(Before I get too ranty, please please please do not recommend a router for any reason. I have dialup at home and it's AOL which I can't get out from under of, so a router is useless, much less anything else. Using a USB adapter at other internet sources, which may or may not allow the DS in directly, is the only option i've got here.) Ahem. I would like to know, in very clear terms, answers one of the following, or preferably both: 1) I have struggled mightily to make Nintendo's infamous USB Adapter work on Windows 7. Using Vista compatibility mode on the installer makes it appear to install just fine, but no matter what, the godforsaken piece of trash cannot pick up on any internet connection I try: ICS on or off, it makes no difference. I've tried messing with Windows Firewall and even turning it off altogether, that doesn't help any. I have no third party anti-virus software or any other utilites that are known to get in its' way. I've also tried having Windows bridge the internet connection and the adapter, which at first glance does the trick, but then it appears to make my connection chug to a halt. The thing just will not work. Is there some solution to this that I haven't found or am I better off going to plan B below? 2) Failing the above (which wouldn't suprise me), I need some other USB-based solution that I can be as sure as possible will work with at least the DS. Yes, i've searched the forum and read this and the related pinned topic; unfortunately, a lot of the links in there are dead or otherwise advertising adapters that are out of production. I just want to know what will work and what I have to do to make it work, so I know what's more trouble than it's worth or not. Or, are these things just too unpredictable? And before I forget, Halp plz?
