Yes it's improved. Unlike gen 4 you no longer need WEP to play online. You only need wifi.

You never needed WEP to play online, all DS models can connect to open networks.

He meant you needed the lower security WEP rather than WPA...

For most people networking concepts are extremely arcane... heck, I know more than most, even done work related to networking, and I don't know what's going on most the time...
