It's used with the wii if you don't have a wireless router.

Just a reminder for everyone, the Nintendo USB WiFi adapter only officially works with XP, atm; but there is a way to work around the drivers with Vista:

Quote:
Heya Guys,
People have had porblems installing the Wi-fi connector as it 'doesn't work' But it has worked for me!
This is how I just did it:
1) Download the latest Drivers for the stick found here: http://ms.nintendo-europe.com/usb/en/
2) Plug in the stick
3) Vista will ask if you want to install it. Make sure you look on the internet
4) While it is looking for drivers, extract the XP drivers
5) It will ask you for the disc, say 'I don't have the disc, let me choose other options'
6) Then it will show the same options as before in 3). Click Let me choose where the drivers are (or something like that)
7) then Where you extracted the files, make Vista look there (the whole folder)
8) Then the drivers will be installed.
9) go to the installation program of the Wi-fi stick. Run as Admin. Do this twice, once when it says welcome to Nintendo etc. Press ok, then click on the installation again and select language (English of course)
10) you may need to do it the third time for run as admin if the main installation does not come up
11) It will then do the normal installation, when completed, open your DS or turn on Wii, and try. It works

Hope I have helped many people
