1. do i have to have my comp switched on?
2. will it work with the wii
Answer to 1. If you have your PC connected to the internet via a wireless router, then no, you don't have to have it on to have wireless internet; I use my laptop all the time while our desktop PC is turned off.
Answer to 2. As far as I understand it, Wii will connect to the internet just as the DS does; all it needs is a wireless internet connection, or a usb-internet adapter if you don't have a wireless router; a wired connection would also most likely be faster/more reliable. I'm guessing the routers that are compatible with Wi-Fi for the DS, which can be found here, will be compatible with Wii.
Hope this answers your questions
1. If you use the Nintendo USB connector, yes. If you use a wireless router, no.
2. As far as everything I've seen, yes
i am thinking of buying a usb adapter but i would just turn my comp on to play wi-fi, but what i dont understand is: how will i use the connect 24 with the wii, i dont want to leave my comp left on all day
Will Nintendo sell a Wi-fi dongle for those people that don't have a wi-fi connection in their house? If they don't how are they going to reach a broader market if they don't think about the situations of diffrent people?
whats a wi-fi dongle, is it like the nintendo wi-fi adapter?
will it sell one for the Wii
wot a dongle or wi fi adapter
a wifi adapter
well there is already a official wi-fi adapter which i think will work with the wii but you need your comp switched on but im not sure how this will work with wii connect 24
you want the site to buy it.... where you from uk or usa/can
yes please, from the usa
the URL is long, so here's a link
how will this work with the wii, because i dont want my comp on for 24hours
The Wi-fi Adapter is for Windows XP. Did Nintendo make any for other Operating Systems like Windows 2000 or ME
nah only for xp but do you know how this will work with wii connect 24
no i don't know, but i think nintendo is making another wifi adapter just for the Wii. I'm sure that they thought about how it would work with Wii Connect 24 because most people don't like having their computers on all night
They probably thought of that when they made the current adapter (like they did with the DS WFC, nobody really knew about it untill after the system was already released). Some features from WC24 will probably be available for download when you start up (like updates), others will have to be lost (like the Animal Crossing scenario), because they would be impossible to do without a live update from the system
