    I think that would be a really good idea making a dongle for the 3ds because then you could get updates all the time and browse the internet without a monthly fee :)

    If it worked well, then it would be great for connecting to WiFi and doing, say, WiFi battles on Super Smash Bros. or video chatting!

    So basically it's like a 3G device? How does it get a signal?

    I have no idea, but judging from this article, they improve the speed of the internet, and (possibly) increases how far away you can connect to the internet.

    Ah, I see. So it isn't a 3G device. I was thinking it would be like Verizon's Mifi device.

    Hmm I know phone companies do 3G dongles but you have to be careful with which one you're picking 'cause of the bad signal and range. My area is in-between two big valleys and the signal and even broadband is horrendous .

    That would be nice indeed, if not, maybe a 3rd party company could make a USB to 3DS connector that you could use to connect it to the 3ds?
