Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on the WiiU I bought this item specifically for the WiiU as the wifi was flaky when playing Splatoon online. This plugs straight into one of the back USB ports and is detected by the console when setting up the network just like the official unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Am using Input Director to run 2 PCs and a laptop from one kboard/mouse. The laptop was wireless to the network but ID doesn't seem to like that and 'judders' the cursor on the laptop display. As no Ethernet port on the laptop i decided to use this adaptor to create a wired connection. Works on Win 7 without any need for the supplied drivers disk. ID also works fine after switching to wired. Success all round!

Will it support a Raspberry Pi Zero. Use each R Pi Zero and camera (3) reading a gas/electric and PV meters using OpenCV sending data to a R Pi 3 for live display and thus downloading to Linux P C.
