I have a PC that's getting "seasoned" - in other words its old. Anyway, since everyone in my house over the age of 3 is now involved in one wifi-capable DS game or another, I'm planning to run out tomorrow and buy the Nintendo Wifi Connector. We got no notebooks or other need for wifi access around the house, so it should do the job for me, except ..... my old mobo still only supports USB 1.1. Will this be a problem? Yeah, I can get a 2.0 card with a couple ports for very cheap, but I'd still like to know if my old 1.1 ports can handle the rate.

There is no reason why it shouldn't because:
1) The DS is an 11b standard device which runs at a maximum of 11Mbps (same as USB1.1)
2) Online it won't even reach 1Mbps, speed is not an issue.
3) USB2 devices are backwards compatible with USB1.1.
