if you do not have a wireless router, you can only connect to the internet using the Wii LAN adapter that allows you to plug in an ethernet cord.

the setup would take a cable modem that you would plug your cable into then an ethernet cord would run from the modem to either a wired router or into your Wii LAN adapter
