Okay, the gist of my problem is that I can't get my DS online using Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connection. I've tried changing my wireless router to WEP, but that didn't work, so I have a wireless USB adapter (this one) that I'm trying to use to create an ad-hoc network that I then bridge to my current wireless network and then connect my DS to said ad-hoc network. As evidenced by the fact that this thread is here, this has not been working.
My network currently consists of a Wireless-n router (some Linksys model that I forget) that's set up in my mother's room (and for my purposes should be considered something that can't be tinkered with), along with my PC which has a Wireless-n card and the aforementioned USB adapter. My OS is Win7, if it matters.
I'm a total novice when it comes to wireless networking, so I'm not really sure what I'm doing. I set up the USB adapter's drivers, went in, created a new ad-hoc WEP network using Win7's Manage Wireless Networks deal, and then attempted to bridge the two, which resulted in an error pertaining to an IP address conflict.
I've been futzing around with this for an hour and a half and I'm just totally lost at this point. Any help would be appreciated; if anyone believes they can talk me through it, then by all means shoot me and PM and we can work through it over MSN, AIM, or Steam.
