Connect Your Nintendo Wii to the UTC Network

Special Note

The old original Wii is not supported by UTC's wireless network. We cannot permit the original Wii to connect to the wireless without causing a performance degradation for the rest of the devices and users that are using the wireless network. The newer Wii U does not suffer from this incompatibility.

For the original Wii, we recommend purchasing the Nintendo ethernet adapter so that the Wii can be connected to the ethernet wall jack in your dorm room. It is available on Amazon for $ at the following link: Here
