    You can buy a router for around $10, probably cheaper than that lan adapter.

    They are not that easy to hack, just don't use wep. Are you that concerened about someone wardriving your house? I would be more concered about a pc without a hardware firewall infront of it. Just encrypt with WPA2 and you should be fine. I can't be sure, but I think the wii only has 1 hispeed usb port, which we use for usb loading- not sure how that will effect your lan preformance if you use the other.

    I believe you can plug the adapter into the inside port and you can still use the outside port for HD etc. Ordered from Ebay so will find out in the next few days. Cheers for advise...

    Nintendo WiFi adaptor is a no go, to easily hacked, besides I don't think they make them anymore. I bought a wireless router and plug it into my other router when I need to use it for hacking needs or to go on line with the DSi, otherwise I leave the WiFi router unplugged. I haven't seen where anyone has hacked my router, yet. I see that wpa2 hasn't been hacked yet, is that true?

    Besides, some of the hacks will not work with the LAN adaptor, like the hermes cIOS installer.

    wep is easy to hack, wpa is harder, and wpa2 even harder. To hack your wifi someone would have to have constant access to your signal in order to capture enough packets with wireshark to break your key. This easy with wep, but still takes time, the others are probably hackable like everything else- but who whats to take that time just to hack some home lan. Many large corporations relay on secure wifi, so your home should be safe.
