I have had absolutely no problems with this one however. It is extremely easy to set up (just plug it into the USB port at back of your Wii, connect the supplied ethernet patch cable and then connect this to your router). It even comes with a clear instructions booklet should you encounter any problems.
The one complaint I might have is that the supplied ethernet patch cable is not long enough for my needs, so I have to physically move my router away from my computer and towards my Wii whenever I want to use it. However, I can't really complain about this because a) the ethernet patch cable is a freebie; b) longer patch cables are cheap to buy; c) if I really wanted to, I could move my computer permanently nearer to my Wii!
Buy this without fear of malfunction. You can get your Wii online within minutes. I have already been on the shopping channel and downloaded the (so far) two free channels - Everybody Votes and Opera Internet Browser. They work fine. Using your Wii for surfing the internet isn't as good as I'd hoped for however, as even with a big TV the screen is quite small. But as for this adapter, it does the job perfectly.
NB - just remember you will need some Cat5 cable with an RJ45 connector to connect to your Lan adapter and your internet connection.
UPDATE: 2012 - I also used this in my laptop USB port and it was used practically everyday, unfortunately it eventually died a death and does not work anymore. It did get used many hours each day and for the price I originally paid was worth it - but if you are looking for something similar for your laptop to use every day then maybe look for something more reliable long term. It is fine to use it for the occasional Wii updates though but I would be concerned about using it for anything more strenuous on a daily basis. I opened it up to have a look inside after it stopped working and the quality of the wire connection was very poor. The wires had been bent so much inside the unit that the plastic covering had come away from some wires leaving the bare wire visible - NOT GOOD!
Regarding the adapter itself, really there is very little to say, other than that it does as it should, it's small and neat and simply plugs in one end to the Wii via the USB port and takes the cable in the other end, all very simple and logical, which is all you could want or expect from such an item.
As with every purchase I make, I checked out as many available sources as possible, the various delivery prices, delivery times, whether there were 3rd party sellers, several comparison sites and everything you would expect when buying anything online and this particular adapter came out best in every area, not expensive, functional, for sale through a trusted seller and not trying to charge me stupid postal fees.
