I don't know if you can only use the Nintendo created LAN adaptor with the wii as they say or if this was a poorly made unit. However, it simply stopped working after 30 days. I stopped using the unit one night and went to use it again two nights later and it was completely broken -- no power, no light, nothing. There were no visible defects with the unit, I hadn't misused it, I am the only person who uses it and have no pets who could have chewed the wire or anything.
Either way I wanted to insure that anyone else thinking about purchasing this item knew about my experience -- I may just be bad luck on my part -- but just in case.
Anyway, there's not much to say. Opened it up, hooked it to the back of the Wii, ran the included cable to my network port, then switched my connection to "Wired" from "Wireless" int he Wii Internet options. Done. WiiConnect24 works fine, online games have been working fine, no issues.
The only thing I noticed is that I wasn't able to find the MAC address for the adapter in the menu (I could still find the wireless one). Didn't search too hard, because I just turned off my filter to get it then turned filtering back on with this device added. I'd wager it's probably in there somewhere. I just don't remember it being anywhere that I'd think to look.
Oh, and the ugly beige cord included. I mean, obviously it's just a cheap pack-in, but you'd think they try to find some white or something to match the adapter/Wii. Not a big deal, though, and really I'm just glad they threw in a cord at all.
If, for whatever reason, you need to hook your Wii up the old-fashioned way, this should fit your need perfectly.
So trust me, it's a very good buy!
I also found that it works well for connecting computers to the network when an ethernet port is not available. I used it to connect my OLPC to the network and it worked great.
