    put wii online without pc

    can anyone help with what might be a seen as a dumb question,
    i have no pc or laptop at home but want to get my wii online, so is it poss for me to get broadband, hook the wii up to a wireless router supplied by the internet provider and get online without having to configure any setting as you would do on your pc

    It is possible to hook your wii up to the net via a wireless router however there might be some configuration that you need to do first on the wireless router like putting on a password or so and I am afraid it has to be done on a PC. But if you buy the wii LAN adapter you could draw a wire from the broadband modem and directly into the wii and then it would be on the net.

    with the amount of trouble people have with their wii connections, its likely you will need to change settings and play around..

    do a quick search for neighbours open wireless networks, naughty naughty

    Yeah you are right that is another option. There is most likely a open wireless network out there.

    There is minor setup that requires a PC, but what you could do is set it up on a friends PC and take it home and do the password, WEP, SSID, port forwarding, and other settings on the Wii using the Opera web browser on the Wii (it is possible), to access the settings, figure out your router's IP, usually 192.168.1.1, the red 1 is interchangable between either 1, 2, or 0, some other routers may run off of a different IP altogether, just read your router's manual for the correct IP, I usually use either my Wii or my PSP to change router settings since they are more central or more portable than my computers

    As others said, a computer would be needed to initially setup the connection, but after that you could just have the router hooked into your cable/dsl modem and never touch it.
    See if you can borrow a friends wireless enabled laptop for your install date.
