    How to connect to internet with wii?

    I've never used a console to play online before. I don't have a PC. How do I get hooked up to the net?!

    The Wii uses WiFi technology. If you don't know what that is, then go to howstuffworks.com/wifi (or something like that). Anyway, the Wii will use a program called the "Opera Web Browser". It allows you to connect to the Web via Wii. When you suscribe to Opera, you will get the first six months Opera Web service for free. 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.
    Zant was sure as hell not what or who I thought he was. He is officially the psychopath of the Legend of Zelda franchise.

    If you buy Wii before July2007, you dont need to pay anything for browser, you get the browser for free. After that you need to buy it, but it wont cost as much as you are saying. It will cost some Wiipoints, but we dont know yet how many points.


    And there is no thing like "Nintendos own internet"..
    Internet is Internet..

    That is the most n00bish question ever.
    You need a wireless router or a usb/ethernet adapter for your wii to detect a internet signal and thus connect to the internet. How did you expect it to get an internet signal?? Just magically steal your neighbors??

    You need a wireless router connected to your computer for you to have wireless, or you could possibly use the DS Wifi card, not so sure about that though. If you don't have a wireless router, you can just use an ethernet cord.

    I always thought Opera was open-source... I mean, who in their right mind would pay $99 for a browser? Firefox, ftw.
