    You can use the Wifi usb dongle if you have XP. But if you get a LAN adapter (wired connection), make sure you plug it directly into your modem rather than to your PC (not sure it will even work like that). As far as the wired connection goes, you will probably have to unplug your modem every time (to reset PC settings) plus have to change out the wires when you wanna hook up the Wii; it can be alot of hassle. Heard lots of stuff about the usb dongle messing up and not working, etc. Why not just get a router?

    Why would you need a laptop to use a router?

    I think that he means that his desktop is plugged straight into the modem and he doesn't want to buy a router. He's assuming that there's no use for the router since he doesn't have any wireless devices.

    To the original poster: you should indeed buy a wireless router. Not only will it solve your Wii connection problems (for not much more money than the Wii LAN adapter!), but it will give you firewall protection for your PC and you'll have a wireless network so you can allow friends, etc. with laptops to come over and use it. Trust me--it's worth it.

    Excellent advice. I've seen this scenario come up several times - and in each case by far the simplest and most functional solution is just buying a wireless router. (It's not even more expensive vs. some of the other alternate solutions where additional hardware is involved).
