I don't have one of those newer DS's, do you need anything special for the wifi?

I remember I started playing competitively in gen 4 and you needed like a really expensive usb thing that always broke just to connect to online. Is it still this bad or did they improve this?

You need one of the newer DS's to play. It only works on a 3ds/xl/2ds

I know, but I'm asking if the newer DS can connect to wifi easily or if it's as bad as the first one.

The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector was never required for online, it was made as an alternative to a standard wireless router.

You need wifi to connect to the internet. A wireless router usually. Ask an adult for help. Or stop living in the 90s.

I've never had an issue connecting my 3DS to any wi-fi. In contrast, the DS/DS Lite had fairly poor internet capabilities. I don't think it could connect to WPA.

It doesn't disconnect nearly as often as dsi did, but it is low powered handheld wifi so there are a few bugs

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. WEP is just the highest level security DS Phat/Lite support. DSi and 3DS can connect to the more secure WPA & WPA2.
