    Want to get on-line gaming on my wii

    I want to get online with my wii however i do not have broadband or a phone line, the mobile company Three have just bought out mobile broadband which is a usb modem that just plugs into your computer and you can surf. All i wanted to know is can you use the Usb modem in the back of the wii??

    Any help will do

    many thanks

    Probably not. The Wii will connect online via wifi or via the USB-RJ45 network adapter.

    Most likely you'll have to use that funky adapter on your PC then also get a USB wifi adapter for your PC then deal with the messy setup of routing your Wii's internet access through your PC.

    The Wii has built-in wireless. Get a wireless router and hook it up to your cable/DSL modem, then configure the wireless connection between the Wii and the router.

    The best way to do get the Wii connected would be to buy a wireless modem router and not use the USB modem included. That way you can have both your PC and Wii connected to the internet at the same time. Plus there's also the added bonus of no wires. You can find a decent modem router with a usb wifi receiver included pretty cheap now.

    Plugging the mobile broadband directly into the back of your Wii won't work *waits patiently to be proved wrong* .. .. .. .. I think there are only 2 options available to you.. .. .. first - get your own broadband.. .. .. .. second - get friendly with a neighbour who has a wireless network and ask if you can 'borrow' some of their bandwidth.

    steal it from your neighbour, thats what i do. he`s stupid enough not to put a password on his connection, so hopefully one of your neighbours does the same. hence-FREE INTERNET!

    WII GAMES:-
    Wii Sports (obviously!)
    Super Mario Galaxy
    Mario and Sonic at the Olympics
    The Godfather. Blackhand Edition
