I don't know if I should buy a Nintendo Wifi Adapter. Where does it go? How does it connect? I thought the DS already had wireless internet built in. I went to gamestop and read the description:

You must have a broadband connection to use the USB connector. Dial-up connections will not work with this device.

This USB connector is for those who don't have a wireless Internet connection, the adapter can plug in to a computer's USB port to create a Wi-Fi connection with the DS. Users can then use this to play compatible Nintendo DS games online.


So if I buy this I plug it in to my pc? But then what? Does the DS just automatically detect it and I can play with anyone around the world?

Thanks for that. That was really helpful? Is there any way I don't have to buy it to where the DS can detect just my wireless network or do I need to have some sort of Wifi to use it?

Also, does the EZFlash 4 Lite Micro SD and MML work with online play and this adapter?

Has anyone had any experience using the wifi connector on locked down networks? I spend a lot of time in hotels and was hoping I could use the wifi Adapter and my laptop to play some online games on those lonely nights. I just worry that the ports neccessary for the adapter to work will be blocked. I usually have to deal with networks supplied by I-Hotel and the like.

    Just, in general, sound bars are a scam.

    An actual decent to good sound bar is going to be as expensive as a lower end home theater in a box system with less functionality and a poorer sound stage

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which is to say you're spending so much money to still have 100% of the sound come from the bottom of the TV.

    You really can't judge based on video reviews as it's not the pure sound coming from it
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    So any product reviewer can just say spend $200 more on this cause it sounds better be your own judge

    Plus stores have that 30 day return thing if you're not happy with it return it it shouldn't need to be a huge deal lol

    I'd love to own a good klipsch or Yamaha receiver but I don't really need to spend $200+ on a receiver living in a single bedroom apartment

    Funny that, I actually just replaced a Yamaha receiver, replaced it with a manufacturer refurbished Denon unit
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Only reason for replacing is that the Yamaha unit was like 8 years old and didn't support 4k video

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    Denon makes good shit

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And now that I think of it, only a single device that's plugged into it is even capable of outputting a 4k signal anyway lmfao
