    you can order one at nintendo.com for 34.99 but the range i heard was only 30-50 feet for there wifi usb adapter... and my computer is more than 50 feet from my Wii

    i picked up one at best buy not sure the brand ill find the box and let you know but its the same company that makes wifi usb for psp,Ds and every other system that supports wireless..

    the one i got came with software for the Wii/Ds lite worked within 50-100 feet range... it was 39.99 at best buy came in a white and grey box... not black and white like the PS and standard DS one does...

    it works great i notice very little to no lag took a whole 5 minutes to download and install... all you do is install the driver then when you want your Wii to pop online go to the icon and connect... downloads as fast as your internet will allow... you do need highspeed of some sort though DSL/Cable for it to work
    but then just turn it on and enjoy.. pretty dummy proof and the nice thing is it works with other wifi devices besides just nintendo systems you can run a laptop,stereo or any other wifi device off it for just 5 bucks more... so now all my songs on my computer can finnaly make there way to my stereos wifi reciever without use of a CD or memory stick... great buy easy to use and easy to setup in the Wii's internet settings...

    but like i said im not sure how good it is for speed overall someone hooked up to a home wireless network should clock it and ill see if i cant findout the speed of mine

    really the only difference is the nintendo one only supports the Wii were as the best buy version supports the Wii/DS lite and any other Wifi device so for 5 bucks more and no shipping time you get a real wifi network in your home which with the way electronics are these days you might as well have... cause pretty soon your fridge is gonna have to tell your computer what grocerys to order...lol might as well spend the extra 5 bucks and not wait on shipping...

    its this any good? i cant connect throught wireless..tried it all...how does this thing work???
    faster then wireless??
    Cant say if its faster than Wireless since I dont have a wireless router, but the ISB connector works great for me and works just as fast as my computer when Im on the Wii Browser.
