    You were talking about using a wired laptop and a wifi card, you know you can just plug the laptop into your internet near your wii, then plug in the nintendo wi-fi dongle to your laptop, that way your closer to the wii because I doubt the dongle is going to work where your current computer is located, it only has a range of 30 feet and that diminishes the more walls the signal has to go through.

    Ah good idea, but I dont have a laptop. Could use a friends though I guess. I dont really see why the Wii cant connect to a wireless card in a PC to connect to the net, but thats probably why I still dont have wireless eh

    Anyway, dongle comes tomorrow. It's not the official nintendo one, but a Linksys thingy so it'll be interesting to see if it works.

    If not, hell I'm just gonna have to wait for the LAN adapter heh

    what does this linksys dongle do? Got any links or info? I can tell you whether or not it will work.

    Well I looked a bit and I can't find any linksys usb dongle's that actually send out an internet connection, you sure your mate isn't just sending you a usb wireless card?

    Ah I lied, it's a DLink Dongle thing. Been hella busy past week but I'm gonna give it a go today and see if I can get my Wii on the interweb.

    By the way, as a side note, bought a 1GB mini SD card a couple of days ago too. Figured I could use it for my phone and stick films on it for the Wii (with an adapter of course). I was hella shocked to find out a 700mb xvid/avi turns into a pretty shoddy 2gb or more mjpeg or w/e silly codec the Wii uses.

    Damn, they better release an update with support for more file types!! Or if the Wii could netowork with your PC some way : ) now wouldnt that be nice. To be honest, the more I play with it the more Apple Mac it feels. Never a bad thing

    It's a little bit more of an elaborate and techy setup, but extending your wifi presence with a more powerful antenna may be what would really help you out - haven't tried it, but the article below shows you how to do it. Looks pretty interesting...

    Cheers dude, dont think i'll be ripping my Wii apart though, not my cuppa tea and it doesnt look like it's too worth it!!

    Nah it looks like i'll just wait for the LAN adapter to hit the shelves before i get my Wii online. Or I might risk it and go for a wifi max and hope to god it works heh
