    How do you play pokeman white over the internet?

    I see a 'Nintendo WiFi connection' setup, but it doesn't seem to find my router..

    Is this something you set up before starting the game?

    1. Does your router use WPA or WEP encryption?
    2. Are you using a DS, DS Lite, or DSi (xl)?

    You may want to check if your game is fake, because I never heard of "Pokeman White"

    This is just a regular DS Lite and Supercard DSTwo..

    My router uses WPA/WPA2..

    sorry, should have typed "pokemon" (although just to annoy the kids, I call it "pokeyman")..

    Are we missing anything from not being able to get online?

    Yes. There's a "Dream World" feature that allows you to get Pokemon from any generation without having to use the Pal Park. In addition, the Pokemon you acquire may have special abilities that are only available if you attain these Pokemon in the Dream World.

    You are also missing out on the Global Trading System, trading with far away friends, battling with far away friends, and some Battle Train thingy that I have no idea about due to never using it.

    Also, if there are any wifi events to get certain gift/event Pokémon, you'd miss out on that too.

    You could temporarily change to WEP when you want to use wifi with the game... but WEP can be cracked by people that know about it.

    Someone may be able to obtain your WEP key in less than three minutes, but since he'd be reverting it back to WPA, the person wouldn't be able to use the WEP key anymore.

    Not to mention his/her neighbors would have to scan for an AP right when he's on WEP mode.
    (The neighbors probably noticed it was on WPA/WPA2 and wouldn't notice it being changed to WEP.)
