    they CAN share the same router.

    the difference is down to wireless encryption.
    the Wii supports the superior WPA encryption whilst the DS uses the older WEP encryption.

    the Wii can use WEP also, so to use both devices you would use WEP encryption.

    just in case you havnt decided yet, i decided to take a punt on a cheap ebay ex-AT&T job like this

    Wireless Router

    (yes i know i posted in another thread, and no, im not pimping this guy hehe)

    you can get them cheap as chips, and it word really easily, despite being an old refurb job. I couldnt justify spening £40+ on a new proper branded one, so i took a chance and it paid off.
    Hope this helps!

    If you are in the US, there will be a Buffalo router on sale at CircuitCity from this Sunday for $25. It is not a decent price. If you are shopping for laptop, you may get a router for free. CompUSA has a few MIMO router for $30 after rebate, that is a good deal. I have 2 G router with built-in printer server that I paid $20 after rebate. The best deal was the Belkin router that I paid $8 after rebate 3 years ago. Even better, they are going to pay me back the retail value to settle a class action lawsuit. The stupid thing they did is advertising it as "54Mbps" instead of "up to 54Mbps". You know, the "Big Brother" (lawyers) is always watching.

    You don't need to get a really good expensive one. I use a £20 belkin router for my Wii and it works perfectly. If you want you could search for a access point and it may pick up your neighbour's connections. I could use my neighbours but it's got a weak signal.
    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but Im just not close enough to get the job done.
