    The wii has wifi capability on its own, you don't need a wireless card.
    Even so I don't belive it would work.

    I was just browsing e-bay and saw a small usb ap that the seller says works and mine is virtually the same.also i think you are misunderstanding.wii has wifi capability but needs wireless access to the network.

    I did misunderstand, I didn't read the product description. It might work but that site says its $129. You can get the official nintendo brand wifi usb for about $40.
    That can share internet to the wii wirelessly.

    For the wep key are you using the passphrase? You might need the actual encreption key.

    Nintendo will be releasing a dongle you can attach to the Wii's usb ports that will allow a wired connection sometime in first quarter of 2007. It will cost $30 I believe.

    I think he probably meant wii.nintendo.com . He probably missed the button, they are right next to each other.

    Go to your router settings. The same place you type in your wep phrase, it should have generated multiple keys. Use the one that is selected.
