    Wii has wifi built in, but you also need to have a wireless network in your house to take advantage of it (i.e. wireless router). Alternatively , you can buy a USB wireless access point specially for Nintendo DS/Wii which costs about $40 (is that what you are talking about?). This USB device plugs into your computer and allows your wii to use your computers wired network access. This is usefull if you don't already have a wireless router for your computer.

    ^^^
    Or you can buy the Wii USB Lan Adapter for the same price and less setup hassle and just run a network cable directly to your wii.
