    I know there are some DS emulators that are able to connect to Wi-Fi, but that's not really what I'm looking for. I was wondering if there's any emulator or program out there that allows a local wireless connection to the DS, for things like DS download play, local multiplayer, Pokemon trading, and whatnot. I've googled around a bit, but most of the information I've found is for connecting to Wi-Fi using an emulator.

    Download play. I believe some of the wifime stuff ended up somewhere near that when it comes to demos though the practical applications of such a thing are limited. Likewise some of the homebrew stuff headed in this direction but that is a different matter altogether.
    Otherwise not really. It is a similar thing to why there is no tunnel program to allow you to pipe local wireless play over the internet (the DS nifi protocol aka the thing that governs local wireless is possible to do with some conventional wifi hardware but it is a right pain).

    Well, that's too bad, but I'll probably be picking up a 3DS before too much longer, so I guess the stuff I need 2 DSes for can wait until then.

    Thanks for the info.
