    What if we dont have WiFi?

    So i understood that Wii will come with WiFi straight out of the box which means we can play watever games have online capabilities right away. What if our homes dont have wireless internet?

    I myself use a broadband service. Will i need to buy a special adapter or is there a slot on the Wii where i can plug in a cord which i could then plug in to my router?

    Sorry if this question has been asked before.

    There will be a usb adapter you can buy for your computer that will allow you to do this i have also heard there is an ethernet adapter for the console its self. If you have a Wireless router it may work with it out of the box with out an adapter. WiFi does not mean wireless internet such as virizons service it just means you have a wireless network at your home. this infering you have a cable or dsl internet service.

    Here is the adapter it works on both DS and Wii.

    I can't believe they wouldn't just stick an ethernet port on the think I mean it's virtually free, hidden away and lets people with no wi-fi connect without the dongle thing. I mean come on it can't be hard

    I suggest to invest in wireless router. More and more devices are coming into the home with wifi. I am sure it's a good investment over and above Wii.

    Yah, I recently got a wireless router/modem combo thing and I love it, half the reason we got it was to hook up old comp, other half was for the Wii.

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.
