Today's deal at Stootsi is the Nintendo USB Wi-Fi Connector for Wii and DS. $19.99 and the cheapest shipping for me was $7.01, for a total of $27 shipped. They are open box models.
Yes, Stootsi can be trusted.

what are the advantages of this because the wii can already do wifi.
It's for people without wireless routers or people who can't get their wireless router to work with the Wii/DS.

Nintendo's support for this POS is downright atrocious. I actually bought one of these things almost 2 years ago to play some online DS games. The only way I was eventually able to use it was to completely shut off any and all anti-virus and firewall software (or else buy new compatible software). I kept hoping for them to improve compatibility, but they didn't.
I eventually gave mine to my brother when he moved into a place which didn't allow personal wireless networks (he gave me his wireless router), and then he proceeded to spend a ton of time trying to get it to work with his setup (of course at the time he couldn't even use it on his good computer since it took them a couple of months to get Vista support for the device).
Anyways, according to Nintendo's official website http://www.nintendo....a/onlineUSB.jsp
It's now a discontinued item, to be honest I wish it was discontinued ages ago considering how poorly it was supported.

This turns your PC into a full fledged wireless router!!
Now it works fine with my DS, Wii, PS3, and any other WiFi device I throw at it. Working perfectly at 24mbps wireless G. The only problem is you give up security because it only supports WEP in the above mode.
