    You mean WPA, and unfortunately, no, none whatsoever as far as I know.

    I have WPA on my router as well but the way I get around it is to set up another access point inside the network and turn off SSID broadcasting.

    You need another piece of hardware for that, namely another access point.

    I don't really know the rationale behind leaving WPA out for DS though. Perhaps due to the limited processing power of the DS?

    You could get a Nintendo Wifi USB Connector.

    That's what I had to do.


    Won't work with homebrew, though.

    in my dorm, everything is secured with a WPA as well. i plan on taking my laptop there, so if i get a nintendo dongle and plug it in my laptop will i be able to get on wifi with my ds?
