    i don't have any online games. but if I did, i'd ensure my router is placed appropriately so my wiii is connected at 54mbps and nix unneeded cables.

    I don't see why speed would be a factor. For 99% of users, wireless speed > internet speed.

    wireless here, I have my main computer/wireless router on the first floor and the wii in the basement, so there is no other way.

    Thanks. I might redo it and give the daemon perspective. I was sort of rushing when I did it the first time and didn't even think of it. :(

    It's just a standard regular network cable. You can buy them at pretty much any place that sells computer stuff.
