EDIT: WAP should be WPA, sorry my dumbness
So I have a brand new DSi XL which now as opposed to the regular DS "can connect wirelessly to WPA protected networks".
Well, yes it can, I set the connection on the internet options of the console and it was successful. Nice.
Time to play some mario kart DS online. Put in the game, and go to NWC match. It didn't work because I had to set up the connection first.
"But I just did that"... ok, back to MKDS connectivity option panel to set up the internet connection on the game.
It happens that the "DS doesn't support this type of network" error pops up after searching for the same access point which was successfully set on the DS menu and I can go to the DSi Shop Channel with no probs...
So what is the "WPA" support afterall since the games are unplayable online? Just for DSi only features?
I'm probably returning back my console... I could set my network to wep in a matter of secondes, true, but Nintendo could make a real wap support for the damn portable.
I hope I'm wrong on this and somehow there's a solution to play any game online on the DSi XL using wap network.
