    I would recomend using a wireless router. You don't have to run any cables, they aren't very expensive, and are the most effective. Just make sure and use some method of securing it (PM me if you would like help with this)

    Q: Are the online services for Wii free?
    A: Yes. The weather and news channels as well as WiiConnect 24 are free. Online play will also be free once it is released next year. The Opera browser will be a one-time fee, then the service is free. The shop channel is free to access, but you will have to purchase Wii points if you plan on buying anything.

    Q: How can I play against other people online?
    A: As of right now, you don't. Online play will not be released until next year.

    Q: What does exchanging friend codes do?
    A: By exchanging friend codes with another Wii owner, you can send messages, pictures, and Mii's to one another. Any Mii's that you have set to mingle can also travel to your friends' Wii's while yours is in standby. Eventually, you will also be able to play games online with one another.

    Q: How do I find my friend code, and how do I add someone else's?
    A: To find your own friend code, go to the main Wii Channels menu, then click the envelope in the lower right-hand corner. Next, click the "new message" button (the page icon in the lower left). Once you are there, click the address book (on the far right). Your friend code is displayed on the front cover. If you already have codes entered, press the - button on the Wiimote to flip back. To add someone's friend code, while in the address book, click "register" in the lower right. You can then choose to add either a Wii friend code or an email address.

    Q: Can I add friends from overseas?
    A: Yes, any Wii will recognise any Wii friend code. Wii uses a code system very similar to the DS (except that the code is generated by the system instead of the game). Some games had a feature that allowed you to see what region friends were from, but this has yet to be seen with Wii.

    Q: What is my Wii usernme? Is it the same as the Wii Console Nickname?
    A: Yes, they are one and the same, but what you enter for someone else's console name doesn't have to match what they entered on their Wii. It will work either way.

    Q: How do I know if someone has added my friend code?
    A: If you have not entered their friend code, you don't. This is for privacy reasons, both people have to enter each other's code. If you have added their code already, a few minutes after they add you, their name will turn from grey to black in your address book.

    Q: What does the Wii username do?
    A: As far as I can tell, nothing. The username you enter for friends does not have to match what they entered on their Wii.

    Q: What do I need to do to recieve email to my Wii?
    A: Follow the directions above to get to add a friend code, when you are asked for "Wii" or "other," chose other. You can then enter a friend's email address. They will be sent a message saying that their email was entered into a Wii, and to reply to confirm. They can simply click "reply" and send you anything. Their email is now registered in your Wii. You can only recieve emails from registered addresses. Your Wii's email is w[friend code, no dashes]@wii.com. IE: mi Wii email is w6865968992034420@wii.com

    Q: What do I need to connect my Wii to the internet?
    A: There are several options. You can use either a wireless router (must be B/G compatible), a Nintendo Ethernet adapter (not yet released), Nintendo USB WiFi adpter (the same one as for the DS), or a similar adapter (such as WiFiMAX). Read the instruction manual for your device for more specific directions. Also check out the "Wii Official Wireless Internet Connection Guide" thread for more information on the Wii-end of things.

    Q: Why has my post been deleted from the "Share Friend Codes Here" thread?
    A: Only posts that actually contain a friend code are kept. Please do not post people you have added or other conversations there, they will be deleted. Use the PM system (new members must make at least 5 posts before they can PM). Literally hundreds of posts have been deleted for not staying on topic. Nobody wants to waid through your conversation just to find friend codes.
    To PM: Click the person's username in the left-hand column, then click "Private Message this user". From there, it works just like email.

    Q: I am recieving an error code when I try to connect to the internet from my Wii. What should I do?
    A: See the "Getting Error codes? Post here for help" thread. Please do not start new threads for error code questions.

    Comment if you feel I have forgotten anything.




    i was wandering if you can use the wiiconnect24 to play online with your friends and whatnot
