    That is incorrect, well, it is correct, all routers from Linksys to Apple's Airport will connect to anything with a 802.11B/G/A network card/connection, the Nintendo Wi-Fi dongle is different though, it is only compatible with Nintendo products, if it was compatible with anything Wi-Fi compatible, I would buy thousands of them.

    The Nintendo Wi-Fi is compatible with the Wii, but I would highly suggest to go with a wireless router, while they are more expensive, they work with everything with a Wi-Fi card, if you get the Nintendo Wi-Fi dongle, it won't be compatible with computers or other consoles and handhelds like the PSP or XBOX 360

    Yes it works, It does for me, Just connect your Wii like you do to your DS, it works the same way.

    Do you think it is only a matter of software restrictions? The hardware itself could be compatible with anything, but Nintendo locks it with their software driver, to avoid royalty fees I guess. So in theory someone could write another driver for it and we would have a cheap Wi-Fi access point.

    It's the same thing with the DVD playback of the Wii, the hardware is there, but Nintendo blocked the playback of DVDs to avoid royalty fees. So again someone could hack an hombrew firmware update to allow DVD playback on the Wii.

    I think it's more than likely an idea of Nintendo's to offer an "unlock" feature to add DVD support once the Wii is properly established. Of course this "unlock" will come in the form of a Wii channel, no doubt chargeable.

    I think it will be a channel, but to make it more easy, and make it more popular, it might be a free download and you can just run it free, with no paying.

    Who knows where we go from here. Certainly not me..
