Diamond is always more popular than Pearl. I wonder why?

Why the man on the top left is none other than Mike Meyers, or better known as Wayne from Wayne's World, know you anything?

Of course, jim0988. How could anyone forget good ol' Mike Myers? Your knowledge of Hollywood actors is quite disappointing.

In the words of Wayne: "Excellent!". This could be a sign of lag-free play. If Nintendo messes the actual online gameplay up, they are going to be (expletive)ed.

Hey, Elementrat, that other one you said that you had dial-up. Well all it was was a kid on the photo channel with a bunch of anime pics, that when he zoomed out there was a picture.

Shame. My wifi for my ds doesn't even work, but it works for my Wii. I type in the error code but it says it's unable to find an ip code. Well if my Wii can, why can't my ds?

I have found WiFi to be EXTREMELY finicky. When I am in big cities, I am able to get a signal, and then the next second it's gone. WiFi has a LOT of problems, so it might actually be a problem with the signal, not your DS. If your Wii works with it, I'm not sure. How many bars are you getting on DS?
