Question: Can someone provide suggestions about making my Canon T3 wi-fi enabled?
As far as I can tell there are two options:
1). A wi-fi adapter that you can plug the sd card into.
2). A wi-fi enabled sd memory card.
Thank you in advance.

Yep. Eye-Fi Card is about it. See Page 230 of your manual.

Wi-Fi SD cards are terrible. The leading manufacturer of them went out of business. I wonder why.
I do not know if the external Wi-Fi adapter works with the T3, but I do know that it costs more than the camera. You would be MUCH better off buying an updated camera with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The Bluetooth makes the Wi-Fi setup a breeze.
However, understand this. A Wi-Fi enabled camera does not mean that it is fully networkable. All that it really means is that the camera can communicate wirelessly with other wireless devices using standard Wi-Fi frequencies and protocols.
I do not know what functionality you expect from having Wii-Fi, but be prepared to be disappointed. On all but the most expensive camera bodies, built-in Wi-Fi is somewhat limited, and SLOW.

A wi-fi card seems to be the only option, your first point would only enable a standard SD card to be wi-fi when inserted into an wifi adapter, not the camera. Once you remove the SD card you might as well use a computer that would allow you to share the contents via wi-fi or Bluetooth or direct.

I agree with Waddizzle, I bought a wifi card years ago and it was very disappointing and very slow...I have not used it since. I think the one I tried was from Eye-Fi or something like that I know it is lying around collecting dust somewhere and destined for eBay at some point.

No, I can't because it is a very bad idea. It will never work like you think normal wi-fi does.
