    Internet Connection Speed

    i am greatly looking foreward to the online gaming on the wii, and my wii is currently connected to the internet by a DS Wifi thing...but i dont know if that will be fast enough to experience good online gaming without significant lagging. i was just wondering what exactly is the speed of the wifi connector and how badly it would affect my online gaming experience.

    i also wanted to know what was a good, average speed for gaming that wouldnt cost too much (i would have to go get the wireless adapters for the other 4 computers in my house)

    thx

    as of right now they do not have online gaming with the wii. I think the first game is coming out soon. Your online speed depends on what type connection you have coming into your house. Check and post the connection plan you have

    Do not get a D-link it screws up when connected to the Wii and DS it makes everything go slow including other computers on the network.

    The my router is the NetGear Rangemax Wireless MIMO Router it shot my speed from 50kbs to 700kbs. I never lag on my DS, Wii, or 360. It is sweet. Its 79.99 at bestbuy. I was told the best one is the Rangemax Next Draft-N router its the same company and its 6x times faster than the MIMO. Its 129.99 at bestbuy.

    I have the USB connector too, and I use it all the time on my DS. It has never lagged on me, and I love it. The problem is I don't know if it will work as well on the wii as it does on the DS.

    Please add me and PM if you do

    thats exactly what i was thinking...but i doubt that it would be alright. its perfectly fine for surfing but online play is a completly different thing...and i just dont know about that small device doing the job

    the only brands that i see on bestbuy canada are Belkin, D-Link, Linksys, and Trendnet.

    d-link and linksys seem to have the biggest variety of speeds and prices but since d-link is junk...i wonder about linksys

    anyone had any of these brands work well for them?
