Last weekend, I discovered a problem with my Nintendo 3DS's wireless.
|Y U NO WORK 3DS WIRELESS??!|
Here were its sickly symptoms:
- I couldn't open the eShop, it would instead - freeze the whole console if I tried to close it
- The internet browser wasn't working
- Green wireless light was still flashing
- It could still pick up wireless network connection points
- StreetPass still works
I tried a few different methods to try and fix it. Re-entering my home network password, standing closer to the wireless router, turning the 3DS off an on, looking online for other solutions to fix the problem... nothing worked really. But I was convinced the wireless in the 3DS wasn't kaput. It was still green with life! The 3DS just wasn't connecting to the internet for some strange reason!
My boyfriend suggested that I ring up Nintendo Support. As I was about to, I thought, what if... I just reboot the wireless router? Five minutes later. Success! I couldn't believe this fixed the problem. I found it just bizarre that I needed to do this to make the 3DS wireless work again.
Oh technology, how you boggle my mind.
