    No. You can use ANY wireless point, incluyding hotspots.

    This includes your wireless router, don't worry

    You can buy the Nintendo Wifi dongle. You plug it into your computer and you can connect to it through the DS

    Thats what he is talking about. Im not sure how much it is in other countries but here in AUS it can be had for around $50. It also works for the wii so you wouldnt have to worry about wires or anything like you do now.

    ummm i thought i needed a wireless connection for that thing to work with the wii?
    what am i missing here.
    i purchused the lan adapter becasue i have a wired connection.
    explain to me if i will be able to use the ds online with the wifi connector and if so why cant i use it for the wii?

    No. If you already had a wireless connection then you wouldn't need the wireless adaptor!

    Trust me, you need the wireless adaptor.

    It plugs in to your computer. Then you can connect to it with your DS.

    Trust me

    It plugs into a PC (XP not Vista) and provides a wireless access point to your network.

    Yes.

    All it does is allow you to wirelessly connect to your wired network. It is specifically made for people who don't have wireless broadband

    Okay, so, here's what you need.

    If you don't have a Wireless 802.11b/g Router, you will need the Nintendo WiFi adapter.

    Look here.

    Heres a Picture of the item.

    You plug the adapter into the USB on your computer that has Internet Access, and this allows Both the DS and the Wii to connect Via that computer to the internet, wirelessly.

    The DS has a built-in mic. There is no need for the headset.

    You can't chat on mariokart though. Metroid has a chat feature
