    It probably could be done, but it would be a pain in the ass and would be too slow to do anything useful with. TCP/IP over Bluetooth does work, however, frame encapsulation for IP is a choke-point with this solution. Just go wifi or get the usb adapter.

    You set it up the same way you'd set up any internet connection sharing, except it won't work because bluetooth is not WiFi, and the Wii is not looking for a bluetooth signal for internet access.

    Even if you managed to set it up, the extreme bandwidth limitation of IP over bluetooth would make it near useless.
