I'm going to start off by telling you that this isn't too easy, and I'm not going to outline each step. Things like installing an Apache server and a PHP module can easily be solved through google searches. The primary objectives that we need to accomplish are as follows:
* Set up an Apache server on your PC.
* Install the PHP module into your Apache server.
* Set up a DNS on your PC.
* Redirect the location of the Wii Shop, oss.shop.wii.com, to your computer.
* Change the DNS you have on your Wii currently to your own computer.
In order to accomplish the first, just download and install an Apache server from here
. If you have any problems with the installations, just try a google search, there's a wealth of documentation on the subject.
Next you have to install the PHP module into the apache server you just set up. The latest version of PHP is 5, but most documentation regarding PHP and Apache relates to 4, so it would be safest to download PHP4 from here
After that, you need to set up a DNS on your computer using a piece of software called Simple DNS Plus found here
. Install it and go to Tools > Edit DNS Records. From here, click tools again and go to Quick Domain Wizard. Fill the first box, the domain field, with oss.shop.wii.com, the location of the Wii shop. For the next box, the web server IP, fill it in with your own IP. This can be found by opening the command prompt and typing in 'ipconfig'. It usually begins with 192.168.1.X. Erase the text in the secondary DNS box and the DNS redirection is set up.
Now, we're going to download the actual files and code needed to access without disconnecting. These files can be found in .zip format here
. You need to unzip them to the htdocs folder in your Apache web server folder.
One last step, now all you have to do is go back to your Nintendo Wii and go into your connection settings. Go to DNS settings and click Advanced Settings. For primary DNS put the same IP that you put for web server IP in the last step. All that's left to do is to go back to your Wii menu and click the Wii Shop channel.
