    as far as im aware you will need a wireless router.

    there are no ethernet connections and you do not have any means of configuring the net connection in the wii other than using the default setup.

    you can pick them up for 25 upwards these days.

    Yes there is another way of connecting to the internet without a wireless router, that is you must have a wired router.

    I thought you just connect it the the ports which are named USB at the back of the Wii.

    I think an ethernet usb adapter dongle is planned but not released.

    However there is, I think anyway, a wireless usb dongle for your PC that will let your Wii connect.


    Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, search for it on Nintendo Store
