This channel functions as the Web Browser for the Wii. This channel was constructed by a collaboration between Opera Software and Nintendo, using Opera 9 as its core. Ideally, the functionality of this channel, inside Dolphin, would include: The retrieval of pages directly from a web site's HTTP or HTTPS server.

Problems

Keyboard Is Not Completely Displayed

The keyboard that appears when the user wants to enter an address is not completely displayed if "Fast Depth Calculation" is enabled. To display the keyboard correctly, disable the option. Fixed since at least 5.0-10516.

Configuration

This channel does not need non-default settings to run properly.

5.0 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4GHz AMD Radeon R9 280X Works fine. potatomy
5.0-9470 Windows 10 Intel Celeron G1610 @ 2.6GHz Intel Ivy Bridge GT1 Works as on Wii, due to the console limitations and the very outdated browser, some webpages won't load (Like Dolphin pages for example). Uses to have a flawless performance but after some use it suddenly drops to 25-30 FPS and takes longer to load pages. Youtube won't work, the advice to download Youtube Channel no longer appears, it can "load" videos these won't play ever. Highly likely is not a Dolphin problem though. EblfIYH
