    So i bought an intec lan adapter for my wii u because the wifi here at college sucks. But when I try setting it up in the setting the test always fails. I know it's not a problem with my lan cable because I use it all the time with my laptop. Also I tried plugging the adapter into my laptop and it worked. So there's nothing wrong with the adapter. Anybody have any suggestions?

    I guess I'll have to do that. I didn't want to because they cost $30 including shipping.

    the Nyko one functions fine also btw. you do not need an official one for it to work good.

    That's good to know, I just don't want to waste more money on another adapter that doesn't work. The weird thing is i even plugged it into my computer and it worked.
