Is there something I can buy that connects to my desktop's USB port and transmits a wireless signal? Or maybe even something that connects directly to my router? I'd like to avoid switching to a wireless router.

Whoa. Wait a minute. If you're trying to convert your wired router to wireless, what I've suggested probably won't help you. I apologize. The router and computer will both need wireless capabilities. It's usually cheaper to get a wireless router than to add wireless access to a wired router.

No, I think what you first said is right. I need something that works like the Nintendo Wifi USB Connector but for all my wireless devices (mainly my laptop).
