Device list

Is the "Compatibility" column still relevant? I mean, it already lists practically all USB accessories used on Wii games and all of them are compatible as of 5.0-2352... - mbc07 (talk) 02:23, 7 February 2017 (CET)

I think the USB LAN Adapter doesn't work. JMC4789 (talk) 03:04, 7 February 2017 (CET)

So yeah, let's keep the Compatibility column for now :P
AFAIK Wii Network emulation shows itself as an USB LAN Adapter for the emulated softwares, that's probably why a real USB LAN Adapter doesn't work. Now I'm wondering how a real Wii would behave if it had two USB LAN Adapters connected simultaneously... - mbc07 (talk) 03:48, 7 February 2017 (CET)
Yes, Dolphin's IOS Ethernet code directly connects to the Internet, unlike the original IOS, which uses /dev/usb/ven (yes, it can be used internally as well) to communicate with a real Ethernet adapter. And since it only needs one adapter, well, it will likely only attach and use the first adapter it finds. Léo (leoetlino) (talk) 10:26, 7 February 2017 (CET)
