A Shadow of Darkness
Ok, I've heard about not much mac support for the wifi stuff so I was wondering, I use the airport station to get wireless internet throughout the house, does the DS wifi work with that or I will I have to find another way?

your WW code is 0730-7545-1773. Where did you get that number? When I go to the Wi-Fi setup part of it, all I see is the Wireless Internet "name" I use for the internet.

help ASAP please, over at the Animal Crossing club, we're going to have a New Years Eve get together
