otherwise you need to buy a wii wireless network adapter or cable to hook up to computer USB port

Actually the wii has built in wireless, so if you have a router you should be able to hook up.

If the Wii has a ethernet port you can run a cat5/6 ethernet cable from it to the modem. If it doesn't have ethernet then you need one of these USB adapters;

You will need to reset that eMTA/modem by using the recessed reset button on the rear each and every time you change between having a computer or the Wii directly connected to it. To avoid having to always do this and to be able to have both online at the same time you would need to use a router.
