Wii U Product Ideas & Questions

Hello,

 

Nintendo stated that Nintendo Wii LAN adaptors will work with the Wii U. So I hooked up my RF-GWII008 and I was able to get internet. My questions is since this is a 10/100 LAN adaptor would a Wii U version features gigiabit speeds and my ISP is 150 Mbps? If so are you planning on releasing one? (I prefer not to use wireless when possiple)

 

Also I hope you release a Externial Hard drive since Wii U supports externial powered HDDs or a USB Hub. I know any USB hub will work (likely would need to be powered) but a Wii U designed one or Nintendo Seal of Quality would be nice.

 

Thanks!

Re: Wii U Product Ideas & Questions

Also is your ND-GWII1125 compatitable with the WiiU since the sesnor bars should be the same?

Hello mdemop,

Welcome to Community@ Rocketfish™!

 

I can't confirm any plans to release a gigabit adapter as of yet but I can certainly pass along your interest  to the appropriate parties. As to your question about the ND-GWII1125, it has not yet been tested for compatibility, I will ask the question of our engineers and report back here as soon as I have a reply.

Regards,
Tom

Hello mdemop,

I have heard back from the engineers and the ND-GWII1125 should be compatible with the new Wii U.

Is that true of all your Wii Sensor Bars?

Re: Wii U Product Ideas & Questions

I had to use Official Nintendo LAN which I imported from Japan (sold out in US at the time) when i switched from 2.4GHz to 5GHz and like it says, no wireless connection.  And yes one can access Motorola Wireless Gateway Cable Modem on Wii U.  Cable Modem Gateway is SGB6580.

 

Nintendo should have made the Wi-Fi Dual 2.4GHz & 5GHz.  Only the Wii U gamepad is operating at 5GHz

 

Your right that 10/100/1000 Mbps were the old ways but to get 150 Mbps, 300 Mbps, 450 Mbps is the standard norm for wireless.  I rarely see 800 Mbps on Cable Modems but it's only mentioned on Routers.

 

I had 2 laptops with Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection

If you read http://www.intel.com/products/wireless/prowireless_mobile.htm, both can max out at 54Mbps. There's no 802.11n either & operate @ dual 2.4GHz & 5 GHz.  In process of getting an half mini to full bracket with Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235.  That's 300Mbps wireless & Bluetooth

802.11a=54Mbps (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/802.11a)  at&t internet 2wire crap speed

802.11b=11Mbps @ 2.4GHz

802.11g=54Mbps @ 2.4GHz

802.11n=allows bandwidth of 20MHz or 40MHz.  150Mbps @ 20MHz Bandwith @ 2.4GHz.  300 @ 40MHz Bandwith @ 2.4GHz..  Think about when's it's @ 5GHz. Not much interference.

 

Comcast will do tricks like when I asked how do I add a PHYSICAL MAC ADDRESS to router he didn't know & asked me to pay for the Signature Series Technical Support.  I figured out myself  that when I type more than 20 characters in comment box in won't process it.

 

Also note that Cisco is doing the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ ac wireless Gbps that 1300 Mbps @ 5GHz @ 80MHz Bandwidth & 160MHz.  The Linksys WUMC710 is ac+an while Cisco VEN401 is an only ( http://www.wikidevi.com/wiki/Linksys_WUMC710)

That's why I have a half way system.  I got a the Cable Modem for 300Mbps & when I have more money get the Linksys Wireless AC Bundle.

Re: Wii U Product Ideas & Questions

I'm using a Rocket Fish LAN adaptor for my Wii U and it has stopped working after less than a month. I tried reseting my router, unlugging and repluging the device, and I even checked the cord. Is it possible that I could've got a faulty device? HELP!!

Re: Wii U Product Ideas & Questions

     My product number is 12255. I had to look up how to find it and what I found said that it was the second set of numbers on the bar code. Also, my Wii LAN is working now stragely enough. It started working after I put plugged the LAN wire that came with it, and I plugged the other end into my computer. Then I plugged the LAN wire that I usually use and it has worked fine for the past five days.
