Still Kickin' After A Year Aug. 22 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Bought this used July 23 '10, and it's still working like a charm. Originally had it connected to a WNHDE111 wireless bridge, then a TEW-647GA, and currently a GWU627. To my delight, the Rocketfish has worked very well with each of these devices. I no longer game on my Wii but instead stream Netflix daily for a couple of hours. Initially, I would have constant disconnect problems every half hour or so, and I would have to leave the Netflix app to reconnect. Fixed this by logging into my router's web user interface and giving the Wii a static IP address. Also went into the Wii settings itself and set up static IP and DNS. Ever since then I've only had the occasional hiccup, but my router, repeater, or wireless bridge are just as suspect as the Rocketfish. In any case, I've streamed as much as three feature films back to back without interruption. Also, my Wii is updated to the latest firmware and my ISP is Optimum Online, and after a year I haven't encountered any compatibility issues or defects. Only bug I noticed is that after a while the Wii no longer sees the Rocketfish's MAC address, but Netflix still keeps on churning. I hardly ever handle the Rocketfish, so dunno how it'll handle drops and other accidents, but it has survived this long through two summers of heavy Netflix streaming in an un-airconditioned second floor bedroom. Very worth the price, especially used or refurbished. I stream a lot of action-oriented anime, and thanks to this adapter high speed action sequences no longer get blurry as if a camera was losing focus. As far as I'm concerned, this is the best ethernet adapter for the Wii solely based on its ultra low price. A friend of mine has the more expensive Nyko version which has plenty of excellent reviews here on Amazon. It's slightly smaller and of a sleeker glossy plastic, but honestly, it and the Rocketfish are on par with each other. If you want a Wii ethernet adapter, just go for the cheapest and the Rockefish is probably the most likely candidate.

A cheap, fast Ethernet adapter Feb. 28 2012

I'm using this for a computer running Linux, and it works quite simply with no firmware or bleeding edge drivers required. (I plugged it in. It worked. This is under Debian, kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64.) I get about 95Mbit/s throughput in both directions, but if I test both directions simultaneously I'll see one side drop to about 60-70Mbit/s while the other side continues at full speed. I've sent about 300000 pings to my router through this adapter over the course of 8 hours and none were dropped.

At the price, these are competitive with internal cards and I'm looking forward to buying a bunch more to keep on hand for emergencies.

The missing "link" April 16 2012

I purchased these to use on my GNS3 server for my virtual routers to physical/real switches to create trunk ports since the device supports 802.1q. They work just fine!

Works for Wii U April 16 2013
By FanBoy83 - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
My YouTube channel had some loading issues so I looked into speeding it up a bit with a LAN hookup. The people at best buy didn't know if this was compatible with the Wii U but I figured I'd give it a shot, and return it if it didn't work. Plugged the product in, changed my connection settings, and voila! Faster internet on my Wii U, no more YouTube lag. Very satisfied with the product.
