    Wifi USB Connector for NDS, will it work with Wii?

    Hi!

    I recently bought the Nintendo Wifi USB Connector to have my NintendoDS access the internet. It's cool because it's easy and less expensive than a wireless router.

    Has Nintendo confirmed that it would work for the Wii too? It would be a smart move, my Wii would have access to the internet one minute after I take it out of the box

    ---- EDIT -----

    ANSWER:
    Yes it works, it just requires the latest driver update.

    I just read that article and I'm a bit confused. If you have that adapter you still need a router?

    Nope. All you need is a connection to the internet (preperably broadband, im not sure if dial-up will work or not) and a Nintendo Wifi USB cable (around 25)

    sources would be good.. what is the article you were refering to Mickey?

    Because even if they use the same 802.11 wifi standard, it doesn't mean the softwares can talk to each other. (Ex: Your email program and your QuakeIII game both communicate on the internet through your ethernet cables, but that doesn't mean they can talk to each other).

    Technically it's possible to have the Wii work with the Wifi USB Connector IF:
    1. The Wii has been designed to do so.
    2. The software for the USB Connector had been designed (or updated) to do so.

    We'll have to keep our fingers crossed until we have an official confirmation

    You have it right and wrong at the same time. You are right in saying that all 802.11b/g signals are the same. The problem is, the WFC adapter doesn't send out 802.11b/g signals. It uses a Nintendo-proprietary signal, only the DS (and I'm sure the Wii, so let's just say "Nintendo products") can use it. If you notice when you set up the DS wireless connection, you have to follow completely different procedures to connect to the USB adapter than to a WiFi network. However, even though there is the technical difference, I'm sure the Wii will be able to use it.
    ... but what do I know?...
