Alright, i'll apologize before hand. Lol I don't know much about the nds hacks so i have a lot of questions. Most i figure out by myself, but others i just have to ask here. This time I have a question about the NDS WiFi. Is it possible to download a hacked APP to go WiFi without having to buy anything? Would it connect wirelessly so i could play my nds roms online?

Thanks,

Quikshadow

You should look up how wireless works. It would answer your question.
So long as you're in range of a wireless device, you can have access to it provided you have the password (if there is one set up).
There are 4 common types of Wireless signals: WEP / WEP2 / WPA / WPA2 each increasingly difficult to 'crack'.
The Nintendo DS can only use WEP, so the other 3 signals are useless.
If you can find an open WEP access point in your area, you could connect and use your DS.
If you have a protected WEP access point, you could 'crack' its security, but that's probably not legal.
If you cannot find any wireless signals near you, you will need either a Wireless Router or a Wireless Card/USB stick that supports AP-Mode (Access Point Mode).

There isn't an app.
The Nintendo DS has a wireless adapter built in as well as its own connection software.
Also, games that support WiFi will have configuration menus.

wifi cards/usb sticks won't work for the DS unless it has a true "AP-mode"
most wifi receivers for a PC only support ad-hoc access points which don't work for a DS.

Thanks. That's what I meant but couldn't recall the proper term... figures it's something so simple and descriptive

Ah alright. Where would be a place i could buy this? I mean I've seen the wireless usb stick what works with the ds and the wii. And since i have both, ive looked all over. Seems now it's not sold in stores anymore : (. Would you recommend me buying online?

EDIT: One more question. Do I HAVE to buy the usb stick?

Unfortunately it seems that Nintendo has discontinued their WiFi USB sticks, which is a shame because they were cheap ($35) and easy to use.
If you're going to spend money, I'd suggest getting a Wireless Router rather than a USB stick.
As thedicemaster said, most USB Sticks will not support AP Mode, and typically the ones that do will cost you ~$50 or more.
For that price, you can get a decent Wireless router. I recently bought a NETGEAR WGT624 for $50 at BestBuy and I'm very happy with it.
I would suggest going with Linksys as they have always been a good company in my opinion, but NETGEAR hasn't disappointed.

If you're looking for a place to buy online, I'd suggest Newegg.com. They have relatively good overall prices (price + shipping) and are pretty good about getting your stuff sent out fast.

To the best of my knowledge, accessing an unsecured Access Point is not illegal in the US... though I don't think you'll hear anyone say 'Sure go for it!'. It's sort of a gray area. It's the responsibility of the person who owns the Access Point to secure it.

Is the connection messing up or just the wireless?
If it's just the wireless, make sure your WEP code is correct. Try disabling your wireless security and seeing if it works then, if so, that's probably the problem.

If you have a Linksys, just type "http://192.168.1.1" into your web browser, and enter your login. If it was never changed, the username and password should both be admin. Then just go to the wireless security settings.
