As I noted originally, the best way is to simply use a router ... in this case an EVDO router.   But if you want to do it without a router, just run the ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) wizard on your laptop; and set your Wi to use the laptop as a proxy server.

An EVDO router is just like any other router, except it is designed to work with an EVDO modem (such as your air card). You simply plug your card (or connect it via USB if you have a USB version) into the router, and all of your other devices will work through the router ... either wirelessly (via WiFi) or with a hard wired connection.

The EVDO router I suggested even comes with a car power connector ... so you can use it in a car, truck, boat, RV, etc. to share the signal to multiple PC's while you're on the road :-)

... I don't have a Wii ... but unless it has a menu that allows you to set it for internet access through a proxy, the answer is No.

... IF the Wii allows the use of a proxy, you can set your laptop for internet connection sharing; and then access the internet through the laptop.    But it's MUCH easier with the EVDO router :-)
