No special adapter needed, just a simple usb port on system and ofcourse the drivers needed to install the device thru which you are trying to connect . just install the drivers thru a cd that was provided to you and it will work

I can't connect to the Internet, wireless or wired. I want to put netflix on their but how?


In order for Netflix to work, you must have an active internet connection. You can connect to the internet on your Wii wireless or wired using a USB/ethernet adaptor.
If you don't have an internet connection, you can't use Netflix.

Trying to connect the kinect


First off make sure you have at least 190 mb of space in your HDD before trying to set up your kinect.
Setup:
Step 1: Make sure your xbox 360 is properly connected to the television with the AV cables and power cable to an outlet.
Step 2: Place sensor under or on top of your television on a stable flat surface.
Step 3: Depending on your xbox the sensor has two different connections. If you have the new slim xbox 360 then you do not need the extra add on connection you simply connect it to a special port for it on the back of your xbox 360 slim. If it is a older version xbox then you will need the extra power adaptor since it will not work without it.(Cable with power connection)
Step 4; (ONLY FOR OLDER VERSION XBOX 360): If you have a wireless connection adaptor unplug it from the usb port in the back of the xbox 360 and connect the kinect sensor's power adaptor into the port you took the wireless connection adaptor off of. There should be a special cable that will act as an extension for the wireless connection adaptor you unplugged this is so you can connect it directly to the usb ports in the front of the xbox 360. Then plug the end with the power outlet connector of the kinect sensor power adaptor into the wall socket.
Step 5: Turn on the xbox 360 and the kinect sensor should move up and down to adjust.
Step 6: Put kinect game in and it will guide you through kinect settings and your on your way to start playing! Have Fun!

I'm tryin to get into my Netflix but error code 51330 keeps poping up and denying me access how do i go about tryin to fix this


This code means a network connection cannot be established. Check you connection settings to make sure you are connected to the internet. If you are connected your router may be having some problems establishing a connection with your wii. You may have to reset your router to factory settings you will need to read your routers manual how to do so. Every router has a different way to reset it to factory settings it can be as simple as pressing a button behind the router or having to go into the software settings and doing it from there. If you reset it try to connect your wii to your router again by doing this: Step 1: Turn on Wii Step 2: Select the Wii button on the left side of main menu.
Step 3: Select "Wii Settings"
Step 4: Scroll until you see "Internet" and select it.
Step 5: Select "Connection Settings"
Step 6: Search for an open connection by "Connection 3:None button"
Step 7: Select "Wireless Connection" and search for access point.
Step 8: Choose the access point desired from the list and save the settings.
Step 9: Test your connection. If successful you are connected to the internet if not go back and check your connection settings.
Let me know if you still have problems. Good Luck!

How to connect to the net it keeps saying error


First you must have an active internet connection, second you must have a router (if you are trying to connect multiple items to the internet I.E. your computer AND the Wii), Third you have to determine whether your router is a wireless one or not, if it is then all is great, click on the Wii button in the bottom left corner, click on Wii settings, click on the right pointing arrow to go to page 2 of the settings, click on internet, click on connection settings, click on connection 1 (should say [none] next to it if it doesn't then you might want to clear the settings) click on wireless connection, click on manual setup, enter the SSID, enter the encryption key when asked for it then you should be good to go unless your router's security settings need changing. If you are trying to connect through a wired connection, then you need some other equipment... my Wii doesn't have an ethernet port, just an sd card port, memory card ports, and a couple USB ports, so I assume you need either a usb-ethernet adaptor or a router with a usb port. I've never connected a Wii over anything but a wireless connection so I could be wrong with regard to a wired connection.

Connecting to the online portion


i haven't used PS online before but i still know something is wrong with you connection. If you have a wireless rowder than make sure that every thing is plugged in and that the online and PC/activity lights are on. If you are not using a rowder than that any usb's are plugged in or call you internet provider and if they say anything is wrong ask how to fix the problem.
