DS games require WEP encryptions where as 3DS games can connect via WPA/WPA2.

I had that problem too, and hell if I change my wireless encryption to WEP. What I did do is set up my extra router to do WEP from my main wireless router and just go in as admin to switch on and off the wireless for that when I want to use it.

The only other method I know besides having multiple routers or changing your encryption to an older one is by purchasing a USB WiFi Connector and hooking that up to your computer.

Edit: Also would like to add that even though the 3DS supports WPA/WPA2, there are two WiFi setups, one is specifically for 3DS and one specifically for DS, and guess what, the DS one can't go beyond WEP. X_x;;

The exception to the general DS games needing WEP thing, are DSi enhanced titles like Pokemon Black, White, Black2 and White2. They can connect over WPA and WPA2, since the support for those connection security types was established with the DSi.

No I didn't import my connection settings (easy enough to just set stuff up again)
I'll try again tomorrow though to see if it works for me. Maybe I just messed it up lol
