    Hello guys yesterday I accidentally and randomly found this signal on vWii with ping tools app for Android, today I rechecked and it doesn't matter if you are in game or just wii u menu or wii mode I believe we could emulate that signal on pc or Android to connect gamepad on it for an emulator or something? It might be useful! I think we need programmers and network analyzers? ~~ Have a look guys :P

    It will probably be nothing.

    (Although can someone tell me whether the GamePad uses Bluetooth to connect to the Wii U?)

    If the gamepad can connect to a PC, then yes, it would be awesome! :P

    It uses wifi 5ghz. A very specific broadband (or whatever that companies called) that they developed with nintendo.

    Really, the only thing interesting, is that the signal is set to always on. the wiiu console can connect to 2.4ghz for network, while it sends out a private network in 5ghz to stream data to the gamepad. and i believe that the gamepad controls work by bluetooth to pair similar to any wiimote/pro controller. a break down of the gamepad shows a network card with antennas up top, and a bluetooth card down by one of the speakers.

    Are you sure? Do you have a source for this? I thought it couldn't work on Windows because of limitations in Windows drivers/kernel.
