    I'm aware that Nintendo DS cannot connect to anything other than open networks or WEP networks, but I don't really know how to set up an open network using a mobile hotspot. My iPhone requires a password for wifi and so does my Windows 10 PC, but knowing Windows I'm sure there's some way around that. Does anyone know what could work for making my Windows 10 PC an open hotspot for my DS to connect to?

    your phone probably has a mobile hotspot option. you need to set that up if you want to use your phone. it will have its own password and ssid (can be named). that's what you'll input, not your router's.

    I think I found the problem. I don't think the ds can use anything but wep, which is like having no security. my ds is recognizing wpa2 as wep, but inputting the password doesn't work.

    If you have access to a mac you can forward the connection from your iPhone to create an unsecured connection. Just look up internet forwarding. I don't use windows 10 so i'm not sure if it has the same kind of utility.
