    what do you mean by can't acess it because wrong region?

    is the menu on janapese and you can't understand? i have a translated japanese manual which you can use to guide...

    heres the translated manual.

    you only need the mac adress for wilbrand\letterbomb.

    maybe you can use other game hax? like batman\smash brothers or others?

    if you can't access settings.. you can't also use homebrew to display that information..

    2 ways you can get it without reaching settings or homebrew:

    1: you open the console with a screwdriver and look for stickers inside that contain the mac address (not sure if wii got that stickers, usually latptops have..)

    2: you connect the wii to the internet and with a computer you use a wireless hacking tool (like kali linux, or other wireless sniffer) to scan for wireless devices...

    Log into your router and in the status (maybe in a sub-menu of "wireless") you will see the MACs of connected devices. If you can't tell which one it is then check it while the Wii is off and then while it is on to rule out the rest.

    ho yeah, i forgot a person can just check on the router xD but it requires he had setup the wifi.., if he didn't setup wifi and can't access the router, he have to aircheck...

    anywho, op did "hit and run" (made the question and didnt come back) i wanted to know if he found a solution or something..
