    As most of you DS users know, the Nintendo DS is now online, with a few games out so far, including Mario Kart DS.

    So..discuss away (about anything Online DS related @_@)!

    I for one haven't gotten Mario Kart DS yet, but will soon (and I'll have to buy Nintendo's online mechanism, as I use a wired router).

    Since this is a wifi enabled game, this can go here (it's about Animal Crossing):
    Link removed

    There's only 2 words I can use here....
    HOLY FUCK
    400,000 preorders?! This basically means Animal Crossing DS just became a best seller BEFORE it was released!

    BTW I got Mario Kart DS today. Pretty damn sweet. Hoping to get the adaptor soon (also a wired user)

    I'm sure someone like nyko or madcatz will come up with something eventually XD

    But for it's simplicity, the Nintendo WiFi is great! I have yet to check out McDonalds or for the hell of it, Starbucks, and see if it works there. ^^

    It works at Starbucks, at least in my town. The problem is, there might be little kids showing up there to play DS... ah well. I plan on buying the USB adapter anyway, so no worries there.

    I don't have Mario Kart DS yet, as I live in the UK, but can you access Wi-Fi from the DS Dashboard (so I can see if my adapter works or not)?

    Mario Kart is SO ADDICTING!! I already have more than 20 hours on it and I've only had it for 3 days!!! I've completed 50cc, 100cc, 150cc, and half way through mirror 150cc.

    My USB is on backorder - seems there's too much of a demand. Guess I'll have to wait. :(

    Lucky for me, I get Wi-Fi right here in my own room. I don't need to walk so much as a step to play anyone online.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a Wi-Fi compatable game as of yet. I'll have that sorted out soon enough, though.

    Do you only need the wi-fi thing to play online or is something else necessary?
