    Do you mean the distance you can take it away from the console? This is a hardware restriction mostly due to the amount of data that has to be transmitted back and forth between the gamepad and the console. There is no way to increase this software side :\

    That's more of a hardware issue my dude. The WiiU uses 5ghz to transmit the video without lag at the cost of distance so it can only go up to 20 something feet IIRC. There WAS a mod to extend this I think but I'd have to find it. I'll update my post when I do!

    found it

    Exactly what I was going to go find x3

    The only thing about the mod is that it's not a simple 1-2 finished project, you need to seriously be careful you don't damage something else inside the Gamepad.
