I recently bought a blue 3DS. I've been trying to update. When I first got it I was visiting family, so when I got the "An error has occurred" message, I just figured their internet was slow. When I got home ( we have really fast internet ), I tested it out again. I got home 3 days ago and it's still not working. I tried to google the problem, but most of the answers were a month old and said nintendo was having site traffic problems or something, so I decided to post my own here. The farthest my 3DS has gotten with the error message is about 1/10 of the way. I have no idea what to do. Here is some information about my internet and 3DS:
I use airport utility, which is high speed internet for mac.
My 3DS does connect to the internet, it's just something that the update does.
I live in the united states.
Firewall is off! ( no bridge mode )
P.S I figured it may have something to do with so many updates at once. I've got the original version, there's been about 4 updates since then.If theres a way to do one update at a time i figured it might help.
Thanks for any responses,
I had already tried that ( and yes I tried it again ). My firewall is disabled and that last part about disconnecting the router and modem, I need my dads permission to do. This time it got absolutely nowhere ( blank bar )
Edit:I may ask my dad to help me with the router/modem thing later, but in the meantime, any other solutions?
well then i suggest getting your dad's permission to disconnect the router and modem. that should work, but if it doesn't you could always give nintendo a call. or look through their troubleshooting pages on their website.
