    So i have a TP-Link Wifi router configured at my flat and for safety reasons i have to use WPA security on it but this way,i can't connect to WFC via games such as MM Starforce 3 or Pokemon. In the system menu on my DSi i can connect to it via Advanced Internet Settings and i can go on the DSiware shop as well this way, but in the games,i can only access the old DS Internet menu and that way it can only work with WEP security and i don't wanna change the security every time i wanna play these on WFC. Is there a way to go around this or Acekard will never be able to do such things? [​IMG]

    No. It is utterly impossible for any current flashcard, minus the iEvo, to use DSi Mode. Either you have to downgrade to WEP, or you can't use it. Very few games, and only recent ones(Black/White is an example) can use WPA, and that's retail only

    I set up a second wireless access point to use just for the DS. MAC filtering, so I can leave it without regular security.

    Not a bad workaround if you have old networking stuff laying around.

    MAC spoofing is easy.

    People can still crack WPA if they wanna, you know...

    Just use a WEP and if you notice any strange activity or bandwith usage change it back.
