    Special thanks to @spacemeowx2 at https://github.com/spacemeowx2/switch-lan-play for the tool
    and @mastertwin for the tutorial

    this works on all firmwares, hacked or not hacked switch, Banned or not Banned switch. game updated prefered. Mainly useful to play in community public servers.

    things you would need:
    -https://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm
    -https://www.github.com/spacemeowx2/switch-lan-play/releases

    1. Edit Switch Internet settings
    -set IP adress to static
    -make up an IP address. your unique IP can be anything from 10.13.0.1 to 10.13.255.254 (Except 10.13.37.1 because its Gateway)
    -input your made up IP address at the IP address section.
    -Subnet Mask stays at 255.255.0.0
    -Gateway stays at 10.13.37.001
    -Configure DNS primary to manual. Configure DNS primary to 008.008.008.008
    if you have a hacked console and are not banned yet, use 90 DNS to avoid telemetry. 90 DNS settings are "163.172.141.219" for primary and secondary DNS to "45.248.48.62"
    -Save and that is it here.

    2. Download software

    3. Run Software
    -Install winpcap fully
    -double click on lan-play.exe and copy paste public server of your choice

    available public servers:
    35.236.10.223:11451

    189.222.60.255:11451
    [​IMG]
    -press enter. it will prompt you to enter your switch's LAN "interface".

    Your interface will be the option containing your PCs IP address.
    To find your PCs IP address, go to start on your PC and type in CMD. In CMD type: ipconfig
    -you should get something like this

    [​IMG]
    You may get more than one adapters, but In most cases, computer's IP address would be found in the first one. This is the one that connects to the internet and is connected to the router. it will be in the IPv4 section.

    [​IMG]
    In this case interface 5 has the same IP from earlier (computer's IP address). So 5 is the interface that must be chosen. Type 5 and press enter.

    if youre having problems with this step you can try different interface numbers until the switch can later on connect to your PCs internet.

    4. Connect internet on Console and verify connected to internet fully.

    [​IMG]

    5. Run game. Head to online play. Highlight Wireless Option. Hold (L+R+LStick ) to enable LAN mode.
    BEFORE:

    AFTER:

    5. Join room or create room. Creating a new room helps people join your room if your hosting a match.

    6. Enjoy Free Online play with friends/people around the world on the same server.

    Is it a private server? I'm guessing it uses DNS or some way of routing the Switch to connect to the server's addresses and stuff? I'm confused :unsure:

    What ever it is, it's most likely using wired ethernet lan, unless we have some way of doing it wirelessly too?

    From what i understood, he said "I'm playing right now in a banned console with my friends, and even better, for free. Soon enough i will make a tutorial on how this works, currently we took the whole day to make it connect but it finally connected, let's keep progressing."

    By the way, he left this on the facebook page he lists on the description (kinda explaining how he pulled it off)

    The way it basically works:

    Internet
    |
    [SOCKS5 Proxy] (optional)
    |
    ARP,IPv4 | LAN Packets
    Switch <--------> PC(lan-play) <-------------> Server
    UDP

    Make it work might be complicated right now, but with time it will get better and will get update, please ba patient!

    Oh yeah that works. The only issue is you have to setup your own server but it does work. My brother tested it with his friend already.

    That'd be cool somehow for those who are banned.
    If I may though...I think he is using a cheat! The way things are turning in his favor (missed by a red shell?) and the high speed of bowser are suspicious!

    That's just setting up a LAN play, not real online.

    Yes, it's only tunelled LAN party. Not online system.
    Fortunately it's easy to setup and requires only one open port server side.

    Its funny how some people believe just cause Nintendo banned you, your banned from going online, only thing they banned people from, is Nintendo's crap servers, Switch has a wifi chip, Nintendo can't disable it through a software update, it's apart of the device.

    Xlink Kai is also another way of doing stuff like this btw, it is how people keep SOCOM on PS2 up and running online but it can be used for other systems.

    I never used Switch Online features... but i highly doubt there is any possible way of more than 253 players playing in one session...
    Why use a /16 and not a /24 network then? You could have way more capsuled "channels" that way.
    Hell even for up to 29 players you could use a /27 subnet... or so the kids don't get confused make a /24 net and capsule it on the server side...

    If local play on the switch does not require a /16 network this is ill conceived in my eyes
