    Hi guys. So I have been having a problem. I have a 3ds, and a dstwo flashcart, and loaded up my pokemon black rom. Whenever I go to the wifi settings on the game, I don't get any hotspots. I am aware that the game runs in dsmode, and doesn't support WPA when using a flashcart. The problem is my hotspot I made is open, and it won't even detect it. I even connected it with my 3ds, and it shows and is open. But not in the flashcart settings. Am I doing something wrong?

    Try changing your WPA encryption to WEP. I have a dstwo ands 3DSXL as well as a DSiXL and wifi works perfectly fine with both and the dstwo card.
    Hope this helps :)

    The DSTWO will only run games in DS mode, it can't run them in DSi mode. A game has to run in DSi mode inorder to take advantage of the DSi + DSi XL/LL's extra ram, cpu and WPA encrypted networks. Fortunately DSi mode enhanced games will still run in DS mode, which is why Pokemon White and Black 2 will run on DS Phats and Lites. What is happening when your run a White 2 or Black 2 rom on your flash card is the game thinks it is running on a DS phat or DS lite; which is why you can't connect to WPA encrypted networks.

    *EDIT ---
    somehow I missed that you mentioned this >_< try connect to another network to test if it is just yours.

    Yeah 3ds has a seperate wifi system for normal DS games because nintendo is weird a lot.

    Either way pokemon black and black white 2 work with wep wifi using the dstwo . Just change to wep encryption :)

    instead protecting with wep (which is quite pointless in my area since there are lot's of people easily hack in) protect your network with MAC Address filter
    with no encryption

    at least you won't have any problem with other device regarding compability (there are few phones which won't connect in WEP mode)
