PS I just bought the router today because my dad wanted to use his laptop downstairs so I figured... instead of buying a 40 dollar Nintendo DS wi-fi usb port thing, I bought a 120 dollar router that was on sale for 50 bucks, I got the laptop connected to it and the PC seems to work just fine, I just can't get on with the DS /sigh.

I had the same problems with my WiFi router. And all is in the decryption. You see, the laptop uses WPA decryption and the DS - WEP. So you there is no way that all hardware is connected to the internet. Just buy Nintendo USB WiFi connector. Delegatjust change the computer to WEP rather than waste money on a connector. also make sure to forward the ports on the router. which ones? i do not remember but they are listed on the nintendo wifi site. follow the directions.

My wi-fi USB connector was only $20. It's freakin' awesome.Very easy to set up and takes up almost no room. Cheap, fast, and has great range. I could use it a house away! It's probably giving me cancer though.
You guys need to learn how to use eBay better.
I also use a USB connector it is easy to connect works like a charm.

Hey are you still having problems with your ds i just fixed mine 10 sec. ago i went to the support on the nintendo website and entered the error code i recived from my games and it told me to go to START>RUN>CMD>OK once in command prompt it said to enter IPCONFIG/ALL and when i'm in my DS WIFI settings to enter the info you recognize on the DS and to turn both automatic settings off and in IP address enter the last set of digits after the third period to add 10 to the value so if i had 184.108.40.206 you would put 220.127.116.11 and save your settings and it should not act up anymore9mmtylenol
