    Any wireless router will work really it's just a wireless adapter inside the Wii just like in a computer. I personally use a Netgear and it worked perfect.

    ivandb: I am aware of the hercules Wi-Fi stick, and I've considered it, but it seems a wireless access point is a more solid investment for me as it takes the work of wi-fi away from the server which is pretty stressed already as it is.

    Didn't Nintendo release a list of Compatable wireless networks?

    If it's on there get it :)

    I'm sure Wii.com might have something about compatibility if there is any problem

    true statement ivandd, I'm glad it works fine for you, but I'm not sure it's the best solution for me as my server is pretty stressed already.

    Not you Pluto 2 read the quote....

    If 4 have been posted as non compatible routers then you shouldn't purchase one of those routers... good start?

    so you are saying anything else will work? Doesn't sound like it if you regard how many users there is that are having problems with different brands and models.

    Not saying anything else will work, lets keep this in mind. The system is still kind of new and will have bugs and problems that Nintendo is un-aware of. Just like any other new hardware it's a trial and error basis. If it works it works, but if they know that the posted routers do not work then you at least know that much right?
