    Im trying to play pokemon white 2 online using my flash card, my 3ds xl connects perfectly (ive downloaded demos etc.) and the flash card works great but when i try to play pokemon online with the flash card, it tells me i dont have a connection.
    I have already changed my router to wep, and turned the security off, but no dice, i was wondering if anyone could help? thanks

    While the DSi and 3DS themselves can connect to WPA and WPA2 security, original DS games and all flash carts cannot. WEP security, no security, or getting a DS wifi dongle for your PC.

    you need to set the DS WiFi settings in the DS Mode, you have only connected it in 3DS mode by the sounds of it

    needs to be WEP or No security on the WiFi when getting

    You must manually change the settings on your router. Chances are you do it by directing your web browser to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 and change the settings.
