    Playing Backups via wifi???

    So I'm a softmod noob. I have a drivekey modded wii updated to 4.2U. A few days ago I followed the 4.2 softmod guide and all seems to be well. I have an external drive plugged into my wii and can play iso files from it. I have also seen posts that talk about backing up games via wifi but I would like to know if I can play games stored on a network drive via wifi?

    It is quite possible that the answer is somewhere in the forums already but being a father/husband/full time student/apartment manager I don't exactly have a ton of spare time to read forums for hours on end. I did a search for "wifi" and only came up with backing up games over wifi. So if someone could point me in the right direction it would be very helpful. Thanks

    It's been asked dozens of times and is probably hard to to find. A Wifi connection would be too flaky to carry the amount of data the Wii would require to download when loading a game, consequently there is no solution to it. It's possible, I'm sure, but not practical.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
