Is it possible to put an external Wifi connector on this

#1WhatPollPosted 11/7/2013 5:58:07 PM
Or am I forced to live with the constant internet connection crapping out on me? It's been like this for about a year, and all I have was the internet connection crapping out on me, despite me putting the DNS addresses that I found online.

You can pick one up a third party adapter at Best Buy for about $20. Or you can use the one from the original Wii if you have one. For some reason, Nintendo refuses to make one itself...

I have one on my Xbox 360. Since the Xbone will be releasing soon, I might as well use that.

Plugged in the Xbox 360 adapter, red light came on.

And there is AOSS, and Wifi Protected Setup as my two alternatives to wired or wireless

I don't think you can use an external wifi connector. Well you can get a wired connector and then connect that to a wifi bridge. Or you can set up a second access point as a repeater (bandwidth will be halved though)

I do not have a USB cable, and my PC for some reason, CANNOT be used as a wireless bridge.

To put this into perspective, imagine the damn system crapping out on you BEFORE you get to the main lobby of Wii bowling on Wii Sports Club.

Sure, out of dozens of error messages saying "You have lost your internet connection", I was able to complete 5 games total.

can't you just plug the wii u into the router?
EDIT:nvm
your router might suck too, I stuck with the G series router because I heard the newer ones didn't have as good a range and I don't have blazing speeds anyway

I port forwarded, but I don't see it doing much at all

And unsurprisingly, port forwarding did NOT solve anything at all
