If you're a Wii U owner who's on the fence about shelling out 20 or so bucks for this product, I say go for it. The difference in speed between a wired and wireless connection on the Wii U is enormous, as the Wii U does not support the faster 5ghz wireless connections. It's also great to have around the house if you have a laptop that lacks a traditional ethernet port, and your wireless signal decides to get spotty.
Since the order is fulfilled by Amazon, the shipping is quite speedy, especially if you're a Prime member.
TLDR; it does what it sets out to do, is easy to use, and is worth the money.
Smash Bros online played unbearably with the lag. This product works seamlessly.
My prebuilt PC has the luxury of having a 50$ network adapter to avoid the connectivity issues with my router being on the opposite ends of the house. Unfortunately for my Wii W ,with the confirmation of a html 5 speed test, it was having low,fluctuating speeds. I am now getting 7.5-9.5mb/s average compared to 2-4 from Wii U wifi. Unfortunately it looks like the wii u cant do over 10mb/s over wired.
I Plugged in the adapter to the Wii U, connected it to my pc via Ethernet and went into the control panel on my pc and enabled sharing on my wifi. Then go into the Wii U and set up the wired connection and you're done.
After installation, the download speed doubled, to 95 Mbits/sec (9.5 MB), compared to Wifi 802.11n. If you want anything faster, you'll need to get Plugable's Gigabit USB to LAN adapter.
Excellent value overall. $20 well spent.
So I bought this little doohickey, and hooked it up to the Wii on one side, and a power-line networking gizmo on the other.
It works fine, the power line connection seems to be getting about 50 Mb/s, but that's enough for the SD video we are pushing through it.
As far as gaming is concerned, we don't notice any difference, we were never into any network centric games on the Wii.
