Since I don't have internet hooked up to my Wii yet, and have attempted to do it numerous times with horrible results, I am thinking of resorting to the Nintendo USB adapter. But I have a few questions, first.
1. What is the range on the connection it broadcasts? My computers are upstairs on the second floor of my house while my Wii is in the basement almost directly underneath the computers. And is it very reliable? Like, does it create a fast connection?
2. Does the internet connection broadcast directly out of the USB adapter that you plug into the computer, making it so if it's closer to the Wii, you'll have a better connection? If so, would getting a 100ft (maybe less) USB extender cable to run down my two flights of stairs to get the adapter as close to the Wii as possible be worth it and/or a smart idea? I would just have to roll it up and return it to my computer room while never unplugging it from my computer after every time I'd play online. I know it would be a lot of work, but in my opinion, it would definitely be worth it.
I just need some outside opinions. Thanks!
