As per my older thread here (viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2468
) I'm looking for someone to perform a mod on a Wii U GamePad in order for it to send data via a wire only
via wireless communication.
I believe that this mod would mean removing the wireless capability of the device, adding in some sort of different port (unless the two on the GamePad mentioned below would somehow suffice), doing some work on the circuitry, and then plugging it in to the console's USB ports.
The Wii U itself contains USB ports, although the GamePad does not have a dedicated mini-USB port and instead has a port that is designed to draw power only and not transmit data, I believe (though I am not sure, you can see a picture here, notice the top right http://0.tqn.com/d/nintendo/1/0/q/6/-/- ... e_cord.JPG
). There is also a port on the bottom of the controller designed to transmit data which you can see here (http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/gamel ... ii_041.jpg
You can see a teardown of the controller here (http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Nintendo ... wn/11796/3
), and other users in my previous thread have made suggestions as to how this mod could be achieved, with one member suggesting that "pulling out the WiFi antenna lines to a coax line down into a shielded box would work best", though there may be other ways.
I'm not really proficient in this area, so that's all the information I can provide, but if anyone here would be able to help I would be very grateful. Send me a PM and we can discuss details! I'm willing to pay a healthy amount and cover postage costs/etc to anyone willing to help out.
