Anyone know what protocol DS' use to communicate with eachother? Is it different from what they use on-line?

I'm hoping they 802.something. I'm hoping it would be possible to pick up the signal from a DS using a wifi dongle on a PC or suchlike, and then send the packets down a VPN tunnel to a similar setup, allowing non-WiFi games like Advance Wars, Meteos and Zookeeper to be played over t'internet.

Anyone know if this is possible, or has even been tried? (Must have surely..)

Oh that's interesting - ta.

I was hoping it could be done without special code, but this suggests not.

If anyone here uses one of those PC DS WiFi dongles or has a card, and knows how to use Ethereal or somesuch sniffer, I'd love to know if you can pick up anything from the DS, and what protocol it turned out to be.
