To surf the net on your Wii, you need the Internet Channel, which is a web browser. It's available for 500 points from the Wii Store.
I got it the first day, was surfing the web on my tv :D

watching youtube vids
To surf the internet from your Wii, you will need to spend around £3-5 pounds by purchasing the Internet Channel from the Wii Shopping Channel. It will cost you 500 points which is really cheap as a one off payment.

When you have the channel, you can surf by using the onscreen Wii keyboard, or you can plug in your own PC keyboard with USB connection for a faster more convenient way to surf.

Good luck!
