The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector

Nintendo’s Wi-Fi USB Connector is an impressive piece of hardware, not because it uses any sort of advanced engineering, but because it shows Nintendo’s dedication to entering the online gaming world.

Basically, the Wi-Fi USB Connector allows anyone with a computer and a broadband connection to log in to Nintendo’s Wi-Fi gaming service. That means that there is no need to pay for a wireless router and configure a wireless network. This is really, really a smart move by Nintendo. Even better, one USB Connector allows up to five Nintendo DS units to connect to the Internet at once.

PlayFeed has images of Nintendo’s new Wi-Fi device. It will be compatible with the new Mario Kart DS game, as well as the upcoming Tony Hawk DS game.
