Wii to Android? Nope. The Wii doesn't have internet connection sharing.

Android to Wii? Possibly, using an app called Easy Tether for the Android and additional hardware. The app has a Free/Lite version and a Paid for version ($10).

The entire process of getting it to connect is outlined here:

Of course all of this seems like more trouble than it's worth; once you get online, the Wii isn't exactly known for it's amazing online capabilities... but that might just be my opinion.

Cant get wii hooked up to wireless internet


hi

The Wii game console from Nintendo can connect to the Internet over a broadband connection for a variety of experiences, including: Web browsing, downloads, on-line chat and visiting virtually any on-line site including Flash 7 and 8 sites. The easiest way to connect to the Internet is to use your existing wireless high speed connection.

1Be sure that your Internet connection is running smoothly and the green lights are all up. If you have a Nintendo Wi-Fi connector, you need to have the software installed and your computer connected to the Internet.

2 Turn on your Wii.

3
Select Wii Options, which is located on the bottom left of the screen. This is the button with the Wii logo

4 Select Wii Settings.

5 Click forward to the second menu screen using the blue arrow to the right.

6 Select Internet.

7 Select Connection Settings.

8 Choose an open connection, indicated by the word: "none".

9 Choose a wireless connection.

10 Determine the best option for you: Manual configuration or Search for an Access Point.

11 On Search for an Access Point, your Wii will search for a wireless network to connect to and will display a list of available networks. Networks identified with a closed padlock require authentication to join.

12 Select your network.
    • If your connection signal appears yellow or red, the stability or strength of the connection is not strong enough for the Wii's Internet needs. If possible, remove any obstacles between the Wii console and the Access Point or change the channel on your router to avoid interference.
    • If your wireless access point does not show up when you choose, Search for An Access Point, your router may have Broadcasting set to "No" or "Disable." Some routers also refer to this security as "Stealth" mode. You can either change your broadcast setting to "Yes" or "Enable," or you can manually enter the SSID in the manual setup screen of your Wii console.
  1. 13Select Save and OK.
  2. 14Select OK on the next screen and the Wii will preform an automatic connection test.
  3. 15Wait for the Wii to connect and download any needed updates.

How to connect your Nintendo Wii to the internet


Hello,

In this tips and tricks guide I will go over the steps you will need to take if you wish to connect your Nintendo Wii to the internet. If you want to connect wireless you will need to be within range of a wireless access point. If you wish to connect via a wired connection(Ethernet to modem or Ethernet to router) you will need a Wii LAN adapter which is sold separately.

-Power on the console and press the A button to reach the Wii menu. At the menu, use your remote to select the Wii button at the bottom left.

-Now select "Wii settings"
-Now, hit the arrow on the right side of the screen to go to the next page and select "Internet"

g33k4u.png

-Select "Connection 1: none"
-Select "Wireless Connection" then select "Search for An Access Point"
-Select "OK" then the Wii will display all the wireless access points(wireless routers) that are in range.
-Select the wireless access point you wish to use.
-If the access point requires a security key, you will need to enter this key in. This key is set when you first configure your wireless router.
-Select "OK", then "Save Settings", and then "Yes".
At this point your Wii will now test the internet connection.

If you are using a Wired connection then you can connect the Wii directly to the router or modem and not use WiFi. Wii LAN Adapters are sold separately. If you have the LAN Adapter, follow the steps above up to the point were you select a connection type. You will select "Wired" instead of "Wireless. The Wii will now test your internet connection.

I hope this guide has helped you connect your Wii to the internet. Enjoy!

Regards,
G33k

    If i have wireless internect, how do i link my wii with it?


    Wireless Connection
    1. On the Wii console's main menu, click on the 'Wii button' in the lower left corner.
    2. This will take you to the settings screen. On this screen, click on 'Wii Settings'.
    3. In the 'Wii System Settings', click on the blue arrow on the right to reach the second screen of options. On this screen, click the 'Internet' button.
    4. Select 'Connection Settings'.
    5. Select an open connection, indicated by 'None'.
    6. Select 'Wireless Connection'.
    7. Select 'Search for an Access Point'.
    8. At this point, the Wii console will search for any identifiable Access Points nearby. Once this search has completed, you will be directed to choose the Access Point that you wish to connect to. Click 'OK' to display the list of available Access Points.
    9. Select your Access Point from the list of available Access Points.
    If your connection appears as a closed padlock, then the Access Point requires a security code or passphrase. The security code or passphrase can usually be found on the security tab of your wireless router settings.
    If your connection signal appears yellow or red, the stability or strength of the connection is not optimal. If possible, remove any obstacles between the Wii console and the Access Point. I've also found that changing the channel on your router to channel 1 or channel 11 can sometimes help with singal stability and strength.
    10. Click 'Save' followed by 'OK' to save your connection settings...
    11. ...and select OK again to start an automatic connection test.
    If the test succeeds, Internet Setup is complete and your Wii conosle is wirelessly connected!

    Instructions things you'll need:
    • Wireless router
      • 1 Determine if your Internet connection is compatible with the Wii's online console features. If you are using a dial-up connection you will not be able to connect to the Internet through the Wii console. The best connectivity is with a cable, DSL or fiber-optic connection.
      • 2 Start up your Wii. Go to the main menu. Click on the Wii icon button on the bottom left side of the screen.
      • 3 Select the "Wii Settings" button with a wrench icon. Go to the "Wii System Settings" menu.
      • 4 Click on the arrow on the right side of the screen to scroll to page two of the settings. Click on the "Internet" tab.
      • 5 Select "Connection Settings" from the menu that appears. Your screen should show three connection slots all saying "none" next to them. Select "Connection 1."
      • 6 Choose "Wireless Connection" from the pop-up screen. A new screen will appear that reads "Search for an Access Point," "Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector," and "Manual Setup." The easiest way to set up the Wii online is to select "Search for an Access Point."
      • 7 Wait a moment for your Wii to find an access point. When the words "Choose the access point you want to connect to" appear on your screen, click "OK."
      • 8 Pick your access point. Choose the point that is listed with a green signal strength icon.
      • 9 Save the settings by clicking "OK." Your Wii console will perform a test. A window will pop up asking you to perform a Wii system update.
      • 10 Complete the system update. Read and agree to the "User Agreements." You should be able to view movies, TV shows, websites, news and games from your PC on your TV.
