The problem that needs fixing

Most of what was going wrong Sunday and Monday was fixable by liberal applications of sleep or food, but this situation persists:

Apparently the problems I have been having with the Nintendo WiFi Connection are worse than I thought. For the 2½ days, I have been mostly unable to connect - error code 51300, no compatible access point in range. I did get onto GTS for about 5 minutes this morning, but wet back to 51300 land when I tried to use the WiFi room. It started between trades, and I just lost the connection and was unable to establish it. I got a few 86420s before it finally decided not to let me even attempt to log on. I don't know what, if anything, I did to trigger this. My wife's DS also got 51300 when we tried to get her onto GTS, but all the other Internet-enabled devices in my home work fine, including a Wii which is not physically connected to the network and is presumably set up exactly the same as the DSs. I was able to trade via ad hoc WiFi today. We have Verizon DSL running through an AirPort (a router so old, nintendowifi.com doesn't acknowledge its existence). The computer it was configured on was running Mac OS 9 and is long gone, and the machine I am typing on is XP. If anyone can shed some light on this problem (or thinks they can, with more information), feel free to comment or email me at duelist -at- gmail -dot- com.

This is very poor timing, as I owe 5 people I met online trades, and wifipokeleague is scheduled to start on Monday. I do intend to get Pokémon Battle Revolution, and hopefully that will work for any battling that I want to do (do we know if PBR can battle against D/P yet?), but I may need to at least temporarily step down as the bug apprentice.

Hmm, we have an AirPort and no problems with Nintendo WiFi. But ours is an AirPort Extreme, so it's probably newer than yours.

Not sure what to do aside from go through and reconfigure your DS WiFi settings and see if that helps.
