Guide to access ALTWFC w/ Dolphin (Linux-Debian)

NOTE: For Dolphin Emulator use only
NOTE: This is for Linux computers only 
NOTE: This is for Debian 9 or 10 only. (You should be able to do something similar to make this work on Ubuntu)
NOTE: You need root access on your Linux machine

This guide assumes the following:
You already have dolphin installed and know how to run it. Guide -
You already know how to apply cheat codes in Dolphin. Guide -

NOTE: There's no need to edit any DNS settings in the Wii's System Menu Internet settings within Dolphin

1. Launch terminal. Enter the following command...

echo 'make_resolv_conf() { :; }' > /etc/dhcp/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/leave_my_resolv_conf_alone

2. Now enter in this command...

chmod 755 /etc/dhcp/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/leave_my_resolv_conf_alone

3. Open the file: /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf
4. Enter the following at the bottom of the file....

supersede domain-name "";
prepend domain-name-servers;

5. Save changes, close file
6. Reboot your computer.
7. You will need this cheat code -
8. Launch Dolphin, apply the cheat code, launch your ISO/WBFS. Connect on wifi. If you got EC 20100, something else is overriding your applied DNS settings. Do you have dnsmasq installed? Remove it. Do you have custom settings in Network Manager? Remove it. Do you have something in your /etc/hosts file making not point to the IP? Remove it. Do you have bind installed? Remove it.
