is it possible to do this with my macbook wirelessly? (the wii has wi-fi built in)

*note: it would seem that i would connect the wii to whatever network my macbook is on, but im on a campus and i need to SIGN IN to the network (which i dont think i can do with the wii)
QUOTE Thanks

the Wii has a built in wireless network card. It will be able to connect to any access point. However if you dont have an access point or if your have a wired connection to the internet from your computer you can buy the Wii Max (i think thats what its called). It's a USB connection that connects to your computer and makes your computer the access point. I dont know how it will work with a Mac since i havent installed it but i know it exists.
