    You need a wireless network that either has no security enabled or WEP-enabled. Beyond that nothing special required.

    In your start/globe menu, go to the "run" command. If you're on vista/7, you'd use the little white box near the bottom. Type in "CMD" and press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

    In the black box that comes up, type "ipconfig" and press enter. It'll list a series of four numbers as your "default gateway". Write those down. Go open any web browser, and enter the four numbers (like 192.168.x.x) into the address bar, and press enter.

    A login box should come up. if nothing comes up, you may not have a wireless router/gateway. If you don't, you'll either need to buy one or get a nintendo wifi USB stick. I recommend the router, as it can be used with normal computers/laptops and other game systems as well (anything wifi, really), so it's a better use of the money.

    Anyways. The username should be "admin" or blank, and the password can be anything from "admin" to "administrator" "pass" to "password" or "password1", or something else if you've set it differently. Ask whoever set up the router what the password to get into it is, or check this page.

    Then you'll be able to see what sort of wireless security settings you have set up. First make sure that SSID broadcasting is ON, then remember what the SSID is, it's the name of your network. Change it if you want. Turn MAC address filtering off. You will need to change the wireless security type to WEP if it's on anything other than WEP. It'll have you make a pass key or phrase. WRITE. IT. DOWN. After you save the changes, you will need to enter that key on any machine (computer or game system) that you want to connect to the internet wirelessly.

    Then in the game, go to the wireless settings. Have it scan, pick out your network from the list, enter the key/phrase when requested.
