  • If you have a wireless router, you can also connect to it on your Nintendo Ds (no WiFi USB connector needed), make sure the network isnt protected by a password (security enabled network), the DS does not support password protected connections.
  • You need to have WEP security or none or it will not work.

Warnings

  • Do not plug the WiFi connector into the USB port until the setup tells you to.
