regarding why i asked the wireless connection...
i was reading the threads for problems connecting with the wireless in wiichat and some people said that when they had their sd cards inserted, it wouldn't connect and when they unplugged it, it connected.
i mean it could've been that inaddition to unplugging the sd card they may have configured other settings in their routers but i just wanted to ask the community to be sure. i guess sometimes you read these threads over and over when trying to fix a problem, you get kind of paranoid of other problems that might occur. i just read it somewhere so thank you everyone for clearing this fact up with the wii-owner community.
i appreciate the input!
** btw 1gb kingston sd cards from buy.com is $6 w/ free shipping and using google checkout http://www.buy.com/retail/product.as...519&adid=17662
