    What do yall prefer for the Nintendo Wii connection?

    Sup Wii owners! I have a major question for yall. What do you guys prefer to connect to the internet on the Wii, wireless or wired? You see, I have DSL SBC connection, 2WIRE. I am connected to the internet on the computer by that ethernet connection for it. I tried wireless for my Wii but that shit is slow ass hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Waited 30 minutes just to get on the Wii shop channel! So I was wondering if wired would be any better.

    My wireless works pretty fast. Is the router old? What brand/model is it?

    Wireless will always be slower than wired.
    A good example of this would be mine.
    I have a 6mb connection, which is pretty fast, when wired.
    But on my Wii, the wireless clocks a speed of about 2.4mb.

    So, if your wired connection is decent/average...expect your wireless speed to be lower than average.

    I have a 6mb connection too, and my wireless is 5.7mb, according to BroadbandReports.com, of course that was on a laptop, because the Wii doesnt support Java, and that is what is use at BroadbandReports.com.

    My Wii friends address book is full, but it is possible that I will add some more people, because I will be deleting grays in a few days. Thanks.

    My wireless router happens to be at 56MBs at average, it runs quite smoothly. But you know the saying, you get what you pay for.


    If I don't know you, and if I don't talk to you on the forums, don't send me a friend request. I won't add you and will not give you an explanation.

    My wireless is fast. Pages usually load within one to two seconds on the Wii.
