    easy tiger, slow down.

    you say you have the usb adapter, by that im guessing you mean the nintendo wi-fi adapter? that goes in your pc, it acts as a wireless transciever that your wii can connect to.

    the wii already has wireless capabilty, so using this adapter allows it to connect to your pc, and therefore your internet connection.

    does that clear things up a bit?

    If you arent using a router just unplug the cable from your pc and put it into lan adapter. Make sure the connection type is set to wired in your wii settings, just leave the rest on auto.

    If auto doesnt work (it probably wont) then just put the settings on manual, and key in the exact same settings that you use on your pc, which can be gotten by going to start->run->cmd and then type ipconfig /all. (while you have the internet plugged into your pc)
