Since 3.5-2143, Wii games running in Dolphin can now connect to the network in order to play online with other Dolphin users but also Wii users. This requires a few steps to setup: for copyright reasons, we can't distribute with Dolphin some of the files that are required to connect to the Nintendo WFC network. However, these files can be acquired from an official source by following this guide.

Getting the Wii operating system files

Download the NUS Downloader application, extract the ZIP archive, and launch the NUS Downloader application. Check the "Keep Encrypted Contents" box, then use the menu to select the latest version of IOS 13. Click the "Start NUS Download" button to download the Wii operating system files from Nintendo.

Wait until the download is finished, then go to the directory where you extracted NUS Downloader. From there, browse to the "titles\000000010000000D\1032" directory and check that the 00000011.app file exists. It will be required for the next step.

Extracting the certificates from the operating system
