this problem is slowly dirving me insane. im online and everything is good, but i want to get my wii online at my friends house. im there every weekend beating him up on the wii.
problem is, he does not have a pc. and the wii cant find an access point. i have spent some 30 odd hours looking for solutions to get online over there. everything that looks promising requires the use of a pc.........antennas that have to go to a pc or be hardwired to the wii (im NOT gonna try to hardwire a bigger antenna on my wii). same thing with repeaters, gotta use a pc.
im looking at two ways to do it, but i just dont know if it will work.
the first...a wireless router will produce an access point even if not connected to a pc, you just cant connect to it of course. BUT what if i attach the cantenna to it?? (commercial version of the pringles can antenna)
the cantenna may pick up the access points and be sent out along with the routers access point that isnt connected.
the second...i have HIGH hopes for this one. the wii wireless card is only like a 2db gain. i found what they call a passive wifi antenna on ebay, its 8db. you do NOT connect it to anything. it has two ends, one to recieve and one to transmit. according to the auction, all you gotta do is set the transmitting end near the wii, and the recieving end in the direction of a hot spot.
here is the link to this antenna. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll..._promot_widget
please give me some input, if you know if these options will work or not, or if you have a better idea.........im ALL EARS. im running out of ideas and sanity trying to get this done
thanks in advance.
