I dont think Wii has the ethernet slot, you'll need a wireless router or use that usb adapter.

The component cables can be bought either from nintendo.com or some retailers for 29.99 i think

Hmm... seems my post never showed up, guess I'll have to retype it. :glad:

Anyway, Nintendo is releasing an USB to Ethernet adapter early next year, which will run about $25- LAN Adapter. But if you want to be online now, you will have to go the wi-fi route with either Nintendo's USB key or a wireless router.

As for lag (and I'm assuming lag between controlling the game and action happening onscreen) without component cables, I haven't noticed too much on the HDTVs that Gamestop uses for their kiosks, so that may not be a concern here. Component Cables currently run $30 from Nintendo- Component Cables
