    if you buy a nintendo version... it will work with both... i bought a plain old DS wifi usb for my friends Wii so we can hook up online 39.99 at target... it says DS on the box but will support any wifi nintendo gadget they come out with...

    the wifi max they have like 2 or 3 different ones
    1. Wii/DS lite
    2. PSP/DS
    3. Universal

    from what i saw so far... the nintendos all seem to run off channel 1 so far only tested the Wii/DS lite, ill have to grab my brothers DS to see if it works for that as well

    but really unless you have a hardwired computer "like i do" you dont need this, a home wireless system will be more than enough to support any wireless gaming system... you just have to figure out how to set it up..

    for all you hardwired people its pretty simple just plug and play the wifimax had better range but didnt send signal anyfaster then the nintendo "buffalo brand" usb wifi they are the same price but the wifi max brand is capable of more than just playing nintendo systems you can run laptops,stereos etc. off the wifi max one even if it isnt super fast its an added bonus just a little more to setup intially..

    one more thing about the nintendo that sucks there wifi usb only only works with XP and they apparently are working on vista but doesnt work yet... so unless you have XP, love nintendo more then your mother, and have no home wireless network already setup

    go with the wifi max same price as nintendo works on more OS and does more things

    I never needed to intall any other software (only the psp software on the disc it came with). Can your wii even detect it?

    each wifimax comes with software to run gaming systems... the gaming system isnt like a computer it isnt just going to recognize any signal thats open.. it has to be a specific signal... the wifimax though also will connect to laptops and other wifi enabled devices besides the gaming systems that its made for... so this means its open on all channels...

    the nintendo wifi usb is desinged to only run nintendo wifi devices so its not searching for anything else...im sure you could hack it to change that but its not made for it..

    all you really need to do is go to best buy and pick up the Dslite/Wii wifimax... install that software and take it back to the store when your done.. that will add a few more gaming systems that the wifimax is able to pick up... im almost certain this will work just because the wifi max is able to run other things besides gaming systems which means its not hardwired on one channel... Wii/DSlite run on channel 1 were the PSP/DS seem to run off 3

    so just try that or search limewire or some kinda p2p network for the other wifimax software to run it... its probably the exact same usb adapter just packaged with seperate software.. the only thing that might happen is you might get software interfearance when it trys to run so you might not be able to run both at the same time just close one program and open the other... hope that helps
