Nintendo Wii Ethernet kit

Gamers were pretty sceptical about Nintendo’s online play for the Wii console over Wi-Fi. Would it be similar to the connection that the DS features?

With no connection over an Ethernet port, if you didn’t have access to Wi-Fi, online gaming seemed to be out of your reach… until now.

For people without a wireless-enabled router, this would mean purchasing a new router or the almost non-existent Nintendo WiFi Connector (that USB dongle thingy). But with the Ethernet Kit available, non-wireless gamers have nothing to worry about.

Those of you who connect your DS to the internet with the Nintendo WiFi Connector can use the same device to connect the Wii. And most wireless routers will also be compatible with the Wii’s built-in WiFi technology.
