    As I have a WPA-TKIP internet connection, I cant play DS games online. I am thinking about buying a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector but they can cost from £30-50. I found the Wiki on it and its says "The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector is a re-branded Buffalo WLI-U2-KG54-A" so I found them and they cost around £15 pounds.What I was wondering is if the Buffalo would work with the Nintendo Software?


    Thanks

    Or as your in the UK goto CEX and get one for £12 link [​IMG]

    you can also buy online from that link [​IMG]

    The downside is you cannot use them as they are for homebrew that uses online ..although you can convert them to a softapp wifi basically turn them into a normal usb wifi adapter which you could probably buy one anyway!? Its down to you really [​IMG]

    Can anybody tell me how I would use the Nintendo Wi-Fi adaptor as a standard Wi-Fi dongle?

    Also can I use my laptop, PSP ect with in access point mode or would I have to hack it? If So How?

    Thanks

    I am not 100% sure, so I was wondering, if I have a wired connection, (no Wi-Fi) will the USB Adapter create Wi-Fi for my DSi and DSL, or is it just one of those things which finds a wireless router, connects to it, and then gives you the wireless router's connection?
    If what I say is confusing, tell me, and I'll explain it.

    This guide tells you how to hack a Nintendo WiFi connector: http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/ds/file/925329/40161
    I'm not sure if I understand your second question correctly, but if you hack a WiFi dongle, it should allow your PSP and other computers to connect to it.
    However, you cannot connect your DS to a laptop or PSP, since the DS does not support ad-hoc connections. (This is explained in the FAQ too)

    If you want to take the easy way out, here's a product you can buy: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3345
    It's a WiFi dongle that supports Wii, DS, PS3, and PSP.

    The purpose of the USB adapter/WiFi dongle is to convert a wired internet connection into a WiFi access point, so the first thing you said is correct.
    However, the second thing you said is true too, and it's useful if you have a WPA/WPA2 security wireless router.
