    Hello everyone: I am new to this forum as well as the Wii.

    I would like to connect to the internet but don't know how. My computer is on the main floor of my house but the Wii is in the basement connected to a tv down there.

    What do I need to purchase and do to get connected. Thanks

    Hi,

    Do you have a Wi-Fi router?
    If so you can connect your Wii to the internet via the options screen.
    It will scan for your home network.

    Any PC shop would sell them.
    Make sure its compatable with you type of internet connection.
    Either ADSL or Broadband.

    The Wii manual gives further details on how to connect to a router once it's set up.

    Thanks Skippy. Just pulled out the manual and will look for instructions. Incidentally I have a DSL router - couldn't I connect through that?

    You would need a Lan cable if it isnt Wi-Fi.

    It would say on the box/instructions, and/or the router itself.
    It might also have a aerial sticking out of the back.

    What make/model is it?

    Just connect it up and find out for yourself. If you get wi-fi set up, the rest is simple.
