    Hi Guys

    So my basic setup is Wii modded with Wifi connected to my router. Currently, my comp (Wifi) shares a folder which is read via Wifi to Wii WiiMC

    I am going to be connecting my Router with a NAS via Ethernet now (NAS and Router is GigaBit port)

    Just wondering, currently I know 720p cannot be streamed on Wii due to (possible??) hardware shortfall?

    Just wondering, if I buy a USB to Lan Adapater and then connect that to my router..

    and share stuff of my NAS for viewing.. Basically Wii USB LAN Router Gig Port NAS Gig Port

    Will that give me better performance then the current Wii G Wifi Router N Wifi NAS Gig Port?

    Just trying to see advantage / disadvantage before I buy of a USB to LAN Adapter?

    Also I guess I still won't manage to stream 720p movies..

    It will only prevent wireless dropouts, the network speed will still be crap.
