    Now, I have a Nintendo Wi-fi USB connector, which just plugs into your usb port then sends a signal to the wii, thus establishing a connection.

    My question to you guys is, what is the range that this thing has? I'm pretty sure mine is at max but I'm not sure.

    Also, I don't want to sound like a retard, but can the signal travel through dry wall? Because if it can that could solve a lot of problems for me.

    All posts will be acknowledged.:smilewinkgrin:

    maybe ur computer is giving off interference cause whenever i have it connected directly to the computer without the extention attachment it doesnt work so i use the extention and i get the usb as far away from the computer in the direction that my wii is and it works fine but if it gets to close to the computer it wont work

    EDIT: also the interference doesnt block the signal but it weakens it considerbly so it cant go through walls which also explains why it would still work from in that room

    well when i had mine, my wii was in my basement and my wi-fi usb connector was 1.5 stories above it(i have a story inbetween, but it's only 1 room)

    it worked fine

    however my bro lives in an apartment, that's small as hell(his bedroom and living room are the same)
