    OK so i got a wii on friday for my birthday and i really wanna connect it to the internet. I dont have wireless internet. I have a phone socket at the top of the stairs, is it possible to plug the connector into this or do i have to run the cable all the way downstairs to my computer and to my modem.

    Thanks for the help

    I have my Wii right next to my PC. Nothing better than being able to listen to movies while working, and playing video games while rendering or eating food. Never eat near your comp!

    A wireless router is a far better long term deal than the dippy nintendo Wifi adapter.

    a wireless router is wireless internet, what you do is you buy a wireless router, unplug the wire from your broadband modem or other source of internet connection (cable modem, DSL modem, T1 port) and the computer, plug the internet source into the WAN connection, or port 1 if no WAN connection, then plug your computer into port 1, or port 2 if 1 is used for modem, log into router using one of the following IP addresses in interenet explorer or any other internet browser

    http://192.168.1.1
    http://192.168.0.1
    http://192.168.2.1

    set the required settings and change your SSID to a word you make up, the SSID is the name you look for when looking for the wireless router, point (in this case) your Wii to that SSID and have it be assigned an IP and connect, then download, browse, or do any internet thing to your heart's content

    Sorry that it is separated into 3 different images, I tried to put them all as 1 but the program I use to edit pictures dosen't work very well, anyway

    So i'm guessing that your current setup is like in number 1? (cable modem plugged directly into the back of your computer), if everything is hooked up correctly, it should look like number 2, follow your directions that some with the router, it may tell you to run off a CD that it comes with, do so, once it is finished setting up, it should look similar to this
    [​IMG]
    on the back of the router should be a WAN port and 4 network ports
    [​IMG]
    after you have everything set up, type in the IP for your router into your favroite interent browser, some common router login IPs are

    192.168.1.1
    192.168.2.1
    192.168.0.1

    the normal IP for Linksys brand routers is 192.168.1.1 if it is a linksys click here to log in, a dialog box should come up, some routers like BELKIN routers don't use a dialog box for logging in, but others like Linksys do, look in your directions for your username and password to log in, the common login for Linksys routers is

    Username:-blank-
    Password:admin

    if you logged in correctly, a page similar to this should show up
    [​IMG]
    go in and change the needed settings, have it successfully save the new settings, and click out of the window, some common settings that you might need to set up the Wii are

    -Change wireless channel to 1
    -Set wireless option to wireless B&G mixed
    -Change the SSID to something like a last name or a favroite word, the SSID is what tells you what network you are logging into

    Read the router's directions for more information, after you have completed all of the setup and settings, go through the wireless setup on the Wii, do a connection test (don't update yet), open shop channel multiple times, make sure you have no connection errors, if you do, chances are there is an incorrect setting on the router, if you log into shop channel multiple times with no problem, do a connection test again and update

    Hmm, your username is HelpMeGetWii, you say you don't have a Wii, um, the first word that comes to mind is, DUH, and my answer wasn't pointed to you anyway, so why you quoted it and asked me if I wanted your nonexistant Wii friend code (I say nonexistant since you don't even have a Wii), well, just quoting my post without an opinion based on the long quote itself, I think, is a waste of valuble posing space, but of course this is only my opinion, but I don't think it was such a great idea

    well, as far as I know, it will work on any high speed connection, meaning if you use dial-up and convert it to a wireless signal, i'm sure there would be a massive speed issue, but if you use DSL, T1, or satellite, it should work, after all, my dad has DSL at his office and I used my PSP on it with no problems, but out of the 4, cable is the fastest, so cable would be the best bet anyway

    no prob, it's what I do:thumbsup:
