    ! Hi to all GBA temp users ! :grog:


    I have "TP-LINK TL-WN722N" USB wi-fi antenna and i use it on my PC without any problems whatsoever.

    What i mean to say is that it can catch wi-fi signal from my other room and signal is like FULL!
    But, when i try to catch signal with my Nintendo Wii, in order to play some games online, the signal is barely one line, in other words the signal is horrible, it's like there is no connection.

    Now, the reason why i posted the model of my TP-LINK wi-fi antenna is because i was thinking..is there a way to put TP-LINK antenna unto Wii (since it has USB) and boost wi-fi gain of the Nintendo, so i can have full signal on Wii?
    Or, if there are some other way to do this..i don't know..through homebrew or through hacking nintendo Wii or... i don't know, that's why i am here hihi :shy:


    Thanks in advance for an answer, and i hope his will help others as well :yaywii:

    That type of modification really isn't worth it. Wireless gaming usually has higher ping time, making it lag in multilayer game (even under full signal).

    Personally I recommend you get USB Ethernet adapter and go with wired option. If you have the budget pick up a 200 Mbps Powerline kit.

    Yes that's true sometimes there is interference from other wifi sources especially if you live in close quarters such as a dorm or flat. On your PC you can download a program that displays the available networks and their channels then choose a channel that is the most vacant to avoid interference.
