    List of inexpensive network adatpers compatible with the Wii

    If you are active in the Wii forums you probably heard of the Kinemax adapter that NewEgg used to sell. Unfortunately NewEgg now sells an updated model that doesn't work

    I started searching around for other adapters with the same chipset and found a list of tested adapters!

    Thanks should go out to the WiiLi project.

    Here is another example of why modchips are a good thing.

    I came across the same site--though I took the scenic route to get there. It's a great resource.

    I've been thinking of hardwiring everything recently.

    My Wii is literally 1 inch away from my router (the router is on the UPS by the TV) but I will still use wireless. My internet connection maxes out at 3MB/s but on a single connection I have never seen more than 200k per second (torrents dont count). Even with a bad signal wireless will always be faster than the internet connection.

    me too.

    rather than run ethernet inside the wall cavity, i've decided to get
    a couple of those "home plug" networking over the mains adaptors.

    i'll connect my router (connected to the modem) upstairs and then
    another router (as a switch) downstairs and connect the Wii and
    modded xbox to it. it'll leave 1 spare ethernet port for when i get
    the elite.

    Check benchmarks before buying. Many of the ethernet over powerline adapters are slower than 802.11b!

    yeah, i've seen them. there are also some "newer" ones which offer
    (reportedly) upto 85Mbps whcih tbh, will be plenty fast enough for
    my useage.

    if they do turn out to be crap, i'll take 'em back and run ethernet
    down the wall. the only reason i'm putting ethernet off at the mo'
    is because i'm just out of cast (ruptured achilles tendon) so i'm
    having a little bit of trouble with mobility!!

    That's actually nice to know, when I was looking into a powerline network, the only ones I saw were slow as molasses.

    wiinter, i don't know where you're located, but have a look at the
    following URL from a site i use on a regular basis in the UK.

    the 85Mbps are a bit pricey, but they now have them available "upto"
    200Mbps.

    For my part, it's more about latency, data sync, and lost data--that is, video streaming. I've got my freevo located a fair distance from my 54g router (low to very signal), and although it streams better than it probably should, there are sometimes stutters. I figure, as long as I'm wiring the server, I may as well wire the Wii (which serves as my living room freevo portal via TVersity) too. Cabling is cheap, and if I'm going to crawling around in the attic anyway, what's another 10 minutes?

    I actually had seen those netgears on ebay, but I didn't realize they boasted those speeds. Thanks for info. That puts those back on my radar. It adds some portability too--no matter where you move, you can take it with you without having to rewire. Not a lot of houses come prewired with cat5e. Probably not international portability though, I bet voltage converters would render them useless.
