Yeah but the dsi does not support it for online games.

3DS connection work nearly perfectly with my game, it could be because I use WEP settings.

But I can connect to my wifi using the 3DS connections just fine no problems when i set it up when i got my 3DS on launch. and it connects right away when i get home. but if i try to do the DS setup i get not compatible...

well it doesnt work for me when i use the DS connection settings because my security is on wpa id have to lower it to nothing in order to use that you would have to do that for almost all DS games with black and white being the exception

however the thing is pokemon black and white when trying to play online will use your 3DS or DSI internet connection in the advance setup for those who dont know internet connection instead if you have a higher security which will work just fine

what i said probably didnt make sense or already does so maybe a bullet list might be easier

-DS games require you have no wpa settings to go through while setting up a connection that involves no password entering i think this however doesnt matter if you use the nintendo wfc dongle connected to a computer

-3DS games work with any kind of settings therefore it doesnt matter what security your using i think

  • pokemon black and white being the exception due to the DSi and 3DS exclusive features which is the only game known so far to accept higher security so if i understand this right your trying to play using the ds connection features instead of the 3DS one which allows for high security your going to have to go on your computer and lower wep2 to nothing in order for it work i think

i hope this helps because that all i can do for now :P

Ah ok that makes sense now ill pass on having no security at my home. I do to many things with my online store and alot of people are in my neighborhood that would probably steal my internet. I could set up another unprotected network and set bandwidth restrictions i guess but that would probably be more hassle than i'm willing to deal with.

There is a section in 3DS internet settings for setting up ds internet conectons. And you need to turn wireless on prior to opening the game when going on wireless with a ds game on a 3DS.
Those are the only questionable things I had encounterd, but then easily solved.

Thanks pixelman! :-)

Like I said above. Mine doesn't work either. I'm just glad I can now play my 3ds games over the internet.

@SkaterCasper
I think you said your home network is WEP2, which the DSi and 3DS wireless hardware support. However, there is also DS wireless hardware in the 3DS (and DSi) for backwards compatibility. The DS hardware only supports WEP (not the newer, more secure WEP2) and it may be possible that your home network doesn't support the original WEP any more (mine doesn't).

There may be another solution if you really want to sort it out. As someone suggested, you could turn WEP2 off on your access point, but as you rightly said, you don't want it to be insecure. Well, there's more than one way to skin a cat. You can probably set up MAC access control on your wireless network at home instead of WEP2 security.

This allows you to say "Only let the devices I list connect to this network". Each device has a unique long code (a MAC address) that looks something like this:12:34:56:78:9A:BC. You register these codes with your wireless network and then nothing else can connect to it. The only possible problem is that the data sent between the devices will not be encrypted and could be intercepted and read. I doubt this is likely to happen though.

I appreciate this might be a bit advanced for a lot of people, but if you are willing to give it a try, it should work. The hardest part is usually working out the MAC addresses for all your devices.

BTW, MAC has nothing to do with Apple, it stands for something like Media Access Code.

Have you tried setting-up Wi-Fi from the game directly?
