I bought a wii and it just sits here because we don't know anything about it. Can someone tell me how to hook it up to my pc/internet. Also, how can I download games and play them on the wii. And is there anything else that I can do with my wii, besides just playing store-bought games.
Second, yes you can connect your Wii to your wireless router (if you have one) and once connected to your router you can then download games off of their Virtual Console marketplace. This won't be spot on accurate, but here's a quick rundown on how to connect to your router:
- on the Wii, go to Settings, and there should be Network or Wireless settings or something along those lines - once you are in your wireless settings there should be 'Connect to Network' or your wireless router name should be showing up in the list - select your router and it should ask for your password, enter your wireless connection password and connect - figuring it connects successfully, you can now go back to the main screen and you can select the Virtual Console tile - in the Virtual Console you can look through a ton of games, there's a lot of retro games on there, and you can purchase games using Wii Points (you can either purchase Wii Points directly in the Virtual Console using a credit card or you can buy them in stores and redeem the code in the VC)
