    wired online connection doubt

    I've searched and found in different sources that I can use my ethernet cable and plug it into the wii, but I'm kind of skeptical, I don't have any kind of wireless connection and can't get one till much later so I'm wondering if i CAN really just plug my ethernet cable to a wii and will get instant internet... I'm buying a wii today/tomorrow and I don't want to if cant use internet connection.

    So can somebody confirm if they have just plugged a ethernet cable from their modem to the wii and if it actually worked/?

    Many many thanks in advance...

    search the forums there is ways of doing it offline, but it is harder... i recommend that you have wifi or an internet source to mod.... (bring it to a friends house to MOD)

    you need it because the upgrades and downgrades that you do to the IOS's need to go out and find the latest from the net...

    but the wads and the apps use the inet to get files that are not in the guides

    but search the forum and see if there is an offline guide...
