For my program I would like to download a txt or xml file of my server that contains info and I can't find a good example of how to do it. I also want to send files over the network and save them to the SD card or USB devise. Have an app on my PC that will send a file like a mp3 and then the Wii will save it to one of the devices. Thanks.

Do you know about BSD sockets? If you don't, here is a good tutorial [tutorial]. If you already know about socket programming, then sending a file isn't too much different than sending a text message. Instead of sending a string of text, you just use a pointer to a buffer containing your file. If you need an example of something similar, then make a simple program to download a website (Look at the http protocol, it isn't very difficult). This would also allow you to download that txt or xml from your server. Good luck.

@g_man are those the same sockets you use to make online multiplayer games?
