First off you need to have a PC(XP ONLY!!!) and a hi-speed internet, THATS ALL!!! The setup is sooooo easy,a caveman can do it!!!!!!!!The only thing tat stinks is you can only be 40 ft. away to have a maximum 3/3 connection. If you don't have a Wi-Fi router

and dont have anything compatible with Wi-Fi but the DS, get this.

This USB can ONLY work for the DS and i heard on the internet that it can also be used for the upcoming Nintendo Revolution!!

The only thing you have to look out for is DONT GET THIS ON AMAZON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it can be bought for 35 -40 bucks from Nintendo or bestbuy!

Sure, the "Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector" is great if you don't have a wirelesss rouder, but please, $50? I found this for $30 at the Nintendo site. Why pay overpriced? Even though the price on 'Amazon' is selling it for is high, it's perfect for people who have Wi-Fi compatible games but no rouder. I would have ginev it a 4/5, but the price is too high.

The program itself is quite a disapointment. It's interface was so simplistic you couldn't do anything but "allow" or "stop" access.

I spent an hour working on this until I found on the Nintendo WiFi site the following:

Software Firewalls Identified as Being "Incompatible" with the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector

We have identified the following software firewall(s) as being incompatible with the use of the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. We suggest using another firewall product, if possible:

Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite

Important Note: In order to use the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, Zone Alarm Internet Security Suit must be completely uninstalled from your computer. Simply disabling (turning off) this program will still not allow a successful connection.

------

How can this thing not work with the industry's most popular software firewall is beyond me.

Unless I can find a 3rd party adapter that like Zone Alarm, it looks like I'm going to have to build a wireless network.

Verified Purchase
My UBB connector only lasted a few month. It was a good few months though; but the point is that I was sold this for 3x the price when it first came out.

Next time, I'll just buy myself a wireless modem so I can trade with friends...

This is a solid product, your original nds games will be up and running in no time. However, that being said, if you have a M3 or similar development device to run homebrew on your NDS/NDSL the wifi won't work when using a development slot1/2 device. Also, you can only connect nds/wii to this. However, there is a workaround, if you uninstall the nintendo drivers and install asus drivers and set it up properly you can use it as wireless for any device, including homebrew.

I am able to get online with the Wii using this device, but it is very touchy. My connection comes and goes seemingly at will. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I would not recommend this product if you're using the Wii and not the DS. And yes I have disabled the firewall and my regular internet connection works beautifully so that is not the problem.

This item is just awesome, all I have to do is plug into any system that runs with internet and I automatically get connected to nintendo wifi. This is definetly something I recommend getting if your wireless router doesn't support nintendo and give you access.

Plus I got this product like two days into the delivery estimate. I would definetly purchase this product from this seller.
