I dont know either.. But a cable can speed it up. I just tested it on my ps3. It downloaded at 2MB's wireless but 4-5 wired.

So in a few hours i will go to the store and buy a switch and i will re download the game and give my report to see if cable really doubles the download rate. (it could be that wii-U uses 6 year old wifi tech.

The simplest answer is usually the right one , so im going to hop on the its the servers fault for things going slow. When i download things on Steam, I start tieing up all the bandwidth because its going 5M/s . The only other thing it could possibly be is a Port issue in which case portforward.com

All I know is that all my gadgets download at the same pace. I was considering a LAN adapter myself, but I haven't heard concrete evidence that it improves anything all that drastically.

Latency is better, but speed is worse since it's USB and such.

Actually the USB adapter is technically faster, I've tested it. Still I'm pretty damn sure that any bottleneck will be somewhere else. The LAN adapter won't help unless you've got a particularly bad wireless signal or if you're pushing local traffic. I have the LAN adapter but use wireless because it's good enough and there aren't enough USB ports on the back for it and my external HDD with Y-Cable.

For sure. I have no lag on my connection, so I can't justify buying the USB LAN adapter. My Wii U is about 4 feet away from my router. That's the only reason why I would consider it, besides a possibly better connection.

Since I can't notice any lag on my end, there's no point for me to buy one unless I somehow get stuck with a modem by itself. My router is a modem combo maxed at 20mb/s potential speed, so I can't even go that much higher even in terms of internet, altogether.
