Shane Satterfield(Gametrailers Editor-in-chief) has confirmed that the Wii U has no ethernet port. This means the only way to get online on a Wii U is through wi-fi or by purchasing some sort of dongle.
Hehe....."dongle". Always liked that word.
I am enlightened. The trick is to realize blind loyalty is a waste on all levels. Xbox 1 is for me because it caters to me more. I plan to have a hell of a time with it :).
Also have a 3DS. Friend code is 0275 8124 7352
If you have an Ethernet adapter for Wii, it will work with the Wii U. I still have mine.
Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.
