    Hello,

    Every USB ports of my Wii u are used. (2 USB ports for GC adapter and 2 ports for my wii games HDD)

    Can I use a USB HUB to connect more device to the console? I want to use an ethernet-usb adapter.

    Thanks

    Yep, should work fine. Just to warn you, the problems the Wii U has with USB LAN Adapters will probably be amplified if connected through the HUB.

    Maybe I can connect the LAN adapter directly to the Wii U and my HDD to the HUB?

    Well, I should say the problems will be amplified on a HUB with heavy traffic, same would go for your HDD. Just determine what you prioritize more. Also, chances are you won't notice any difference whatsoever with your LAN Adapter except when you're downloading a game. If your Internet doesn't have that high of down bandwidth, then it won't matter anyway. I was just emphasizing that HUBs aren't perfect. Though, the Wii U should have included an internal ethernet port, but that's neither here nor there.
