    could always just buy a gamecube with and a lan adapter for a hundred bucks or less... im kinda freaked about even tossing a GC disk in the wii with all the people saying theres are getting stuck in it... lan adapters now are only 25 30 bucks... an a GC can be had for 75 bucks or less...

    If gamecube discs are getting stuck in the Wii, somebody is shoving the discs in, which is abuse, I put gamecube discs in my Wii all the time (it was built for that), my Wii still works fine, but then, unlike most people, I don't push my discs in, I just let it fall in in a way until the grabber takes the disc and takes it in, as for the Wi-Fi card in the Wii, it's just hardware, network connection hardware to be specific, all you have to do is put software on the Wii to tell the gamecube portion to connect through the Wi-Fi card, the gamecube portion of the Wii is not a gamecube itself, it's just a mode in the Wii to play gamecube games, and i'm pretty sure that since the Wii has gamecube compatibility, the gamecube compatibility will work with the wireless card, if you have tried this and it dosen't work, maybe there needs to be an update for it, if you have not tried it, but thought that since the gamecube didn't have wireless compatibility, that the Wii's wireless card won't work on the gamecube portion, at least try it out before saying it dosen't work, because it might

    The Wifi IS a ethernet adapter. At the heart of it, anything that runs the ethernet protocol is an ethernet adapter. There should be no reason it wouldnt work. Until someone trys and says yay or nay, I going to have to vote for yay. But I would love it if someone tried.

    I read elsewhere online the Gamecube is NOT aware of the LAN capabilities built into the Wii. There is no way to make this work right now.

    It might not because they had to reprogram the online engine for the Wii, but backwards compatibility is what nintendo wanted so it probably is...
    It's not forward compatible though...

    I am in a networking class, in this networking class I have to learn everything from plugging in cables (easy) to memorizing the OSI model (eh, i'd say medium, not hard), and everything in between, setting up servers, routers, learning DOS commands (yes, you have to know DOS commands for networking), understanding IPv4 and IPv6, and other networking related things, including all the protocols

    Out of all that, I can say that I have never heard of a protocol called an ethernet protocol, and I know my share of protocols

    Ethernet is a cable, not a protocol, ethernet is a cable with 4 sets of 2 wire pairs, so, you guessed it, it has 8 wires in all, and I know the color code by heart, 568A and B (B is most commonly used), the type of cabling ethernet is known as is twisted pair (which is where you get 4 sets of 2 pairs, the twisting process, you may of heard of UTP and STP, same thing)

    The protocol that you are thinking of is IP, Internet Protocol, a set of 4 octets (8 bianary digits translated into the decimal numbering system), you may of heard of 192.168.1.1, that is a common IP for routers and wireless access points, 192.168.100.1 is the IP of most broadband modems

    Anyway, what I mean to say by this is wireless is not an ethernet protocol, it has nothing to relate to protocols, wireless is off of Wi-Fi and wired is ethernet

    You bet your ass Ethernet is a protocol. Ethernet is the single most common layer 2 protocol in use today. Ethernet uses CSMA/CD. I could go on but you can read more about it at http://www.javvin.com/protocolEthernet.html

    Wireless, Wi-Fi or 802.11b/g/n/a exist on the first layer of the OSI model, as does cat5 cable which is usually referred to as Ethernet cable. Ethernet itself is a protocol that exists on the second layer of the OSI model. Because it exists on the second layer, anything on the first layer can provide a way for anything on the second layer to work. Therefore, Ethernet will work on cat5 cabling OR Wi-Fi.

    192.168.0.0/16 is one of 3 private, "non-routable" address spaces for use on private networks and NOT to be used on the Internet.

    Now if you really want to impress me, tell me how error detection is done on cat5 cable or tell me what CIDR is and why it exists.

    Thank you mym6 for setting that guy straight. For memorizing the OSI model layers, seemed you missed that day in class when they discussed layer 2.
