This Christmas I got a new DSi XL with Pokemon Black 2 and some others. Whenever I try to connect to the Internet, it's there for about five minutes, and then I lose my connection. It's really aggravating. I've tried to find out what's wrong, but I never get the answer I'm looking for.

What is the model of your dsicl modem?? Did you go through the configuration when setting it up for the first time so that you could connect with your ISP provider?

Get into your modem/router settings. Google the IP address default for your brand. It will bring you to the login page for that model- there's also a default login/password, again Google for it.

Once in, double-check your location & time zone/time is correct. Next, find where the channel is set to "auto" (usually) & set it to any number- doesn't matter atm, we're just trying to see if you're getting interference from something on the current channel.

Lastly, many routers allow you to "hold" a particular LAN IP address. I do this for my wireless printer- so that if it goes off for a while (no one using) & the modem resets, etc...it doesn't assign a different IP to the printer. That just causes grief when you have a bunch of people who suddenly can no longer connect to the printer (& are usually late for school/uni & are running out the door!). Assign a static IP on your LAN for your DSi XL.

Sooo yeah- those are my most common walls I've hit & how I fixed them- hope it helps!
