In need of software access point
« on: November 22, 2007, 04:16 PM »
I recently got a free D-link DWL-G122 wireless usb dongle, and I was wanting to use it to connect my ds and if I ever get a wii to the internet. I tried to set up the card as an ad hoc, and my ds could see it, but when I tried to connect to it, it couldn't connect, and I did research on the internet, and noone else could do that either. So I was wondering if anyone knew of a program that would let me turn my usb dongle into an access point so that I can connect my ds to the internet. If anyone can help me out, that would be great. :Thmbsup:

Nintendo sells a USB WiFi dongle specifically for the DS and the Wii. In fact it doesn't work for anything BUT the DS and the Wii. Depending on where you get it, you can probably find it for around $25-$30.

Not what you want, I know. Sorry.

yeah, I wasn't mentioning Nintendo's dongle because it is no longer being made, so you could probably only find it on ebay.

It isn't? Wow. I just bought one a couple months ago. You might be able to find one at retail. I don't think they've been selling that well, probably why they've been discontinued.

I just went to wal-mart last night and I saw a few Nintendo branded USB WiFi Adapters. They're no longer being produced, but like I thought, you can still find them in stores.
