Block WII Updates in Router?
Does anyone know the adresses that the wii uses for upgrading the firmware?
I wan't to block these in my router, without losing all other Wii connectivity (Online gaming/shop etc.).
Are these adresses different per region (USA/EUR OR JAP)??
Excellent idea! I don't know the ip's off hand but it's my understanding that the IOS downgraders use the official Nintendo servers to downgrade. Clear your routers log files, then do a downgrade and check the ip's. I would assume they use round robin or some other load balancing scheme so it might be nessasarry to block the entire subnet.

After digging some more on the internet i found the following adresses:
Read the topic at Wii 3.4U and Auto-Update Soultuion - GBAtemp.net
Could anyone confirm this or have other suggestions/experiences?
