    Question Is the internet absolutely required to install the Homebrew channel + stuff?

    I'm on 56k here...what a shame. Still I have a router and tried to bridge the 56k connection without success. Do you really need a internet connection to downgrade+install homebrew channel? Can I just download stuff on wiibrew dot org and ready everything on the SD card?

    And, as last resort, is there a way to bridge 56k on a router?

    Thanks for the simple but important info!

    I found out how to bridge a 56k dial-up connection on a wireless router! I'm soo happy all my problems are solved now I can start to hack!

    The best tutorial I could find : How to: Wireless dialup at http://www.notebookforums.com/thread113829.html


    After doing this tutorial, then for the Wii I entered those options:

    Auto uptain IP address = NO

    Advanced options:
    IP address : 192.168.000.002 (the last .2 could be a different number you choose but max 254)
    Subnet mask : 255.255.255.000
    Default router: 192.168.000.001

    Auto uptain DNS = NO
    Advanced options :
    Primary DNS: 192.168.000.001
    Secondary DNS: 000.000.000.000

    Should work!
