    HAHAHAHA this is soo funny

    u know the previous thread about "List of wii questions "?

    Well i am greatfully tahnk that you convinced me to buy the lan adapter.

    Now, this is my problem, i have a lan adapter and it coems with 5ft usb cable (useless for me becuase my router is at my dad's rooom.
    My wii is at the living room and its really far away from the router.
    and my internet usb is too short so my plan of changing back and forth is gone.

    Where can i buy really long usb cable for my wii O_o?

    Well, when you asked about online I said only buy the LAN adapter if your computer and Wii are within five feet of each other.

    I am not sure if there is a longer cord, hopefully someone knows different.

    Well for me, I have Ether throughout the walls of my home Jack in every room. But yes as for a Lan Adapter, if you want, Ethernet (Unshielded) cables can travel for 100ft without bleeding off signal. So its still an option maybe .

    If you use the built in wireless for the Wii, or buy a USB LAN (Wired) adapter, if so I would recommend This. It is literally Plug and Play, just goto settings and select wired connection once you attach the LAN adapter with an active Ethernet cable. (It's that simple if you use DHCP that is.) But keep in mind, you may need to tweak the last steps a bit, if your home network is diffrent.

    I am assuming that your dad doesn't have a wireless router, they can be bad but it depends what brand you have. I have a linksys wireless one and I keep hearing bad things about it but I never been disconnected or kicked out of a game or anything like that, it goes pretty fast with me too. So if you don't want the hassle of having cables everywhere then tell your dad to buy a wireless router, belkin works good too.
