In addition, there will be no charge for Wi-Fi connections, or first-party Nintendo wireless Internet content.

As for the wifi i'm not sure, but i don't see why a normal wireless router wouldn't work (i think it does for the ds)
I agree that it will be free. However if I'm understanding you right, your conclusion on the wireless, but the logic is all wrong. Wireless is not just wireless, there is WiFi, IR, bluetooth, Nintendo Proprietary (used for DS-to-DS wireless, uses less battery than WiFi), and all of them can only communicate to themself. For example: if you have a WiFi router, you can't get the signal on a bluetooth reciever. In the original post, Mandude asked if you had to have a router/reciever or if you could pick up off a network. The answer to that is: for a wireless network to exist (in computers), there has to be a router. So, yes, you have to have either a wireless router or a Nintendo USB reciever.Recusant said:Yeah, they aren't going to charge. Wireless routers will work for it, it is WIRELESS after all. And yes, the DS uses wireless routers/access points to access the interwebs.
Wow. Your first post was to a question two and a half years old... I wonder if they were still waiting for the answer?!?! LOL
