Right now I'm typing this on my 3DS. I have Internet on it, but there's things I can't do and I have no idea why. I can't connect to the E-Shop, I can't get into that Nintendo Pass thing, I can't do anything but go on the browser! This means I can't trade Pokemon or battle with people across the world, right? What do I have to do to get all that stuff? I'm dying here, guys! I'm a dinosaur with technology.

Try updating the operating system in the settings. I had this problem. If it doesnt work, you need to power on while pressing L R, A and Up on the dpad, at the same time you need to power it on, while still holding the buttons, so push and hold all the buttons first, then get someone else to tap the power button for you, and wait till the update screen comes up.

Hope this helps!

My system is already updated. When I go to the main start screen of my DS Pokemon games and mess with Wi-Fi settings, it seems to want me to have a WEP security code instead of my WPAK2 (AES) security. So since all my Pokemon games are for the old DS, is my Wi-Fi too updated for it or something? Can I get a WEP security code or will I need, like, a new router?

If you have WEP abilities on your modem (And most should), you can just configure your modem for that. However, keep in mind that you'll also have to set up a second connection in the Nintendo DS Connections from the initial Internet Settings screen, as well as one in the main 3DS connections screen.

If I configure my router to WEP, will I lose my WPAK2 AES setting? Wont I lose connection to the Internet on my 3DS and Wii if I do that? I'm so confuzzled >_<

Don't screw with your router settings yet. Try Nintendo's suggestions before doing anything like that.
