    Where can I buy one?? Any retail stores carry them, or is it just from Nintendo's website?

    I don't think Nintendo is selling any yet, and you can't use 3rd party ones made for PC's. What you could get is a wireless router. They aren't very expensive.

    question: would the USB adapter for the ds be fast enough a connection to support actual online game play? (i have dsl if that makes a difference)

    When you play online, you aren't actually pumping out the entire game over the web, it's only how you are moving and what you are doing. It's the same kind of information sent from the DS.

    Has anyone CONFIRMED that you can use any USB adapter?
    I know with a PS2 it was possible to use some generic USB ethernet adapters.

    The one coming from nintendo GARUNTEES(sp?) full functionablity with the wii. They probably did something to the wii so you couldn't use third parties converters. Just like they made the disc run backwards.

    It's not so much what they did as what they didn't do, that being create drivers on the Wii for every USB LAN adapter ever made. Kinda puts the complaints into perspective.
