What's the purpose of going online?



Just got my Wii, and thoroughly enjoying it. I notice on these forums that it can connect to the internet - is wifi built in so that I can just connnect it to my wireless router? And more importantly - why would I, given that you currently can't play online games? Am I missing something?
why would I, given that you currently can't play online games?


They are coming tho....Mario Strikers Charged is the first i think

Mine is connected via my wireless router, so I would have thought yours will as well. Cant comment on any problems you may have as I didnt have any :)

Thanks Stoobie. I just wasn't sure if i needed to buy additional equipment to connect...
And regarding online, as lots of people elsewhere have discussed connecting now, there must be a reason - can someone elaborate for me......
