You should be able to hook the usb-connector into one of the wii's usb ports (in the back) and into a wall. Then, go into your wii settings (circle in the lower left of the home screen) and go to online (you will have to scroll over). From there, you will be able to perform a connection test, and if your connection is good enough and passes the test you will be able to select 'use this connection.' You are now online. Good luck with your wii, and feel free to ask if you have any more questions.
