    Alright, here is what i got.
    I found a WifiMax usb adapter for $10. I connect to the internet thru my draft N usb adapter with WPA/2 encryption for faster speed (N only uses WPA/2 sadly). Is there a way to the WifiMax adapter and bridge the connection from my N adapter to the DS adapter?

    So what i want is this

    Draft N router with WPA/2 encryption-> Draft N USB adapter with WPA/2 support -> Computer -> Wifi Max USB adapter with WEP encryption -> NDS with WEP encryption

    Can it be done?

    I have yet to figure out how. If I do I will post what I did.
    If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be eternally grateful... and that's about it.

    I'm assuming you're using Windows.

    Basically what you're looking to establish is:
    1) Get your pc connected to the internet via router #1 (already done)
    2) Get your pc connected to router #2
    3) Setup router #2 as an access point
    4) Enable internet sharing
    5) Bridge the two connections

    I have tried that, but the DS will not connect to the AP even without firewall and encryption.
