    I was wondering if any one could help me with a small problem I am having please?

    I have brought the Datel LAN Adapter for Nintendo Wii and opened up the item today and I know have a problem if any one could help me please!

    Firstly the lead does not stretch to my computer, I am presuming I can buy a lead to extend it? And if so where from?

    Secondly it apparently plugs into the back of my router but I have no spare space to plug it? Can I buy some kind of device to split it so both parts can be plugged in? I am presuming this goes into the slot marked "DSL' or can I unplug the part marked 'DSL' and just plug this in its place?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many thanks

    its amazing how you can just buy this stuff cheaper and its more readily available, but when big companies such as Nintendo buy into this stuff and put their names on it its expensive.

    Standard 100baseT ethernet is always faster than that Wii's wifi. They're just stating something that's a fact and trying to sell it as some sort of "feature". Since we don't have any online play or large downloadable content (at this stage), there's no real benefit to having a faster connection than wifi (and there's no hassle of running wires).

    Since wifi is standard, I would assume that any such net-enabled games would have less of a bandwidth requirement than current online console games. Take a look at the 360 for example - tethered ethernet is the standard, not wifi.

    Wifi or direct cable connection will have no difference in speed unless you can download at over 1MB (thats megaBYTE) per second.
