    i would say get a nintendo brand just to make sure, you most likely can use another one, but it's $30 so go with one's that has been made for it

    The adapters you are talking about are meant to be recievers, not transmitters. You can make them work, but it can be complicated (you have to set it up so that the wired and wireless connections are linked together, and there isn't any software packaged with it to help you). I've never used the WiFiMAX before, but it is supposed to work for Wii (I've heard it has issues, though). The Nintendo one is really easy to use, I have used one of them before. The range is bad, but it's easy to use and it gets the job done.
    ... but what do I know?...
