    I successfully softmodded my wii the other day using the 'Softmod Any Wii Guide' and I have a wifi connection going in my house. I have not let my wii connect to the net yet as I'm not 100% certain what I can do and not do while its connected. I know the homebrew channel needs the connection to use it's features.

    Can I leave it connected all the time knowing that it wont update anything and brick it?

    What shouldn't I do while its connected?

    Can I play online multiplayer games worry free?

    Sorry if I sound a bit of a noob, I'm just glad I got it working and I don't wanna do anything stupid and knacker it.

    Thanks in advance for any info given regarding this.

    It's safe to leave connected and to play games online as long as you don't use cheats

    Thanks Hatsu, yeah it did help. It will ask me anyway before it wants to update wont it?

    After reading the first line, i can see I dont have anything to worry about as I don't have that installed on the wii [​IMG]

    What I will ask though, I know you say it's safe to have it connected to the net, Is it also safe to have the WiiConnect24 enabled too? It asks all sorts of agreements before it ran so I didnt go thru with it. Any info?

    Even if your Wii isn't modded, it's safer to leave WiiConnect24 off. Although, it is safe to have it on while "Standby Connection" is off.

    Also, there are a few apps which will disable updates if you want.

    Preloader is another one but I have never used it and not sure weather Preloader (.29, .30...) or Priiloader is the way to go.

    I don't know if its been enabled or not, my brother modded the wii for me. If I click into it, it wants me to accept all the terms and conditions. I'm presuming its past that where you have the options to turn it on or off?

    Ive not used a wii before, only played on my brothers now and again. I got the wii purposly to hack it. I know quite a bit about PC's and i've a DS which I have roms on. I'm new to this wii softmodding and tryin to do as much research as much as possible to get to know what i'm doing.

    Yeah, once you turn WC24 on, it'll give you the option to have Standby ON/OFF.

    WC24 is mainly for send messages to your mates and usefull in Animal Crossing (which I haven't played).

    If you are worried and the T&C, then just leave it off.
