Windows 7: Should I get a Wireless USB router?

Should I get a Wireless USB router?

I was wondering to myself in Wal-Mart if I should get myself one of those USB routers for my Nintendo DSi, PSP and laptop computer. I mean I would love to have one so i can use the browsers in them and for updating/online gaming. but at the same time I think that since I have dial up it would be a waste of money to buy something that SHOULD be used on a cable/satellite connection. I was wondering if I could get your opinion on the matter, cause I can't come up with an answer myself.

Hello Kit,
I think it would be a waste of money you would gain no improvement in speed and you will not be able to do more than you can now.
