I had a director at a casino who wanted to put down GB cables down to run the slot machine gaming floor. and this was in 2009. that would've been costly and unnecessary. how a fat *** moron received that position was beyond me. Well to be fair if you are running cables anyway you better make sure it's at least Cat5e and Gigabit capable. The cost gap between Cat5 and Cat5e is trivial especially when you take into account the cost of installation which will be the bulk of the cost. When I got cables put in to various rooms I made sure it was Cat6, not because I thought I needed 10Gbps anytime soon but because it would have been maybe $115AU vs the $120AU per-run it ended up being. As for updates along the lines of this thread in general. I unplugged my HDD from my Wii U because I had realised I wasn't anywhere near using the full 32GB yet. I'm sure I will eventually but probably by then I'll throw in a powered one. Either way I have not plugged in the Ethernet adapter and it's most definitely running better than it was when wireless. So BAM, there you go. It's definitely doing 100Mbps even when plugged into the Wii U.
