    I have a wireless router , problem being, i cant conenct to wifi with me DS or DS lite, Its very secured, and i know i can change all this in the router set up etc, but does the wiiconnect 24 work the same as wifi? or is it more complex?
    Because ive connected to my router on my psp, by just enetering the wep code.
    And, The amount of computers connecting to one router doesmt matter does it? Because we got five laptops connected , and four main computers. Were gonna get a server in the office upstairs eventually, and connect through the server, in this case, will i be able to connect to wiiconnect via the server ?

    Enoch was right.

    You should reconfigure your LAN, adding a switch to everything that's locallized and then daisy chain your modem/wireless router into one of the ports.

    The reason behind this is that switches are entirely hardware based- there is no intermittent layer of software to muck things up.

    Granted, this doesn't give you the ability to partition your LAN by domain restriction or any of the other frills you get with a router, but where a switch accels at is being tremendously fast, allowing full duplex connections on all ports simultaneously, despite how much stress you're putting on your network.

    After doing this, you'll be able to either patch your Wii in through your wireless connection(it can not only connect to other wireless devices but can also act as an Ad-hoc wireless router for the DS and possibly PSP).


    As far as the ethernet adapter is concerned, a common USB to Ethernet adapter will suffice, as this is all Nintendo's adapter is.

    Here's one from NewEgg for $14: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833156133

    Oh, I forgot to mention, that in a price point comparison, the official Nintendo converter will be between $20 and $40... not exactly a bargain.
