    Using a Laptop as an external wireless antenna/receiver ?

    I apologize for the double post.

    Ok, i recently purchased the superfly awesome Nintendo Wii.

    I had no idea it was capable of wireless connection, so the fact that i have wireless around the house is perfect right ? well apparently not!

    I understand now from reading other threads, that the Wii isnt compatible with some routers.

    So heres my question. I have a new laptop that has a powerful wireless antenna/receiver that has no problem picking up my wireless signal all around the house, so i was wondering, if i were to purchase the Wii USB adapter and software and attach the Wii USB adapter to my Laptop, (Which would be in close proximity at all times to the Wii console) would my Wii console then infact be able to use my laptop's wireless reiciever/antenna.

    Does the Wii USB adapter only work for computers with a direct "Hardwired" LAN connection to the internet ?

    Or is my theory correct that the Wii will simply be talking to a computer with an active internet connection and thats all that matters ?

    Does the software included with the Wii USB adapter somehow only allow for LAN settings through a computer ?

    Basically, i want to use my laptop as an external antenna.
