Can Wii be used to access the Internet?

Yes. Wii is Wi-Fi-enabled, meaning it can connect to a wireless access point (such as a wireless router) to connect to the internet. If you connect your Wii console to the internet, you can:

  • Download Virtual Console games from the Wii Shop Channel
  • Use the Internet Channel to surf the Internet on your television with the ease of use of the Wii Remote
