You know that "wifi enabled" flashcards are just a sales gimmick right?
If you didn't, now you do.

I believe the R4i gold cn? (someone correct me pls) is the only good clone there is.
You can get it from Temps sponsor, nds-card.com

They have an option for fast shipping but it costs a bit

Any specific card you would recommend? I just wanna toss a bunch of roms on it and let the kids enjoy some classic DS games. so ease of use is really #1

Why not the R4 sdhc from nds-card.com dirt cheap although does it have to have wifi? Servers are shutdown unless you use some homebrew but not sure if it is wifi enabled if someone can correct me

No DS flashcard has "wi-fi" anyway, the wi-fi module is in the DS, so all cards can use the wi-fi.
Perhaps some game needs patching for wi-fi, local multiplayer, anti anti-piracy, etc.
But the patching is normally done automatically on the fly by the rom loader, and the user doesn't even have to know about it.
And anyway, all this cards normally use some modified version of wood or some other loader, so they all work with whatever game you throw at them.

There's no WiFi enabled flashcard.
The only flashcard that offers something extra is the DSTwo and the Cyclo DSi.

The game accesses Wifi, not the flashcard.
Even internet enabled homebrews access the Wifi card of the DS/DSi/3DS.
The card doesn't do anything then "emulate" being a real card.

The DStwo sports a CPU and RAM, which are utilized for specific DSTwo homebrews.
The SNES and GBA emulator for once.
Dingux (Linux for the Dingoo) got ported to the DSTwo, a videoplayer and I believe there also was a WIP PS1 emulator (don't quote me on that)

The Cyclo DSi was the only DSi enabled flashcard.
I don't know anything about the card it self but it somehow spoofed itself to access DSi mode (giving games access to the cameras/extra CPU power and RAM)

All other flashcards are just "dumb slaves" that patch NDS roms and play back games.
If all, GBA flashcards are better pieces of technology ;p
