    There was talk of Nintendo using the Wii almost as a Wi-Fi hotspot. I'm thinking that the DS will connect up to the Wii, so I don't think it matters if you've got wireless or not.

    As for the playing against people far away - I would thinks so. Wii uses the same system (friend codes), so I'm sure you can. 95% sure at least.

    USB to ethernet? I presume that means that the Wii CAN be wired, if needed...

    I thought all DS is wireless. You don't need the "USB thingy" as long you have a wireless router, which the wii will need to contact via anyway. so my suggestion, if you don't already have a wireless router, go get one before wii comes!

    If I'm not mistaken, the problem is with the fact that some only have/want a wired router, and only have the USB thing to put the DS online. I for one don't want a wireless network (apparently too difficult to make it secure).

    By the way, welcome to the forums.

    Will The Wii Have A Reception Of Like A Mile Or Something?

    That'd Be Nice... SO You Can Connect To A Hotspot!
