I'm trying to get a DS lite connected to my university's wifi, which I learned doesn't broadcast a Wireless-b signal, which a DS needs to connect. Can I setup a my own router connected to an ethernet port, configure it to boardcast wireless-b and get on wifi through that? I asked another forum which said yes, but I want to make sure before I buy anything.

If you have a cable connection to the router then you can connect an AP or router to that cable and connect your DS. Most APs and wireless routers are backward compatible so you shouldnt have a problem.
But if you do use a router be sure to configure it correctly.
Its that easy!
