    just relax, and don't double post :nono:. anyways,
    1. you can use it for other things, but you'll have to hack into the files provided on it. you can find a crash course for it somewhere on the net.
    2. it works if the connection you're using (DSL, Cable) is active. so if you turn off your computer, and that turns off your internet, then no. i rarely turn off my computer, so mine always works.

    don't be afraid to rep, its the scales.

    the nintendo version is made just to access nintendo products so yes nintendos will only support the wii/ds/ds lite unless you mess with it

    if you want another wifi usb that will support say laptops,stereos,etc ontop of a wii,ps3,ds, etc.. then try the wifi max i know best buy sells it just make sure they support the systems you have.. they have like 3 or 4 different ones out each have software to work with 2 or 3 systems... like psp/ps3/DS or DS/dslite/wii ect.. im sure you could find the software to support other systems if you have them through wifimax themself

    depends on where you are, my wiis up in my room, roughly 20 feet up, and its fine, but i usually play my ds right in front of it just in case. but its very strong, through walls, all that. once you get it working, its good.

    Yeh if you can afford it get a wireless router. I have the nintendo wifi adapter and its good but a wireless router would work better and be more reliable.

    Wireless router is the way to go these days. It will be a good investment trust me.

    It's on sale now, maybe not in June. I have had good luck with the WRT54G routers though.
