    Wii newbie net problems

    OK
    I have a wii.
    I have no computer, which means no internet. I also don't have wi-fi access. Can i possibly still get online?? If i can, what kind of hookup thing do i get? And how do you go about getting wi-fi access? Sorry, I'm confused!! Thanks

    Would one of your neighbors let you share their internet?

    Could be posting from school/uni/work/friends/library etc etc hehe

    You can still get a DSL connection with no PC, just will be very hard to setup.

    Get a wireless rotuer and can still use the Wii on the net

    Welcome to wiichat and enjoy your stay.
    Yeah, like mentioned above, a PC is required for the easier way to set things up, with the presence of a broadband connection ofcourse.
    Its worth a shot asking your neighbours if you could share their connection but I doubt that they will agree unless you are very close. Goodluck with whatever you do.

    Have you tried to search for an access point with the Wii yet. I was at a neighbors house playing wii with them but They are to far from my house to pick up my router. I just let the wii search for an access point anyway and it picked up 2 signals one was locked but the other was not so I connected and was online in a jiffy. They were floored that it was possible. Wifi is wifi and some people just do not protect themselves with key encryption. Worth a try if you are trying to get some Virtual Console titles.

    If you get a wireless router then plug it into an internet connection then you could get online.

    As long as the router comes pre configured and you don't have to change the settings i.e port forwarding, dmz, security, username/password etc. The best option is to get a cheap pc with a network card so you can browse the net and change any settings on your router.

    Alternatively you could get a wired adapter and manage the router through your wii. Changing it to wireless if you need to move it out of cable range
