Why Won’t My Nintendo 3DS Connect To Wi-Fi?

Troubleshooting 3DS Or 2DS Network Connection Issues



Why isn’t my DS connecting to WiFi?

Check the hotspot password, which can be used to clear the current WiFi connection information, and enter it again. If you have access to a WiFi router, check your WiFi settings: your Nintendo 3DS only supports 2.4GHz networks with 802.11b / g modes.

Why can’t my 2ds connect to the Internet?

2DS / 3DS does not connect to 5 GHz networks. Check which version you have is 2.4, 5.0 or dual band. If you want to exclude some of the router settings, try turning your computer (desktop, laptop, phone, etc.) into a portable hotspot. Check your router’s wireless security settings to see if you can set it to AES or AES / TKIP.

Why is my Nintendo DS Not Reading Games?

Take advantage of the old console cartridge trick that has worked for me in the past. Often the problem is solved by rebooting and replacing the cartridge. Also try blowing into the cartridge slot. It could also be that your DS is just old.
