    in order to use my DS to get online I have to change my router from WPA to WEP but I heard the Wii supports WPA so is it possible to use my DS to get online through the Wii or something?

    nope. heres how it breaks down

    DS = WEP only

    Wii = WEP, WPA

    so you either put your router on WEP and have both or have more security with WPA but with only the wii. or you can just get the wifi dongle thingy.

    The DS not supporting WPA is pretty annoying, no way in hell will I trust my network with something as pathetic as WEP...

    So when I game on my DS, I just steal my neighbor's Linksys wireless network [​IMG]
