Well, wifi doesn't just appear from nowhere, I use a modem. You can get this usb connector that connects the internet wire to your wii.

If you've got wireless internet, you shouldn't need the addition of ANYTHING. Your Wii should just pick up the internet in the Wireless section of your Wii options.

But from what I understand, you're using one of those cards you just put in the computer and get internet? I don't know about that.

You have cellular broadband internet.

WiFi and Cellular Broadband are not the same thing.

You do not need to get a router from Verizon, as one will not help you. Cellular Broadband requires a device with a cellular radio (I think Verizon calls them "modems"). Most cellphone companies provide a USB radio.

The Nintendo Wifi USB Connector has been discontinued, so you may not be able to find it.

If worse comes to worst, you can always get a LAN adaptor and run a cable to your computer's LAN port. Note that you'd have to turn on internet connection sharing on the computer.

The best option for you is the Nintendo WiFi USB connector. It allows you to use your computer as a wifi bridge. Being a network device, it will need drivers to be installed. The USB connector should come with a CD with the drivers on it. Drivers install like any other program.

Note that you will have to connect it to a different USB port than your cellular radio. The radio will need to connect you to the internet.

If you only have 1 USB port, or the verizon card is too big for the Nintendo card to fit next to, you will need to get a USB hub. You can get those at Wal Mart (you can probably pick up the Nintendo wireless bridge there, too).

Note that the Nintendo Wifi USB Connector has been discontinued, so you may not be able to find it.

ty but where do i get a nintendo usb stick and whats a nintendowirless bridge?

I made a mistake, Nintendo discontinued it. You can try WalMart or Gamestop, but don't have high hopes. If your computer runs Windows 7, forget it. There aren't Win7 drivers for it.

You could also potentially use ICS to connect a wireless access point to the computer, but I would have performance and reliability concerns about that.

This is why it is stupid to have cellular boradband as your primary internet access. You can't share it without jumping through hoops. If you had DSL or cable, it would be a simple matter of adding a wireless router.

AOSS is just a secure connection protocol. Yes, the Nintendo products support it, but on the other end you'd be in the same hole as you would be with standard wifi: The WAP needs to talk to the cellular network, regardless of whether or not it supports AOSS.

Your best solution, as I said earlier, is to get a Wii LAN adaptor and run a cable to your computer's LAN port. Next, enable Internet Connection Sharing on the computer going from the Verizon card to the LAN port. ICS turns your computer into an ad-hoc router.

ok so if i do get a lan adopter would i have to turn on the version wireless manager thing? and would it  take up MB every time i went online with wii?

YES. The Verizon software is your internet connection.

I am assuming by "take up MB" you are referring to a set amount of bandwidth on your account, IE. 2 Gigabytes a month or whatever (I pulled that number out of my ass, don't assume that's your limit). If that is the case, then yes, it will count against your bandwidth. Anything that uses the internet will count against your bandwidth plan unless Verizon designated something that doesn't.

If you're a minor, make sure your parents are okay with this. It requires changing computer settings.

well the router has to be connected to the modem in order for the router to give you internet at all  I used lynsys routers they work fine both my ds's and wii  are connected via the router. I have had no trouble finding the connection.

I am soooo stuck in the 1980's and 1990's when it comes to video game consoles...If I had a Wii, I probably wouldn't hook mine up to the web at all, just play the video game right there in the console.

*this music plays as I say this*

Same, I play very few recent games, mostly because they're not as good as the originals.

Been thinking of taking it for a spin on the internet soon, but I'm not really sure.

The internet is a scary place you know!
