No, i agree that it's totally stupid
It kinda worked out for me because DS obviously came before Wii, and DS online before Wii online, and that kinda forced me to step up the game of convincing my parents to get DSL with a wireless router, and finally upgrade from Dial-up anyway, so i was already set up for WFC
here at college, though, it's a nightmare. Wii just refuses to read my college's wifi (so does my DS, and my laptop isn't too friendly with it, even if it does work). I spent $15 on a Sabrent LAN adapter (which, according to WiiLi.org, was supposed to be compatible), but i can't get it to work, and don't want to spend $25 on the Nintendo one which is guaranteed to work, leaving my Wii with only temporary Wi-Fi access, as i have to plug in my old Linksys router
The point is, i just never understood why they didn't. Despite the fact that i do find WiFi superior (except for hardcore downloading like torrents), it just makes no sense to not cover that most basic thing
