    Yeah you can buy a USB Lan Adapter and a really long Broadband cable and connect that way. Also I think you may need a router if you dont already have one so you can connect to the internet with your PC and Wii simultaneously.

    download some software on my pc , making my pc talk to my wii making me able to go on line with my wii
    This part isnt really needed. Just get the stuff listed above and youll be fine


    Thanks for the sig, gidget!

    Only other way would be wireless but the since your Wii is really far from the PC it would go really slow.

    Well first of all, if you don't want to use wireless, you have to get the USB Lan adapter for your Wii. That's step 1.

    Next, if you don't want to run a long cable, you don't have many options. This might work, but I can't vouch for it. I've never used it:

    http://www.netgear.com/Products/Powe...rs/HDX101.aspx
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833122168

    Finally, you'll need a router at the other end so you can share your internet connection between your existing PC and now the Wii. With the router, you don't need to install or configure anything on the PC to allow the Wii to get online. The PC doesn't even have to be on.

    I'm no particular fan of Netgear. You might want to fully browse this category:

    There is a usb connecter...but Wireless Is the cheapest way. At Walmart they have $40 dollar Wireless boxes. They are really easy to setup, they work perfectly, and they are cheaper than buying the usb adapter and the really long ethernet cord.

    u have to pick one... wired or wireless...

    purchase list:

    wireless router
    (sets up a wireless internet connection for any wireless device)

    or
    wired router
    a lot of CAT5 cable
    RJ45 ethernet ends
    RJ45 crimper
    USB LAN adapter
    (a lot of work, isnt bad if u know what you're doing, i've done it enough)

    or
    USB WIFI adapter
    (plugs into your computer and sets up a wireless internet connection for just your Wii and DS (maybe, never messed with it), computer must on for it to work)
