    Yes, the Wii will connect to your router, and if it has a password protecting it, it will just ask for the password so it can access it. If you dont know the password, I suggest you search how to, I dont know how to find it myself.

    ok icetrash
    if you have broadband then you must have a broadband modem. is there anything else between the modem & the pc?
    if not then tell me the make & model of your modem & i will try to find out if it will work as a router

    :yesnod: yes you can
    if you have a password you will need to know what it is.
    if not then your modem is not secure. i suggest that you get it secured. your modem instructions should tell you how to do this
