    "
    Error Code: 50420
    The USB Ethernet adapter has not been properly inserted.
    "

    That's the error that I get when I try my new KINAMAX NT-USB20 NETWORK ADAPTER that I bought off newegg. It's usb to Rj-45.

    I read from several sources that it was compatible with the Wii. Does anyone know anything about this?

    i spent less than 10, it is just an adapter, one side is usb the other is ethernet. I hope u get it working, I don't see why it wouldn't work? maybe b/c no drivers.

    You can try updating if you have a friend with wireless, but I think it's a hardware or connection problem, try the other USB port or try connecting it while the power is on, that is if you tried it with the power off, if you tried it with the power on, try vice-versa

    i read a load of people who had bought the kinamax adapter, and it seems like only certain ones worked.

    alot of the sites selling them claim they are compatible, but alot of user feedback said otherwise.

    try get your money back and buy an official one (may need a jap import if its not out where you live yet, i dont know)

    I'm guessing, I use wireless though, but if it's a software driver issue, unless they make driver ISO downloads, downloading them from a wireless connection is the only choice

    i have the driver disk for mine, it's actually the size of a gamecube disc. I wonder what might happen if I was to put it in.

    It wouldn't hurt it, the worst that will happen is it won't read, I think that might happen, I don't think there is a Wii compatible driver on it

    it wont read it..

    that disc will have been made for a standard cd/dvd rom drive (ie in a pc) so the drivers on there will be for the pc only, plus the wii reads discs from the outside-in, so it most likely wouldnt be able to read it anyways..

    an update wont sort it, the update needs to be downloaded, how would they expect you to download an update to allow you to connect? it doesnt make sense..

    you would need to get a replacement adapter. i noticed you got yours from newegg, thats one of the places i read alot of people had compatability issues with them adapters

    Yeah, I never knew that Wii read discs from the outside in, but the Wii being entirely different than a computer, the driver on that CD would be interensting to me if it worked on the Wii, usually when they ship hardware, the driver CD only works on a computer, and sometimes only for a specific OS, like Windows only, Linix/Unix only, Mac only drivers, but i'd doubt a Wii driver, and if the disc gets read the opposite way, that would make things harder, and that would be why it dosen't read audio CDs, as for sticking the disc inside the Wii, that's the worst that will happen, A burned a pocket disc once of a file I found online, it couldn't read the data that was on the disc (obviously, bad move on my part), but the drive itself can still handle the size of the disc, i'm not sure what it would do with a business card CD (the ones shaped like a rectangle or like a mini CD with the top and the bottom cut off), it would be pretty cool if it did work, then we could figure out a way to code and burn for a Wii and create Wii launchable discs, that would be sweet

    As for the update part, updating for an internet connection driver from an internet connection really isn't that uncommon, if it's a driver issue, and the converter was supposed to work on a Wii, but requires drivers, the only way to get to the drivers is to update the Wii, and the only way to do that is to find a wireless connection, that is unless you got the Nintendo one then, then what is the point of trying out the other one?

    Hey I actually went out and bought the Nintendo Wifi thing-a-ma-bob and has issues with it at first. But I got it working. I wouldn't recommend it, I actually returned it and since I had issues with it, called Nintendo for tech support, and I wound up Buying an Offical Nintendo Lan adapter from them for cheaper than the 3rd Party one that is in Stores.

    https://store.nintendo.com/webapp/w...xyvypHh0kMmZDEuMbppVI7XA==&ddkey=ProductCheck

    With Shipping it came to $31.18 I think, which is still a few dollars cheaper than the 3rd paty, and it's warranteed by Nintendo. :)

    If you take a game and copy it without paying for that media originally is piracy, but it all depends on the media, what I meant is like homebrew, where we cam make a our own games that we can play on the Wii/Gamecube, not copied games

    set wireless channel to 1, set wireless mode to wireless B&G mixed, if you still don't get a good connection, your wireless router could have transmitting problems, if you use a computer and the computer works fine, the wireless card in the Wii may have problems, if so, Call Nintendo Tech support
