    Wii ethernet adaper

    How many of you (who do not have a wii yet) are mad at Nitendo for not telling us (in the instruction manual or otherwise) what chipset the ethernet adapter uses? After all, it's just a branded adapter.

    Or at the very least, post a list of compatible adapter that you can buy at a retail store (such as Best Buy).

    The chipsets that I know of are:

    KLSI KL5USB1013
    Pegasus/Pegasus-II
    Realtek 8150
    ASIX AX88xxx
    GeneSys GL620USB-A
    NetChip 1080
    Prolific PL-2301/2302
    MosChip MCS7830
    ALi M5632
    AnchorChips 2720

    Yeah, it kinda sucks how there isn't much info about the ethernet adapter at all. I've been waiting on the adapter since i bought my wii. I have the end of an ethernet cable sitting next to my wii ready to be plugged in, so it wouldn't really make much sense to buy a new router when all i need is a simple adapter.

    I guess all we can do is hope that the adapter is released soon.
