Try changing your default gateway to 192.168.0.1 [your router address]
[sorry - please ignore that!]

Re: DS WiFi connection with a drongle... help.. please help...

OK. DS's can be a right pain to get online.
Firstly are you using the old style DS or the DS lite. I also assume you're using an official cart. If it's the DS light, they're notorious for being a pain to get online. But they are doable.
Firstly make sure your wireless channel is above 8. Yes I know sounds strange, but similar to the 360 the lower channels are a right pain.
Secondly the only encryption that the DS can support is WEP. anything else and it'll just say naff off.
Thirdly if using a WEP key you should use passkey 1 rather than the keyword. Even though it should work, the DS just hates it.
