    It's much less secure to use WEP. WEP can be easily cracked by trivially-acquired software. Why are you thinking of switching? What benefit is there?

    Given that this is in the NDS section i assume its so he can use the wifi on his NDS? NDS didn't have WPA2 compatibility did it?

    Most routers will allow you to set a secondary network, such as a "guest network" that is either unsecured or hidden. See if your router has that and if it does you can enable/disable it at will.

    However, aren't most Nintendo WFC things dead?

    That's why there are unofficial servers, like altwfc and wiimmfi
