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.

Always preferred that thing called wifi's.

Wires are important, yo

If you disagree, copy + paste this into your signature.

I would consider this move as a stupid one by nintendo.
