    Ca Enabling Network.... is it safe yet?

    I probably Am going to sound like an idiot here, But before I softmodded my wii I disabled wiiconnect24. As far as I know my system isn't even connected to the network, so I may have possibly turned the network connection off. Anyways I succesfully softmodded and have priiloader all set, So, is it safe to enable the network? I'd like to have my wii connect to download all the cover art. I am jhust afraid the Big N will somehow get access to my machine and brick it. so.... is it safe?

    Having wiiconnect24 disabled isn't having the network turned off. You can go to the internet settings and configure and enable an internet connection just fine without wiiconnect24. All that is for nintendo to continuously comminicate with your wii, which for obvious reasons isn't good.

    Ok, I got that, I looked at my internet settings and wireless is enabled, I ran a connection test that said it was succesful, THEN IT ASKED ME TO UPDATE!!! i said no (obviously) But it appears that My internet connection has been working the whole time, So i'm wondering why any programs using a network connection say my networks failed.
