    >wireless signal on my PC

    I don't understand... please explain

    Do you mean that your PC is wired to your dsl/cable modem... and then you want to use a PC wireless adapter as a transmitting router?

    I think you will need to ask the vendor of your PC device how to make it into a transmitting router, since I don't think that is a standard (or at all?) feature of a PC device

    You may, of course, connect a wireless router to your dsl/cable modem... if your existing modem does not have built-in wireless

    Just how do you get Internet?

    Ask the IT staff before you buy anything

    You SHOULD be able to use a network wire to connect a wireless router to the campus network (plugged into the wall) since the network will see that as one device

    You then wire your PC to the router, and activate the wireless in the router to connect to the Wii

    Be sure the wireless router is set to G band (the Wii will not use N band) AND be sure to use the wpa/wpa2 security in the router so other people don't use your wifi to hack into your PC

    This one should work... Trendnet TEW672GR

    Just like what JohnTSmith said. Get a wireless router (not a wireless access point) and register that unit with your school IT. Most likely they need the mac address of the unit and they might require it to have a static IP but they'll let you know. From there you could hook up as many device as you want onto your wireless router.

    THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED...
    If you have a wired dsl then you need a 40$ wireless router follow the intructions on it.

    Air card(vz card or sprint usb air card) anyway try to purchace a cradelpoint a little black box with a usb port on the back plug the card into the back and log on to the cradle points settings and deset the splash page because it will prevent your wii from connecting once thats clear then go to your wii and try to connect to it. the price of a cradle point is 25$.
