    Official ones are rare. They don't make them anymore. They are going to be too expensive.

    My experience is that there's no benefit to having the official ones anyway.
    I bought a third party one for 1/2 the price and it works perfectly on my Wii U.

    Plus, I think it's actually a little bit smaller... though I could be wrong.

    Amazon or eBay should have them but you'll be paying a good chunk of money for it.

    I bought a third party USB-LAN adapter for my Wii U and it works perfectly plus I paid a small amount for it so it all worked out.

    I just heard that the official one runs better than third party that's why I ordered it, but if that's not the case I'll cancel my order.

    If you feel like paying $35 for something that should cost under $10, that's up to you.

    yeah I'm probably going to cancel it.. but which third party lan adapters works the best then? The one that trumpet-205 mentioned?

    That's sorta hard to tell because they're brandless and white/black so they're probably all the same from the same factory (China or Hong Kong).

    I think I'm going to get the pluggable one instead.
