    I am thinking of buying a DSi and was wonderning about a few things.
    I know that the Dsi itself supports Wifi encription WPA-TKIP but that some older games dont.

    -Which games do work?
    -Would something like Mario Kart or Pokemon work?

    Thanks.

    Sadly, no. Currently, all DS games only work with WEP connections. I'm somewhat hoping new games will come to work with WPA connections as well as WEP ones, since it'd mean I could use my games online.

    Just switch your router to Wep. Is it really that hard?

    ^^^^ I cant realy edit it as it is my Dads router and WEP is a lot less secure. Also when you have 9 things configured to it ( never mind that 4 of them have 3 OS's), it becomes quite a long job to edit it.

    Thanks Wintrale, And One Last question does any internet homebrew ( is there any?) work with WPA-TKIP?

    It doesn't really matter since the DSi comes with a free web browser that supports WPA.

    I think what he meant was that if there were any homebrew games or apps that support WPA encryption, as far as I know there aren't any.

    DSi mode has to be unlocked for homebrew to use the DSi's WPA.
    No flash cart has unlocked DSi mode yet. [​IMG]
