    hey iwillgetu,

    its best to use a router or nintendo brand wifi connector. from what i know, the majority of wi-fi stick/card brands arnt compatible with the wii, which is annoying!

    by the way, willureallygetme? wheniamaghost?

    Well you can probably leech off of someone else's wireless connection actually. If you already have a Wi-Fi stick then try it out. If it doesn't work (and I can't see why it wouldn't) then I'd suggest getting a low cost wireless router. You can use it for your computer anyway. If you get a dedicated Wi-Fi stick like Nintendo's or Datel's then it'll cost you almost as much and not be as versatile. $50 ain't too much to spend in the long run.

    I'm an old-timer here and new to alot of the technology and their pros and cons.

    What is the benefit of wi-fi, besides convenience, especially if you live in an apartment or an old building that isn't or can't be wired with CAT-5 to use on a regular router? Seems that it's a security risk to use wirelss networks, but maybe I prefer using the sure-fire method.

    The wireless is nice on the Wii, and I just think it's better than having wires go all through the house. If you don't have Wireless in your house, you can buy an adapter that plugs into the USB ports on the Wii, and gives you an Ethernet port. So if you don't have wireless, that doesn't mean that you can't use the Internet on the Wii.
