    hi all
    the answer for the following question will help many, including me.
    can i plug a modem to the wii without lan adapter?,well i managed to do it,i have a cable modem, i took 1 usb cable that matches the modem and the wii (thats how i connect it to wii) power plug for the modem and cable plug for the modem and the wall.
    all the lights are active as if i connect the modem to the pc (though its not plugged to the pc,its plugged to the wii.
    now i need my user name and password to connect(i have the un and password) but where should i write it? and i have my isp's DNS address, hope some 1 knows.

    thank you in advance,
    daniel

    sorry but I don't think that's possible.

    as far as I understand it you can only connect wii through wireless, or LAN adapter. I've not seen any way of making a wii dial in using a usb modem, there are no settings for it.

    Yeah... I don't think it does usb for that. Though, you might be able to buy the LAN adapter and connect an ethernet cable to the modem if it has a port.

    I think you need a LAN adapter.

    Since if you plug it to your PC it probally ask for the USB drivers, and the wii do not have those drivers.

    well it didnt work but i think i will plug the lan cable to my pc(which i always do) and the usb to the wii, and connect through the pc to the internet while its connected to the wii as well.
    btw i dont need drive for the modem if i connect it with the usb.

    buy yourself a wireless router , plug your cable modem to the router , then you can connect your pc through ethernet (rj45) or wirelessly, and then your wii through the wireless also .
