Nintendo USB Connector

The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector is a Nintendo DS dedicated wireless access point that plugs into the USB port on a PC (Windows XP only). Use the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector if you do not have access to a wireless network connection, or are unable to connect your Nintendo DS to the internet with your current connection. With the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, up to five Nintendo DS systems can be connected to the internet at the same time. Of course, this only applies to game cartridges that are Wi-Fi compatible.

Remember, to play with friends in the same room as you, the Nintendo DS can always connect to the other DS systems for wireless play without the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.
