no, you can't just connect connect your Wii to your "internet box" unlessOriginally Posted by Adamiki
that internet box is a pc which has internet connectivity or it is a router
which has LAN USB ports (which i can't think of one in existance).
you have a few options available to consider:-
1. depending upon your type of broadband (ADSL or cable) your best option would be to purchase a "wireless" router which will allow the Wii to connect wirelessly to the internet without the need for a "host" pc to be switched on (see next option).
2. get a USB to ethernet LAN adaptor and connect the Wii to a "host" pc via the PC's ethernet port. this is very similar to Windows Internet Connections Sharing (ICS).
3. buy a Nintendo or Datel Wifi USB dongle. this allows the Wii to connect wirelessly to a "host" PC to allow for internet connectivity. it's very much like option 2, but obviously, minus wires.
personally, and there will be a few here to back me up, i would go for the wireless router option. for a few more $/£ you have a device which will allow all of your pc / laptop / consoles to connect to the internet with the minumum of fuss.
