    Do you have to have high speed internet to get online with the Wii or can you do it with dial up. Also if you arn't supposed to get on with dial up is there a way around it. Because with my 360 you arn't supposed to be able to get on Live without high speed so I have to link it to my dial up connection through my computer.

    Hrm, maybe for small (even large) downloadable content... but probably not to play games.

    Either way a faster internet connection is obviously recommended.

    Well I play games on my 360 on Live and it works fine and with suprisingly little lag.

    eww dial up, just upgrade dude, so much better. of course if its a money issue then you should do fine anyways, you might lag on more intense games like super smash bros brawl though

    Im in the same boat as you. I'm going to use dial-up for things. Probably mostly just to check out what can be done and how slow it is but..

    Over here I've got fast internet, but the thing is due to NZ's "tailgating" progress to technology, I only have a 1GB cap due to how expensive it is (used only for browsing the net).

    Given that, we're all in the same boat.

    you probably do lag, you just don't really notice it client side, but everyone else laughs at you.

    i really hope i dont run into you on live, it would be a laggy game.

    And you wont notice the lag, the other people will notice it though.

    But i dont think i have anything to worry about cause i dont think you go on live with the 360.

    Well no one else has ever said anything to me about it. And usually my ping is under 200 so it must not be too bad.

    Actually some of the more modern 56k connections are comparable to some DSL.

    It helps that 56k is now the minority, less cloggage of the lines and such. But it's definatly not the complete crap it used to be.

    Ya. Mine isn't that bad and our telephone lines are getting upgraded tonight! That means a better connection and the possibility for highspeed!

    I might have to do this, do not have broadband yet. But I will have it soon. I will share my dial up wirelessly. Just get a cheap router, since everything will be in one room I do not need to worry about distances.
