Just the other day in anticipation of B2/W2 coming out I recently pulled out my DSlite and picked up Black. When playing for the first time in awhile, i found out that I can't play online being that my latest router uses WPA settings. After some research, I've found out that the Dslite cannot connect using WPA but I have heard conflicting stories about the 3DS and Black and White being able to connect to wifi using WPA security. Before I go out and buy a 3DS, I want to confirm that Black and White can connect using WPA while being played on the 3DS and if I can use WPA how do I go about setting it up so Black and White can use WPA on the 3DS?
NOTE: Nintendo DS software only supports WEP security. To connect to the Internet and play Nintendo DS software, please configure your Nintendo DS Settings and then make sure your access point is set up to use WEP security.
Clear as crystal, straight from the 3DS manual itself. (The message also appears on page 187, in French, and on page 301, in Spanish.) The same is true for all other DS software, DSiWare and DSi-enhanced cartridge software included (naturally, DSiWare and DSi-enhanced cartridges are equally considered DS software as, say, Super Mario 64 DS).
I am a die hard Pokemon fan to the most, including the traditional hate of Yu-Gi-Oh.
Semantics, you can play Black and White in a regular DS or DS Lite just fine, you just might miss out on a feature or two. Actually, I don't even know what those features would be. Anyone mind enlightening me? I've probably already heard, I just can't think of anything.
