This guide is written for all of you Wii gamers who do not have an Ethernet adapter or a Wi-Fi access point to connect your Wii console to the internet with, who would love to be able to play online just like all the other Wii gamers. Read below to find out how you can use your Windows PC and the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB adapter for your PC to supply an internet connection to your Wii console.

The first thing you are going to need to do is be sure that you have all of the following items:

– A computer running Windows XP or above

– A Nintendo Wi-Fi USB adapter for PC (With the installation CD)

 

Once you have gathered the above items, you can begin to setup your Nintendo Wi-Fi USB.

 

The first thing you must do in order to begin using your internet connection, shared through your PC is to insert the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB into a free USB port on your PC and then insert the driver CD for the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB adapter into your computer’s disc drive and then open the disc drive in “My Computer” and select “Autoplay” or open the “Setup.exe” file and follow the installer prompts.

 

Once you have installed the drivers for the Nintendo Wi-Fi adapter on your PC you must restart your computer. While the computer is restarting, you can power on your Wii console and boot it to the “Main Menu”.

 

Now that your computer has restarted and your Wii is at the “Main Menu”, you can click the “Wii” button at the bottom left of the screen (a little white button with blue text saying “Wii”). Once you have clicked the button you must enter the “System Settings” button and then scroll left or right, until you find the “Internet” box. Click the “Internet” box and then select “Connection Settings”. After you have clicked the “Connection Settings” button you can select “Connection 1”, “Connection 2” or “Connection 3” and then find your Nintendo Wi-Fi USB and select the Wi-Fi USB and then enter your connection settings.

 

After you have entered your connection settings, your Wii console will initiate a “Connection Test”, which will connect your Wii console to the access point.

You will now be connected to your Wi-Fi USB and your Wii will happily connect to the internet every time your Wii console powers on, assuming that your PC is powered on and is connected to the internet. Enjoy your newfound Wii console wireless connectivity knowledge.

This guide is written to explain how to use the Nintendo LAN USB to share an internet connection between the Wii console and a LAN network with an active internet connection. Read below to find out how easily you can set up your Wii to share an internet connection with your LAN in less than 5 minutes.

The first thing you are going to need to do is make sure that you have the items in the list below:

– A Nintendo LAN USB adapter

– An Ethernet cable

 

The first thing you will need to do to create a successful internet connection on your Nintendo Wii console by using the Nintendo LAN USB adapter is insert the LAN USB adapter into one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii console.

 

Now that you have inserted the LAN USB into one of the USB ports on your Wii console you can then attach one end of your Ethernet cable to the adapter and attach the other end to your modem or router you must power on your Wii console and then, 15 seconds later turn on your modem/router.

 

Now you must get to the “Main Menu” by turning on your Wii console and then pressing the “A” button on your Wii controller at the “Warning” menu. Once you are at the “Main Menu” you must click the “Wii” button in the bottom left of the screen.

 

Now click the “Wii Settings” box. Once you have clicked the “Wii Settings” box, you must use the left and right arrows to scroll through the various options of the Wii. You need to scroll until you find the “Internet” option. Select the “Internet” option and then select “Connection Settings”.

 

You must now select “Connection 1”, “Connection 2” or “Connection 3” and then choose the appropriate network. In this case there should only be one network, which will be your home network or the name of your modem/router.

 

As soon as you have completed the steps above and selected the network you would like to connect to and then entered your password (if you are asked for the password) you can then click ok. Clicking ok will start the “Connection Test”, which will test your connection and then automatically connect you to the network permanently, unless you delete the network connection.

Be sure to send this guide to anybody you know who has chosen to use the LAN USB adapter for their Wii console who would love to utilize the Ethernet connectivity features of their Nintendo Wii console. Enjoy your newfound Nintendo Wii Ethernet network connectivity knowledge.

This guide is written keeping in mind the underestimation of the wireless network connectivity options provided by the Nintendo Wii, which are commonly being left unnoticed by many users of the console. Read below to find out how you can use the brilliant machine for your web activity just as you would with any computer as well as online gaming, assuming you are playing a Nintendo Wi-Fi compatible game.

The method I am about to explain to you will show you how to configure your Nintendo Wii gaming console to connect to and use a wireless access point in your house. The wireless access point, in case you are new to the concept of online gaming or wireless networking, is the point of which your gaming console connects to the internet.

 

The first thing you are going to have to do is power on your Wii console and allow it to boot up to the main menu. To allow the system to boot you can power it on and wait approximately one minute for the “Warning” screen to automatically disappear and bring the main menu to your screen, or you can just press the “A” button at the top of your Wiimote/Wii controller.

 

Once the main menu is visible on your screen you must move the pointer (which is a hand on your screen that moves when you point your Wii remote around the screen) to the small “Wii” button at the bottom left of your screen, which should be white with blue text saying “Wii”.

 

Once you have moved your pointer over the button you can then press the “A” button on your Wii controller to enter the “Wii Menu”.

 

Now that you are in the “Wii Menu” you can begin to set up your wireless network connection. To enter the configuration for the wireless settings you must move your pointer over the “Wii Settings” box on the right side of the screen and then press the “A” button on your Wii remote.

 

You will now notice that your screen contains various options for you to tweak, the option you need to find is the “Internet” options. Use the left and right arrows to navigate throughout the options.

 

Once you have entered the “Internet” options you must select the “Connection Settings” tab.

 

Now that you have brought up the “Connection Settings” tab you can begin to enter your new connection. To enter your new connection you must move your pointer onto “Connection 1”, “Connection 2” or “Connection 3” and then press the “A” button on your Wii remote.

 

Now, the final step. You must now enter the Settings for your access point by choosing the appropriate access point (this will be the name of your home router or your home network name) and then entering the password and security type of your Wireless network.

It is that simple, have fun playing online against the entire world. Enjoy your newfound Nintendo Wii console.
