I have a question about why both my pokemon x game and pokemon y game will no longer allow me to connect to my router (for both the wonder gift torchic and for GTS), but I am not sure if can apply to problems with routers, or with handhelds, because it seems to mostly be about actual bugs with a game itself, usually on a computer. I can't ask it on super user either, because they have no 3DS tag and I doubt they would appreciate questions that do not apply to computers themselves. Can I ask tech issue questions about a 3DS and a router here, even though it does not relate directly to the game?

  • If it helps, I have totally asked questions like this, and gotten good help here! :)

Yes you may. Connecting a gaming device to a network falls under Game-specific hardware and utilities. As you've pointed out, the people at SuperUser may not know what settings to check on a 3DS, while people here will.

The technical-issues tag is not required. All the other questions we have regarding gaming devices and routers are simply tagged with the device in question.

    So it should just be tagged 3ds networking?

  • Sounds like a good place to start.

  • Well, the question's up and I haven't been smitten by dozens of angry stackers, so I guess I have you to thank for that :)

    @TheUgly - We're never angry, just efficient :). Don't be afraid of tagging things - you seem to have a pretty good grasp already, and if someone sees an issue, they'll retag it for you.
