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. As of r7598, functionality is nonexistent due to the user being unable to enter internet connection settings, required by the channel.

Problems

Unable To Configure Internet Settings

When attempting to start the Internet Channel, a dialog box appears: "An Internet connection is required. Configure Internet settings now?". Selecting "Quit" removes the dialog box, but does not exit the channel. Selecting "Enter Settings" redirects the user to an unloadable page, inside the "Wii Settings". Even though the Wii Menu music is playing in the background, and the FPS, VPS and Speed are unaffected, the emulator has gotten hung up and requires a restart of the Wii System Menu to clear.

NOTE: Loading the "net" folder from a nand dump does not fix this problem, since the Wii System Menu is unable to read any of the "Wii Settings" menu and configuration settings. (Tested on r7598)

Configuration
