Why? It was the only way I could play wii, ds, and such online! I go to a boarding school, and I live with my dad. At this school, there is campus wide wireless internet. But they have a setting that does not allow for online accessibility via games. Becuase I live with my dad, I just connect my wifi connecter to my dads computer, which has a wired connection, irrelevent to the wireless connection. But being the guy my dad is, he throws it away because, quote over quote, "he didnt know what it was". If he threw everything away that he didnt know what it was, his apartment would be %93 less cluttered. Im not even exaggerating... Unfortunately... And now I dont have a wifi connector. I would love to get another one, but they arent manufactured any more... This begs the question, why on earth did Nintendo stop making those WiFi connectors? also, is there any product equivalent to the function of the wifi connector out there, that is about 40$ or less?
