    this was asked in "a couple of questions about wii" or something like that.

    Anyways, i think the answer is yes.

    ^^ Except that the DS only supports WEP encryption, not WAP. WAP is more secure, but it's not compatible with the DS. I don't know if the Wii will have this support or not. The DS also only supported 802.11B, which has since been replaced by G and soon to be N, so I would suspect that the Wii may have more Wireless support options.

    I really hope it supports both WEP and WPA. WEP can be cracked in about 10 minutes in many cases.

    That's why you use MAC address lock so only the systems with the known MAC address can access your router.

    I can clone a MAC address as well, still WPA and WPA2 is currently your best bet for security.

    another good thing to do is to turn off SSID broadcast. This way, it's harder to even tell that there is a network to try to crack (although, WiFi sniffers can still find it). Combine that with a MAC filter and WEP and you can definitely keep out the average war driver.
