    Hi everyone,

    I'm gonna buy a DS Lite and I have a eMac here with a non wireless internet connection.
    I read that Wi-Fi adapter only works with Windows and for only if you have air port or wireless connection. Since I have none of both I was wondering if there's a way I can be able to Wi-Fi my DS with my eMac.

    Brazil here m8, prices change like seasons. Expensive to the roof. Air Port is out question and wireless router... maybe, but I was wishing to know a way to connect the Wi-Fi adapter to a Mac without need a a wireless connection.

    Ahhh, okay... So you cannot get a WiFi router, you do not have and cannot get an airport card in your eMac, but you could get the WiFi adapter that Nintendo sells. Is that right? I dunno... sorry, unless someone made a driver for it, it won't work on a Mac. Any other USB WiFi adapter that has Mac drivers will, although they're about as expensive as a router or Airport card.

    There is no *non* wireless solution...the "wi" in Wi-Fi stands for wireless. There's no way to network a DS using a cable, that I know of. :(
