    Wi-Fi USB Connection for Wii

    Would I have to use the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector or would I be able to use something like Ashton Digital Air Dash WRUB-2011i Wireless USB Stick
    http://reviews.cnet.com/Ashton_Digit...-30576973.html ? If I do have to use the Nintendo brand, would that also create a wireless connection for a laptop or is it exlusively for the DS and Wii only? Sorry if this quesiton is answered elsewhere, I searched and couldn't find it anywhere. Thanks for the help.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can use the USB connector. There's a specific thing for it in the internet settings..

    Wii's have a built in wireless receiver anyway, so if you have a compatible wireless router already, you should be able to sync up right out of the box.

    I don't have a wireless router. Just a wired one so I was looking into getting my Wii connected online.

    for the price you'd pay for that usb adapter, you can buy a wireless router, have you shopped for any wireless routers?

    Haven't shopped around for a wireless router. Haven't had a need for one until now.

    Heres a usb lan adapter thats claimed to work with Wii, it says its a Nintendo usb lan adapter, but I'm not sure if it's Nintendo brand or not, I don't know what Nintendo has readily available for usb lan adapters. This one is only $30.

    you can check ebay, www.newegg.com, or locally even if you don't feel like shopping online.. Before you buy though, verify it's compatible for the Wii, there's a list of known compatible routers, just do a search in google.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Microsoft-MN-700...QQcmdZViewItem is the exact one I use, so it's guaranteed to work.
