    ? "wifi adaptor"... you mean LAN adaptor?

    wireless is wifi. ?

    Wireless and LAN both have their advantages and disadvantages... you cant go wrong with either.

    (off-topic):sure, ill add u 2 in a min.

    (on-topic): as far LAN adapters go
    Datel (CodeJunkies) -USA-
    it uses the ethernet cord from a router or w/e and use it to hook wii up non-wirlessly, (which will give u faster internet connections since Wireless is allways slower than direct connections)

    thanks climb.speaking of the lan adapter, i was actually looking for one and couldnt find any so i went with the ds wifi usb adapter. When gaming on the wii goes online will it benefit me to get the lan adapter or with the wifi usb be "good enough"?

    i agree that LAN is better performance wise... if you can wired is better in that sense

    ohhh sorry *lowers head in shame*

    ok ok the wifi adapter... i've heard good things about it but my personal opinion (I got the wifimax once its about the same) is that these wifi adapters or "dongles" can be a pain. I suggest even a cheap wireless router.. they are less troublesome and "hairy" to set up. But if you dont really feel the need or want to go making up a wireless network... the dongle is for you. (just be warned you should know some wireless basics before you tackle using it, but wireless routers are pree no brainer and plug and play)

    hmm... i bought my wifimax from ebgames... i hooked it up n it didnt work out... so i took the open box with all the parts and reciept n they were real cool n gave back my money... You should do that, buy it, try it... if its bad return it. Eb where i live is cool like that at least.

    i tried for literally 9 hours trying to get my wii to work thru a router. Kept getting code after code after code,so i gave up. I went and bought the ds wifi adapter like the o.p was mentioning and have had ZERO problems with it. Just install the software plug in the usb and VIOLA! should have bought it to begin with instead of wasting a day wih the router!

    my gf said all along "just go buy the thing u need" but i had to much pride to just give up and take the easy way out...looking back I should have. Seriously it took like 2 mins to set up!
