USB Ethernet adapter that works
I have just bought a USB to Ethernet that plugged in and worked with no problems using the wired option in settings.
Just wanted to share this with you as it was £5.85 (free P&P) from eb auction site.
New USB Internet LAN Network Adapter Connector For Wii
I have no involvement with the seller but just wanted to say that I wanted this one as it has a flying lead and wouldn't interfere with the USB drive socket as some might if I bought a stick like one.
It is also plugged into a 'Billion' mains ethernet box that connects via my mains system to the adsl router.
Not sure what my wireless speed was but this is subjectively faster.
I hope the mediators of the site are OK me posting this for everyone as I know that some can pay a lot of money for one of these.
I can now transfer files from my PC to Wii FAT32 partition, using FTPii at around 200KB/sec (using Filezilla). I know this isn't briliant but it is better than before.
Two things to look for
1. My hard drive has a sleep mode and FTPii will not mount it if it has gone to sleep, so I need to start it before running FTPii. Anything that kicks it into life is OK.
2. Still not found a way to map the USB drive in windows.
