    guy's I am computer stupid. I am sure this has been brought up before and I am just missing it. what do I need to get my wii hooked up to my computer. I have a dell and windows xp if that matters. I would like to be able to watch netflix through my wii as well as get updates to games specifiicly madden 10 I need favre on the vikings. computer is probably 35 feet from the TV along the wall and 13 feet straight from computer to TV. I have searched a bit but like I said I struggle with computers and all of this is so new to me any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Once you do have your Wii on the 'net, I don't know from experience since I don't have (or want) Netflix, but you probably need to go directly to the Netflix website via the Internet Channel on the Wii. From there, you'll probably either watch directly on-site, or download a specific Netflix Channel to your Wii.
