I'm new and this is the best place I could locate to ask this question, I know there are probably 1000s of threads like this, but I need help and my situation my be unique. This also doubles up for the Wii as well as the DS since it's online Wi-fi play.
Earlier I received a Nintendo W-ifi USB Connector and setting it up so far has been straightforward. However, I have instaled the program on the disc and have the Nintendo Wi-Fi icon in the bottom right hand corner of my screen. I connect up on my Mario Kart DS, I click the 'Connect to Nintendo USB Connector' icon on Mario Kart and it gives me the message about installing the software (which as mentioned, I have). I click okay and and soon enough it finds a connection. But at what seems like the last hurdle, where it initiates a connection test, does it then fail me. It starts off with a low, red connection, then quickly moves into a high green connection for a while (the bottom-right icon SAYS I'm connected when I click on it, with my name: Beau appearing and the running blue man) but then it turns red and disconnects me (with my man standing still again). I then get the error code: 52003 message and told to check the Wi-Fi website.
I have gone to the website, and checked as much of what I can and understand as possible and everything seems to be absolutely fine. Especially since for a while it actually says '1 or more users are connected' and has my little blue man icon running, but it then cuts out near the end of the test it seems. I really don't know what to do and would like someone to explain what hasn't already been suggested. I really have longed for my online access for Mario Kart DS, Wii online and the much awaited Pokémon Pearl! One thing that could have made a difference is I did play it online with my Friend on his Wireless Router. But the Wii has the same issue, but with less writing, it tries the connection test, stumbles around for ages and eventually says there's a problem.
I would really appreciate the help, especially if it came quickly. Thanks in anticipation for any useful help,
P.S. I am really sorry if this is in the wrong place, I know it's annoying when 'noobs' post welcome threads in Gamecube sections and such, but I need help and have tried everything I can. I have also e-mailed the Nintendo Europe help place and hope to get a response, but maybe one of you can shed some light knowing what it's like.
