    I would stick to the nintendo product because when it comes to network adapters, there is no gurantee that things will be compatible.

    Oh my god, Does anyone really know anything about computer hardware over here?????
    If you go and buy a USB-LAN adapter you need to get the Nintendo one or one that is exactly the same product labelled with another brand.

    The thing is Nintendo is NOT a majour OS manufacturer like Micro$oft who works with all the hardware manufacturers and get drivers for their products pre-installed into their operating system.

    Nintendo does not have drivers for all the USB-LAN dongles in the world and therefore most likely the only one that will work is the Nintendo branded or others using the same USB chip and LAN chip inside the dongle. and there is no way to install any drivers into the Wii so forget about those second party adapters.

    I know the one i got doesn't need any drivers. Plus nintendo hasn't said anything about their ethernet kit. We have no idea when it is going to be out so i will take my chances with the one i got. And if it doesn't work then i will get nintendo's, whenever the heck it actually comes out.

    THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "NEEDS NO DRIVERS" what that phrase means is that WindowsXP already has preinstalled unified drivers for certain hardware setups that it will use for your device.

    If you check the device specs you will see that it works on XP and newer operating systems but if you want to use it for an older system like windows98 or 95 you need to download drivers if they are available since those dont come with preinstalled drivers.
