    I know that they ban Wii using the MAC addresses and since there was this Ocarina code that was recently released to bypass this ban, I'm just wondering how does it work? I know that the code allows users to change the last 2 digits of their MAC address to any other 2 digit combinations to bypass the ban but I want to know why it doesn't work for USB loaders and if I'm banned from one game, does that mean that I'm banned from my other WiFi games? Also, is there a way to permanently change your MAC address?

    Not sure if the ban is game-specific or not, i've never been banned. I'm surprised it doesn't work with loaders.

    Changing the mac permanently is likely impossible. The MAC is effectively a serial # given to a network adapter at manufacturing. To change it (on a wii anyway), you'd need to get another adapter (wi-fi module).

    Actually there is a new code. Region free, and works for any game with online.

    It creates a fake Mac address, so it works amazingly. Godly code, works really well. It beats to error code.

    normally the MAC Is branded into network devices and can never be changed,
    but you can modify the MAC value once it's in RAM or modify the function which reads out the MAC directly.

    ZZ = Desired LAST MAC address value (it should be different to real MAC)

    Ah yeah apparently it needs Gecko OS 1.9.2 so when thats compiled in it will work fine with USB Loaders.

    As far as Iam aware you can never change a MAC address, you can only mask them.

    I strongly advise not to use that code not could it cause having two network devices with the same MAC being online but when you cheat again someone else might get banned because you were using his MAC you might not care but if enough peple do that and people who get banned for no reason will complain, nintendo will come up with some new ban method.

    don't cheat online not even for fun .

    It is good. It's fun, too.
    And you missed an apostrophe and had an extra "e" in gaming.

    And it's only the FTW hackers who suck. 4TL hackers are awesome (Like NinARM1).

    Sorry Dad, I promise not to have an opinion ever again and I promise to work on my spelling.....

    Edit:, okay I just read that back to myself and realised how it may sound, it supposed to come across as a joke - my apologies...

    Overall, I'll slowly abandon Wii Online playing, and moving to XBox Live. Cheat save, b*tches [​IMG]. Not to mention that you can kick people out of the game there. The Only Wii game that supports kicking people is MOH:H2...why can't other games have that?

    How many people have the same last 2 digits of the Mac address?

    I'm just saying, from what I know about IP's, our last 2 digits are always changing after it resets or something, we essentially own the set of last 2 digits and we have regular comcast, so I think it shouldn't affect people.

    Maybe last 1.
