As far as I know you can only use a wii wirelessly. Nintendo does make a usb broadcaster to send the ethernet out from a computer to allow the wii to have internet connection

Cant conect to internet


  • Wii Error Code 51300 - 51399
  • This error is caused by the Wii being unable to connect to the access point.

    To solve this error : 

    Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

    If your router is using WEP encryption
  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.

    If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with : 
    WPA - PSK(TKIP)
    WPA - PSK(AES)
    WPA2 - PSK(AES)

    If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings

My wii nintendo channel keep coming up as error code 261412 every time i load it. This code comes up after you send the info


Error codes within that range usually refer to a communication problem with Nintendo's network. :1: Make sure your Wii has an internet connection, you can test this using the shopping channel, internet channel or by sending a Wii-mail to a freand. ::2: Go in to the setting panel and run a firmware (system) update to ensure you have the latest firmware. :::3: Try again at a less busy time of day, 15:00 on a week day is usually quiet. If you still have problems after a firmware (system) update message back. Nick. :)

Wii plug in


plug the Wii into your computer and then try the add new hardware in you control panel, make sure you are plugged into the internet when you do, I think the drivers may need to be installed when the Wii is plugged in and on with you internet connection going in case it needs to update the drivers. I sure hope that gets you up and going, If not just write back here and I'll see what other solutions we can come up with. thanks

Wired internet


The "smaller" plug you're talking about is an RJ45 plug, used for dial-up Internet - you'll get nowhere with that. You have a couple of options if you want to hook up your Ethernet cable. As you mentioned, yes there are plenty of USB to Ethernet adaptors out there, this is the simplest way of getting an Ethernet port on your computer. There are also PCI Ethernet Cards if you fancy your chances at installing it inside the computer, this will make it a little tidier and they're usually a little cheaper too. Your PCI slots, once installed will have the plugs located at the back of your PC, horizontally angled at the bottom - you usually have at least 4 slots, at the max of 7.
