What type of wireless router do I need to hook my wii up to the internet if I dont have a computer? I plan on getting comcast high speed internet and wireless router so I can hook my wii up to internet. The only thing is I dont have computer and it seems like you need a computer to set up the wireless routers but in the nintendo manual it says I just need broadband internet connection and wireless router im so confused. Whats a good wireless router to get for the wii console in my situation?

think you should try a wii forum and not a robotics one ;)

i think i have the opposite of this problem.

my internet connection was working fine with my wii, but the bit of acrylic i propped up in front of the little green light on the front refused to cut itself into something useful.

Hello,

i stumbled upon the hexapod CNC robot from a different field of interest (no, i don't own a wii). I am interested in manufacturing models and want to build my own CNC machine. Your robot's advantage is that you are not restricted to the size of the table like a conventional CNC machine. Also by the sideways and forward/backwards tilting the robot is capable of you have two more axles or dimensions over a normal XYZ axis system, which allows more complex work.

Still i have some questions i hope you are willing to help me out on:

1. The only thing i read about the hexapod's accuracy is that it isn't very accurate which is not a very accurate statement in itself. How accurate is it? I saw some results of modellers using a (semi-)professional ( meaning Eur 6000 costing, way out of my budget) conventional CNC router well capable of 0.1mm precision.
2. What kind of accuracy (estimated) would be achieved using laser guidance/positioning?
3. What are the dimensions of the robot?
4. What are the estimated costs?

Thanks

Hi,

I have to say in its current form it really isn't of much use as a practical machine, it simply isn't strong/heavy/big enough to do any really hard work. Also the resolution is pretty poor, aprox. 7bit in 70mm square area.

You have to ask why you would want to take this approach for XYZ CNC milling, why use 18 motors to do the job of 3. I did this for fun, I realize there may be some circumstances where this could be of use, but to get a really goo accurate system, you would need a big unit, and I think it would cost more than most good CNC machines. :)

I can't imagine machining anything harder than plastic or wood using the hexapod. Maybe a hexapod could be made out of solid cast iron? :roll:
