so yeah



Nothing too new though, it had already been done before with DeSmuME.


Anyway, a couple things about this.


* It's the same old "emulated AP + libpcap" setup. You know what they say, why fix it if it ain't broke?

* No need to choose between separate "adhoc/infrastructure" modes like in DeSmuME. The emulated AP runs alongside the rest.

* So far melonDS's wifi stack seems to be robust. I was able to stay connected to the IRC server for one hour, and it didn't disconnect or anything.

* I was also able to connect to an altWFC server, but there was nobody online.

* You don't need to seek an obscure, unofficial wifi-enabled build.

* You need a network adapter that supports promsicuous mode and raw packet injection, and doesn't get in the way. Some adapters will overwrite the 'source MAC' field of outgoing packets, which will interfere with melonDS's thing.

Sweet Jesus, this is good! (This is Gippy, forgot password lol)

The biggest issue with the old implementation was that wireless connections to a router were unsupported without a huge workaround, such as using the Microsoft Loopback Driver. Will this be corrected in MelonDS?

I'd have to test it. I expect WinPCap to provide packets with Ethernet headers in all cases, but maybe in the case of wifi adapters it's providing 802.11 headers instead. I'd need a way to detect that and also to figure out how to make the 802.11 headers (it needs the access point's MAC address).

Hello, could you tell me exactly how and what one needs to do to be able to connect like that?

Will non-local wifi eventually work without relying on external software and become a transparent process, completely integrated into the code?

anyway, I think I found out why non-local wifi doesn't work on certain setups, mostly when a wifi connection is used.

promiscuous mode doesn't work.

which may require coding some bridge thing. dunno.
