    this is for anyone that uses The Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. i am wondering if this thing is worth getting or it is better off spending those $40 bucks towards a wireless router. i really wanna know what the connection is like for Mario Strikers Charged,battalion wars 2, and Guitar Hero III. i have been reading about so many people having problem with connection problems and such with these games online i wanna know how this thing runs on the internet.let me hear all your pro's and con's. your feedback will be much appreciated!

    i'd say just buy a wireless router because it will work for computers, your wii, ds, and all kinds of other electronics. i use a router for mine with GHIII and it has great connection, no lag at all. now when i had madden 08 it lagged like crazy but i heard that was because of the servers over at EA couldn't handle that. plus your connection problems usually only hurt you if you have bad internet connection in the first place

    You might be better off going wired (Lan Adapter) if you think there's connection issues. Some might disagree but I don't trust wireless internet at all.

    well a lot of people have had really bad problems with those lan adapters.

    my friend has a USB connecter and it works fine, I have a router and it works great.
