PostSubject: WiFi on a Nintendo DS   Sun Jan 23, 2011 10:07 pm

You have a nDS of some sort, but don't want to lower your router to WEP security just to use the WiFi function.

The Idea: Create a second WiFi network that utilizes WEP or no security.
The Solution: Use a USB wireless adapter stick that is capable of acting as a wireless access point.

Solution 1: Buy a used official Nintendo Wi-Fi stick. Nintendo hasn't produced these since around 2007, so you'll have to buy it used. Gamestop has it for the cheapest at $14.99 in-store in a few remaining locations. When you get that, install the last software update Nintendo produced for it (from Nintendo support) on your computer. Note that this software does not support 64-bit operating systems. The stick will broadcast a WiFi network that only nDS (or at least the ones that you allow) can access.

Solution 2: Buy any wireless adapter that is capable of being a software access point (SoftAP). There are plenty in the market; just make sure it can broadcast its own network (Newegg, Amazon). Download the latest software from the adapter's manufacturer and set up a new access point with either WEP or no security. Plug it in when you want to DS WiFi; take it out when you don't.

That's pretty much it, really.

Also, the Nintendo WiFi dongle requires that you turn off Windows Firewall if you have it up. Antivirus is fine; firewalls apparently aren't.

This claims that the 3DS will support WPA/WPA2 security settings. I couldn't find anything on Nintendo's site about it.
