    Hey guys;
    Is there a router/hotspot program for PC that will create a hotspot? I cannot use Ad-Hoc on my DS Lite. If there is none then that is OK.
    Thanks,

    If your computer has built in wifi then maybe you might find something, I don't know of anything like that.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    connectify

    search and use it
    the problem is that is shareware..

    also, if you got windows 8, there is an option you can choose to easily make a hotstpot...

    Connectify is on of the program you might want to check t out. But it discconnect every 30 minutes, So yeah it's a kind of chore. There's another way without using software but more technical and involving command prompt.

    hint hint, get a special free version from that special website...

    or as i told. if you use windows 8 there is a built in feature...

    you can also try the street pass relay tutorials, i used them to make a wifi relay that worked with the ds..

    I have done some googling and it's really hard now to find a WEP encrypted sharing sortware. Maybe the only solution is to buy a usb stick.

    use a damn cracked version of connectify, the free version is limited, and the full price is too expensive for use with only one or 2 uses specially if nintendo servers are shutted down...


    if you get a usb stick you still need to configure it, and if you already have a wireless card, its a waste of money.
    btw, your pc will be needed to be connected to cable, you can not use the same wireless card for both internet and hotspot...

    The few times I needed to get my DS Lite online, I just used my phone as a hotspot. Just an idea.

    The hotspot stuff that's in Windows 8 is only WPA. It won't be usable with a DS Lite.

    It's possible your router has a Guest Wifi feature that you can use, if so you can just enable it temporarily when you need to use the DS online.
    Otherwise Connectify (paid/cracked) is your best bet, but I had trouble getting it to work with my 3DS, it wouldn't see the wifi at all even though other devices could connect just fine.

    No, not using hostednetwork, or else MACycle would still be somewhat useful on newer firmwares lol.

    get a cheap access point or router than can run DD-WRT and use that to create a dual purpose hotspot that can serve as both Streetpass Reley and to connect to the DS.

    On my router settings, it lets me make a "guest" connection, and lets me set it to free.
