    No it's not like actual internet. You just play with people worldwide.

    The DS can be connected to the internet using a wireless internet connection, whether from the Nintendo Wifi USB connector, a wireless router, or going to a compatible hotspot (public places with free wifi access.) Having internet access on the DS is mostly for games (such as Pokemon,) but if you have the Opera browser (comes as a DS cartridge, but was discontinued,) you can view some webpages. With the browser, you could connect to those websites with limited features (there's no flash capabilities, so viewing videos wouldn't be possible,) but without it the only internet access you can get is ingame playing on Wifi enabled games..

    Yes and its not as great as you would think Its called Nintendo DS Browser or Opera Browser, I forget. Either way, you can load any web page from the net on your DS, the only catch is that the DS (more like the browser) does not support video and/or audio playback.

    Myspace works flawlessly, You can access youtube if you want, but you cant watch videos... bummer huh?

    nintendo wifi only works for games but there is something you can buy that lets you use it to surf the web. i dont know how well it works though. i believe that either way you still need to be in range of a wifi signal

    if you buy the Nintendo DS Browser you can.

    but it does not support videos.

    and they don't sell it in stores anymore.
