    Doesn't work like that.

    If you have a Wii LAN adapter plugged into the usb port you could.

    Short of buying a wireless router, buying the USB Wifi adapter that you plug into your pc's usb port, and it acts as a wireless access point.

    I'd just get a wireless router from eBay, Amazon, NewEgg, etc... Not sure what options are best for UK though. Wireless routers are cheap these days and you should be able to find one on sale cheap about now.

    No, you can't.

    I'm sure there will be USB based accessories in the future.

    you can get a wireless router for ur wii to work, or if you dont want a wireless router you can get a usb thing. I vote for router because it stays on all the time , unlike the usb, because the internet will go off when you turn the comp off

    Wii has wireless built in. All you need to do is provide an access point. The general concensus is to buy a wireless router. Check the "Router" thread for some models that are known to work and then just buy it from Amazon or some place local in the UK.

    Currently there is no online gaming. You can connect with your friends to exchange e-mail and Miis. You can also surf the shopping channel to buy VCs (ROMs of older titles.)
