Do I need a wireless desktop card for my desktop computer if I only want to go wireless with my nintendo wii? I don't mind the computer being wired but I don't want to run the wire to the living room for the wii

I just set my sister's Wii up for Internet use. You must have a wireless router for the Wii and run through the instructions for setting it up. Getting a wireless router AND a wireless PC card will free both uo from any ethernet cables, but you don't need the card for the PC. It will be wired to router and router to modem.

Wireless for Wii only will just require the wireless router. Set up for Wii, after you have router going , is in the Wii Menu. It is much, much easier to go to support.nintendo.com for the Wii setup and get their 800 number for the W29 Channel. Calling a live person to walk you through it is better than me trying to get the steps across here. Althoough the Wii will/can do an automatic wireless search for the router, there may be some changes you have to put in for the SSID.

Her PC is old and her son has talked her into getting an iMac. Super fast. Think she'll like it although she hates change. I have computers with XP and some with Vista. The newer PCs are Vista.
