Work how? Like you mean can the Wii U actually connect to the internet work?

Because the dongle has been pretty damn outdated for a while now.

It barely works for DS anymore. I highly doubt it will work with Wii U. Just buy a cheap compatible wireless router.

There is no option for it in the Wii U system settings. At least that I could see.

It's been discontinued for years, I can't see Nintendo adding any more support for it (there aren't even drivers for Windows 7).

No, but this little dohickey does:

It's not wi-fi, but it does convert the system's wi-fi abilities into an ethernet port. I have one connected to my Wii U and its works perfectly.

I don't think it does. There's not even a separate option for it like on the DS as far as I'm aware.

Ha! It really does sound like one. Maybe dohickey could be one too. o_O
