    u know the previous thread about "List of wii questions "?

    Well i am greatfully tahnk that you convinced me to buy the lan adapter.

    Now, this is my problem, i have a lan adapter and it coems with 5ft usb cable (useless for me becuase my router is at my dad's rooom.
    My wii is at the living room and its really far away from the router.
    and my internet usb is too short so my plan of changing back and forth is gone.

    Where can i buy really long usb cable for my wii o_O?

    Well, when you asked about online I said only buy the LAN adapter if your computer and Wii are within five feet of each other.

    I am not sure if there is a longer cord, hopefully someone knows different.

    Well for me, I have Ether throughout the walls of my home :) Jack in every room. But yes as for a Lan Adapter, if you want, Ethernet (Unshielded) cables can travel for 100ft without bleeding off signal. So its still an option maybe :p.

    If you use the built in wireless for the Wii, or buy a USB LAN (Wired) adapter, if so I would recommend This. It is literally Plug and Play, just goto settings and select wired connection once you attach the LAN adapter with an active Ethernet cable. :thumbsup: (It's that simple if you use DHCP that is.) But keep in mind, you may need to tweak the last steps a bit, if your home network is diffrent.

    I am assuming that your dad doesn't have a wireless router, they can be bad but it depends what brand you have. I have a linksys wireless one and I keep hearing bad things about it but I never been disconnected or kicked out of a game or anything like that, it goes pretty fast with me too. So if you don't want the hassle of having cables everywhere then tell your dad to buy a wireless router, belkin works good too.

    bestbuy is expensive. if you can make your own, go to home depot. if you want to buy go to www.newegg.com or www.tigerdirect.com

    DO NOT buy USB extensions, they are way too expensive.

    +1 on buying the cables from Newegg. I've bought tons of things from them, and they're great. The prices are WAY cheaper than any stores, especially Worst Buy (I hate that place with a passion).

    Though, I'd just go with a wireless router rather than running a 50+ foot cable through my house (well, apartment in my case). The cost of a cable plus LAN adapter would be about the same as a good wireless router (the Linksys WRT54G is great at $50), but you don't have the pesky cables running everywhere. My connection has been just as stable and fast with my wireless router (the aforementioned Linksys) as with the Nintendo LAN adapter I used to use.

    yes it will work. it connects to your computer. basically your computer will be the "wireless router" (in short terms). your computer has to be on in order for it to work.

    Ummm...where do you shop for cables? Did you even check the linked websites. You can get 50 cables for about $10.

    Actually, I went and did the work for you. It took a whole 30 seconds. Here's a 50 foot cable for $10.49 with the cost of shipping ($5.49 for the cable, $5 for shipping).

    Wow. That was a hell of a challenge.

    You also have the option of name brand Cat 6 cable for a $1 more.


    Don't go with the USB Wifi adapter. It's junk. I've heard things about it being discontinued. Plus, it's a HUGE waste of electricity as you have to have your computer on to use it. If you're going to go wireless, you might as well just get a wireless router. The Linksys WRT54G is great and only costs $50, which is only $10 more than the cheesy USB dongle thing. Plus, with a router you can use other devices wireless, such as laptops and whatnot.
