Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post in so forgive me if it isn't!

Anyway, my girlfriend has got a Wii and it works fine on my wireless network. However, now she wants to be able to use the internet at her place, which doesn't have a computer let alone broadband.
I'm not sure what requirements she needs to be able to have a broadband hook-up to her wii. What I mean is does she need to have a computer there to install the broadband software to, or can it be done directly to the wii?

I told her to read the instruction manual that came with it, but she's impatient so hopes (read expects) me to know the answer so any help is great!!! :D

She needs to have broadband internet access to connect the Wii to the internet.

I figured that; what I mean is can she get broadband access with just the wii, or does she need a PC to set the broadband up on and then connect with the wireless network?

She'll need a computer to configure the router and get the internet connection setup. And if there are any issues with the connection, a computer is needed to do any network troubleshooting or re-configuring.

I thought a PC was needed for it. Guess she'll be creeping to me to get it; her birthday's coming up! Thanks for the help.
