This channel allows users to download Virtual Console Arcade games, WiiWare and Wii Channels directly to the Wii. Ideally the functionality of this channel, inside Dolphin, would allow for download of Virtual Console Arcade games, WiiWare and Wii Channels directly to the Wii System Menu. Currently, this is impossible to achieve, since Nintendo's servers detect whether the user is connected with a Wii console, or other Nintendo system; any other platform, or anomaly is immediately disconnected and banned from further server connections.


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)


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