Where is the guide for the 2DS Zelda version? I just opened mine up, and there IS NOT a wifi module card anywhere to be seen?! Did they move it UNDER the motherboard? I can not find any guides to the green and brown Zelda 2DS. Mine won’t update or connect to anything now.

It is the same. If you cannot see a Wi-Fi card, there probably is no Wi-Fi card.
