im not sure but i think the pokemon games supported the higher security functions like the wpa n all that so why not try setting it up normally on your 3DS

i hope this helps if not maybe you could explain the different setup compared between the 2 systems once more as i forgot about it on my DSI

Yeah i went to the site it gave me and couldn't find a good answer or guide and since this is my first hand-held system since an original B&W Gameboy, i figure id ask here since there are many more DS & 3DS inclined people than me. Good luck to you if i find anything to advance past this problem i'll post it in here.

Modern access points tend to have better security than the original DS. See if you can choose a different security setting on the wireless access point.

My game connects to WiFi Via trade and battle but it tells me I still need to configure on Game Sync.(Which anyway, I have not been successful with using it in the first place)

Edit: I found out the Game Sync is not available do to the earthquake in Japan...That makes a lot of sense.

But it should be noted that while Pokemon Black is for DS it also has special features for the DSi, including the camera on the X-Transceiver, and WPA connectivity.

Yeah but no ds games are compatable with your set up. I have the same problem you have. Can play online with any ds game but the 3ds has better online.
