Hey guys, recently got a 3DS (without games, fml) so i've been using DS games, thing is, i never used the Internet because it was a DSLite, i know DSi supported WPA.

The 3DS does support WPA and i've been using the browser a lot, but when i tried to go online on my Tetris game (hey i know it's old but i love me some Tetris) it said it didn't supported my WPA connection, the heck?

What can i do?

Old DS titles only Supported WEP Encryptions. WPA was added when DSi came out in order to use the shop and now newer games for the DS and 3DS library should be using the WPA encryption.

Oh, so it's the DS Title and not the 3DS itself? I couldn't configure it in the system settings either.

Sorry for bumping again, but i still have this issue.

Got a friend of mine to lend me Pokemon Black to test the Wi-fi settings and it didn't worked, and PKMN Black it's kinda a new game, it should support WPA.

There's no fix for this?

I have Pkmn Black and it works with WPA in a 3DS, I got it few weeks ago, so there is other problem with yours....

And I use WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] security....

So is there a way to fix this? it says it doesn't support my type of connection.

Weird is, a game i tried which i don't remember the name right now, actually let me choose my connection and asked me for the WEP key, it seemed weird so i typed my key and said it wasn't valid.

I don't really know what's going on with this :/
