    Nah I'm pretty sure they have an ethernet port on the Wii, and if they don't then you can still get it wireless. Simply buy a USB device such as the one sold for the DS, connect it to your pc and while the pc is on the internet the USB device will let the Wii connect through it "piggybacking" on the internet as it were, wirelessly.

    If you want to connect Wii to the internet via a wire rather than using it's built-in WiFi capabilities, then you'll need a USB/Ethernet adapter because the Wii doesn't have an ethernet port, it has two USB ports. The adapter is a short USB cord that has a little converter at the end, with a ethernet port on the end of the converter part, which you will plug in the ethernet cable that connects to your modem or router.

    So does this mean if you download it before june 2007 you will have it free or that after 2007 you will have to pay for it even if you have got it before june.

    No, here's how it works: From Wii's launch until June 2007, the Opera web browser will be free to download. Then, from July 2007 on, if you haven't already downloaded it, you will have to pay a small, one-time payment. That's it! You will not be charged anything after that.

    Hope that helped.

    Yep, just make sure to download it before July 2007 and you'll be fine.

    As soon as I get mine home, I'm gonna try and download it because the later in the day I try, the more people there will be trying to download it, which will make it take longer.
