comes with a cable about 6' (2m) long. if you need a longer one, go onto www.newegg.com or www.tigerdirect.com for premade ones, unless you can make your own. buying in stores is usually more expensive (mostly at like bestbuy, circuit city, the bigger stores)
I bought one friday and figured out that i didn't have an extra ethernet port. Yes, I do have a cable connection. Now other than the router, I can buy a ethernet splitter online. Is the Wii online really worth all this work?
you didnt have an extra ethernet port on your router?
if correct: buy a switch. a switch is different than a router. it has a lot less features.
is it worth the $25??? that depends on what else you might hook up to it.
i plan on having a router downstairs (at the modem). i will run an ethernet cable to my room. with that 1 ethernet cable i will put a switch on it. my PC, Wii, and Xbox will be connected to it. so to me it's worth the $ and and the ports on my router.
hope you followed that. networks can get confusing. i learned by trial and error which kinda sucks and can be a waiste of $.
I went to best buy and a worker there told me I needed a router. The router also needs to be encrypted? For a 'low price' of $160 they will do it there. So I didn't know if all that money was worth it.
