    Is the Nintendo 3DS able to connect to routers that have WPA/WPA2 security on them or does it have to be WEP? Also, if the 3DS does connect to WPA/WPA2, do the games work with it?

    3DS can connect to all the router securities.
    WPA,WPA2,WEP etc.
    And ofc it works

    Ah excellent, thank you very much for the answer, and I'm sorry if that was a stupid question.

    There are no stupid questions, just stupid answers.

    GamerzHell9137 is 100% right, with the exception of a flashcart. You can't play 3ds games on flashcarts, so they are all made to run in "dsmode". Dsmode only supports open connections, and wep. It does not support the modern WPA/WPA2 encryptions
