    So I did some research and to what I can see I haven't seen anyone else see this

    I was attempting to connect to the internet with WEP on the DS connection settings, when I wondered "I wonder if I can skip WEP"

    The answer is no, but it turns out typing any 5 letter word will "skip" the WEP entry (Thanks @sp3off)

    I'm not sure on how but it may be possible to use this in some way, so I created this thread to showcase any findings.

    So if I understood well, you found out that you can "bypass" the WEP key inclusion. This is verrry interesting, imagine that we could create a "hotspot" by only doing this.

    EDIT: Actually it accepts every 5-character thing you type, so, it's like I've broke your conclusion.

    Typing "qwert" and also "azert" worked.
