Wii LAN ADAPTER NOW AVAILABLE
If you want to use the online features of your Wii console and you don't have a wireless access point such as a wireless router or Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, you can use the Wii LAN Adapter to connect to a wired access point such as a wired router or broadband modem.
To connect the Wii console online with a wired connection using the Wii LAN Adapter, you will need the following:
An active broadband internet connection, such as ADSL or Cable.
Either a broadband modem or wired router with an available ethernet port.
An ethernet cable.
The Wii LAN Adapter is only available directly from Nintendo Australia for $A39.95 inc GST, with no additional charge for postage within Australia. Please contact Nintendo Customer Service on (03) 9730 9822 Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 5:00pm (EST) for ordering information.
Please note that the Wii console is capable of a wireless connection without the need for any additional accessories. If you have a router, check to see if it is wireless or not (wireless routers usually have a visible antenna). For more information on setting up a wired or wireless connection, see pages 51-58 in the Wii Operations Manual Channels and Settings included with your system.
