I just got my new nintendo 3ds xl for Christmas this year and it connected to the wifi fine and was working perfectly for a couple of weeks. Then I went to use youtube one night and it would not connect. It said that it was connected to internet but whenever i tried to play an online game or watch a video It would not allow me to do so. Also it would not give me the same error code every time...what is wrong?

@Silversword107 Try the following:

  • Try surfing the web using the browser - does that work?
  • Just keep trying - sometimes network issues can crop up and then pass within a few hours
  • Reset the internet connection settings on the 3DS and start afresh.
  • Try getting online via another wifi network somewhere else

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

@Silversword107 If you were able to use the browser then that suggests that there's nothing you can do about it. Either it was an issue with the game servers, or maybe you've got a 'used' 3DS that's been banned...?

The browser only worked sometimes because the internet would turn off and on while using it and the ds was brand new

Definitely worth testing it using someone else's wifi network then.
