    Under the Wii settings, you'll notice that you can edit the console nickname for your Wii. What does this do? Will this be the name that displays when you play online, or do you just call it whatever the heck you want? Sorry, I don't own any WiFi games, so I wouldn't know.

    I just named mine "Oathkeeper" because it's from Kingdom Hearts and it sounded cool.

    It's nothing really, I think Nintendo has plans to use it in the future but for now it's just an idle feature.

    well as far as i know it is not used in wifi games, it is just a console nickname as far as i know,

    also the online code is shown when either you look on your message board, or for example on strikers your friends code is shown when u go too addd a friend

    Does anyone know if it's for a network ID? Like the console nickname will show up as a computer in your router's DHCP clients table?

    I always thought it was for the Wii Games. Or wait, is there another Edit Console Name thing? Ahh, I'm so lost!

    I think its just the name of your console. like "dave's wii". Nothing terribly special about it

    I imagine it's mainly for local network options to be used in the future. I always thought that you named your Wii for the same reasons why your PCs have names (once again, to easily associate with the device while looking through network lists), though we have yet to see expanded home networking features even suggested from Nintendo.

    Nothing as of yet. Many had hoped that it would be your online username, but obviously that has not yet happened and most likely won't.

    Another possibility is that it is for finding a lost wii, similar to writing your name and phone number on the tag of a clothing article.

    When I connect to the USB adapter it should come up there, like on the DS Emma comes up... And occasionally, some hacker in the neighbourhood.

    If it was used online, hello, isn't Wii about playing together? I'm not having to change my username every freaking time I want to swap from y sister's name to my name.

    I am pretty sure that the name is just something to use to refer to your console.
