    if you have a wireless router...then you need nothing lol

    otherwise you just basically need a USB LAN adapter, ethernet cable, and a router if you wanna b simple :p thats about it lol

    im confused about that laptop part o_O

    Stay away from the USB wireless adapter. You need either:

    1. Internet connection - Wireless router
    or
    2. Internet connection - wired router - ethernet cable - ethernet adapter for Wii

    i like my USB wireless adapter

    it actually works pretty well

    my wii is hooked in my basement, and the usb wireless adapter is two stories above it

    and i can still connect to the interweb

    and it's not even pointed anywhere specific(actually pointing to the back of my computer(it's at the computer's side right now))

    Its a hack. It requires you to compromise security of your PC. It also wastes electricity by forcing you to leave the PC on all the time. It also only works with Nintendo products where a normal wireless router works with anything.

    haha that could be true

    i for some odd reason had 3 firewalls on my comp, i guess my parents are THAT paranoid

    now i only have 1(which is still effective, and it allows the wireless usb to work)

    but i don't care....i'm buying a laptop anyway so **** this comp, it could get 28461746124 viruses for all i care

    if i knew i was going to get a laptop, i would of just got a wireless router


    oh well too late now

    If that computer got filled with viruses it would effect your Wii.

    Just wait until more online games are available. Your USB adapter is going to suck when it makes all your games lag.

    So why have the USB adapter in the first place if you plan to get a router?

    SSID is the name of you wireless network. If you havn't changed any of the settings on your wireless router it will probably be the brand name (for example dlink, linksys or 2wire)
