    Hey all,

    I've been trying to connect my Nintendo DS (and wii) to my MBP to play some multiplayer games via wi-fi.

    However, I can't seem to connect. When I search for an access point my DS cannot detect my mac or my wireless router (billion). (I've unsuccessfully tried with Pokemon and Metroid, but I want to make sure it works before I buy the new Advance wars game)

    I have tried this but when I do the "dig" thing in Terminal it tells me that no server could be found.

    Oh, and this is not a problem directly related to my DS, as my house hold has 3 NDSs and a Wii, all of which cannot connect.

    All help is much appreciated =)

    What WiFi security are you using? Cause DS's and Wii's (I think) only work with WEP 128-bit security. It's lame I know. Otherwise do a search there used to be a big thread regarding bouncing your internet signal off of your Mac to your DS, but note that you have to have a wired internet connection to your Mac so you can use your Airport to broadcast.

    EDIT: Here it is:
    That MacOSHints page is waaaay more difficult than it has to be.
