    LAN connection help.

    So I looked on Nintendo.com on how to hook the Wii up to the internet. It said use either the wireless router, or the LAN connector for cable or broadband. Since I have broadband i figured I'd use the LAN kit for this. Now has anyone used the LAN kit with success? I was thinking it would be simple to set up until the last step had something to do with an ethernet cable. Do I need to buy a ethernet cable or will it come with one? Thanks.

    This LAN Adapter for a PC works great with the Wii. It is truly Plug and Play. Plug it in, power light on adapter comes on, attack a live Ethernet cable and LAN lights up, and goto your wii settings and select wired connection and your DONE. I use this.

    do you mean the games on Virtual Console?

    those can be played whether on or offline as long as you've got it bought and downloaded already. hope that answered your question.

    no, VC is old games you can download for a price. there is no paying to play online games (such as Medal of Honor, Dragonball Z, guitar hero 3, ect..). there is no "xbox live" with nintendo right now.
    do you have DSL or cable? if you have cable, you'll need a router. if you have DSL, you might want a router so you dont have to swap wires all the time.

    I don't remember if it came with an ethernet cable, but if it did, it was probably only long enough if you had your Wii right next to your computer. You can get a good 20ft cable for $20-$30.

    I should just use wireless, because I'm able.
    I just don't want people to steal it from me.
