    Wii WiFi speeds.

    I just wonder what sort of speeds you guys are getting updates and browsing with your Wii's via the wifi connection. I seem to be having some troubles. For example the updates to the console took like 7 minutes each (is that normal?). When I do a speed test through the browser Im being reported a speed the is equal to about ISDN even though the wii is next to the router (for testing) and I have a 8/1 ADSL line. It seems when I load a large picture into the browser from some webpage that the starts loading fast but instantly slows for some reason I dont understand. Using a laptop with wireless (not on at the same time as I test the wii) I get full bandwidth over the wireless connection (on the same speed test) so I know its not the router acting up.

    Some feedback on this could be helpfull as to the speeds people are getting with the Wii's wifi connection using the internet browser to some speed test site.

    I believe the speed should be pretty equal to what we get from our laptops. Since the wireless chip in the WII is a 54g chip. So we should be getting around 22mbps.

    Nah, it's slower for some reason. Must just be the nature of the best or the browser or something. Downloads do great for me, but the web browser seems slow. I don't plan on sitting around and browsing the net for hours on my Wii anyways, kinda pointless.

    How long did it take for a single firmware update?

    Make sure you are using a clear channel on your WiFi router. My Wii gets updates relatively quickly.

    Some channels which bear noise will appear to have high signal strength but your performance will still suck because of error correction.

    What I need is some sort of time scale.... Maybe some people can try the following url in the opera browser and report back the speed result. The actual speedtest is the yellow link half way down the page (Its in Sweden btw).

    http://speedtest.raketforskning.com

    From what I see happening on mine, the test starts quickly but slows quite much as the blue progress bar reaches the end for some reason.
