summarise please. i0n has said this already. thanks tho.
It's just a USB to Ethernet adapter, commonly available at any computer store for about $10.
Nintendo's might be proprietary, but I doubt it.
There is not much to summerize, it's pretty straight forword. It's not as long to read either like my other one.
Damn... My wireless router doesn't work very good.
Wonder why they just didn't put a port on the back?
this was posted twice This is the third time posted lol
Well, they figured that most people don't have their internet connection in the same room as their TV, so it would be easier to have a wireless connection available.
Second, USB is a universal solution(hence the "U" in USB), thus allowing you to connect any device to it. As I mentioned above, any electronics store carries an adapter that plugs into your USB port and replicates an ethernet port.
So, from Nintendo's standpoint, it is cheaper to include two USB ports in which you can connect anything you'd like to, instead of having to include another controller on the board to handle wired ethernet.
Would you be able to connect your DS to the net through the Wii?
Yes, the Wii acts as an ad-hoc router, enabling you to connect anything with a WiFi connection to it.
However, if you already have a wireless router, I don't see the point of going this route.
I don't have a router Hence why I asked. So you can connect anything? So you can basically use that Wii as a gateway?
i was just about to post about this but i realised the source seems very weak it is a not really well known cideo games site and the just say it to them and they just say they annonced to them and i havent read about it any except here
