    Help connecting wii

    I'm trying to connect my wii via dial-up. I keep reading about ways to do it but I'm lost. I was wondering if anyone knows how to connect using a dial-up using a usb wifi connector *not the nintendo one* or if there is another way to do it? I just want to do somethings online try something. If it's possible thanks.

    You'll need to figure out how to share the dial-up connection with the USB wifi adapter and then connect the Wii to it wirelessly using the adapters AP mode.

    And we can't all have glorious low latency broadband connections Styk, sometimes we have to make do with what we have.

    I've read that it "is" a possibility. I just don't know how to actually do it right Anyone know a guide or know how it's possible? I have read other articles but I'm still lost. Can't i do it wired? Connect the lan cord to the wii and the other to the computer and do it like that?

    I doubt if you'd find a specific tutorial as very few people use dial-up.

    Most of the problem would be with sharing the internet connection with the USB adapter as it is not designed to share a dial-up connection. Once the Adapter is broadcasting using AP or SoftAP mode then the Wii, or any wireless device should be able to pick it up.
