    New member here so be gentle!

    I was wondering if anyone has done work in this area already? I already searched various places but came up with nada.

    Would anyone be interested in turning a spare Wii into a router of sorts? I realize there are lots of routers on the market already with DDWRT, Tomato, etc. support.

    Just would be nice to harness the power of a lovely little console.

    You can buy some nice access points and/or routers that can run DD-WRT from places like Goodwill and other thrift stores for really cheap. I got a N600 Dual Band N Netgear router for $5 a few months ago and it can run DD-WRT and can run both 2.4 and 5 GHZ simultaneously.

    I got a DDWRT Netgear Router at Walmart for $19.00, it runs at 6+Ghz and has a Nice Firmware. But, if you wanted to turn a Wii into a Router well.....that's a different story.

    Maybe use the LAN Adapter, and Use some sort of Homebrew to Broadcast the Connection as a Wi/Fi Access Point(Using Default Builtin Wi/Fi Adapter); And with a WEP/WEP2 key.
