Hi Gulajila,

You have to go through some simple steps that will connect your sister’s Wii to the Internet . Here are the steps you must follow to get connected and I have also uploaded images that will make it more easy for you understand. So lets get started:
 
1. First of all Power on your Wii console and press the A Button on the Wii Remote to reach the Wii main menu. Use the Wii Remote to select the "Wii" button.

2. Now you have to select "Wii Settings" to access the "Wii System Settings" menu.

3. Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, scroll to page two and select "Internet."

scroll to page two and select "Internet

4. Now Select "Connection 1: None".

Connection 1: None
(If you Don't see "None" in Connection 1, Simply Click the Connection 1 button, then choose "Clear Settings.")
 
5. Click on "Wireless Connection" and then "Search for an Access Point."
Wireless Connection" and"Search for an Access Point
(In case you are using a wire connection to your Wii console, you can connect the Wii console to the Internet using the Wii LAN Adapter (sold separately).This device plugs into the Wii console's USB port, and allows you to connect your wired router directly to the Wii Console with an ethernet cable. And one more thing Non-Nintendo manufactured USB LAN adapters will not work with the Wii console system).
 
6. Select "OK" and the Wii will display all the wireless networks it finds.

7. Select the wireless network that is yours.
 
If it prompted "Enter the Password or Key," then the wireless network you are trying to connect to has wireless security turned on. You will need to type in your security key or password and select "OK."
Enter the Password or Key
8. Select "OK," now "Save Settings," and then "Yes."
 
 
The Wii console will now run a connection test with your wireless network when the test is completed. You should see the following screen:
 
wii connection test console
 
As long as you see "The connection test was successful," the "Wii Support Code" does not matter and can be ignored.
 
In case your connection test was not successful , you will receive an error code.
 
Error Code 51330 or 52130: This means the security code you entered into the Wii is not the same one your router is set to. Don't worry just look at your router's settings and try again. Forward that refer step 7.
 
Now your connection ready to use and hope that will solve your problem.
 
Regards.
