    usb network adaptor?

    hi i have recently got myself a wii and have softmodded it.
    i am having a bit of bother using my wifi connection which is a wifi dongle in my pc so have decided to get a usb network adaptor for the wii.
    my question is will the network card work in the other usb slot when i am using my hdd to play games?

    why are you using any extra wireless adapters for the wii. it has it's own built in wifi.

    ok i don't understand.you are using your wii to connect to the pc's internet. which is a usb dongle? why don't you just use a wireless router, it is easier to set up and can connect multiple devices.

    i have a wired router going to my pc and ps3 and it works well. so i don't really have the need to use a wireless router.

    will the network adaptor work with my hdd plugged in for games?

    yea not sure if that will work or not someone here may know. but i'm willing to bet the adapter will cost as much as a wireless router which will work just fine and still have the wired ports you need for you other stuff. work smart not hard

    The USB dongle does the exact same thing as a Wireless router, it sends out a signal from your Wired connection. Basically it shares your internet connection. Yes your wii should be able to find the signal and use it. So you can use that but Oddgriffin is right, if you can get a wireless router its the same price and it has Wired ports built in it! So you can actually use it like a wired router and have just wifi on your wii. It is up to you though.

    Hope this answered your question and any concerns you have.

    indeed i am talking about the LAN adapter. the wifi dongle was working on the wii but decided to stop letting me go online with it. the wii would find it as an access point but wouldn't connect to it.

    as my current LAN router has worked without a hitch i am not prepared to fork out more money on a wireless router which i believe will be inferior to a wired connection anyway.

    the adapter is only £10 and i doubt i could find a decent wireless router for that price.

    Oh ok. The Wii lan adapter is a lot better then the nintendo wii Wifi Usb Connector. I had it, paid $40. That was a waste of money!
