    So the guys at www.speedtest.net have a special page setup for your Wii to test it's speeds. I've personally tried my Wii using the Ninty USB WiFi Connector and get about 3.00 kbps download and 0.5 kbps upload. I personally thought this was slow since my PC connects at 30mbps download and 6mbps upload.

    I also tried a friend's Wii using a wireless router and he got similar speeds yet his internet connection is much slower.

    What speeds so the LAN adapters allow the Wii to achieve?

    Is there a cap to the speed the Wii is capable of reaching? If so, is it a hardware limitation that we are stuck with or a software limitation that might some day be modified? If it's a software cap am I more likely to wait for a homebrew internet channel?

    2.81Mbps download
    0.43Mbps upload
    34ms ping

    on a 24Mbps connection (although only get around 13-14Mbps on my main pc as im a fair way away from the exchange and have a really shit modem [​IMG] )

    [edit]

    btw, my wii is quite literally about 15cm from my wireless router. wii is in cabinet which tv sits on top of, and my modem + router are hidden away behind the tv [​IMG]
