I was wondering if the 3DS can play Wifi games with advanced setup. I know that DSi has advanced setup but it won't work for actual games, just things like DSi shop and Flipnote studio. What I'm saying is can I play things like Street fighter 4 online with advanced setup?

DSi does, it only tells you you need advanced setup if its certain wifi settings.

I'm not familiar with "Advanced Setup," but I'm assuming it allows the DSi to connect to a WPA protected internet connection, which the original DS coouldn't do. If that's the case, then yes, you can connect using "Advanced Setup" because the 3DS supports WPA protected internet connections.

If we talk and have fun here on NL, feel free to add me!! (Just let me know so I can accept)

the 3DS has no problems playing 3DS games online — what you're thinking of is having a DSi or 3DS, setting up a secured internet connection (instead of a WEP connection, like DS games require), and then attempting to play a DS title via WFC. That's not the case when playing a 3DS game, though, as it can utilize any connection the 3DS can access for WFC play (the DS could only access a WEP connection, thus the game WFC problem on DSi and 3DS). :3

Either way, glad to see you've come to a decision. :3
