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.motherbrainrulez said:does anyone know if you could connect a ds to a wii so you can play against people far away without the shitty usb thingy?

USB to ethernet? I presume that means that the Wii CAN be wired, if needed...Internet connectivity
Nintendo has partnered with Opera Software to provide the Opera web browser for the system. It has announced that it will not be sold as a separate item. Wii can connect to an internet connection either wirelessly using WiFi, or using a USB to ethernet adaptor.
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).cwong5 said: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!
