ok, I already have a Wireless router so do I still need to get that USB adaptor thingy? or am I all good to go as long when I buy the Mario Kart game? It's been bothering me for a while.

Usually you won't need the USP thing, so I say don't buy it yet, but you may run into compatability problems with your router, so the best thing you can do is check when you get the game.

that doesn't say all the routers. If you have a different one it is likely to work. The site reccomens Zyxel P-334W, but i have a Zyxel P-330W.
So if its different just try it out. And BTW you do not need a Nintendo USB if you have a wireless router.*YAY ME*

Is there any way to check for UK routers? All I see is American ones.

Is there anywhere else you can get it from? (ie. a shop?)

No, they're only available on the internet. I'd just get a router. The little USB thing costs like, $34.99. I picked up one of these babies: http://www.nintendowifi.com/customersupport/routerSelect.do?manufacturer=Linksys&router=%2Frouters%2Fen%2FWRT54G%2FWRT54G.html

Marked down from $70 to $40. Routers are a much better bargian. 'Cause you can also lay Ethernet wires to your consoles, they have a strong signal(so you can play farther away from the computer.) The USB thing is a bit of a rip off.

Unless you want to wait for Metroid Prime Hunters. They'll be releasing a USB thing then, at least in America.

Right, well my dad has decided to make the house a wireless network anyway so I thought that this would be a good time to make sure we bought a "hub" that my DS can go online with. I would check the Nintendo WiFi website but the UK website isn't up yet so, does anyone know if the "BELKIN - 125G MODEM ROUTER (BELKIN F5D90117UK)" will be compatible for the DS? It would be much appreciated if I were to find out before tomorrow.

Thanks

You mean they'll have the Nintendo WiFi USB connector included with Prime Hunters?
