    Is it possible to use the wireless facility on the DS through the wireless card that is on my computer? I have tried to set it up but can't get it to detect the network at all:(

    Could somebody point me towards a good guide please? :)

    Or you could jsut buy the USB WIFI dongle, got mine in a highstreet music retailer for £30, instant setup.

    I didn't really want to buy any hardware if I can help it, it's not my Nintendo and my brother will want it back in a few weeks.

    It's very hard to set up with a PC WiFi card.

    I've managed to ad-hoc through my Mac Mini, so I'm sure it's possible on a PC. You just need to tell the DS your exact network settings (I had to use the terminal to find mine out).
