  Bring your DS(i) games back online in 2018 and beyond!

DS, DSi Enhanced and DSi exclusive games and DSiWare can now use their online functionality again, meaning you can do online races in Mario Kart DS or receive Mystery Gifts in Pokémon, thanks to a security flaw in the way the DS connects to the internet. The way to get connected again is very simple: use a custom DNS server for your WiFi connection. This means that it doesn’t require any patching or other boring stuff, just change the DNS and you’re ready to play online! It also means that it works for all games! Do keep in mind though that this will not allow you to bypass the DS Phat and Lite being restricted to WEP and unsecured networks. Those using a DSi or 3DS can make use of the improved wireless capabilities of those consoles, but only in DSi Enhanced games (such as Pokémon Black and White). DS games can only ever connect to WEP or unsecured networks.

To go online with your old DS(i) games again, make sure you have a network they can connect to, then go to the Nintendo WFC settings, which can be accessed from any game with WiFi functionality. DSi or 3DS devices can be set up the same way. To also allow DSi (Enhanced) games and DSiWare access to the internet (with the bonus of WPA/WPA2 network connectivity), go to the DSi/3DS’s system settings and change the WiFi connections from there. In the 3DS’s case, look under ‘Nintendo DS connections’. In the settings for the network of your choosing, go to where it says ‘Auto-obtain DNS’ and change this to ‘No’, then set the Primary DNS to 178.62.43.212, and the Secondary DNS to 1.1.1.1. Save these settings, and start playing online again!

Thanks to shutterbug2000 and Kaeru Team for discovering this security flaw and hosting the servers.

This is really great. Will have to change my router configuration just to test it out.

Hoping it will revive the community!

Edit:

I tried it here and it just froze my game. Have you guys tried?

When did it freeze? Does it happen every time? I'd be surprised connecting to WiFi would freeze a game, but you never know.

I don't think the community will be revived, unfortunately, but at least enthusiasts can now play together again online. In fact, I probably won't use the online functionality a lot, but the fact that the option exists once again is really nice.
