    You can play backups online safely with no worry, once you don't use cheat codes you won't get banned. Some people say leaving your WiiConnect24 on, lets Nintendo automatically update you without asking but i've never seen this happen.

    Yes, after your softmod you can play online. What needs to be turned on depends on your mode of play. Some games use the WiFi connection; others will need WiiConnect24 to be active-MarioKartChannel uses it.

    You should try not to leave WiiConnect24 on standby all the time because of heat buildup.

    I think it's just that special Mario Kart Channel-I didn't know what you had and thought I should mention it. Most online gameplay seems to use just the WiFi so try that first.
