    I get my internet through a network and I don't have access to the main router/gateway PC. Is it possible to set up the PC I am on to be a WiFi access point so I can take my PSP, DS and anything else online?

    get a nintendo wi-fi usb connector (from somewhere) and configure it for your DS. I'm not sure that it'll work with PSPs though

    Haven't those things been discontinued because of licensing issues?

    Any USB WiFi dongle will do ... it's just the 'official' Nintendo ones are easier to set up ...

    Will I need any special software to get it running?
