    Welcome to the forums.

    To get connected, you just need a wireless router. The Wii has built in Wi-Fi, so it can detect the router; from there on, you just connect to it, and you're set!

    Welcome to the forums!
    No, it doesn't matter, just connect your router to modem. If you want to set security, get your router's IP address & enter it into web browser & change the settings.

    No. Only thing you pay is for purchasing Virtual Console and/or WiiWare games.

    Thanks for all your help! Sorry I'm kinda a newbie at this whole thing. Wii is on order through walmart going to see if I can get the wireless router hooked up to the computer tomorrow so I can have that done and waiting for the wii.

    No problem, thats why we're here.
    When you do get your Wii buy a game called "Muramasa: The Demon Blade" &/or "Dead Space: Extraction"
