    Other ways to get Wii updates?

    I have a wireless network at my house and but i do not have a high speed connection, its a wireless dial up setup, and it is been trying to update for about 2 hours now. I was wondering if i there is any way to download the update from the internet some where and burn it to a cd or put it on a sd card and install the update from there.

    Might be easier to take it to your friend's house and download from his high-speed wireless connection. (Or anywhere else you can get a high-speed signal.) It would be nice to download it from PC to SD card and update from that.

    No, it must be downloaded directly from Nintendo to the Wii.

    Rent a motel room with free wireless internet and a tv. Hook it up and update away.

    If you read the thread he said he already has a wireless network, he is just on dial-up so the update feature doesn't work so well. He needs a highspeed connection.

    Other then being slow as junk it works for the purposes that i need it to. I am in a temporary house and once i move i will be getting the high speed but it works for now. The weather chan works out pretty well but the news i havent been able to get in to. I was told it takes a while to load the first time. Also the wii shop channel i am trying to get in to that now to see whats in there. I have herd this also takes a little to load, so ill go get a shower do some dishes and see how that goes, but other then the internet witch was not my reason of purchase i love my wii. cant wait till i get my other games in the mail.
