    Yes, sadly. The Wii shop channel, and the forcast channel both use the internet. Also, with the Mii channel, without internet you will not be able to send your favourite miis to your friends.

    Is it that you dont have a wireless router?

    You can save your Mii's to your remote and transfer them to another wii by synching your remote with that system.

    How do you get on the internet without having the internet?
    Hmmm..... let me think.
    You don't.
    Get in the 20th century and get the internets.

    i have internet access at work and have no need for it at home.

    its a bit of a shame that Nintendo are expecting everyone to have a connection.

    Erm... No they aren't.

    They're expected everyone who wants to get online to have a connection, which is more than reasonable. How else would you get online without a connection?

    the best thing to do is to go somewhere that does have internet, such as a friends house. Get it, give your friend some food, and call it a day

    You can always try moochin' off someone elses unencrypted wireless connection in your neighborhood. A 13db omni directional antenna works great when you need to ninja some internet... not that I've done this personally... :blush2:

    Upon closer inspection of my wifi setup, I don't have a 13db outdoor omni, it's really a 15db hi gain indoor corner antenna made by Hawking Technologies. But I have used it outdoors and turning it to make it omni directional to pick up lots of APs (max APs I've picked up with antenna and Netstumbler was 40) :D .

    If you're truely looking for a 13+db outdoor omni directional wifi antenna, Dlink has the 15db ANT24-1500. Cisco/Linksys also have a couple of them as well.

    I've heard that you can store VC games to the Remote as well. Can anyone confirm this? (Mines boxed up till Christmas :( )
    If so then you could download VC games at a friends house (who had a Wii and internet). And then take them home.

    Well, the website says it comes with an N to RP-SMA cable (RP-SMA connectors are what most consumer routers have).

    Since you have a Linksys, you may want to check your manual or check the internet to see if you have an RP-TNC or RP-SMA male connector on the back of your router.

    I didn't see any options, on my Wii, for me to save VC games onto the remote (or any documentation in the supplied manuals), only the ability to save up to 10 Mii's on the remote.

    What I did find in the manual was it stated you couldn't share VC games on other Wii's using an SD card. So if you downloaded it on your friend's Wii, it's not going to work on yours.
