    I dont believe that will work. The Wii has a Wireless adaptor built in. If you have a wireless router already then you dont need anything else. If you are looking to connect your wired network to your wii you will have to use the nintendo wired adaptor (I believe you plug eathernet from your network into the adaptor and it connects through the USB in the back of the Wii) or use the Nintendo wireless adaptor that sends the signal to the Wii. The adaptor you have here recieves signal to a computer.

    You're most likely looking for a wireless router. That adapter is used for computers that don't have wireless cards to connect to a wireless network.

    This is what I have and it works like a charm:

    Amazon.co.uk: Netgear DG834 ADSL Modem, Router with 4-port 10/100 Mbps switch: Electronics & Photo

    Its 50 UK pounds at Amazon UK but you might be able to find it on sale. Keep an eye out at your local stores. I got one for US$40 and it came with a free USB Wireless adaptor for my computer.

    Bobby1211 Would this router slow down my connection since it is already being used through to my computer from my dad's?

    It will only slow down if the Wii is downloading something, and even then you most likely won't notice.
