Alright, I recently purchased a WiFiMAX and what I am trying to do is use my computer as a bridge type thing. Except, I am not connected directly to the router, seeing as how I have a wireless router. However, I can't connect to the wireless router, with my DS, because my roommate will not lower the security settings, and the DS is only compatible with WEP(stupid on Nintendo's part right? xD). Anyways, I'm wondering if this would even work. Also, I have everything set up and it seems the only problem I am having is that the DS is unable to find an IP address when tell it to automatically obtain one, and when I manually put it in, it gives me an error saying that it can't connect. The message it gives is this, "Unable to connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Confirm connection settings and access point settings." and the error code is 52102. I looked up the code on the Nintedo website and did everything they said to do and it still gives the same error message. So, how can I get this to work, without beating the password to the router out of my roommate and changing it myself? xD

Isn't the WiFiMAX a special wireless adapter used on a computer to create the equivalent of a Wi-Fi hotspot to which game machines can connect wirelessly? If so, you could use it instead of trying to connect the DS directly to the wireless router.
