Tetris DS Nintendo Wifi Connection Edit

This is primarily a technical document describing the servers that the Nintendo DS connects to to perform Nintendo Wifi. It would appear that at login, Tetris DS reports what it believes to be its rank to Nintendo. This also occurs every time you switch opponents. This process is done via a handshake between the DS and Gamespy. This is also what allows the wonderful device known as action replay to be so nasty to the highscore board.


Sidenote: Many of the IP's listed below are also used by the Wii gaming system (not just the DS).

Also found:
