Hi coolsoph,

Firstly, take note that Windows Vista doesn't support the Nintendo USB connector (currently there is now way of making it work on Vista, hopefully this will be resolved with the release of Vista Service Pack 1).

Secondly, and this is if you are using Windows XP as your computer operating system, try these steps to enable XP to share it's Internet connection with other computer (for ex your Wii):

1. Click Start -> Control Panel
2. In Control Panel open the Network Connections applet
3. Right-click on your active connection (will be named something like "Local Area Connection" if you use a cable to connect to your router or "Wireless Network Connection" if you use a wireless technology to connect to your router).
4. Click on Properties
5. Select the Advanced tab
6. Check the box named "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the Internet Connection Sharing area.
7. For good measure you can restart your PC after checking the box

I hope this is helpful information and thanks for using the FixYa services
Regards

    Nintendo wii to pc


    How do you mean "connect" to your PC?

    If you mean you want to connect to the Internet from your Wii (for updates, Weather, News, etc) using your Dell PC's Internet connection, then you will need to get the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.

    This will let your Wii use your Dell PC's Internet connection (while the PC is on, at least).

    If you mean you want to use your Dell PC as a controller for the Wii, or to send/receive data from the Wii, there is no way to do this as far as I know.
