Best wireless router for the Nintendo Wii
The Wii can use both wired and wireless routers, and similarly modem routers. Although wired (modem) routers are cheaper than wireless ones, there isn't usually much in it, and wireless routers provide extra benefits. Specifically, they are much tidier - with no cables trailing round your house, and they are more flexible - if you want to move your phone line or Nintendo Wii you don't need to worry about keeping them close together or buying a new router.
Connecting a router to the Wii will improve your console in a number of ways:
• you can browse the internet
• download the latest updates (also known as firmware) for your Wii - these can provide new capabilities and functionality
• you can play games online with your friends
• you can chat with your friends on-line
• you can get new games and new content from Wii Shop
But you want to know how to choose a wireless router for Wii. The Nintendo Wii conforms to the wireless g (802.11g) wireless standard, so nearly all modern wireless routers and modem routers from major manufacturers will work with it.
