    Why do you need to use a USB wifi? Your WII comes with build in wifi.

    Did you plug the USB dongle into your computer and have it running to use the Wii online?

    did you install the software if any that came with the usb wifi ? how old is your computer some new usb devices require usb2.0 i think thats the number not sure need to check on that..have you tried putting it in another usb port? also check to see if all usb ports are enabled go to start , then control panel, then administrative tools , and computer management and then click on device manager , and on the bottom of the list is universal serial bus controller click on the little positive and should show all your usb ports right click on each one and go to properties and look to see if the port is enabled if its not enabled enable it and try it out. hold up you mean a usb wifi for your pc right not the wii as someone has stated wii already has a built in wifi..?

    OMG you put the dongle in the wii didnt you.......... ffs the wii has built in wifi you put the usb connector in you computer and install drivers then the wii sees you cpu as a router and connects if you set it up right and dont have a wireless router in which case you wouldnt need the usb connector also you need broadband so if you have got dialup or isdn it wont work

    Troubleshooting Wired Routers
    The Wii LAN Adapter is required to connect the Wii console to a wired router. The Wii LAN Adapter will be available the first week of January, 2007. Non-Nintendo LAN Adapters are not compatible with the Wii console. You can still connect with the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, or by purchasing a wireless router.

    After installing the software, my computer freezes and I constantly have to reboot, I did a search on google, but all I could find was a few people who encountered the same problem, but couldn't find a solution.

    I'm just glad I finally figured out why my computer was being so crappy.
