Will Nintendo WII Wi-Fi work with Mac 10.3.9 or 10.4.8?

The WiFi works with the network... not your computer.

 

You need something like a router to broadcast your signal to the Wii.

 

What type of connection does your computer have and where is it getting it from?

Thanks. The wireless router is a AT&T Homeportal which gives me 802.11G. One Mac is ethernet wired. The other 2 macs are wireless described as Airport in Sys prefs.

 

The main reason I asked is Nintendo indicates you got to have Windows XP and IE, but don't indicate what it is used for.

Odd.

 

Not sure what they mean by that. I've got a g network off my Netgear and my Macs. No problems. Now -- there is a free Opera download that you can get for the wii -- but you download that thru the WiiStore on the wii itself.

 

Not sure what that XP/IE reference is about.

If you buy Nintendo's USB WiFi adapter, you do need Windows. If you already have a wireless router though, you should be fine. My network has two Macs, one Linux machine, a Wii and a DS on it, no Windows in sight.

Thanks for the info. Just wanted to make sure I wouldn't lose any functionality with the WII on a Mac only situation.

You know, you can use the WiiMote with your Mac as a gyroscopic mouse? Just get the application Darwiinremote to make it work.
