    There will probably be lots of data downloaded to the Wii automatically so using a dial-up will be out of the question.

    It is tough possible to do this via a XP computer, if you buy a USB Wlan stick that supports creating a software base-station for client wlan devices to connect to like this one:ZyXEL ZyAIR G-220 - WLAN USB

    Then you enable internet connection sharing from your dialup modem to the USB wlan and then your Wii (and obiously you have a DS also ) is connected to the internet.

    If you still have Dial-up, just buy Broadband. It's 10 times faster, and in some cases (optimum online) cheaper.

    Like they said, you need to either have access to a public hot spot, have an internet connection with a WiFi enabled wireless router, or a WiFi usb(or pci) adapter. And actually in most semi-large cities, the broadband is far far far far far more than 10 times faster. For example, through mediacom I have 10 MB cable internet.

    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.
    #1 - It can. One will probably have to be put into a bridged mode and used as a hub. Only one device can actually act as a router (that manages your internet connection). My suggestion is this - just use the wireless router - most of them have ethernet ports and, as such, can also act as a wired router (so you can plug your bro's computer into it, too). This way, you only have one peice of equipment to fight with rather than two - which can potentially be a hassle.

    #2 - The Wii can only connect via Wireless out-of-the box (It does not have an ethernet port bulit-in). Now, you can buy an accessory that converts one of th Wii's USB ports into an ethernet port. It's $30, but if you do that, you'll be able to use an ethernet cable to connect your Wii to the internet.

    No stress, man - just ask, and we'll do our best to help you; we're all in this together, ya know...

    EDIT: @ spitfire - having a wired connection will make the connection stronger than a wired one, but plugging a wireless router into a wired router doesnt affect the signal. I know that's probably not what you meant, but I just wanted to clarify in case Zori didn't catch it.

    Actually you can bridge two routers and they will both act as a router and a bridge. Used to connect multiple LAN segments each behind it's own router.

    ah, see - I didn't know that, vagrant. Most of the equipment I have is kind of old... He'd still have to mess with the settings on the routers and put them both into bridged mode, though, right? Or have they made it to where the routers do that themselves?

    Nah, you still have to go to the routers menu and change it so its running in bridge mode. Assuming you have a router that will allow bridge mode. None the less it would still make more sense to just have your brother use the Wireless router, instead of bridging two routers.

    I mean, even though its a wireless router it will still have around 4 ports for wired connections.

    could you use your computer as the router, my comp is setup for lan gaming, could I possibly get to the internet connection through a network and USB them together?

    Maybe you do not know... but not everyone has access to broadband, although I have no idea of how many don't. I know you weren't talking to me... anyhows, you can get broadband in my town/city, but not in the area I live.

    Hmm, so yea... I hope there is some way to beable to access the internet from a 56Kbit dialup connection, as to download Virtual Console games. I do think it will be possible, but I dunno. I don't know anyone with broadband and such either, or of any wireless access points, so I dunno :\.
