    That "box" you have is a DSL Modem. Not a router. You need a wireless router. I recommend this one:

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1051826245223

    It's not hard to set up. Here is what this will do for you:

    -Allows your Wii to connect to the internet wirelessly
    -Allows multiple computers to connect to the internet in your house
    -Allows for networks within your house

    It connects to your router by ethernet cable. If you get it and set it up it will look like this: Phone jack -> Modem -> Router -> Computers/Wii

    EDIT: To answer your main question, the WiFi USB adapter would give you internet, but it is a waste of money and would probably be a lot slower than a wireless router (which can do 20 times what the adapter can).

    Yes, you CAN. BUT, for the same price you can get a wireless router and have a much more reliable connection. If you're going to play games like MSC you're going to need as good of a connection as you can get. The transfer rate of the USB WiFi adapter isn't even advertised, so i'm guessing it's around 10 Mbps. The router will give you 54 Mbps. Over 5 times faster.

    So if I were to get the wireless router, I wouldn't have to buy ANYTHING else to get my wii online?
    and Where would I plug this wireless router?

    ok, what you need to do in order to know if that box is a router, then just go to the Wii configurations segment and go to internet then search for an access point in wi-fi and then if there is one open, click on it and start using it, if not then you do not have a router, you will need to buy one because it is the recommended connection.

    What kind of wireless router do I want? the names confuse me!
    My budget is a mere 50 Bucks.
    Also, which ones could I buy at walmart.
    to get things straight, I only need a wireless router and nothing else, right?

    Are you reading any of the posts on this thread? Come on! READ.

    Look at my previous posts to find that I found you a good, cheap router along with a simple diagram of how it connects to everthing.

    EDIT: Yes, the only thing you need is a wireless router. Everything you need will come in the box. Thats it. Nothing else. No need to spend more money.
