Apparently my Nintendo Wifi Connector is dead/won't work with my laptop so I can't use it to hop on Wifi in the comfort of my home anymore.

I have the option of going wired with my Wii/360, or looking for a wireless router for all three. Needless to say, I rather go wired for the 2.

Can you go online at public places like Mc Donalds/Starbucks and buy games/add points/update your DS/3DS from there?

You could go get on a library's WiFi.

Yes, I've helped a friend update his 3DS while at the mall and have helped another update and download some things while hanging out at McDonald's.
Please do not feed the trolls, mark & move on. Likely posted from my 3DS.

It depends on the MCD's in general. The one I went to due to my terrible internet didn't work well. (Luckily my slow internet finally worked.)

Been a while TC. :)

You say you're on a laptop, google Connectify. I don't have a wireless router, and I dunno where my Nintendo wifi thing is any more.

If the components in your laptop are compatible you can create your own hotspot. Works really well for me. :) But I think it's only compatible with WPA so it's not gonna work with any handheld but the 3DS.
