    What wireless router are you talking about that costs over 200 dollars!? And are you seriously telling us that you're considering buying it for a videogame system? Kinda excessive if you ask me. It was hard enough forking out $50 dollars for my Wireless Router. Now I have to set it up and everything.

    Go and get the Linksys WRT54G wireless router. I got it for $95 and works like a charm with the wii, and also with my laptop.
