Datel WiFi MAX for the Wii

Nintendo WiFi MAX for the WiiOnline connectivity’s the name of the game these days when it comes to both gaming consoles and handhelds. Of course, the same goes for Nintendo’s awesome twosome, the Wii and the DS handheld. But what if you have no wireless router? Does that mean that you’re forever stuck with not being able to connect both platforms to each other?

Hell no. From Datel comes the WiFi MAX for the Wii, “the easiest and cheapest way to take your consoles online and compete with gamers from all over the world.” This little doohickey is your ticket to the world of online gaming.

Using it is simplicity itself: just plug your USB WiFi dongle into your internet-enabled PC to create a Wireless Access Point. You can then connect to the internet and play online-enabled multiplayer games with DS and Wii gamers from all over the world.

The WiFi MAX supports up to five local DS gamers at a time, so you and your friends can all play online at once with no loss of speed. You can also use it to download additional material such as new levels, skins, artwork and even classic games for the Virtual Console.

WiFi MAX operates on the Wireless G standard, so it’s five times faster than an ordinary WiFi connection, and if you use the bundled USB cable and dongle stand, you can position your dongle to maximize WiFi range. The WiFi MAX is also usable with other WiFi-enabled devices capable of using the internet such as laptops or PDAs.

The WiFi MAX for the Wii is out now, and costs UK£ 29.99 and US$ 39.99.

UPDATE: Somebody commented that this device was made by Datel and not Nintendo. We checked our sources and found out that WiFi MAX is indeed a Datel product and we have made the necessary corrections in the article. Our apologies for that minor boo-boo.
