    I'd go for a LAN adapter, seriously, you don't want that you need to power on your pc every time you want to play online with your Wii.

    Just get a wireless router. They're pretty cheap and you don't need your PC on all the time, just the router. A router also comes in handy for loads of other things. I wouldn't be without my netgear.

    anyways like the poster said above me. just get a wireless router. you can use the internet with your PC, PSP and Wii at the same time. getting what you mentioned is just plain retarded, you can only use them on Nintendo and nothing else

    Wireless Router is definitely the best choice.

    An alternative is just to get an access point and hook it up to your PC. Old access points are slow and obsolete (11Mbit) so you can get them for like $10. The down side is that your computer will have to be connected to the internet with internet connection sharing turned on, but it's certainly a lot cheaper than buying a router.
