Can connect HG/SS to WPA with DSi but not 3DS?

I know for an absolute fact that my Soulsilver version connects to WiFi successfully on my DSi when I have it set up for the "advanced WPA" connection, so I know that Soulsilver does support WPA.

What I don't understand is how to set up the same setting on my 3DS, because when I play a DS game on my 3DS it does not even list the option for the advanced WPA connection that my DSi did by default. My 3DS can connect successfully to play 3DS games because they go off the 3DS connection settings, but when its in "ds mode" it only gives me the 3 basic slots for a typical WEP connection and I don't know how to bypass that.

Does that make sense and can anyone share some insight?

You have to go to system settings-> Internet Settings -> and go to DS Connections. You'll be prompted to enter the set up WiFi for like the regular internet controls.

no HGSS can't do it. as they are not DSi games.
