    Does anyone have any idea about how much the price will be monthly for online play and such for the Wii?

    For your first question:
    Source


    Yes, you can connect Wii either way. If you want to connect it using a wire, you must have a Wii LAN adaptor, which you plug one end into one of the two USB 2.0 ports on back of Wii and the other ethernet part into your router.

    You need nothing but a wireless router and internet connection to get Wii online this way.


    You haven't asked any stupid questions. Don't worry what other people think. You're new and have questions, good questions. Hope to hear more from you.

    I'd suggest checking out 101 Wii FAQ for other questions you may have, although parts of it need to be updated.

    Glad I could help.

    Now, as for this last question, nobody really knows. Nintendo has said it's going to use the Friend Code system, but that each Wii will have it's own code rather than each game. If you don't know what the Friend Code system is, it's what the DS uses for online play and if you want to play with anyone, you'll need their friend code to play (it's like a 10-digit number for each game), this way Nintendo insures you won't play against people you don't know, which they think is good. Most people, however, want to play with random people, too. Nintendo has said they've heard complaints about the Friend Code system and thus will be modifying it. How they do that is unkown.

    My guess: You're Mii will be like your Xbox Gamertag. If you don't know what a Mii is, it's a character you create on Wii that you can use in different games like WiiSports. This would make the most since to me. Then, you could start up a game and in the game's online lobby, you can challenge people to a game.

    We'll learn soon enough when Wii finally launches.

    Yeah, hold on just a second. There's a list on Nintendo's website that tells what wireless routers are compatible with the DS (and thus the Wii). Let me find a link to that so you can check to see if it's one that's recommended.

    And feel free to continue asking questions. I'm personally going to bed soon, but there are other who can answer your questions. There's nothing wrong with not knowing something.:)

    *EDIT*

    Alright, go here to see what routers are compatible and what routers are really recommended and which one's just don't work at all.

    Hope that helps.:smilewinkgrin:

    **EDIT**

    Just looked and that router is compatible and recommended. Go here to see.

    sweet, alright well also..if im buying this router simply for the Wii, does the router have to be configured on a computer?..

    or can i just hook up the router, turn it on, turn on the Wii....and it works?


    seems to simple

    Yeah, as far as I know, it should work without the need to configure the router using the computer.

    I thought that recently they decided not to go with the friend code system?

    They've stuck with friend codes but its a per system code rather than per game.

    Everybody hates friend codes but I think there a really good idea, if my daughters playing online I dont want people teaching her swear words or being sick.

    I think it will be like the DS where you can play against random people but you wont be able to communicate with them, the way it should be.

    ok lets see you add nothing then multiply that by nothing and then you split that in half and then add 3.14 X 0 and taht gives you 0$ per month...

    Oh, I didn't know it worked that way. I thought you had to enter in friend codes to play online at all, but that's cool if you can play with random people, but just not be able to communicate with them.
