    Is it possible to increase the wifi range for the DS by modifying it externally? I got some connections further away from home so wanted to know if it possible but seems hogwash so please educate me [​IMG]

    You can increase it by opening it, but there's not "external" mod.

    i think the easiest way to get a better signal from a far way source is to use a booster (something that grabs a fading wireless signal and boosts it). Or you could increase the xmit power of the router itself.

    Sneak into your neighbors house and install a parabolic WIFI booster?? Can't be anymore invasive/illegal then tapping their bandwidth. =)

    I saw a vid where somone increased the range of a wifi usb stick with a noodle net, he cut a hole in the net and then sticked the usb stick in there, it acted like a parabolic antenna I guess, you could try this.
