    HardWired NetWork HDD

    Network.jpg

    The above diagram is my current home network which includes a Apple extreme router, a 2 TB network HHD, and my v4.3 Wii. My question is with this current set up can i use the hard drive in the same way I would a USB drive? I understand this set up might be more difficult to approach through a Mac setup but I've used this set up successfully with my AppleTV and i'm hoping that with some oversight I can use the HD with the Wii to have a nice game library set up. If this set up isn't going to work what would be the best approach with my Mac systems in place.

    Loading games through a network is simply not supported on the wii. The only way you will ever be able to play games of a HDD is to directly connect it to the wii.
