    What do you wish to do with it- the computer (PC) is a very general device.

    Still file sharing

    FTP

    The media players support all manner of network streaming/sharing methods if that is what you want.

    Control PC via Wii:
    WiiVNC hit the other day
    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/WiiVNC
    Wii linux should also have all manner of linux apps designed for such things although VNC is probably enough for most (ssh might be nicer but I will leave that to you)


    Do you want to see the video out from the wii on the PC.
    Two main options:
    1) Video card.
    2) VGA box- will convert the video out of the Wii into something a monitor can use.

    Really old drive models can use the PC as a chip of sorts via parallel port but I am just mentioning things for the sake of it now.

    To this end what do you want to do and maybe someone can suggest a way of doing it.

    Your PC needs a Wi-Fi card or you need a broadband adapter for your Wii (assuming you have no Wi-Fi. Broadband adapter won't work for homebrew)

    It depends on the operating system. If windows, you would need two different network cards (either a wired connection and wireless or two wireless). You could then set up either connection with internet connection sharing and have it set up so that your wii could find your computer as an access point.

    So the easiest way is to be connected to the internet on the PC through a wired connection and have a wireless card set up to allow sharing of the internet from the wired connection. This LINK is from 2002 but still works. It is for XP but can be done on Vista and 7,
