    How do you use ethernet with the Wii?

    Obviously there is no Ethernet port, so some kind of device is going to be needed to hook it up online.. my question is, will this be available at Launch? And can someone link me to something on walmart or something about it? Thanks.

    Nintendo is making a USB Ethernet adapter.
    It is undetermined if the non-Nintendo ones will work.
    Some others did work for the PS2.......
    I know you can get a generic one for a lot cheaper than the Big N's one.

    Hi, not all people have wireless, obviously, so please don't be an ass and reply with a nonhelpful response. Will this device be available at launch?

    I have not heard an official release date on the USB adapter. I looked and can't seem to find a street date.
    Alternately you can get the Nintendo Wireless USB adapter.
    Also wireless routers are very cheap these days. If you buy an 802.11b. Usually cheaper than what the Nintendo USB Ethernet will be or Wireless USB adapter.


    Here is one for $25.
    FatWallet Forums - Linksys Compact Wireless-G Router - WRT54GC , $24.98 AC + shipping, Online @ Staples

    and another
