So I recently bought a second hand Nintendo Wifi USB connector in order to use Wiimmfi on my DS.

I have installed the drivers and the tools and disabled the firewalls, the registration software grants the DS access and when testing the connection, the DS shows full bars for a while, before the connection drops and shows error code 52103.

I am using a virtual machine running Windows XP, would anyone be able to help?

From the Error Code Guide Sticky:
"Are you using an anti-virus or firewall security program (such as Norton, Symantec, Zone Alarm, etc.)? If so, read the following.
Check for an option to "add" the registration tool to it's list of allowed applications. Test the connection after adding the registration tool.
Disable the personal firewall portion of the software. Test the connection.
Disable the entire security program, and test the connection."
I haven't seen Nintendo's Wi-Fi dongles in a long time, but a firewall is most likely the issue in this case. (be it the VM you're running from or your router)

Ah I see, yeah I disabled the firewalls on my VM after googling the error code, and I don't have any additional security that I have gone out of my way to install on the VM, so it may well be router side. After restarting the VM, the connection test lasted for much longer, but it still dropped in the end
