    Does the wii u support adhoc connection for internet play?

    Would i be able to go online with the wii u, from a ad hoc connection from my laptop to browse the shop or play online?
    Thanks, just wondering because if it doesn't i would need to buy a router or Ethernet adapter if it doesn't support ad-hoc.

    If your laptop is performing the functions of a router and the Wii U can connect to it with a proper gateway configured so it can access the net outside of your LAN, then I don't see why it wouldn't work. As long as your laptop looks like and acts like a router to the Wii U, the Wii U won't know it's not connecting to a true router.

    Yeah but, what i mean on my windows 7 i open up network and sharing center, then click manage wireless network settings, add, then choose create a ad-hoc network with wep security type.
    I just want to make sure it works before i buy the Wii u. if someone could try it out and let me know i would be very thankful. I could connect my ipod and xbox, but i can't connect my psp because it uses a ad-hoc network to link other Psp's for ad-hoc play.

    Do you have to do anything different with your iPod and Xbox over normal to get it working? Or do they see your laptop as a proper router and things just work?

    I doubt anyone will test this, as very few people (I can count the number of people I know who do this on zero fingers) uses ad-hoc. You'll have to try it out for yourself. But Wii U wouldn't do what a PSP attempts to do with local multiplay via ad-hoc, so if your xbox and iPod can connect using normal connections, then I think the Wii U should.

    Things just seem to work, well, i guess you answered my questions thanks alot. if it fails to connect ill just shed a couple bucks for a wireless router, thanks man. Update Yeah it worked with a program. i used connectify to make it work, because the original create an adhoc network gave me connect issues on the wii u.
