    Yes, you have to wait. There's an explanation here.

    It does a little, but at least you only have to do it once. :)

    I had the choice
    A) 7 days rule and much less cheaters
    B) Direct console creations and many cheaters.

    I have an idea but First an question is the Mac adress conected to my wii or or is it random from the network because if the Mac adress conected and Not swappeble you can check eventually with the serielle number :is this a real console or you can make seperally Servers 1 for emulators 1 for mods or hack and one only for your homebrew wiimmfi sd cheat

    I think you can set both a Wii and PC to return any mac address you want, you can't tell if it's a console or emulator.

    You could try to detect it by putting code into the game, which tries to find behavior that is different between a real console and an emulator. It may only work for a short while as someone can find the code you added, and change the emulator to prevent it being detected.

    Are you using Dolphin with a Wiimmfi Unbanner NAND, if so then that's why.

    Yeesh, some people are just so eager to cheat in public lobbies. I mean, other than Wiimm having a bit of a stick about people making fun of a Certain Part of his country's history (rather a small sticking point, honestly; that rule only gets you a slap on the wrist, not like the permaban for cheating - not like he hurls sexist abuse at a guy who draws Star Wars characters with big breasts :P), the rules are perfectly reasonable. And it's not like he's asking you to pay!
    There are some small, unique differences between how things are handled in all four of the formats (Wii, vWii, Wii VC, and Dolphin) that can be used to detect which one you're running on.
    Yeah, they're hardcoded into the network devices, but the computers those devices are connected to can make them lie.

    but yeah you should only megabump like that if you have an actual question to ask

    Until you use them, then Dolphin can be handled the same way as the Wii or the game patched to make it think it's a Wii.

    This post was made in 2016. Reviving old threads is pretty bad and against the guidelines. I don't mean you, I mean pyro.

    If you'd quoted his post then he would have got a notification instead.

    Anyway, you've joined in on the conversation on the thread too. So that is also bad right?
