    Hi guys :) Sorry for the stupid question but regarding a wifi usb adaptor thingie!!!

    Hi guys, I'm thinking of buying a USB connector to plug into my laptop to get my WII online as i'm at Uni and we are forced to use ethernet cables to get on the net!!

    I was looking at Argos and wondering if something like this would work and what I need to do to get it online? I heard that theres special software or something that only a nintendo thingie will work

    Also if anyone knows any mainstream highstreet stores in the UK that I could buy something similar? Would rather go into town to get it tommorow as i'm impatient rather than wait till next week hehe

    Those ones should work.

    You could try the Official Nintendo one by searching on these sites from the top of my head which might be down your street.

    Toys 'R Us
    PC World
    Currys
    Comet
    Dixons
    Woolworths
    GameStation
    GAME
    John Lewis
    HMV
    Zavvi

    And possibly other places.
