Help Nintendo Analyze Your Home Wireless Networks

Posted by Nathaniel at 6:49 PM
GamingNintendo is asking for their members to assist them in analyzing their home wireless networks in order to get some real statistics on the general population's internet services.

The assistance comes in the form of a few simple questions, and then a small download and installation of a mini "Animal Crossing" style clock in the lower right-hand corner of your computer desktop.

The application then performs simple network analysis routines, presumably connecting to Nintendo's network and running statistical programs to capture performance data.

It's pretty harmless, and for a fanboy such as myself, it's great to think that I'm somehow contributing to the potential success of Nintendo's future DS/Revolution WiFi network.

More details as they become available.
