    we ALL want this..........pelican to make an attachment for the wii, maybe to plug into the usb port..............a super duper wifi antenna to pick up access points miles away.

    think of it, those of us who cant afford high speed and routers...........we would be able to go online without it. i personally spent a FORTUNE and many man hours getting my wii online.

    even say a 3 mile distance would be great...........i have dozens of free access points within a mile of my home, but my wii antenna just dont have the power.

    plus think of this........PORTABLE wii online. take the wii and antenna to a friends house.........if he cant go online, NO PROBLEM.

    wii owners need to push for this........not that hard of a piece of technology to develope and put out...........and the thing would sell out QUICK.

    let me know what you think..............my friend code can be seen to your left, let me know in your reply if you added me and ill do the same.

    i said it once, ill say it again.........FREE PORTABLE WIFI FOR ALL!!!

    Over-use of '........' ;)

    Think of the legal issue's though if they release a device like this..

    Um...a super duper wifi antenna? It already exists it's called wireless broadband. And even if you have some kind of antenna for the Wii the range is probably still going to be limited to the 802.11g standard that the Wii Console uses. :prrr:

    Sounds cool.
    I have high speed with a router already though.
    No problem here but I can see why you're excited.

    well it would HAVE to be better than the pissy antenna in the wii.........hell those access points are less than a mile away and i still cant pick them up.

    just a miles range or so, thats all wii ask

    oh yea, and right back at ya:prrr:

    Why don't you just install an outdoor high-gain WiFi antenna and feed that signal to a local WiFi repeater in your house.

    Messing around with your Wii might void your warranty.

    all trouble makers will be reported. and BY the way..........i COULD do an outdoor and a repeater and all that, just like i did the high speed and router.........some people dont take the time to READ.

    this post is intended for those people who have no wireless experience or who cant aford all the trimmings to get their wii online

    I did read the post.... It's just bad. The problem isn't picking up the signal, radios could do it in the 40's...It's the point putting it out. Your best bet in the middle of nowhere is the super expensive ev-do or edge service....

    Don't forget that the wireless signal from the router has to be pretty strong. Most signals could barley make it out of the house and across the street.

    well only a month or so of doing this and im still new. i AM online with my wii at my house, a big step forward since i had no CLUE how to go wireless a month ago. but i want it online at my friends house...........from what i can see, antenna's and repeaters require you have a pc. he still does not have cable tv much less a pc.

    there has GOT to be a way to pick up those access points near by and re-broadcast them. or like i said, some kind of powerful antenna that may plug into the wii.

    I have an alternative to the OP and anyone interested. Get a WRT54G and install the 3rd party firmware to turn it into a bridge.

    I did this exact same thing years ago to connect my PS2 and Tivo to my neighbors wireless that lived quite a ways down the street.

    If you are interested I suggest HyperWRT + Thibor http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=135

    if you already have a high speed connection connected to a router through an ethernet cable, your already there almost.............just a few steps away. i have SYMPATHY for anyone trying to get online desperately.

    im still very new to the forums, but if you can, try to pvt msg me and ill see about helping.

    An attachment that can pick up from a mile?

    Heck, you're better off just getting a plain old wireless G router.

    'Cause goodness knows how much it would cost.

    Pelican is not an WiFi company, you should really consult some of the companies that specialise in hi-gain outdoor antenna:


    Try this one:
