Question Is it actually possible to have wifi with just a router?

Hi there, someone said to me that you can have wifi with just a router, how do you do it? Is it actually possible?

I'm just wondering because I'd love to go on wifi! If not I can just wait for Christmas

Yeah. If you know the WEP key, you should be set.

OxyMoron will become famous soon enough

It works with a WEP key, but it won't work with WPA.

dsoutware is an unknown quantity at this point

it just depends on what kind of router you have. if you have a wireless router, then yes. YOu need to set it up with wireless keys, if you don't want one, you can too. use wireless key or WEP key and set up with mariokart if you don't have one you can try the DS own wireless setting and insert keys. It will be very fun.

You need a router and a modem.

But you can get a router modem.

Anyone knows how to set it up with WPA? Or how to change WPA to WEP?

Type your router's IP address into the search bar and it should show your router's settings. Somewhere it should say security settings. Change it to WEP if it's not already on there and write down the first WEP Key shown. Then go to your Wii's settings and to the Wiiconnect64 I think it's called and it should ask for a WEP key. Type it in and voila! Try the internet channel on your Wii to make sure it works. (Oh and in DS wifi compatible games, there should be an option to test your wireless connection) Good luck!
