into CEX tomorrow and get £145 in cash in my hand?

If I deal on here I lose PayPal fees and postage. Where is the sense in that? My household has 4 DSi consoles following purchases today - 2 at Game following a DS Lite trade in and 2 at Gamestation. Not that I should have to explain that to you but I am as I am not on this site to profiteer. Since 2007 I have not sold anything on here.
