    Im getting my Wii on Friday 8th Dec like all U.K people xD
    But
    At home downstairs I have a Cable Internet Built In Modem
    To get Internet on my Wii Upstairs do I have to do the following...

    - Get A WiFi Compatible Router
    - Get The Wii Connecter Thingy
    - Connect Wirelessly using my Wifi Router from Downstairs

    If not please tell me how

    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.

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

    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.

    mines on wireless, 3 floors below my router, no problems ... that seems like good enough range to me.

    adding a router won't slow down anything; i'm not sure if this setup will work if you're on dial-up tho ... are you on dial-up or dsl/cable?

    When you say you are using a modem.... are you saying you are using Dialup Access? I dont believe you will be able to find a wireless dialup router. There is talk of using the Nintendo broadband USB adaptor after connecting to dialup... but I dont believe anyone has tested it yet.

    good ... so your "modem" isn't "in" your PC ... basically you'll disconnect the cable from the modem at your pc, connect it to the wireless router, then out from the wireless router into your PC; voila your done. well, then you hafta setup your wireless network, and then setup your Wii to connect to it, but thats whole nuther hour of fun.

    ahhh i dunno then ..... never seen an integral cable modem before; it should have an ethernet port on it anyways i would think, for connecting a router .. maybe check the manual.
