    DS Lite Wireless USB Adapter Help

    Since I cant connect my DS Lite to my router because its WPA2, I want to buy a wireless usb adapter so that I can connect my DS Lite using WEP. Can someone recommend a good adapter that works with a DS Lite? Thanks.

    I would like to buy the official adapter but im short on cash. Do you know of a cheaper, non nintendo brand that will work?

    Please don't double post, as for if I know of a different one, I do not. That's not to say there isn't another brand or method, I just don't know of it cause I have only ever used the USB connector I linked for you and now use a wireless router.

    Can't you ask whoever administers your router to change the encryption type to WEP? Then you won't have to buy anything to get this to work.

    Im have complete control of my network and I can change it to WEP but I have read that WEP has horrible security.

    It is. but you installing a new device to open up a WEP connection is still opening up a WEP connection. It's just as insecure as you changing your router to be the same.

    Also keep in mind that at least some of the DS wifi games have had their servers shutdown by now.

    Couldnt I just hide the new network and use MAC address filtering so that only my ds can access it?
