    WiFi uses you're internet connection. I suggest you get Netgear router and not Linksys or anything. Well, just get anything other than Linksys.

    Yeah, you know, that computer stuff sounds like Portuguese to me. But I'll keep that in mind.

    Go to ebay. They got Netgear routers as cheap as $20.

    Hmm, I've installed Linksys routers in hundreds of clients offices and home and never had a problem. Mostly I stick with the WRT54G, so that may be where other's have had issues.

    You have 2 choices that are both reasonably inexpensive. Either get a wireless router or get a Wii USB adaptor. Both use your current internet connection so you don't pay extra to use it and should cost around $40 or $50.

    A router connects to your modem and then shares the internet connection with your computer and Wii.

    A Wii usb adaptor plugs into your computer and then shares the internet connection with the Wii wirelessly.

    Both will give your Wii wi-fi access but the router would be better if you ever want to connect more computers or other wireless devices.

    It's useful to have your Wii connected as you can download updates, new channels, buy VC games and play wi-fi enabled games online.
