    well, I do not know how it is working for the UK, but i know over here in the US that the internet wont be fully ready till 2007. However, there will be the weather channel on december 20th and the news channel is coming out sometime in january. I dont know how long it is going to take them to make the web browser available. As of now, all the internet does is let you download the virtual console games.
    Death to false metal!

    Hail Nintendo!

    Once you have a Wireless router, and you set it up properly, you'll be fine. Some routers have terrible distances and seem like shit. I suggest getting a Linksys.


    If I don't know you, and if I don't talk to you on the forums, don't send me a friend request. I won't add you and will not give you an explanation.

    theres 2 methods to connect with the Wii ... 1. wireless - all you need is your internet & a wireless router, and 2. normal - internet modem, router (unles your modem is also a router) & USB ethernet adapter for the Wii.

    if you don;t already have a router, go wireless, it's worth it and super easy to set up.

    I recommend Netgear, my whole house is covered, however it should be noted my house isn't a two story home.

    Wii_Smurf,

    If I understand you correctly you currently have a modem (dsl, cable, whatever broadband) going into your computer downstairs and your Wii will be upstairs.

    If that is correct all you would need to buy is a wireless router. The modem would then plug into the router and your computer would thin plug into the router (most wireless routers have 4 ports for wired) and your Wii will be able to connect to that wireless router with no extra equipment.

    -Bobby
    Search... Then Post.
