    Youd have to try really hard to find one without it. To let a DS use the network you have to use WEP or disable security all together.

    What you need is not a new modem but a specialized wifi router with a usb
    port for usb modems.

    Examples of those are the

    CradlePoint CTR350

    this one is quite useful and can is perfect for your use. it does not have internal
    battery but an external usb battery can be used with the proper adapter cable

    CradlePoint PHS300

    this one has a built in battery though it does not have an ethernet port so if you
    need ethernet then get the one above.

    you decide if getting a usb modem with built in wifi is the cheaper option if not
    choose one of the above routers.

    If you're using a modem like this one:
    http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/product/529..._usb_modem.html,
    and have a compatible Intel Wireless card you may be able to use Intel MyWifi. Or if that doesn't work, there's always Connecifty and VirtualRouter. Both Connectify and VirtualRouter are not dependent on Intel technologies. They support a variety of wireless card manufacturers. They simply create a "virtual router," that emulates a physical router without actually having one. NOTE: I believe this technology is only available on Windows 7.I usually use this on my laptop as a hotspot for my Zune to connect to, especially at college; with ip restrictions, etc.
