I found a program called DS2Key v1.01 that's supposed to let me use my Wi-Fi connection to link up my DS and my laptop together. I'm supposed to be able to use my DS as a PC controller, useful for Visual Boy Advance, and a godsend for my Playstation emulator. (Honestly, there's so many buttons that it seems like I'm going to hurt myself at times!)|
However, the program comes with absolutely no directions on how to set it up. I found a set of directions online, but I'm still having trouble.
1: I downloaded a copy of Mario Kart DS so I could access the internet settings on my DS. While setting it up for my home Wi-Fi connection, the "Test Connection" function acts strangely. It'll show a perfect connection, and then drop the signal at the last second to show me an error message. However, my computer has no such problem connecting online. Is it possible that the DS is just having problems with the "Test Connection" function and I can still use the program?
2: A bit of a continuation on #1, actually. I ran the program anyways, and got to the screen where I put in the settings to help it find my laptop. I matched up the IP Address, Port number, and profile, but it still doesn't work. The set of directions I was consulting mentioned something about setting up a static IP Address, but since I had copy/pasted it into Notepad and closed the original window, I couldn't follow the link to find directions on how to do that. Could somebody explain it to me?
3: Tying together #1 and #2. Is the problem I'm having more likely a faulty DS internet connection, or the connection to the IP address on my computer? I REALLY want to be able to use my DS as a controller, and it would make all the hacks on here a lot more fun to play, so could somebody give me a hand? Thanks.
