This might help you?
I am looking at getting an Access Point for my network at home so I can use the wifi feature on the wii and also so I can roam with my laptop. Any ideas on what is good? Should I go for the 54mb/s (which is fine for my laptop) or the 108mb/s (does the wii even support this speed?)?
Not really. I am looking more at getting a wifi access point at this stage as I already have a router. However, I've been doing some research and a lot of people are having trouble with the Nintendo DS's wifi and using Access Points. I'll keep looking into it, otherwise I'll follow your/threads suggestion and just go for a new network.
Anyone know what speed wifi the wii is going to have (11/54/108mbps)?
I'we been setting up a few wireless networks at work and for some friens and I can tell you that Buffalo acess points are the best, I'we tried D-link, A-link and Zyxel but those are total crap.
Oh yeah, almost forgot.
The official Nintendo Wi-fi USB adapter sold is actually a Buffalo adapter so using Buffalo would in my opinion be the best choice.
Its 54Mb "g"Originally Posted by Andrakis_Scarr
Go for any name brand 802.11b/g capable router. I've used several Netgear wireless routers and they're alright. The best are Cisco, but you're going to pay for them. Right now the one I have at home is an Apple Airport Express base station and it works flawlessly most of the time. When it starts giving problems I just give it a quick reboot. If I had it all to do over again I'd get the Cisco, but I a technology geek.
#1 on the list for a Wii
Buffalo is the right way to go
shouldnt any of the approved wifi routers on the ds site work for the wii
The more consumer friendly Cisco products are sold under the "Linksys" brand.Originally Posted by white89gt
The ones recommended for the DS were "B" routers. The Wii will be compatible with the much faster "G" standard. Some of the routers recommended for the DS may support the full speed of the Wii, some may not. Look for the ones that are G compatible.Originally Posted by dds
