You will need to buy the wired internet connector for the Wii, called the Wii LAN Adapter. It plugs into one of the USB ports in the back of the Wii.

There is a good step-by-step from Nintendo's website here:

    I am trying to get my internet connected to my Wii player. How do I do that? I do have internet.


    Firstly, the Wii can only use Wireless Internet out of the box. If you have a wireless router or access point, you're good to go. If not, you can purchase a network adapter that connects to the Wii and allows you to connect a standard network cable to it. This can be purchased at most electronics and game stores.

    If you do have a wireless router or access point, simply follow the simple instructions outlined at the following link:

    Hi, Our modem seems to work fine when plugged directly into a computer (we get internet okay), but if we plug it into anything else it won't get internet. We've tried two different routers and a Wii and...


    Hello,
    Without further information, my best guess is that your modem has the same IP address as the common IP address for routers and probably the Wii. Most wireless routers have the address 192.168.1.1
    Try connecting a computer using a hard line (a network cable) to your router and type in this address, it will most likely come up. If it does change it's static address to 192.168.1.12 (actually any number behind the last period above 1 and under 255.). Also set its gateway to 192.168.1.1 to access your modem. (Also in the router settings which are found by typing the address mentioned above, 192.168.1.1) Be sure to note this new address if you want to access your router without resetting it and using a hard line again. The Wii should automatically pick up signal from the wireless router. If for some reason you want to switch between the Wii and a Router by way of hardline, you must contact the maker of your cable modem (or cable company) and find out what the IP address is in order to access it's settings (the same way; by typing it's IP address into a browsers address bar.) By setting the modem to have a different IP there would be no conflict with the other products which (rightly) have the IP address of 192.168.1.1 as a default.
    Hope this helps!

    How to set up nintendo wii internet


  • 1 In order to set up your Nintendo Wii internet connection, you need to have high speed internet service, such as DSL, cable, or fiber optic.

    If you want to use a wired connection for your Wii, you will need to purchase the Nintendo Wii Lan Adapter and a long ethernet cable to reach your router or modem. The Wii Lan adapter is available from many sources for about $30 and the cable will cost you around $10 or more. If you want to plug in your computer and Wii at the same time, you will need a router. You do not need a router if you are planning on unplugging your computer when you use Wii over the internet. Honestly, wireless routers cost about $35 and don't require a cable, so I purchased a wireless router instead. Plus, I don't want an ugly cable running across the room.

    If you still want to use the Wii Lan adapter to connect to the internet, here are the steps to connect your Wii Lan adapter to your Wii game system:

    Make sure your Wii game system is turned off.

    Attach the Wii Lan adapter to the USB port on the back of your console.

    Connect the other end to an ethernet cable that goes to your router or modem.

    Turn your console back on.

    If you are using the Nintendo Wii Lan Adapter to connect to the internet, follow this step. If you are connecting to the internet via a wireless router, skip this step and go to step 3.

    To connect your Wii via a wired connection:

    Go to the Wii Menu.

    Click on the round Wii button on the lower left corner.

    Click Wii Settings.

    Click the right arrow to go to page 2.

    Click on the Internet button.

    Click Connection Settings.

    Click Connection 3.

    Click Wired Connection.

    Your Wii will do a connection test and hopefully everything will be all set. You are now finished.

    INTERNET CONNECTION


    To connect the Wii to the Internet you will need a wireless router in your home. Otherwise, you have to buy Wii lan adapter to connect it with an ethernet cable.
    To connect, go to Wii settings, then Internet, then Connection settings, then Connection 1.
    Then click wireless connection and then let the Wii search for a wireless access point (a wireless router).
    When your router appears on the list select it.
    If your router has a key, then you have to enter it.
    Press OK and you are finished.
