    Squall7 meant that if you don't have a wireless router, then you can use a USB-to-ethernet cable, which comes with most routers, wired or wireless, and one end plugs into the router while the other end is USB so it would plug into one of the two USB ports on the back of the Wii.

    However, I think what you're suggesting, the USB transmitter, is also a nice alternative as long as your computer's in range.

    As for whether Wii will come with a USB-to-ethernet cable and/or USB transmitter is really unlikely. The Xbox, which was really made for online gaming, didn't include an ethernet cable, so it probably won't happen for Wii.

    I must say, I am a certified computer technician, and I have never seen (or heard of) such a cable. However, yes, the WiFi Max is also a very good alternative if you don't want to put the money into a router and have more devices than just the Wii/DS to connect.
    ... but what do I know?...

    the problem with adapters like that is that they require drivers to run, which can only be installed on a PC. If you were to plug that into a Wii, it may see a USB device, but it won't know what it is or how to use it (in layman's terms)
