Actually, it depends.
If your Wi-Fi is WPA (which the 3DS supports but the DS doesn't), then DS games won't be able to play online with your DS games.
However, if your using a connection type the DS CAN support, then you're good to go. ;)
Hope I helped.
But doesn't the DSi support WPA? Checking now...yup it does, WPA and WPA2, and all variations of it. And I can go online with my Acekard 2i just fine. So wouldn't the game just leech off of the systems Wi-Fi settings and go with what ever the system itself can get?
So to re-phrase TheTowR's answer: It does not matter, so long as you configure the 3DS to connect to a 3DS supported network, you are gravy, either in DS/DSi/or 3DS mode... Then again, I may be wrong in saying this as well, so take this statement with a grain of salt
The DSi does support WPA, but only a few DSi enhanced games like Pokemon Black/White. If you play Pokemon B/W with a DSi/3DS, you can use WPA. If you play Pokeom B/W with a DS/DSlite, your only choice is WEP.
i thought some games required WPA
DS games do not support WPA/2, and cannot because the wireless is contained in their ARM7 binary, which only has support for WEP. While many ARM7 binaries are "universal", there are some that are not, so it's not safe for Nintendo to replace their function.
the best way to let everything talk nice to your router (because my laptops woldent connect on wep) use mac addres filtering (if your router supportes it it will most likely support it) tur off all secerty and turn on mac filtering its the best way (and fastest) way to secure your network
Basically, if it worked on a DS, it's gonna work on a 3DS.
Wrong Wrong Wrong Sorry but TheTwoR's is not right
WPA and WEP is a security option in router settings so it's not important with gaming on DS,DSi,3DS.
There is no WEP/WPA requierment to play with any games.
My freind's 3DS works great with my DSi (DSlite too) and We've played GTA CW (MarioKart) so there is no problem to connect old and nu technology.
The only problem was that We have got only 2 oryginals of GTA and MatoiKart and DS lite player has Acekard with slow 2'nd class card and connecion was interrupted. With 4'th calss works.
Just to clarify, this is how it is. DS games are obviously in DS mode and DS mode only suports WEP, so if you load a DS game on a 3DS your wifi will have to be set up to a connection with a WEP key or no key at all. DSi games and 3DS games support WAP and such. They support it because they run in DSi/3DS mode which uses WAP. Basically DS games aren't made to support anything besides WEP, while DSi and 3DS support others.
"tur off all secerty and turn on mac filtering its the best way (and fastest) way to secure your network"
MAC address filtering is easily circumvented. It's not real security, it only makes a hackers job a little bit more annoying cause they have to take the place of an already connected client. In short, if you've only got MAC address filtering on your wireless router for security your router can be broken into as soon as you use it. (Even more easily then WEP.)
WEP is supposed to fully secure your router, but it is unable to. Since it's release, hackers have found ways to decrease the time needed to crack WEP to a matter of minutes, giving the hacker the WEP password and access to your wifi.
With Spoofmac can i ''spoof'' my Mac adress.
And i can get the Mac adress with acces to the network with some tools.
