Nintendo Wii/DS and ResNet Wireless

Because the ResNet wireless system does not support B wireless connections, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS gaming consoles will not be able to connect to the ResNet wireless system since they require a B wireless connection. 

Our recommendation is to purchase an Ethernet adapter for the Wii, which can be purchased online from the Nintendo store or at other major retailers. 

More information can be found on Nintendo's website.
