Are you sure your wifi router doesn't require a password, and if it does are you entering the correct password on your DS/Wii?

Some wifi routers are just not that good, for some reason, it may be that yours is sub-par.

I cant get my nintedno ds to connect to my router

The problem may be your security settings. The Wii and PSP can access WiFi no matter what the security settings are if you have the key, but the DS can't access highly encrypted WEP security. Double check your security settings and then re-input your code.

Ds lite connection

Have you considered changing your router from WPA to WEP? That would solve your problem with getting your DS online, although it would reduce the security of your home network. But some security is better than none. As far as the WiFi Max dongle, that's just a simple version of a wireless router and since you already have one it's kind of redundant. You might want to put it up on E-Bay and see if you can make some of your money back.
