Ethernet to USB Wii Adaptor Answered

My sister finally unboxed our Wii after it just sitting there for a few months and shes been bugging me to connect it to the internetz. So anyway Nintendo being Nintendo they made the Wii without a Ethernet port so I was thinking I could just make a Ethernet to USB adaptor. Would this work with my Wii?

maybe. A cheap wireless access point is more certain (wireless is built-in to the WII), and perhaps not even much more expensive,
