First of all, you have to take apart your Wii. Once you take it apart, you should be looking at this something like this (Note the red box.In this area we will work):
Now you need to solder four wires into your wii. The blue arrow in photo above, iis where you want to route your wire so that it goes out
through the back of the Wii.NOTE: The image below illustrate the usage of 6 wires on the cable. This tutorials instructions only requires 4.
Now after soldering the 4 small wires to the highlighted areas on the board, attach them to the DB9 Male connector.
Now you need a place to put the connector. Cut a hole in your Wii. The spot in the photo below is the best place.
Cut each end of the Network Patch cable and choose 4 wires, strip their ends and place them on the DB9 Female and DB25 Male connectors.
You are done.It is recommended to keep the wii open until you are sure everything is OK.
