    okay so.... first of all, it depends on what you already have setup @ your home... If you already have a wireless network @ home, then it's just the matter of setting up your Wii to the network. If you do not have a wireless network, but have a computer with internet, then you can purchase a wifi thingie for the Wii (I believe it's $30). This wifi item is a USB connection and will work with your computer to make your Wii go online. Now... If you do not have neither of those... then you'll have to think of some clever way to get online. Just remember that Wii's have no wired network connections... everything is "wireless" now

    I picked up a Modem/Wireless Router for £30 (convert that from Sterling into your local currency).

    They're becoming a commodity, so they're pretty cheap these days.
