    How does this work? I have a netgear and that goes slow with the wii to play online. So i plan on getting the cable so it goes faster that nintendo has. When we get the wii, we hook the wii up to the internet to use the wii channels right? What is exacty WIFi? WHen they let us play online with games, then we still hook it up the the computer as long as you have internet. I am confused, i dont know how i got confused but i did. Please explain this to me. I am stuck with Wifi, wii channels and online play. I cant put it together

    Wi-Fi, exactly is, Short for ‘wireless fidelity’. A term for certain types of wireless local area networks (WLAN) that use specifications conforming to IEEE 802.11b. WiFi has gained acceptance in many environments as an alternative to a wired LAN. Many airports, hotels, and other services offer public access to WiFi networks so people can log onto the Internet and receive emails on the move. These locations are known as hotspots.

    You need internet to view Wii Channels. If you've got a wireless router you should be able to connect.

    if your router has an antenna sticking out of the back of it, you are good to go. if not you will eather need to buy nintendo's USB thing so you can plug in a cable or buy a wireless router

    Does the router have an antenna on it? If it's just a standard hard-lined Netgear router, then that is not wireless. My Linksys has two antennas that stand straight up for emitting the wireless signal.

    Is nintendo selling it yet? It is wireless, i dont see any antenna sticking out of the back.... So when i get the wii, do i just hook it up to the USb or do i have to find the signal and connect it with the netgear. Then how does Nintendo's USb thing work? Sorry for the questions.

    Some routers do not have antennaes, like the one at my dads house. I was convinced I would have to use the neighbors connection for my laptop to be wireless but to my suprise he had a wireless conection from his router.
