    Probably been asked a thousand times but...

    Is there any way for the Wii to pick up a 802.11a signal to wirelessly connect to the internet?

    I ask because I've lost my ninty wi-fi dongle in my room, but have acquired a Intel® PRO/Wireless 5000 LAN Access Point which I have fully functioning.

    I don't think this question has been asked before.
    And i think as long is it sends out a wireless signal and your wii is somewhat nearby you can connect to it.

    No unfortunately. 802.11a is in the 5ghz range. Its FAR better than b/g but the Wii is B only.

    The AP you got is EOL so I hope you didnt pay much.

    eh?

    donchya mean b & g mr. ciper?

    xbox 360 is the only console which supports 802.11a....and a mighty fine
    protocol for media streaming it is too.

    the only problem with 802.11a is it's relative lack of "penetration" compared to
    802.11b/g...it simply will not sustain satisfactory data rates over distance.

    for wireless gaming, stick with 802.11g (not that you have much choice), or
    if you can stomach cabling, go for ethernet for reliable speed and security.

    nah, not really. 802.11a is as rare as rocking horse shit.

    802.11n and apparently a few others (when finalised) will be the de-facto
    wifi standard.

    when i used 802.11a for my 360, it was great not having interference from
    other wifi users.

    unfortunately, with the huge uptake of Sky's cheap broadband, the 802.11g
    (2.4Ghz) band is now looking seriously congested. you only have to do a quick
    site scan now to reveal at least 2 or 3 "new" Sky users in your vicinity.
