The 3DS doesn't support 802.11n?

#1olk3034Posted 7/24/2014 11:20:11 AM
Changed my router to that because the signal was too weak throughout the house on g/n, and now the 3DS won't connect to it at all

It detects it, shows the blue bars, sees the access point, then doesn't connect. It works on g/n though. WTF is there a fix?

There's no fix because it would require a physical hardware upgrade.

However, many n routers also let you run a second b/g/n network. So I have a n-only network I run my computers on and the mixed one for just my NDS. All works fine.

My router is on wireless N 300 mbps and it works unless it got some backwards compatibility built in automatically.

The Wii U won't connect to an N network either, so I just keep my router's wireless mode set to 802.11g/b/n so I don't have to deal with changing it. Check your router's settings and change its mode since most N routers have that option.

So you ask a question about a topic you know nothing about, then when someone responds in a way you don't expect you call them hilariously misinformed? I think you just outed yourself haha

some routers have 2 frequencies - 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz .... each can be set for the different protocols, b/g/n .
