    Hey guys. I was going thru a few things of he wii. They have 2 USB ports which means that you can use those usbports for many things -grins-
    And i have rounded it up for people like me without wireless internet.. Is there an ethernet cord available that has USB plugs? If so this could mean connecting the wii to your internet having you./.. Having a conection to wiiconnect24!

    Yep, I'm in the same position. Don't want to get wireless. Will get that Ethernet > USB cable instead.

    Check the source on that wiki article. It links to Nintendo's specs which says
    Notice it says nothing about a USB to ethernet adapter. There is an adapter available for the DS right now, but it doesn't plug into the DS at all, it uses the USB ports on your computer. There are USB to Ethernet adapters common on the market, BUT they will not work on gaming consoles. They require PC drivers to run.

    Nintendo will make a poormans wireless router that connects to the Wii via USB and to your computer probably also by USB and that will connect the two wirelessly and you will have the interweb on your Wii.

    Don't worry, Nintendo isn't stupid.

    yea but the proiblem is that they want everyone to buy wireless WELL TOO BAD lol Thanks to them for the USB ports though i think the reason for those is for pictures and stuff but im gonna use this at my own advantage ;o
    By the way i have an old USB ethernet cord that used to connect my 2 comps together For internet ( 2 computers 1 internet ) And i can use that :D I have a new one cause i moved my comp and we used a longer ethernet cord.. Ill have to find t he old one though

    Hmm, they said "USB 2.0 LAN adaptor". Not sure if they mean wireless LAN adaptor like this:

    Or wired one's like this:

    Although at one point is states: "The Wii console communicates wirelessly". Not sure if that was in reference to the IEEE thing or both...

    Yup. Heard about those, but not sure how well it works. Personally, I hope they do give a wired option, otherwise it could be a potential opening for unwanted hackers, and even more likely have data-loss.

    EDIT: I've just emailed Nintendo of Europe about this issue and am awaiting a response.

    UPDATE: Word back from Nintendo of Europe. the thing was in reference to the wireless USB key type thing. Soz, looks like those of us who are wired will have to get the USB device before we can go online.

    Except as was already posted, PC wires won't work on the consoles.

    But you aren't being forced to get wireless, you're just going to have to buy the adapter things from Nintendo which are wireless, but you won't need a wireless i-net connection.

    You need that $40 thing you plug into a pc that has internet and broadcasts a wireless signal. Just so everyone knows, a wireless router is usually cheaper, this is only convenient if you live in a hotel or the congo.

    you would be better off getting wireless, unless you have a really slow connection(512kbs or lower)

    i have a wireless adapter for 360 cus mom said i couldn't hardwire it through several rooms that she ever goes in anyway, you'dd be better off getting a 802.11G router for $20

    /end rant

    i wouldn't reccoment one so cheap. i recently bought a $20 one and i can't get a signal through the wall. and even if i'm sitting close enough to touch it, my DS still can't connect sometimes. so if your gonna go for a wireless router i reccomend a $40 one at least just for quality purposes

    Don't ask the same question twice on the forums - it's just silly.

    You will have to Invest in the Internet mate.

    Nintendo should be releasing a Ethernet Kit for the wii on the 1st of January. It will be priced at $24.99 (not sure how much in EU trying to find out now). The Adapater will go from USB to a regular RJ45 cable, this can be plugged into your wired router. If you don have a wired router then im not sure what else you can do.
