    Well, I've got my Wii and now I need to set up my internet plan. Due to the limitations imposed by the building I'm in I can either get 2mbps or 5mbps. Playing Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros Brawl online will probably chew up more bandwidth than anything else I'll be doing. Is 2mbps enough for smooth online Wii play? It's just that the 5mbps is $30 more a month and I'm on a bit of a budget.

    Thoughts?

    I have Rogers Hi-Speed lite (Download 3 MB/s Upload 256 Kb/s Monthly Bandwith 25 GB) and both my Wii and Xbox Live work just fine.
