I've never visited anyone's town before though I've tried a couple of times. Both times I get that stupid error. I can see the "friend's" town and after the guard submits an iquiry, it says my wifi was disconnected and there was a communication error.

I've searched around, but can't find anything on this. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks!

Have you gone to this link?

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/results.jsp?error_code=86420&system=Wii&locale=en_US

where it says: Occurs when looking for a match (all games)
replace with Occurs when trying to connect to another town

It's a setting on your router likely though.. I had to fiddle with my settings like crazy and My DS still won't connect

One of you has a cr@ppy internet connection. I've gotten this error message a few times, and it's always someone with slow DSL or satellite internet on the other end.

Majority of times I get this code. But, people can always come to my town. In order for me to go out, I have to try it like around 10x, regardless in the end I still manage to visit towns =}. Just try.

I just checked all of my settings on both the Wii and the Router. All seems to be in order. I have DSL so I have a pretty quick connection. Maybe it is on the other end...

Just out of curiosity, what is the prefered connection speed to play the game comfortably?

It's probably that wii connect 24 thing...or maybe just go to your internet settings in the wii and re enter your password and stuff.
