    You need to get a special nintendo DS wireless dongle and software, theyre AU$49 and require broadband.

    First you need to know if your router is configured with A) no security B) WEP system C) WPA system. A & B will work, C won't. If it is WPA enabled & you can't or don't wish to turn it over to WEP, then you might as well get the dongle. The only drawback is that your PC will have to be up & running for you to play through it.

    start menu>run>cmd. In the new DOS window that pops up, type in ipconfig,
    and it will show you all of that information.

    You can have your DS search for access points. Is the SSID hidden in your router's configuration or have you set it to broadcast ?
