    I had recently gotten Windows 7 as a gift from my dad this Christmas, but I had done research and realized that there is no software update from Nintendo that says that the WiFi Connector would work with Windows 7. Is there anything out there that can get the connector to work? I don't want to update to 7 from Vista (well, I do) and realize that the one thing that can connect my DS to the Internet won't work with the operating system on my computer.

    As I recall, sometimes it will work...but more often than not it won't.

    If it's 64-bit windows 7 then I'd say no, you might be able to do something with 32-bit though.

    Alright, well then I have one more question:

    My computer's Internet is connected via an RJ45 cable. Is it possible to put said cable into a wireless router, creating wireless internet? Because my computer has a wireless card also.

    That would be your best bet right there. You could also run another cable from the router to your computer if you still want to use the wired connection and only use the wireless for your DS. That's how I do it.
