    Please don't flame as I'm not wanting to know if I can play online. I know that a dial-up connection ruins online playing for everyone including myself. All I want to be able to do is get the latest updates, use the Wii Channels, and get games from the Virtual Console. That's all.

    So the question is.. Will I be able to use Nintendo's Wi-Fi USB Connector with my computer and 26.4kbps connection (yes I know it's horrible) to hook my Wii (when I get one) to the internet to do said things?

    Thanks in advance.

    While I do not own a WiFi adapter, I do not see any reason that it would not work.

    Well would I get the same or around the same download speeds I get here on the computer? Because I honestly have no problem with that. I've lived with this connection for years and I've gotten used to it's slowness. Would I like fast internet? Sure, lol, but it's not going to happen where I live.

    And from what I understand, the VC game files aren't that big. I've downloaded much bigger things before and I'm really probably only going to want some SNES games mostly.

    lol no I just live out in the country away from any type of high speed other than via satellite and that's worthless and cost way too much.

    Wow, you have that kind of speed! I feel bad for you :( But I guess I can understand how you feel since I didn't even get DSL until last year and I had to fight for it.

    But yeah, surely you can use it. But like someone said, it's going to be incredibly slow and dealing with the updating and stuff, I don't know how long that will even take for you.

    Well like I said, if i can get the same download speeds i have now (around 2.9k on a good day, which I know isn't much), I'll have absolutely no problem with the speed. Then again, I don't know if you can get much lower than that lol so I guess I'll try it if I can find a Wii next week in stock to buy.

    omg. i rememeber when i had dial up. took weeks to download stuff. it will work but it might be a little slower because it isnt a direct connection (but not by much but then again, you arnt working with much to start with lol). you might have to leave your Wii on for a while (days maybe for the larger games) for it to download some ROMS on that slow of a connection

    That may be true but it doesn't mean that DSL is as available to everyone as dial-up is.

    Well like I said, i'd be mostly getting SNES games which, from what I understand, the file sizes aren't that bad at all on them. I do have another question tho. Are the Wii updates (so far) usually a big size or something I could probably work with? Like 10MB at the max
