    Okay.. Cat5... Category 5 Ethernet Cable, Standard in all forms.

    The LAN adapter is made by Nintendo for the Wii. There are third party makers that make one. Just buy a $40 wireless router and be done with it.

    Are they really needed or that I can use other component cables (to use with 480p) for the Wii? Because the "original" ones were about 50% more expensive than other results.
    Componet cables are required to get 480p, which is only slightly better than 480i. By the way, 480 anthing is NOT High Defenition. The wii will not allow you to choose the 480p option in the menu without that cable. You can
    buy the Nintendo one or buy a 3rd party cable, ther are pleanty out there. I use the Psyclone one because I got it at half the price of the nintendo one.

    Also make sure whatever you are hoking this to has component hookups.. They will be Red, Green, and Blue RCA inputs.

    Yeah, I know that it's not HD, but because the version I got is the NTSC one, it currently uses the interlaced output (and after I'll add the cables for progressive output, will there be a quality diffrence between the NTSC and the PAL?). And I meant about a case if it won't detect it correctly or that the cables might be in a lower quality than Nintendo's?


    And about the internet, I'd prefer a wired internet, and anyway as currently I got a wired router, all of the computers lack a wireless connectivity.

    But I meant to do Wii's own connection. I don't see where its internet port is so I can't tell.

    But if I'll put it near a wired ethernet port, what kind of connector the Wii itself needs? Will a regular PC one connect to the Wii?

    No you do not have to use Nintendo's cable. Can't speak for PAL questions.

    Then buy the LAN adapter. It is USB and plugs into the port on the back.

    Regular PC what? Cable to your router? If so Yes.

    I don't know about "to the router", but as I said, I have the router at one computer and all of the other connections are obviously throw the ethernet.


    And I can see those USB connections, but why there are to of them?

    And does the computer cables also use a USB connection so I might be able to fit in another cable, or that only Nintendo uses that?

    Ok, here's a product I've found which's not of Nintendo.

    http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=133

    Is this basically what's needed? Should it work?
    (and by the way, what the hell is "10/100mbit"? What is this 10? Because 10 mega-bits sounds pretty crappy [my internet is slower than 10mb, but in general for USB connections)

    There's no way to tell if that will work with the Wii without testing it. It seems like you're trying to save money wherever possible but it's often easier and will cause the least amount of problems if you go with the official products. Most of these answers you're looking for can be found on Google, by the way (like what is 10/100mbit, etc).

    It simply shows other results citing "10/100mbits", it doesn't explain what it is.

    And I say that if it simply "adapts" the connection into a USB port it's probably supposed to be the same.


    And you say "just go with the official", but everything here is way too expensive.

    I've checked in Nintendo's site, and I think that their adapter is 25$.
    But here it'd cost me about 65$.

    This site lists all USB ethernet adapters that are compatible with the Wii:

    Well... can't help you there. I found those links using Google, btw.

    NTSC isn't by all accounts inferior to PAL.

    PAL = 576 visual lines, 25 frames per second, interlaced (576i)
    NTSC = 480 visual lines, 29.97 frames per second, interlaced (480i)

    This was based on the 50Hz of European AC power grids and 60Hz refresh in North American AC power, determining their FPS at 25 and 29.97 respectively.

    Arguments can be made to the superiority of one over the other, but we've moved beyond that anyways.

    HDTV = several formats:
    720 visual lines, 23.976, 24, 25, 29.97, or 30 fps, progressive or interlaced
    1080 visual lines, 23.976, 24, 25, 29.97, or 30 fps, progressive or interlaced


    My suggestion, get a PAL Wii, or make sure your TV supports multiple stabdards to convert NTSC to PAL.

    i was also going to comment on the 60/50hz refresh rates. that may be what causes the 'overy-inerlaced'
