    Opera is not 99$. It's 10$ worth of points

After the six month trial, you can either unsuscribe, or pay $99 (U.S.) to buy it.

    But where is where the offer really gets good: once you pay the first $99 fee, the Opera web service isfree. That's right. There is no by monthly service charges. One payment, and that's it.
    *Note* I think that Nintendo uses their own internet to link Wii's together.
    This is the BIGGEST load of rubbish I have ever seen. Firstly, the guy was asking how you connect to the internet. The response would be that you need an Internet Service Provider (preferably get broadband) and a modem which should be provided by the ISP. Then plug the modem into the Wii through one of it's USB ports. If you get a wireless modem you don't even need to plug it in as the information will be sent wirelessly (magically) through the air.

    Now to Shade

    1. Why were you talking about the Opera Browser. The Opera Browser has nothing to do with you connecting you to the internet. It just allows you to browse websites. It is not necessary for online gaming

    2. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR? There are no subscriptions for the Wii. NONE AT ALL.

    3. If you buy your Wii before July you get Opera free. Fullstop. If you buy your wii after July and want the Opera browser you can buy it with Wii points but it WILL NOT be $99. It will be nowhere near that. More like $10.

    4. Never post again, (not really)

    Listen Arcadium. All you'll need is a wireless internet connection, so you either need a router, or you need to jack it from a hot spot (Starbucks, McD's, neighboors, lol)

    A few questions of possible options im thinking of.
    1) My wired router is currently provides my brother's computer with an internet connection. My friend offered to give me a wireless router for free so if I also connect that to my computer having 2 routers now, will that in any way affected my connection or my bros(won't be connecting wireless to his comp, itll still be the wired).
    2) This ones shorter :P The ethernet cable that connects from the wired router to my bros comp. If I use another one of those and plug it into one of the other jacks on my router will I be able to connect that to the Wii and get internet like that? Does the Wii have a jack for it and is it compatible?

    Sry know its long im just stressing dont wanna hold this off.

    It will only make the siganl stronger Zori, and easier to pick up, as long as the routers are not peices of crap.

    Is there a way to connect with dial-up does anybody know. I don't expect to be doing any gaming online, but I wouldnt mind downloading some of those classic games!

    No prob, Zori! As for you DarkDepths, I won't rule it out completely but chances that the Wii is online capable (considering it's WiFi) with a dial up connection are about 00.01 out of 100. So sorry, but no. Just find a friend who has wireless internet or lives close enough to a hotspot (Starbucks, McD's, etc) and take it there then download. Hope I helped

    hey

    @DarkDepths: I think it will probably be possible. Well I also have dialup, and I use Linux, so I don't think that Nintendo USB WiFi adaptor or whatever would work for me. But I'd just get the Nintendo Wii Ethernet adaptor, and then connect it to my computers Network Card with a Crossover Cable, and then try figure how to share my internet connection.

    @Spitfire_K: Why does it matter if it's WiFi??? Sorry, I don't really know much about such things :\.
