    So, yeah, I've tried going online with Pokemon W2 and I just realized that my wireless internet is WPA. However, I'm using a 3DS and can connect to it outside of Pokemon W2. I'm currently using a Supercard DSTWO and have wiped the connections from the normal DS Wi-fi connection menu.

    Any way I can connect to my current connection? Or will I have to change it to WEP?

    Oh, and is WEP really that unsafe? I didn't have problems in the past when I had it.

    I forgot
    Because the DSTwo works in DS Mode only, you can only use WEP to play games online.

    Yeah, I thought so.

    Eh, I guess I'll have to change it then.

    It runs in DS mode only so I'm afraid that WPA isn't going to work.

    I switched to WEP for Wifi before and I've switched back to WEP again for Genesect/Dream World/Memory Link purposes. I'm working on the assumption that nobody's trying to hack into my router.

    Yeah, I've done it before as well, but that was back when I had my old DS Lite.

    I don't think anyone is going to bother hacking my internet, so I'll probably just keep it WEP.

    Technically you can use Nintendo's USB Ni-Fi adapter if you *really* don't want to change your router's settings or create a new AP entirely using one of the compatible sticks, but that's just going the extra mile in my opinion.
