    Can I use a usb cable to connect to the internet?

    Hi! I want to connect my wii to my internet, but my wireless internet isn't too strong. And i was thinking, instead of paying 40$ for a wireless usb connector...why don't i just buy a 10$ usb Cable...?

    So i was wondering if i could possibly use this:

    <a href="http://photobucket.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h9/Smurfman911/506-356.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>

    and connect one end to my wii, and the other end to my computer's usb port.

    Would this work just as well as the wireless wifi usb connector? (if u don't know what that is...it's this...

    Thank you for your help!

    The Wii has usb ports? Wow guess I should have actually looked at it instead of ripping it out of the box and quickly hooking it up to play it lol.
