    Can you? The guy who put my wiikey in said that he's not sure its possible. (For clarification, switch is to turn the modchip on and off).

    Yes. Yes you can. There was a thread a while ago where people were posting diagrams and instructions, but basically, all you have to do is put a switch in the wiikey's power wire.

    Hm. Good good. I need to talk to that guy again. Maybe he was just making excuses because he didn't want to. Who knows.

    It's much easier to quicksolder a Wiikey to get it working, but to install a switch, you really need to do it with wires. Wiring it properly takes more time, and is more fiddly, but then you can easily install a switch. The guy was probably trying to mislead you, because he wanted to just quicksolder it and take your money.
