    You need a router or hub CONNECTED to the internet via modem. The Wii will not work alone. The Wii just has a built in wireless card.

    True that but you still need something connected to a modem that is connected to the internet. The Wii (USB dongle or not) doesn't just magically find the internet...... You need to connect to a wireless modem, router or hub. If you are lucky you might be able to ride on a neighbor's wireless connection though but it's usually slow.
