    does anyone use USB wifi dongle?

    is this with or without a router?

    is it possible to use the USB dongle and no router? if so can someone let me know how you would get this recognised as a wireless network...

    Thanks

    You don't need a router if you are going to use the dongle. Just plug it in, follow the instructions and you are good to go. I personally hate those things and prefer a wireless router though.

    You use a wifi dongle if you haven't got a router, it's like an alternative.

    Install the dongle by inserting the disk, following the on screen instructions etc etc..

    Then go to your wii, and the menu bit, click on internet, then connections or something, and set up a new connection.

    Choose the wirelless option, then it will ask if it's via a router or a wifi dongle. Obviously chose the wifi dongle.

    Then you'll have to make sure the wifi dongle is plugged in, then you will have to 'allow' your wii to use the dongle, you do this by 'granting permission' on the computer.

    Then it will do a connection test and if that's successful then you're good to go

    Oh and I expect rep for this

    It may not be cheaper to use the dongle. And with a wireless router, there are 4 wired ports to plug in your PC without wireless NIC. To me, I found the wireless router approach to be easier. Don't pay more than $20 for a g router. Look for deals.
    With the dongle approach, don't you need to keep you computer running to get the Wii on the net?
