    (Sorry for my bad english)
    Hello, having a DSi (broken but I'll fix it) and a DS, I want to use the Internet with my games and homebrew (I have a r4i gold 3ds). The problem is that my games only support WEP and my box is in WPA and I don't want to switch to WEP because it is less secure, I just want to use it from time to time with my DS. Do you have a free software to use my PC (Windows 10) as a WEP access point or other solutions? (My PC can create an access point but does not offer me WEP) I have already searched on Google but I did not get a very precise answer.
    Thank you in advance

    The best I can think of ATM is using your smartphone's tethering function.

    I don't have much data in my package because I don't use it. That's why I'm looking for another solution :)

    Does your PC has a wifi card and rj45 port?

    Well then.....search Software for Windows that turns Your Wifi in an open AccessPoint (or use linux) and attach a network cable for internet.

    Edit: A Cable connection is optional.

    I see.....seems every windows software uses windows api, which means only wpa is possible.

    Well then....linux is your wa to go.

    Edit: Or buy a accesspoint for ~20Euro and connect it to your network.

    I would like to find a usb key that does the same as the Nintendo Wifi USB Connector but with Windows 10 and cheaper it. Possible or not?

    Best bet is maybe a 3ds mod that can change the use of wep to wpa aes or something, i been asking for months but nothing yet. So i guess you would just need alternatives.

    Your best bet is to bridge a WiFi dongle on a computer that already has wifi, that seems to work best for your situation. You can find tutorials online as well


    Alternatively you can run a virtual machine for xp and use the nintendo dongle.
    And I've also heard somewhere that you can get it to work with linux

    You could set up a guest network on your router as well

    But The problem with that is that many guest networks require you to accept "terms and conditions" when you connect. The bad part? The og ds DOES NOT have a built in web browser to do so. Yes, I know the of ds/ds lite had a separate browser that could be purchased. But I'm not shure if it would work. And yes the dsi and 3ds have browsers as well And they work on WPA, yes while this is correct these browsers would be useless as og ds games use completely different set connection settings than the dsi/3ds(wich use the same) if you are playing dsi ware /dsi game or a dsi enhanced title (such as pokemon black/white/2 you could use your normal router, as the dsi has capability to connect to WPA and sertan games were programmed to tale advantage of it.
    NOTE you must be playing on a dsi/xl or a 3ds/xl/2ds/New 3ds/xl for this to work because again the of ds did not have this function.

    So if you are playing a og ds (non dsi enhanced) then maybe use the purchaceable browser. If that works then you would follow these steps

    1. Go to th wifi settings in the browser

    2. Wipe all connection settings

    3. Create a New connection with the guest network, test it, then exit back to the browser

    4. Open a New page and see if the sign in page opens, if not then your adventure ends here and this won't work

    5. If it worked, then agree and connect

    6. Test it by googling something

    7.If it is still working then pat yourself on the back because you are almost done!

    8. Exit the game and such (we don't want to just turn it off and corrupt the connection data)

    9. Okay now this is a BIG MAYBE but turn off your ds, and insert your action replay and game/patched Rom (with flashcard) and hope that it works

    10. Go set up the wifi again
    (DO NOT WIPE IT)

    11. Enter the server stuff for whatever you are using.( wiimmfc, altwifi, ext)

    12. Attempt to connect to the game servers

    13. Profit?



    Okay now if you are wondering what I'm talking about then listen closely

    Think of the "ip address" as a name on a guess list and the encryption as the bouncer looking for phonies

    So as long as you make a reservation by agreeing you should be fine as long as the following don't happen.,

    1. Change your ip/"name"
    (NOTE your ip address will most likely change at some point in the future, this is normal and done for security reasons. If this happens, just use the browser to accept the terms /"reserve a spot"

    2. Some guest networks only let you on for a set amount of time, this can usually be changed in the router settings though.

    If not, then enjoy your 30 mins of mario kart!

    The way the guest encryption works is pretty simple, first it redirects your hompage to be an unlisted page where the have their rules and such.

    Then by agreeing your current ip address has the okay to pass through security and use normal wifi
    (Unless things are blocked by an admin)

    So when you try to connect in the other game it sees your ip as "safe" and allows it to pass no problem.

    So yeah congrats if It worked, and sorry for wasting your time if it didn't.


    Also if the game switch didn't work you still can technically connect to the server with just the browser by
    Making an AR code or patching the Rom for a flashcart, then enter the addresses and stuff in the settings,

    And if that worked then now here is where things get...
    Funny? You can connect to the custom server now,

    But only sorta, as you won't be able to play the game

    Not shure if that part was much use though

    Didn't the "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection" online component for all DS and Wii games get shut down a few years ago?
