Error Code: 85020

A network communication error occurred during the matchmaking process.

What to do:

     

  • There appears to be a temporary issue with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Please try your game later.
  •  

  • If you have waited a few hours and are experiencing this error every time you try to connect, there could be a problem related to your firewall. For more information on firewalls and the Nintendo WFC, click here.
  •  

  • If this error occurs only once in awhile or if you are at a Hotspot location, it is likely due to congestion on the internet or a connection problem being experienced by you or the other player(s).

    To ensure the connection isn't dropping on your end, check the following:

    • Low battery power on the Nintendo DS (the light changes from green to red when battery power is low).
    • Signal strength from the access point is low. Move closer and try again.
    • Check for wireless interference. Devices such as cordless phones and microwave ovens should not be in use.
