    I always thought this would be so cool... in case some of you don't know, xlink kai is a program that supposedly let's you play Ad-Hoc PSP games as if they were wi-fi. Well... that's not a good explanation, but it let's you play Ad-Hoc games with people all over the world without having them be close to you.

    So I was wondering if it was possible to somehow do something like that for the DS. For example, being able to play local online games on wi-fi.

    probably not, the ds is not able to run multiple applications/games at the same time, and you would need to to pull this off.... the only way i can think of doing it would be to have something it slot 2 which takes over your wireless connections and alows you to do that with hardware, not software

    Local multiplayer on the DS expects response times that TCP/IP cannot reliably provide. A tunneling project was started by the same guy who gave us homebrew wifi libraries in the first place, but he gave up after a while.
