This page gives a how-to on accessing the Wii_Shop_Channel from your pc.

What you need:

Mozilla Firefox (I used version 2.0.0.1)

Changing Browser Identification (The better way)

Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/59 and download the User Agent Switcher plugin.

Install, restart, and add into your toolbar. Then go into User Agent->Options->Options->User Agents and click Add.

Add as the User Agent and put a description (Wii). user_agents

Then type in "Opera/9.00 (Nintendo Wii; U; ; 1038-58; Wii Shop Channel/1.0; en)" in the User Agent field.

Hit OK twice.

Go into Tools->User Agent Switcher->Wii.

Then copy one of the URL's below into the address bar.

Changing Browser Identification

Start up Mozilla Firefox and navigate to the address "about:config".

Right click, and choose New->String.

Type "general.user.override" in the first box and press enter ("general.useragent.override" in Firefox 1.5.0.9).

Then "Opera/9.00 (Nintendo Wii; U; ; 1038-58; Wii Shop Channel/1.0; en)" in the second box. user_agents

Now, restart Firefox, and enjoy being able to access the Wii Shop :).
