No ds games support wpa. The USB thing is good, but it takes a while to set up. It's also quite a lot, so...

DS games only work on a WEP secured network or a network with no security.

The dongle has been discontinued so you can only find second hand ones.

If you want to use the USB device for all your wifi needs, go for it.

Which is why I said, Games only support WEP, and the Nintendo Wifi adapter has been discontinued, you can't buy a new one from the Nintendo store you will have to find a second hand one.

The reason it's annoying about the WPA/WEP thing is that WPA is much more secure from hackers than WEP. It's easy to download a program which can hack into WEP.

How many people are going to be within 10 metres of the wifi hub with that program though?

Errmmm... If someone downloads that program, they're going to be out to hack someone's stuff. And if you live literally right next to a road, all they have to do is sit in their car, and they have plenty of time to get all your details.
