    I have a zyxel G-220 usb wifi adapter. It is not designed to send to the ds, but on some reviews about the nintendo wifi usb they said: it's just a wifi adapter wich has a special program on the pc to make it connect to the ds.
    I have got a wifi capable internet router but it kicks out my ds every time (as well as other stuff).
    So, does anyone know a program to turn a zyxel G-220 into a adapter wich can connect to my ds?

    I just did a quick google search and found this: http://download.cnet.com/ZyXEL-G-220-v2-Wi...12_4-99184.html

    Have you tried just plugging it in and fiddling with the default options in Windows, should be able to set it up as an AP via My Network Places I think. Either way it should work with ur DS, just make sure you leave it unsecure or use WEP encyption, WPA wont work.

    Get on your Router settings and enable P&P and also find a way to prioritize your DS whenever it connects, giving it a static IP address.... Netgear can do that, dunno about the rest

    if i remember your wifi pen is with zydas chipset, and is compatibile as ds lite or nintendo access point,
    you just need the zydas software, if you tell me your windows version i can give you a link.
    i used them to play yugi oh online
