After I had bought the Wii and a DS (gaming systems made by Nintendo-Online by Wi-Fi), my friend thought it would be suitable to get me a Nintendo Wi-Fi connector. A Nintendo Wi-Fi connector is a nifty little device that hooks the certain gaming console to online activities very quickly. The other option was to get a wireless router, which would've been harder to setup and it is of a higher price. At first, I was very skeptical that such a small device could hook-up to your computer and automatically give you Wi-Fi access, but after installation, I was pleased with the results.
When I reached my computer, I was eager to try it out. The device, however, turned out to be unavailable now to buy unless used already, so there was only one way to get it up and running.
A download and setup from the customer support website.
Dismayed at the news, I knew that it would be awhile before I got it working. After downloading, setting up the package, finding out there was a new download needed, downloading that, setting the rest up, installing it, approving my system, and turning on my game consoles, I was ready to use it. But, another let down, it wasn't working and I had to call customer service. The person on the other line was very efficient and kind, so it was no problem after that, and I had it working within the half-hour.
After that, it was extremely fun to use, and I had no future problems besides the Wi-Fi connection shutting down occasionally, due to the distance between my Wii and the connector (which isn't very far).
I have been thuroughly satisfied with it, even though getting it ready wasn't necessarily easy.
