    No

    On the box [For the router]
    It should say 'WiFi Certified
    If it does go on your Wii and search for an Access point

    This is how you do it!

    [Wii Menu>Options>Internet>Connection1>Wireless>Search For Access Point]

    Thats how you do it [The Options button is on the bottom right]

    If you use the USB you plug it into your PC and aslong as the PC is on [And Internet turned on] a DS Or Wii can pick it up and then they can use the internet

    But if you follow my Instructions and if you have a Wireless Router it should pick it up - My Wii picks up a connection from 3 houses away. I dunno who's router it is LMAO :devil: :devil: :devil: But it works so yours should!

    You have to go to the IP address of the router. Also I found that you can't access the internet through a range extender, or at least it wouldn't let me.
