Trouble Connecting

  • Make sure the wireless is enabled (the light will be yellow on your 3DS).
  • Restart your Nintendo 3DS and router.
  • Make sure there are no devices around that can cause interference.
  • Troubleshoot your wireless connection.
  • Move closer to your router.
  • You may need to change the network name and network password on your wireless network. Make sure the network name and password or less than 10 characters long with no special characters. You may even want to change the wireless security for testing purposes.
    Note: Changing these settings will cause all your other wireless devices to become disconnected, and they will have to be configured with the new settings.
