my DSi has the same problem and same response I looked on Youtube and it said it was because of the wireless thing inside the ds and u have to take it out but I didn't watch the rest of the video because there was a problem with that. I have a Hello Kitty sticker/skin on it, and I can't take it off because I've had it on there for years

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/downloa... for the manual. Just in case you should want to follow what it says and look it up:) Did you do a recent update on it? Just asking because newer DSi firmware blocks out third-party devices like the Action Replay or flash carts. You have to check the Action Replay website to see if there's any firmware update for the AR to bypass. BTW are you using something like Acekard? http://www.dsihacker.com/acekard-2i.php So let us know how it is going and if you need further help. Give us all your info so that we can find a solution to this....Good Luck

So yep, you’ve updated your DSi to 1.4 and your Acekard 2i doen’t work. We can fix it. But be warned in the Highly, Highly, Highly Unlikely event of buggering up your Acekard 2i or the DS I will not be held responsible and proceed at own risk. If you do stuff it up I have One fix(from self experience).

1. Download this File, I did not create this file and I don’t know who did (Click Here) file from http://www.ndscardshop.co.uk/

2. Put these files on the Micro SD Card for your Acekard 2i.

3. If you have already updated your DSi to 1.4, your going to need an Original DS or a DS Lite and put the Acekard 2i in that, If you haven’t just put it in your DSi

4. If your using a Original DS or DS Lite, Go to Acekard 2i and browse to where you put the Files, your going to need to open the one entitled “ak2ifw_update_14_DSL.nds”, If your using a DSi open the Acekard 2i and browse to where you put the files, open the titled “ak2ifw_update_14_DSi.nds”

5. It will tell you to re-instert The Acekard 2i, so do that, It should tell you to press B then so do that, then it should ask you to press start so do it, now it will be changing how the DSi will recognize the Acekard 2i, Now DO NOT PRESS THE POWER BUTTON OR YOU WILL BRICK THE Acekard 2i. After it finishes it should tell you to power off the DS. Now Your Acekard 2i had been fixed! YAY!!

Holy Crap I’ve Bricked My Acekard 2i by pressing The Power Button while it tells you not to. What do I do?

(Here’s the Solution)

1. Your going to need a DS Lite or Original DS with any Flash Cart.

2. Put the Update file called “ak2ifw_update_14_DSL.nds” on The Flash Cart of any Sort.

3. Open the Update file you put on your Flash Cart.

4. When it Tell’s you to re-insert the Acekard 2i, take out the Flash Cart and insert the Bricked Acekard 2i(with update file)

5. Then Follow the Steps

6. Once it’s finished you’ve Un-Bricked The Acekard2i

I am pretty sure the Wifi board in your system, has either disconnected from the motherboard or is damaged and will not turn on.

This is very easy to check, just remove the back cover and the Wifi board is visible right away.

I have had this problem and have fixed it by replacing the wifi board, which is real easy, and there are instructions on this site.

Nintendo Handheld Repair

You should carefully remove the back and check to see if the wifi board is still attached. They usually only come loose if they fall or are banged around.

before replacing the card, try and push on the back of the DSi approx. where the wifi card is. If that doesn't work. open the DSi case then disconnect and re-seat the wifi card. That ended up working for me. I guess the connector was a little loose. The connector doesn't really have any kind of grab, it is just seated so the regular jostling that a portable game system goes through will eventually unseat it.

As a temporary fix....If you just want to be able to play your Ds games after receiving this error...Just power on the DS...then go to settings...then turn OFF the WiFi option. (The wifi light will go off) You won't be able to take full advantage of some of the other modes that rely on wifi on the Dsi but...you will be able to play your games again without opening up the back hardware of the device. -2F™

Definitively the main cause for this error is the wifi card:

- Reason 1: Wifi card is loose > You will need to put it back in place

- Reason 2: Wifi card is damage > Only way to fix it is to replace with a new one.

This issue is not related to R4 flash cards, firmware or updates.

Juan
