    So the method here is using Ad Hoc Networks but it doesnt seem to be available in Windows 10 which is the most used Windows Version at the moment

    http://www.howto-connect.com/create-wireless-ad-hoc-internet-connection-on-windows-10/
    But here's a sneaky way to get it to work

    And here's the deal, If someone reputable can actually test this on a WPA network and test if they can connect via WEP using it, I will make a nice simple GUI .exe for quickly creating a Ad Hoc Network :)

    Deal? ;)

    That's incorrect, Windows 7 is the most used Windows version as of today, and for a good reason. Windows 10 is just a terrible OS. The only reason why Win10 has so high usage is because Microft shoves it down peoples throats and literally forces them to upgrade from Win7/8.1 with malware like GWX.

    Small issue with this: you'll need to put your PC in DMZ mode (done via router); your DS wont be able to properly communicate otherwise.
    Oh, and a Raspberry Pi could do all this :P - if you have a spare old router either, flash it with OpenWRT if you can and run a WEP connection off there (plug a LAN cable from a port on router to port on the LAN interface (NOT A WAN PORT), then turn off DHCP for your LAN interface and set a static IP which has the gateway and DNS of your regular router. Then, go to advanced settings and make sure it looks like this:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Then just setup your WiFi connection

    Share internet with your android phone (there is a way and I cannot remember it) and then turn on hotspot.

    Nevermind, turns out that Win 7/8 don't allow hosting ad-hoc connection with WEP encryption either. I think it's possible however to do it with Connectify (I used to use connectify for that a while ago). Also, most of Android smartphones allow to tether mobile connection (3G/4G) through Wi-Fi without any encryption, so its usable for DS. Windows Phone, on the other hand... WPA2 or nothing. Thanks Microsoft.

    See, thats the irony, it shows that the device supports WEP in ad-hoc mode, but that doesn't mean you can actually set it to WEP using netsh command. You have to use 3rd party tools for that.

    That is incorrect and you hate stuff because you love bandwagons.
    Windows 10 is the most stable and fastest Windows ever to be put out, and I'm glad I updated for free and wasn't a fucking idiot.
