    Wireless card connection

    I connect to the internet through a wireless card for my laptop.
    Can I connect my Wii to the internet through the laptop via a usb cable.
    If so where do I get the cable as it looks different than a normal usb cable connector on the Wii end.

    Thanks for the help

    Ummm...if it's picking up a wi-fi signal, the Wii has it's own wireless card.

    You might even be able to use it. But turning it off will increase your chances.

    Do you mean you're connecting to a router using the wireless card? Or is it a cell wireless?

    Yes. Sprint Mobile Broadband or Edge to be more specific.

    Then you will have to ask someone more knowledgeable in networking.

    There's probably a way, but it's not my area of expertise. Sorry man.
