What's a cheap wireless router I can get that will work with the Wii right out of the box?
What is cheap? 50?
i had a belkin at one point for 30$ that i got at BJs whole sale (Berkly and Jenson)
Awww, I used to have one of those wholesale warehouses around where I live, I remember that is where I got my PS2, they closed down around me for some reason though
Anyway, I used to have a belkin Wi-Fi router myself, I had nothing but problems, I got a linksys and gave the belkin to my sister, I tried connecting my Wii to it once and I couldn't get it to work
I think the cheapest thing is to get a plain wireless access point and plug that into a computer or a wired router, there is a WAP that my networking lab instructor uses that is pretty small, and if you get a connection problem, you could always move the WAP to somewhere else
I picked up a Belkin router for £30 (uk), its bottom end but does the job on the Wii fine, lacks a bit of functionality for PC use however (port forwarding etc. is a bit limited). Seeing as the LAN adaptors for the Wii I've seen are about £20 its worth the extra £10 to save cables lying around!
I'd suggest the Buffalo router...It was specially designed to work with the Nintendo DS really easily, so I'd assume that it'd work well with the wii. Last time I checked, it was £90 ... So that's what? $160??
my netgear works great. has done from day one. although it may be a tad expensive.
I paid 35$ (CAD) for my D-Link WBR-1310 v.D
It works great, but I heard (after i got the router), thank D-Link Wireless Routers are crap
But so far, I had no problem with it
I got a Belkin at my local wal mart for $34 and it works great so far.
it's not that the buffalo router is specially designed for the DS, the games for the DS are specially coded to work for AOSS, buffalo routers come with AOSS deafult, so the AOSS feature will help with linking them together, the same AOSS feature also works on computers
whats the best router for wii?
If you guys want a good deal on router, check this deal now
Anyone think this will work?
Might work, great proce for a router so far, but if you use remote desktop or do any sort of torrenting (like I do), I would highly siggest you don't get a BELKIN brand router, their port forwarding is very poor and you might get a lot of errors (well, I was never about to do any of that over it), if you use port 80 most the time though, the router can forward port 80 pretty nice, I had some problems connecting my Wii to my BELKIN (now gave to my sister), but some people have got them working, so you might have a good experience with it
I got a cheep wireless linksys router for 25 bucks at a pawn shop, i guess that dousnt help you though. But it works perfect for my Wii, and Xbox.
I got a D-link router at best buy for like $40. Sometimes it bugs out and just doesn't work, but overall its a decent router.
And I used a Windows Server 2003 router, no joke, just wasn't wireless, well, it was a computer with a whole bunch of etherent cards that was set up to route
And even though Linux can be set up to run as a router, I doubt that is what you have, I think you mean you have a Linksys wireless router, Linux is an open source operating system
I have a linksys router too, good routers
Oh you are correct, my apologies. It is a Linksys. I always get them mixed up.
A good way to remember that is linksys has the word "link" in it, like an link to the internet:thumbsup:
I bought a Linksys at Radio Shack but it was like $70. Works great though.
