Initially when I heard that Nintendo was rumouredly coming out with a web browser I was stoked. For a (now) small DS Lite system, it has turned out to be a small wonderhouse(?) and it's touch screen has brought touch based gameplay to the masses that I was playing before on my Tapwave Zodiac. Sadly, despite all it had going for it, the Zodiac did not even come CLOSE to selling well enough. The Nintendo DS has never really suffered that problem. Before games came out for the DS using WiFi I was hearing a lot of typical hype. "You'll be able to play over the internet almost anywhere," etcetera, et al, and all of that other BS that follows typical media and first party hype. Well, I was originally VERY excited until I learned one near fatal flaw behind Nintendo's WiFi connection. For security, it is WEP or nothing. Crap. WEP?!? Well, Nintendo's reasoning behind the flawed and easily breachable wireless "encryption" scheme was it was easily supported by most products, and most gaming consoles use WEP. Great. Just [bleepin'] great. I hate WEP, and was running WPA-PSK w/ TKIP or AES on the laptops. Funny, Nintendo, but Sony supports WPA-PSK w/ TKIP or AES. I was sorely disappointed that they did not support WPA-PSK. Anyhow, to get around this shortcoming, I got the WiFi USB 2.0 Adapter. It worked nice, but I didn't always have a blasted computer on to "share" it's internet connection. I unplugged it from my laptop, or desktop, and threw it in one of my laptop's bags [I have two bags, have one laptop]. I gave up getting online with my DS. When I got my Wii originally back in February, I was tickled pink. It is definitely an awesome system and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I initially had some issues with it and had to change out a high-end 802.11n router for a "lower" 802.11g Buffalo router that WORKS when the Wii isn't being picky. This past Saturday I was walking through Target with the purpose of getting a CD and being in-and-out. I got a call from a good friend in North Carolina, and walked around the store a bit. I sit all day on calls, so when I get a call on my cell I start moving around or walking. I went down the toy aisle, nothing new or on sale, went by the PS2 and PS3 stuff (waiting on price drop before I get a PS3) and nothing new. On a whim I went down the aisle where my Target has the DS stuff. They had the DS Web Browser, and Planet Puzzle Challenge (FUN, ADDICTIVE GAME, BTW). Since my laptop is DEAD (RAM and Motherboard issues), I've been "borrowing" an internet connection from my Mom's desktop or my Dad's laptop. I thought that if I tweaked the settings to be as secure as possible, I could enable my Buffalo router's AOSS service and get my DS and Wii online and use the DS Web Browser to surf the web. On that note, I bought the cartridge. I listened to the CD I bought on the way home (FWIW, Brad Paisley's Fifth Gear) and was excited to have the game and an internet connection. It was late, and I was on my way to go swimming at a friend's house, so I saved setting up the DS Web Browser for later.
