Default Online Trading

So I have a DS, I have Pokémon Black, and I have a wired broadband internet connection.

Using those three facts, what is the best way for me to get my DS online so I can utilise the Global Trade System?

I'm guessing it would be a free Wi-Fi hotspot but I'd be lying if I said I knew how to find one of those. Has anyone here used a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB dongle? I've seen them on Amazon for Ł25 but that seems a lot of money to risk on something that I'm not familiar with doing, i.e. using my DS online.

If anyone's got any advice or experiences I'd appreciate it!

You should be able to buy a normal wifi router for less, then just use your own wifi :)

I can vouch for the Nintendo USB WiFi connector. It works perfectly for me, running Windows XP.

A wireless router is another option as Orange_Flaaffy suggested. But if you have a regular DS (not DSi) then you need to make sure the router has a WEP security option and that you use that and not WPA. =)

I'm on Vista (yes, I hate it too) and the dongle works fine for me.
The only drawback is that whichever PC it is connected to must be turned on for it to work.
Shop around for the dongle...
Pretty sure I didn't pay anywhere near that much for mine and unfortunately, the new BT Home Hubs (the black ones) are not recognised by the DS.

I just moved recently so my router isn't anywhere near where I usually play my DS. I was also wondering if something like this would actually work for wifi?

It certainly says that it will do the job for you.
I'm a stickler for brands though...
However, you are covered by Paypal if you don't get what is described.
Your choice.
