  1. Recently I set up a Wi-Fi network in my flat so that everyone could use the internet. The router that I'm using is the DSL-G604T and it seems to be working fine, except for the fact that my flatmates pc can't see the access point, and neither can his Nintendo DS.

    Anybody got any suggestions?

    Did you enable SSID broadcasting on the router? Is the wireless enabled on the computer and Nintendo?

    As far as I know SSID broadcasting is enabled as the other pcs on the network can see the access point, although there's no specific options in the router config to check. Also the wireless is turned on for the Nintendo.

    I've had a problem with the exact same router. I could never get it to show up even when using a Dlink wireless card on another computer & tried with my DS too. I gave up on it & got a linksys instead. :/

    I've also tried firmware updates but they didn't fix anything.

    Well that's not helpful, lol. Or rather, it's semi helpful but not in the sense that gets me to a place where I'm able to fix the router. Anybody else got any suggestions?
