Is there a quick and easy way to configure this?

Or should I just turn off WPA and use WEP instead, I have 2 computers that are
wireless and now I want to be able to run my D.S. without toggling between WPA
and WEP in the pref's.

Looks like I'll be taking the thing back to the store,
Why can't everybody just use WPA?

The easiest way to do this.

If any of your machines have wireless capabilities but are hardwired.. then, you could create an Internet Sharing connection with a WEP protected network.

Nintendo sells a WiFi adapter but it only works with XP.. Last I heard there was a site trying to make it work with OS X, but I haven't heard anything about that lately.

Essentially, short of changing your main wireless to WEP, there's not much you can do, other than try the Internet Connection sharing. This will give you 2 networks in your home.. the WEP and the WPA networks.

edit: Sorry.. I misunderstood your question, you already have the adapter. It's basically useless to you right now, AFAIK.

Check here to try the internet sharing: - How to share a wireless connection with a Nintendo DS
