    Hi!

    I'm new to the wii and are doing some planning before purchasing it.
    One thing I don't get is whatever the Wii can connect to the Internet through
    a standard 802.11G USB Stick? One such as NetGear USB 2.4GHz 54Mbps INT (WG111IS) / 802.11g/b.
    I realize this isn't an "access point" but I have NAT software running on the computer, couldn't I just nat the internet connection to the usb stick aswell or would this be impossible? I consider wireless routers abit pricey as I have no other use for them apart from the Wii what so ever.

    So it's absolutely impossible to achive this with a "normal" usb stick 802.11g network interface?

    Have you verified that the product you recommended from hercules WORKS with WII 100%? not slow etc
