Help connecting my sons DS to the internet, with ought changing all to WEP.

Hi guys, my son can only connect his DS to the internet when I lower the security on our SKY WIFI router to WEP instead of WKA/WPA. The only problem is the DS works but not the laptop.

I read that the DS does not support WPA, but you can keep this setting and connect the DS using an official Nintendo WiFi dongle, which are about 30 quid. There are cheaper versions for a tenner, but do these work? Or can anyone please recommend a cheaper one that actually works please?

Many thanks Guys Els

Play.com have them in play trade.The nintendo dongle is a bit fiddly with zone alarms but its perfect to get the ds online, we run 3 ds's wireless from it. it is installed into my laptop which needs to be left on while using the dongle



Great thanks for the advice , rep added :thumbsup:
